Review by Lilac

Pepper and her cyborg ally, Kade Starke, scavenge space junk hoping to find that one-in-a-million hunk of rock that will make them rich. Then they find the sad wreck of an old shuttle, and a hunk inside named Dr. Logan MacDonald. Oh, and several billion credits worth of long-lost artifacts and art. Now everyone from pirates to Imperial forces want Logan and his treasure. To get the artifacts to where they can be shared by all humanity and not just a wealthy few, Logan and his scavenger friends may just have to turn the treasure ship into a literal time bomb.

Scarred emotionally and physically, Pepper and her cyborg, Kade Starke, travel around space scavenging junk from old shuttles. They hope to make an amazing find and when they stumble across a wreck of an old shuttle, they find more than they could have hope for in the form of Dr. Logan MacDonald and several billions credits worth of art and artifacts. Logan was cryogenically frozen years ago and unaware of what has gone on in the meantime. His knowledge of the past is very valuable and soon Pepper, Kade, and Logan find themselves battling pirates and Imperial forces who seek Logan and the treasure from the ship.

Full of surprises, this was an interesting story set in a world that fascinated me. I enjoyed learning about the world and watching as a relationship developed between Pepper, Kade, and Logan. They all helped each other and shared an easy camaraderie that I enjoyed. It was interesting to think that the true treasure of the ship was actually Logan as he has knowledge of our modern world that this future world longs for such as knowledge of books and history. I must say that the ending of the story came as a great surprise and is one that I never could have predicted. If you enjoy the Spaceport series, pick this one up to add to your collection!
