Publisher's Summary

From the Aurealis Award-winning author of A Crucible of Souls.
To Inquisitor Angel Xia, it was just another corporate killing on a backwater planet. But as the bodies begin to pile up and she finds herself a target, she realizes she's stepped on one toe too many. Barely escaping attempts on her life by powerful agents with seemingly limitless reach and influence, Angel senses even her co-Inquisitors can't be trusted. But as the web tightens, she receives a cryptic message from a computer program claiming to be a little girl in desperate need of her help. She insists she's being held prisoner by a major corporation, but is this just a trap to silence Angel...permanently?
Now a fugitive with her life inextricably linked to the girl in the program, Angel is taken to extremes she never knew she was capable of and to forgotten places at the edges of known space that hold the darkest secrets of humanity and the greatest threat to its future.

Dammit, I liked it.

After I got through the initial part of the book, I kinda felt this book was just a rehash of ideas thrown about for decades. I was all set to shred the book apart. Dammit. I actually liked it. Although it did end up where I thought it would, it was a bit unique...not perfect, but I was entertained.

Note, it really could have been is a rehash, and the some of the steps through the book felt forced...but dammit, I still liked it.

Well, I hope there is a sequel...maybe I can dislike that one.
