Dark Metal is book nine in the Dark Universe setting by Jason Halstead
Amber's living on borrowed time. Bounty hunters are looking for her and, more importantly, her ship. Mistress Hereckti, matriarch of Hereckti Holdings, has declared their contract broken. The Uma is now considered stolen goods. Amber Haynes and her crew: Pirates.
Amber knows a guy though. A guy that can find his way out of any situation, no matter how bad. He's got a solution for this one too. It involves them traveling hundreds of thousands of light years to a star system nobody alive has ever seen. It's a gamble, but without risk there's no reward.
Dodging the bounty hunters is the easy problem. Dealing with what they find when they get there… well, sometimes civilizations die out for a reason.
