Publisher's Summary

Return to the third book in the Revenger Trilogy, for another thrilling tale set among the stars....

Quoins are accepted currency throughout the thousands of worlds of the Congregation. Ancient, and of unknown origin and purpose, people have traded with them, fought for them, and stolen quoin hordes from booby-trapped caches at risk to life and limb throughout the Thirteen Occupations. Only now it's becoming clear they have another purpose...as do the bankers who've been collecting them. 

The Occupations themselves are another puzzle. The rise and fall of civilisation may have been unevenly spaced across history, but there is also a pattern. Could something be sparking the Occupations - or ending them? And if so, what could it be, lurking far beyond the outermost worlds of the Congregation? 

The Ness sisters are being hunted for crimes they didn't commit by a fleet whose crimes are worse than their own. If they're to survive, and stay one step ahead of their pursuers - if they're to answer the questions which have plagued them - it's going to require every dirty, piratical trick in the book....

Tense and satisfying. Scifi that's 100% Original!

I really loved it. Tense and satisfying. I really enjoyed the way it wrapped up the Revenger trilogy. If you like the steampunky space pirate world that is the Revenger series, you will definitely miss out if you don't read this.
I feel like "ghosty gubbins" for sure after this...

I read the audiobook version and Clare Corbett hit a home run, such a great job. A more in depth review to come! (less)
