The vendetta in space had started centuries before "Mouse" Storm was born with his grandfather's raid on the planet Prefactlas, the blood bath that freed the human slaves from their Sangaree masters. But one Sangaree survived - the young Norborn heir, the man who swore vengeance on the Storm family and their soldiers, in a carefully mapped plot that would take generations to fulfill. Now Mouse's father Gneaus must fight for an El Dorado of wealth on the burning half of the planet Blackworld. As the great private armies of all space clash on the narrow Shadowline that divides inferno from life-sheltering shade, Gneaus' half- brother Michael plays his traitorous games, and a man called Death pulls the deadly strings that threaten to entrap them all - as the Starfishers Trilogy begins.

Masato Storm, aka Mouse, is the youngest son of one of the two great mercenary generals in the fascinating future of this novel. Said generals, Gneaus Storm and Richard Hawksblood, have been rivals for nearly two centuries, and matters are now about to come to a head. The rivalry began with Mouse’s grandfather and a raid on the planet Prefectlas, which freed human slaves from their Sangaree masters. One Sangaree survived, and he has been planning revenge ever since. Gneaus and Richard will use their mercenary armies to fight their last epic battle on Blackworld, where there is great wealth to be had on the side of the planet melted by the sun’s inferno and protected only by the narrow Shadowline. Gneaus’ half-brother Michael is busy playing traitor, and the whole family may fall if Gneaus and his lieutenants don’t figure out what’s really going on with Michael as well as the Sangaree in time. The world and larger-than-life characters of this promising trilogy-launcher make for a satisfying reading adventure. --Regina Schroeder
