On Vega III, where the jaded inhabitants pursue lives of malicious intrigue and decadent pleasure, Lady Nimisha Boynton-Rondymense has always been an anomaly. Disdainful of the frivolity of her fellows, she prefers the exciting and challenging world of her father, Lord Tionel, owner and principal starship designer of the famous Rondymense shipyards. Precociously gifted, Nimisha becomes Lord Tionel's secret assistant - and, in the aftermath of a shocking tragedy, his chosen successor at the helm of the shipyards. But supplanting her father's designated body-heir, the callow Lord Vestrin, is a slight that Vestrin and his mother, Lady Vescuya, will not easily forget. Or forgive. Preoccupied with carrying on her father's ambitious plans for the Mark 5, an experimental long-distance cruiser, Nimisha dangerously disregards Vestrin's animosity - until a solo test flight of the Mark 5 goes horribly awry, marooning Nimisha light-years from home on a planet as deadly as it is beautiful. Now, Vestrin and Vescuya are given the chance they've been waiting for: to reclaim the shipyards. . . by any means necessary. Only Nimisha's child, Cuiva, a girl every bit as ingenious as her mother - stands in their way. But for how long? For just when her daughter needs her most, Nimisha is unable to help - and in a precarious situation herself. But Nimisha has never given up in her life - and she's not about to start now . . .

    " I kind of thought it was, like you know, lame. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas Foster | 12/15/2013

    " Very nicely structured book, with a few nice plot twists, very well written, once again Anne McCaffrey aquits herself well "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 12/5/2013

    " Again, just pleasurable escape. McCaffrey's strength is that I grow to care about the characters and their story. Read very quickly but enjoyed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 11/14/2013

    " I borrowed this from the library some time ago but it was worth a re-read when I found a copy in a charity shop. An exciting story well told. Good strong female lead character. A keeper! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nathanael Boehm | 9/8/2013

    " Enjoyed it, although the ending was a bit of a fizzle. I was hoping that pirates might be behind the creation of the wormholes or something but we don't get any answers just a vague hint of something funky. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 5/31/2013

    " This is one of McCaffrey's more sci-fi books (rather than fantasy). As usual, she creates a believable universe for Nimisha, who ends up stranded far from home in her fancy spaceship. There's a sequel, the title of which escapes me at the moment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 2/20/2013

    " This is not the sort of thing I would read and I probably wouldn't have gotten all the way through it. I ended up listening to it on Audio and the narrator was excellent. I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Victoria | 10/30/2012

    " Am reading this on recommendation of a friend who shares my taste in fantasy books. Here's hoping I share her taste in Sci-Fi. I've never really been enticed by Anne McCaffrey before, so who knows how this one will go. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole MacDonald | 5/27/2012

    " Loved this book!! Anne McCaffrey is fantastic at her sci-fi - as a writer and reader I am in awe :) "

    " It is nice to see a futuristic novel where we behave in a civilized, ethical manner when confronted by alien species. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pinki | 10/31/2011

    " Strange for Anne McCaffrey to have a standalone book, but this one got me turned on to her fantasy worlds. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 AMD | 10/2/2011

    " An excellent and fresh Sci-Fi story from master fantasy writer Anne McCaffrey. If you love adventure, exploration and out space, this is a book not to miss, especially for Star Trekers. "

    " Not as good as lots of her other work, I thought; some serious plot/editing errors in the first half. "
