Jeth Seagrave is the leader of the Malleus Shades, the galaxy’s most accomplished and elusive band of teenage mercenaries. Working for feared crime boss Hammer Defoe, Jeth and his crew have made their name stealing unsecured metadrives – the complex piece of technology that makes faster-than-light-speed travel possible. The ITA–the far-reaching organization that produces and polices metatechnology–has been on Jeth’s tale for years, and is looking for any chance to take down Hammer’s black market metatech trade.
But Jeth doesn’t care about any of this. All he wants to do is earn enough money to purchase his parents’ ship, Avalon, from Hammer. His parents, former ITA scientists, were executed for treason years back, and Jeth, his sister Lizzie, and their uncle Milton fell into debt to Hammer. Finally, Jeth has found himself just one job away from freedom. This job, however, is going to give Jeth much, much more than he bargained for – and when he finds himself in possession of information that both Hammer and the ITA will kill for, he is going to have to ask himself how far he’ll go to get the freedom he’s dreamed of for so long.
IF YOU LOVE FANTASTC, CREEPY, THRILLING SCIFI THEN THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU! Even if you don't love fantastic, creepy, thrilling scifi you should still read it because anybody would love a book this grand!
There was never a dull moment in this book, nor was there ever a lull in the plot! It was very fast-paced and attention-grabbing! Plus, the characters were so perfectly complex!
JETH is the leader and captain of Avalon and with that responsibility comes bravery and a robust personality! He fights and navigates and kisses (yes, kisses) his way through all his problems with ease!
LIZZIE was such a real character. She was very energetic, fun, and sanguine! I don know what else to say about her, but she was my second favorite (After Jeth).
SIERRA was very mysterious, so I didn't really know what to think of her for the longest time! She was calm, collected and always seemed to know what was going on. A very superior character. I liked her almost fearlessness and her warrior attitude!
I hope you've gathered enough to know that WITHOUT A DOUBT you should read this book!
