Series: Embers of War
Low on fuel and hunted by the Fleet of Knives, the sentient warship Trouble Dog follows a series of clues that lead her to the Intrusion - an area of space where reality itself becomes unstable. But with human civilisation crumbling, what difference can one battered old ship have against an invincible armada? Meanwhile, Cordelia Pa and her step-brother eke out their existence salvaging artefacts from an alien city. But when Cordelia starts hearing the city's song in her head, strange things start happening around her. What extraordinary affinity does she have for this abandoned technology, and how can it possibly help the Trouble Dog?

Reviews for Light of Impossible Stars (#3 Embers of War)

a truly terrific, action-packed space opera that ponders what it means to be human - The Frumious Consortium If you like space operas, science fiction, sassy people and drama then you will have one hell of good time reading Light of Impossible Stars 5* - Fangirl Nation a well-planned and thoughtfully crafted trilogy - Hugo Book Club Grand space opera...but also an intimate tale of a group of characters who become, after many heartbreaking losses, their own found family...I wholeheartedly recommend it 5* - Red Headed Femme
