Publisher's Summary

The galaxy has seen great empires rise and fall. Planets have shattered and been remade. Amongst the ruins of alien civilisations, building our own from the rubble, humanity still thrives. And there are vast fortunes to be made, if you know where to find them....

Captain Rackamore and his crew do. It's their business to find the tiny, enigmatic worlds which have been hidden away, booby-trapped, surrounded with layers of protection - and to crack them open for the ancient relics and barely remembered technologies inside. But while they ply their risky trade with integrity, not everyone is so scrupulous.

Adrana and Fura Ness are the newest members of Rackamore's crew, signed on to save their family from bankruptcy. Only Rackamore has enemies, and there might be more waiting for them in space than adventure and fortune - the fabled and feared Bosa Sennen in particular.

Revenger is a science fiction adventure story set in the rubble of our solar system in the dark, distant future - a tale of space pirates, buried treasure and phantom weapons, of unspeakable hazards and single-minded heroism...and of vengeance....

    Well read and a good collection of different voices from the reader.

    "Excellent book!"

    This represents a change of tack for this author. The book is set in a universe populated by millions of asteroids which have been developed over eons by other lost alien populations. Humans now have reverted to an almost Victorian era. Tech is available which they can barely maintain but certainly can't manufacture. Spaceships use solar sails to travel and are are crewed by the equivalent of a tea clipper from the 1850's. Throw into the pot a vicious female pirate and an indomitable 17 year old girl hell bent on revenge and you have a gripping, compelling story. It's categorically set up for one or more follow ups. It'd also make a great film, but I suspect the author knows that!

    "Had the promise of some thing epic"

    But failed to deliver I loved some of Reynolds books but this one pens out a vast history with untold words, alien's, planets, artifacts and mysteries only to focus on a few humans doing human stuff and a girl setting up a plan to kill another girl... What? I made it to the end so it's totally rubbish but it's 50/50 if I return this or not.. Another one of those sci fi books that's not really anything about sci fi the story could easily be altered to be pirates at sea or London gangs..

    "YA? You'll like this"

    Shame really, I love Alastair Reynolds and this is good if you're a teenage girl (preferably), I'm an old bloke and it just misfires, I'm not the target audience; it would have been good to be warned.
