Average Fan Rating:

Rating from TwistedSciFi ★★★★½ 


In Spinward Fringe Broadcast 6: Fragments, the Order of Eden has completely taken over Pandem. Tens of thousands of followers have populated its decimated earth with millions more on their way believing in the canton that they are the saved. Eve is their savior and the keeper of Paradise but few have seen her as Lister the Child Prophet speaks in her name making many promises but delivering few. Eve is waiting on the arrival of what she considers her children, the Eden Fleet, but worries that her humanity might make them see her as the enemy.


Meanwhile the Triton has been devastated by its battle with the Caran battle cruisers at Ossimi Ring Station. Some of the crew are revolting and demanding to be paid what they consider they are owed. With the Captain not on board, everyone is unsettled as they hide in a nebula from three battle cruisers, their only option to escape is to use a defense that has little chance of success.

This was a glorious book with battles warred on all fronts. It was wonderful to finally get into Eve’s mind and what was happening with the Order of Eden. I loved how Lalonde jumped among the characters in this book giving different viewpoints. My favourite part of the book is when the crew who are left on the Triton run the Ghost Ship scenario. This book was truly epic and left me breathless for more.
