From BSFA Award–winning author Gareth L. Powell comes the first in a new epic sci-fi trilogy exploring the legacies of war

The sentient warship Trouble Dog was built for violence, yet following a brutal war, she is disgusted by her role in a genocide. Stripped of her weaponry and seeking to atone, she joins the House of Reclamation, an organization dedicated to rescuing ships in distress. When a civilian ship goes missing in a disputed system, Trouble Dog and her new crew of loners, captained by Sal Konstanz, are sent on a rescue mission.

Meanwhile, light years away, intelligence officer Ashton Childe is tasked with locating the poet, Ona Sudak, who was aboard the missing spaceship. What Childe doesn’t know is that Sudak is not the person she appears to be. A straightforward rescue turns into something far more dangerous, as Trouble Dog, Konstanz, and Childe find themselves at the center of a conflict that could engulf the entire galaxy. If she is to save her crew, Trouble Dog is going to have to remember how to fight …

Quotes & Awards

  • “A quintet of narrators brings Powell’s magnificent space opera to vivid life…It’s a bold, ambitious story, with shifting points of view and multiple far-flung locales, and the audio adaptation would probably have been a mess if it had been the job of a single narrator. The team of five distinctive voices keeps listeners oriented—each of the narrators creates an easily recognizable character—and helps us know when the setting or POV has changed…An elegantly constructed sf story, beautifully written and expertly narrated.”

    Booklist (audio review)

  • “A nice blend of hardware and humanity…with elements of today and a logically projected far future…Leaves a group of enthralled readers hungry for more.”

    New York Journal of Books

  • “This is a true space opera, full of suspense, and mystery, and stuff blowing up real good—but it’s the humanity of Powell’s vision that truly makes it something special.”

    Barnes&NobleSFF.com

  • “A smart, funny, tragic, galloping space opera that showcases Powell’s wit, affection for his characters, world-building skills and unpredictable narrative inventions.”

    Locus magazine

  • “A book dominated by strong women, hairs-breadth escapes, interpersonal conflicts, and ultimately, the dogged determination of human beings, and others, to become better versions of themselves.”

    Sci-Fi magazine

  • “A big book that hits all of the buttons that make space opera one of my favorite genres—a cold war ready to turn hot again, Big Dumb Objects, interesting and thorny interstellar plots and problems, and a set of compelling characters (including, memorably, an excellently depicted ship AI) caught in it.”

    Tor.com

  • “An emotionally wrenching take on life in a war-torn far future…The pace picks up as the threads begin to come together, leading to an explosive finale with strong series potential.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Fast, exhilarating space opera, imaginative and full of life.”

    Adrian Tchaikovsky, author of Children of Time

  • A Tor.com Reviewers' Choice for Best Books of 2018 (So Far)
