Megan has a mission. But must she sacrifice herself to save our worlds? Pilot Megan Jacinth has three goals, and they all seem unattainable. She must find her friend Bash, who she'd left for dead to save her own life. Then she needs Bash's unique skill-set to locate an ancient space-faring entity. Lastly she must use this Wanderer's knowledge to save human-occupied worlds from an alien incursion. The odds seem impossible, but the threat is terrifyingly real. Megan finds Bash, but the person she'd known and loved is a husk of his former self. Bash is also held captive by her greatest enemy: Gregor Tarrant. Tarrant wants the Wanderer too, even more than he wants her life, with motives less pure than her own. And he's close to finding Megan's most closely-guarded secret. A race across space to reach the Wanderer seems Megan's best option. But this entity is also known as the Marauder, and is far from benign. The price for its secrets may be just too high. Megan should know, as she still bears the scars from their last encounter ...The Times has said Gary Gibson is 'To be considered alongside the leading triumvirate of British hard SF writers: Al Reynolds, Peter Hamilton, and Neal Asher . ..a treat for all fans of intelligent space opera' and SFX has called his work 'Gripping, imaginative and morally complex'.
