Spare parts thats all Baden was looking for. Even then, whatever wrecks the pirates leave to rust in some corner of space are hardly worth the time he spends salvaging them. But a book? A Bible, no less? Now, thats different.
The pages will bring a nice payout, with the content itself maybe more than nice. Baden had thought the secret police erased all trace of religion from the five colonies. But what if the find keeps him?
A talking book should be the least of Badens worries with the interstellar war storming. Should be. However, when the secret police are tipped off, reclaiming the Word that was abolished years ago, becomes a matter of afterlife and death.

Rzasa excels at science fiction world-building. His action is intense and tightly worded. Merely comparing this to Star Trek or Star Wars would not do justice to the well constructed battle scenes and plot twists. While the book is fast-paced and high intensity, it does not have any bad language or unnecessary violence that most science fiction is known for.
The spiritual thread in the book could be a problem for some readers, but Rzasa handles it very well. The whole concept is based in a universe where religion is banned and Baden finds a copy of the Bible. But the way that the Gospel is woven into the plot is pretty effortless and does not draw away from the story's intensity.
Very good for adult and young adult readers.
