The crew of Another Road are back, closer than ever to the biggest score in the galaxy. . . if they can stay a step ahead of the Justice Department agents and Company men tracking them.
An engineer with a fondness for weapons. A captain with no memory. An obsessive genemodder who loves to tinker. Meet the crew of Another Road.
Josune, Roystan, and Nika have escaped the company thugs trying to kill them. They've gotten a new spaceship to replace The Road (after it was blown up underneath them). And their new ship is armed to the teeth with dangerous weapons, courtesy of Josune. All that's left to do before they head out to find the legendary lode of transurides is to restore Roystan's memory. To do that, they need to collect the genemod machine Nika has ordered.
But first, they have to shake off the Justice Department agent and the Companies tracking them.
It should be easy. They've done it before. What could possibly go wrong?
The Australian sisters writing as S.K. Dunstall follow their rip-roaring far-future Stars Uncharted with a vigorous sequel exploring the depths of space and human deceit. As the Honesty League attempts to bring order to a galaxy governed by a corrupt justice department that is in the pocket of exploitative rival trading companies, the ragtag crew of the spaceship Another Road plan their next big score. Nika Rik Terri, a "modder" specializing in dramatic physical makeovers, desperately works to keep Capt. Hammond Roystan alive as his body deteriorates and mercenaries and the justice department alike pursue their ship. When Eaglehawk Company chairman Wickmore and his mercenary captain Norris threaten the Zell colony near the dreaded galactic Vortex, only Nika can rescue them. Another Road's colorful crew of criminals links up with honest Alistair Laughton, a disgraced justice department official trying to protect the Zell colonists and the alien Ort to save the colony. Readers unfamiliar with this universe will struggle to untangle the complex story lines, but the vivid action and lovable characters keep the pages turning. Series fans won't be disappointed.
