Shadow Captain

Shadow Captain

The gripping sequel to the Locus award winning science fiction adventure, Revenger, tells a story of obsession and betrayal as two sisters hunt for the greatest treasure in the universe.

Adrana and Fura Ness have finally been reunited, but both have changed beyond recognition. Once desperate for adventure, now Adrana is haunted by her enslavement on the feared pirate Bosa Sennen's ship. And rumors of Bosa Sennen's hidden cache of treasure have ensnared her sister, Fura, into single-minded obsession.

Neither is safe; because the galaxy wants Bosa Sennen dead and they don't care if she's already been killed. They'll happily take whoever is flying her ship.

Shadow Captain is a desperate story of cursed ships, vengeful corporations, and alien artifacts, of daring escapes and wealth beyond imagining ... and of betrayal.

    Well I didn’t like Revenger but hoped I’d like this one better-but all I can say is, “Alaister Reynolds-what’s going on here??” His previous stories are some of my favorites. The actions is ...

    Wow, this story got so much better the deeper we got into the mire. Following the first novel, in which the Ness sisters (view spoiler)[defeat Bosa Sennen at the cost of a few important things (life, ...

    Surprises and challenges for the Ness sisters as they try to shake off the legacy of Bosa Sennen - even as they wrestle with her obsessions. I enjoyed Shadow Captain, but it feels like a middle book: ...

    One again, Alastair Reynolds demonstrates his mastery of complex world building. This is a sequel to Revenger, but while it's ideal to have read that first, I didn't feel a huge loss from not having d...
