Only an ancient system of transport gates has kept Maggie and her companions, the human bounty hunter Gallen O'Day and the sentient bear Orick, one step ahead of the Dronons. But now, out of worlds and out of hope, they are stranded on a planet called Ruin, far beyond the gates and off the star charts. The desolate rock and its hundred inhabitants are ruled by the ancient eccentric, Lord Felph, who has spent 600 years searching for a mythic relic. Maggie, Gallen, and Orick must risk their lives to find this relic, for without it nothing will stop the Seventh Swarm.

"(Farland) can dispense the flash and dazzle of space opera while at the same time providing touch, real, sympathetic characters" (Rger Zelazny)
This book fell short of my expectations based on the previous two books in this series. What turned the story into what I classify as a "bad book" was the proselytizing bear. A little more action and a little less preaching would have improved the story.
Should have spent my credits on something else! I would have been better off! It took longer to write this review than to realize that these books were duds!
