The third book in Valdes’s Clarke Award–shortlisted, LJ Best–Booked “Captain Eva Innocente” series (following Prime Deceptions) finds Eva entering the Grand Melee in order to earn money to keep her ship going and her crew safe. It’s during this fight that an intergalactic phenomenon occurs, changing everything: monoliths have appeared at each of the space gates and are transmitting a message, surrender or die. An alien named Antimatter informs Eva that the Artificers sent the monoliths. Antimatter is a member of a species called the Proarkhe, a group with whom the Artificers have been warring with for eons. Antimatter’s story is enough to send Eva, her psychic cats, and the crew of La Sirena Negra on a thrilling treasure hunt to find three hidden mechs that can be used to save not only her crew but the universe as well.
VERDICT An unusual combination of National Treasure and Star Trek in which a space crew races across a universe filled with an array of different beings.
