Publisher's Summary

Wrongly convicted of treason, Gideon Quinn has spent six years harvesting crystal under the killing suns of the Morton Barrens, until the day a general of the Colonial Corps arrives with an offer of freedom, and the chance to clear his name.
Gideon doesn't have to think twice, and with his pet draco Elvis on his shoulder, he takes 'ship for the city of Nike in search of revenge - and justice. But mostly, revenge.
What he finds is a dodger named Mia, a city steeped in corruption, and a menace at the heart of the Corps which could bring Fortune's new and fragile peace to an explosive end.
And that's just his first night in town.

An epic read!

This book! This book! All I can say is, wow! wow! and some more wow! This is testament to how amazing and epic this read was!

Such a great book and listen! Fast-paced with plenty of action and snark!

Well done to the narrator for doing an amazing job voicing the characters!

So completely worth the wait!!!!

There were some audio issues with this first download but this listen was sooooooo worth the wait!!!

The story was incredible! That's not hyperbole. That's just the actual fact. From the first introduction of Gideon Quinn to the last delicious ending, this book was exceptional.

Gideon Quinn is the very definition of a hero: a person noted for courageous acts or nobility of character. There was no shortage of either with this listen!!

Gideon kept finding himself in compromised situations, not of his making, and even when down, was never out.

There are a variety of minor characters introduced but each and every one had depth and a purpose. I'm telling you, this book was seriously good.

The narration was outstanding. Again, not hyperbole, just the facts. This was my first Tim McKiernan listen but it certainly won't be my last. There were a myriad of characters and McKiernan delivered on them all. Seriously, this listen was like a radio drama!!!! Perfection.

The ending satisfied and then left me wanting more. I'm so glad there is a book two. I cannot wait to get back into this world!!!

A great start what happens next?

The story is an engaging story, plenty of action and a pinch of mystery with well-written characters in an interesting world that I would like to know more of, a war in its past, strange technology, keepers and best of all Elvis the Draco what not to like.

Gideon Quinn is a likeable character despite all his flaws his journey from the start of this story to the end as well as the flashback to his past made an interesting listing experience.

The narration is good, clear, easy to listen to and all the main characters are very well voiced with unique voices and clear emotions. The audio quality is good but there are a few times when a line is repeated.

Well worth a listen and I can recommend it. I look forward to listening to the next one.
