Nothing sane travels the starway. Today it brings disaster.
In the far future, humanity settles the stars, bioengineering its descendants to survive in a harsh universe. This is the second book in the science fiction series, The Backworlds. A space opera adventure.
Revenge is on Craze's mind. He chews on it everyday along with the relentless dust on Pardeep Station. He dreams of grander business and wealth, enough to make his father choke.
That's the dream consuming him when the interstellar portal opens, spitting out a ship that that should no longer exist. A battleship spoiling for a fight, yet the war with the Foreworlds ended two generations ago.
The enemy takes over Craze's tavern and aims their dastardly guns in his face. One wrong move and the shaky truce will end. So will Craze and his friends.
Can he outwit them? He must, otherwise Craze and the Backworlds won't survive.

It starts with Lepsi gone and Pardeep being overrun by the bad people. I don't like it when books skip the story line inbetween. I would expect it to start with lepsi taking off and disapearing but maybe the author wanted it that way. It's not a bad story. Looking forward to the next book even though they aren't on audible.
Craze was my favorite. The poor guy keeps getting messed with and I hope he gets stronger.
