    Firefly meets Mass Effect in this thrilling self-published debut! When Rosemary Harper joins the crew of the Wayfarer, she isn't expecting much. The Wayfarer, a patched-up ship that's seen better days, offers her everything she could possibly want: a small, quiet spot to call home for a while, adventure in far-off corners of the galaxy, and distance from her troubled past. But Rosemary gets more than she bargained for with the Wayfarer.

    Can't say enough good things about this

    Many reviewers have commented that this book seems to be plotless. I disagree. Though yes, it certainly focuses more on the characters and their relat..Show More »

    Rosemary Harper doesn't expect much when she joins the crew of the aging Wayfarer. While the patched-up ship has seen better days, it offers her a bed, a chance to explore the far-off corners of the galaxy, and, most importantly, some distance from her past. An introspective young woman, she's never met anyone remotely like the ship's diverse crew, including Sissix, the exotic reptilian pilot; chatty engineers Kizzy and Jenks, who keep the ship running; and Ashby, their noble captain.

    This book has no plot.

    I'm not sure how to answer that. I have hundreds of audiobooks. I will say it wouldn't be in my favorites and I have no desire to listen to it again. ..Show More »

    Galactic Commons, interesting place

    Enjoyed this story even more than the first one. I enjoyed the alternating P.O.V. along with the depth of description and world building. The intera..Show More »

    Good story, bland delievery

    This follow up to Chambers excellent debut, is a sweet change of pace novel. Instead of interstellar action, Chamber slows it down with an intimate ta..Show More »

    Hundreds of years ago, the last humans left Earth. After centuries wandering empty space, humanity was welcomed - mostly - by the species that govern the Milky Way, and their generational journey came to an end. Today, the Exodus Fleet is a living relic, and those Exodans who have not yet left for alien cities - among them a young apprentice, a lifelong spacer, a planet-raised traveller, an alien academic, a caretaker for the dead and the Archivist who ensures no one's story is forgotten.
