Publisher Description

From the Edge of Apocalypse:

Deception Well is a world on the edge, home to an isolated remnant surviving at the farthest reach of human expansion. All across the frontier, other worlds have succumbed to the relentless attacks of robotic alien warships, while hundreds of light years away, the core of human civilization—those star systems closest to Earth, known as the Hallowed Vasties—have all fallen to ruins. Powerful telescopes can see only dust and debris where once there were orbital mega-structures so huge they eclipsed the light of their parent stars.

No one knows for sure what caused the Hallowed Vasties to fail, but a hardened adventurer named Urban intends to find out. He has the resources to do it. He commands a captive alien starship fully capable of facing the dangers that lie beyond Deception Well.

With a ship's company of explorers and scientists, Urban is embarking on a voyage of re-discovery. They will be the first in centuries to confront the hazards of an inverted frontier as they venture back along the path of human migration. Their goal: to unravel the mystery of the Hallowed Vasties and to discover what monstrous life might have grown up among the ruins.

Edges is a new entry point into the classic story world of Linda Nagata's The Nanotech Succession.

How ... how did this get published

I guess I am the first non fake review for this book.

It’s bad. It’s badly written. How dry can you make interstellar dialogue? So dry you can skip a few chapters sand miss nothing. Not joking. Literally skip sections and nothing has happened.

And then there is the absurd premise of how the characters can split themselves into Mille personalities.... to what end, who knows but it’s unnecessary and confusing so naturally that’s in this book. I mean it was probably either that or good writing with character action building up development and plot value— and clearly the author lacks the ability to do the second path.

This book is bad. Do not buy.
