The Language of Corpses
Mechalum Space 1
The year is 2728, and instantaneous travel is possible by gating from one body to another on any of 300 human-inhabited worlds. On Cecrops, Jazari wants to escape her boss, a crime lord, and figure out why she’s always heard voices in her head. On Corvus, Eala is a scientist studying the mammal-like taktak who wants to understand their telepathic abilities. In the outer reaches of the Sol system, ZD777 wakes from cryo, alone on a frozen asteroid that is about to explode. Chance throws them together, and they have to figure out not only how to save themselves but also a mystery with implications for the future of humankind. Readers of Ann Leckie and James S.A. Corey will enjoy this character-based space opera.
