"a spirited space opera that combines all the required ingredients of the subgenre"

The first two books of the trilogy introduced the ne’er-do-well crew of the starship The Ion Raider, and their discovery of the ancient superweaponry of an alien race known as the Elders. Ten years later, they have disbanded, only for an unknown foe to track down and murder them one by one. Captain Cornische returns to the helm to save his remaining crew, embarking on a quest to the pocket universe where the Elders have stashed a Pandora’s box of wondrous technology – unless a vile military cabal and evil aliens can get there first. Whates weaves backstories and action effectively as the novel builds to a rousing battle-scene climax.
