    When a young physicist unveils an efficient star drive capable of reaching the core of the galaxy, veteran star pilot Priscilla "Hutch" Hutchins finds herself back in the deepest reaches of space, and on the verge of discovering the origins of the deadly Omega clouds that continue to haunt her.

    Story

    I love most of Jack McDevitt's books, but this one spent way too much time on the development of a new spaceship engine, and not enough adventure.
    I fell in love with the characters after great development (7.5 of the 13 hours are character development and the engine development. However, less than half the book had the adventure portion that makes us love Hutchins.
    The author raced through three different plot lines (two of which were tying loose ends from previous books). Could have gone into great depth if he would have focused on one of the 3 plot lines in his marvelous universe.
    I love character development and the author is great at making us care about the characters, but we want them to do more, after reading about them for 7.5 hours.
    Felt like Mr. McDevitt was in a hurry on this book.
    Still worth a read for true fans.
