Shadow Captain

Shadow Captain

The gripping sequel to the Locus award winning science fiction adventure, Revenger, tells a story of obsession and betrayal as two sisters hunt for the greatest treasure in the universe.

Adrana and Fura Ness have finally been reunited, but both have changed beyond recognition. Once desperate for adventure, now Adrana is haunted by her enslavement on the feared pirate Bosa Sennen's ship. And rumors of Bosa Sennen's hidden cache of treasure have ensnared her sister, Fura, into single-minded obsession.

Neither is safe; because the galaxy wants Bosa Sennen dead and they don't care if she's already been killed. They'll happily take whoever is flying her ship.

Shadow Captain is a desperate story of cursed ships, vengeful corporations, and alien artifacts, of daring escapes and wealth beyond imagining ... and of betrayal.

    Shadow Captain, the sequel to one of 2016's best science fiction novels, is even more entertaining than Revenger; in fact, it's preposterously good. This futuristic pirate tale from master space-opera...

    Well I didn’t like Revenger but hoped I’d like this one better-but all I can say is, “Alaister Reynolds-what’s going on here??” His previous stories are some of my favorites. The actions is ...

    When starting this one, I thought it's the last volume of the series, so I kept expecting things to happen and the plot to advance, and the book got to the end without much happening - I figured out t...

    4.5 stars ...The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars because the pacing was a little slow at times especially when the focus was on Adrana and Fura's relationship and all of their secrets. It was als...
