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.

Started out a little slow but then really picked up. The book is written in three parts and the first part felt almost like the end of the book. And the ending is a little heartbreaking. Family! I will read more of this author's books.

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book when I dove into it (forgive the pun). It turned out that it grew on me. The first part of the book definitely feels like a completely different story from the second, and it even had inklings of space horror -- something which I appreciate and find too...

Awesome. I loved the heroine, she's very complex and through the book you learn why she is the way she is. The story is original too.

This is a story about an emotionally isolated woman finding a cause. It's a slightly different novel than I expected, since I thought it would be an extended exploration of a wrecked spaceship, but that is not the focus at all. Still, like most of Rusch's work, it hooked me and drew me strongly on...

I've made some mistakes in my life, but not many I regret. One that I do is waiting so long to read a Kristine Kathryn Rusch novel. I've read many of her short stories and enjoyed them, but this book blew me away. I couldn't put it down. Read it over a weekend, basically. It hooks you from the start...
