Adda and Iridian have survived the murderous AI that tried to kill them in Barbary Station and an evil megacorporation in Mutiny at Vesta but now they’ll need all of their ingenuity to make it to the end of this epic trilogy.
Adda Karpe and Iridian Nassir are on the run—both from the authorities who want to imprison them and the artificial intelligence that want to control their minds. Trapped on a desolate black-market space station on the edge of Jupiter, they’re nearly out of allies—and out of luck.
Now, they have one last shot to find a safe haven where they can live together in peace—across the interstellar bridge to another galaxy. Getting onto that mission will take everything they’ve got and more. But on the other side of that bridge lies the life they’ve always dreamed of...if they can survive long enough to reach it.
Praise for Barbary Station and Mutiny at Vesta:
"This book is good fun. I really enjoyed this, and I bet you will, too."
—Ann Leckie, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of Ancillary Justice
"An exhilarating mashup of Golden-Age widescreen and zeitgeist cool. Totally unexpected. More please!"
—Award-winning author Stephen Baxter
"Grabs you in chapter one and doesn't let go. This book is for everyone who ever wanted to be a space pirate."
–Mur Lafferty, Award-winning author of Six Wakes
"If Barbary Station was a variant on the gothic novel in space (complete with a haunted house in the form of a space station), Mutiny at Vesta is a nested, layered series of capers in which Adda and Iridian work with limited resources and the pressure of time and other people’s competing priorities to pull off the damn-near impossible."
"Stearns's second space opera is heavy on rousing action scenes, political intrigue, and high AI weirdness..."
