Boss loves to dive historical ships, derelict spacecraft found adrift in the blackness between the stars. Sometimes she salvages for money, but mostly she’s an active historian. She wants to know about the past—to experience it firsthand. Once she’s dived the ship, she’ll either leave it for others to find or file a claim so that she can bring tourists to dive it as well. It’s a good life for a tough loner, with more interest in artifacts than people. Then one day, Boss finds the claim of a lifetime: an enormous spacecraft, incredibly old, and apparently Earth-made. It’s impossible for something so old, built in the days before Faster Than Light travel, to have journeyed this far from Earth. It shouldn’t be here. It can’t be here. And yet, it is. Boss’s curiosity is up, and she’s determined to investigate. She hires a group of divers to explore the wreck with her, the best team she can assemble. But some secrets are best kept hidden, and the past won’t give up its treasures without exacting a price in blood.… (més)

Interesting premise, but I was tired of it by the end. The story does not end in the first book, and I did not go on to read the remaining books.

I've enjoyed a number of space archaeology books, and this one looked like the same sort of thing: main character stumbles on some ancient wreck, and begins to fill in the history. I had several problems with it, though:

I didn't really like the main character. I didn't dislike her, but there's nothing particularly interesting about her, and nothing winsome. She had a traumatic experience losing her mother as a child, and that could be interesting, but I think it was a little too weird for me. The main character has no good relationships with anyone, really; she's mostly a loner, working toward goals which (once I started to understand them) I am not sure I think are particularly noble or good. She's not funny, and not interesting because of her skills either--she just doesn't stand out.

I also didn't like the "science" behind this. That may be more of a problem with me than with the ideas, but they just seemed weird and arbitrary. It's hard to say too much without cheating the slow revelation of the story, but when the revelation happened I was thinking: really?

Finally, I do not think that suppression of research is ever a long-term achievable goal, even if it seems like a good solution for some very dangerous technology. Suppressing research into atomic power, for example, might have kept the world from the brink of nuclear war; but sooner or later, *somebody* is going to figure it out, and if that somebody isn't you, you're dead. You cannot stave it off forever.

I wound up skimming the latter part of the book, and didn't feel like reading two more novels, so maybe the author deals with some of these issues later. ( )

Rather ho-hum space-opera. Dangerous ancient tech, evil empire, flawed protagonist, implausible plot. ( )

Still listening. Same narrator as Jack McDevitt's Alex Benedict novels with a similar setting. So far they could almost be in the same universe. ( )

Couldn't quite like the protagonist (who is nameless). The motivating factors seem to be revenge or avenging coupled with a reluctance to destroy or kill. We discover that her main motivation in trying to destroy the target is "I imagined him living with the consequences for years, mourning his losses, looking at his failure." (p.257). There's a sense of hopelessness ("I expected success to feel better. I expected it to make a difference" (p.263) but in the end it birthed a sense of mission.
No. Didn't do much for me. I did like the spaces the authored imagined. It's a credible environment. It's just the story which is disappointing. ( )

A young woman explores wrecked spaceships, discovers ancient stealth technology, and decides the galaxy would be better off without it. It's not really all that bad a plot, but the story is, well, painfully juvenile. I don't mean that in the YA sense. Some YA is quite sophisticated and enjoyable, with intricate plots, great prose, and wonderful characters. This isn't, but then it's not really YA. It's ostensibly adult science fiction. It has spaceships, after all, but there is no subtle social commentary, no thought provoking insights about the future of humanity, no ideas about other worlds or alien civilizations, nor any interesting philosophical musings like you often find in great science fiction. What little real science there is, is superficial, and the narrative seems to convey either a poor understanding of science and scientists or a mistrust of them. (The protagonist, in any case, seems to hold this opinion.) The characters are one-dimensional. The prose is simplistic, although this may be intentional. The story is told in first person, present tense by the protagonist. The narrative makes it clear that she is emotionally scarred, narrowly educated, and far from brilliant. She has some redeeming qualities, but not enough to make her likable or very interesting. This may justify why the book often reads like a high school girl's journal, but it doesn't make for a great science fiction story. ( )
