Bigger spaceships. Bigger explosions. Bigger planets. Bigger problems.
It’s been three years since Esa joined the ranks of the Justified after her rescue from the fanatical murderers the Pax.
Together, Esa and her mentor Kamali travel from planet to planet, searching for children with supernatural abilities.
It’s hard work, but Esa has never felt more assured of her place in the universe.
On a visit to a planet so remote that its inhabitants never learned that the Sect Wars ended over a hundred years ago, they learn that the Justified are not the only people searching for gifted children. There is a creature with unexpected powers who will stop at nothing to get its hands on the children that Esa and Kamali are trying to rescue.
With their latest recruit in tow — a young Wulf child named Sho — Esa and Kamali will travel halfway across the galaxy in pursuit of answers. But the answers only lead to more questions, and the danger will only increase as their terrifying nemesis turns his eyes on them.

Firstly go read The Stars Now Unclaimed, then read this book.
I have become a bit obsessed with space books – honestly I never used to enjoy sci fi but books like this have totally changed my mind.
It’s fun, adventurous, well written, funny, clever, the characters are excellent, the plot rips along at a pace.
Basically I love it.
If you’re a fan of Becky Chambers’ Wayfarer series, The Illuminae Files, Ancestral Night, or any of the other books I rave about on Instagram then this is for you.
Bring on book three!
