Out of the Dark is book two in the Dark Universe setting by Jason Halstead
The crew of the Uma has returned a forgotten technology to the universe. Technology so advanced and mysterious it changes everything. Fire breathing aliens and people able to move objects with their minds are only the beginning of the genetic mutations taking place.
The crew of the Uma have firsthand experience with the forgotten technology of the lost Ampythean race. The only others are the Kesari, the secretive merchant race that controls travel throughout the universe. And the Kesari don't like competition.
The race is on. The Uma and its crew have a price on their head in the billions of credits. They possess knowledge worth ten times that, but finding someone to sell it to is proving to be even more difficult. With the Kesari closing in they are running out of hope and out of places to hide.
