Meanwhile, on another side of the Universe. . .Meet Gem ser'Edreth, a wizard with electronics -- and a freelance thief. Deliberately solitary, unencumbered by family or friends, he immerses himself in his profession, rising to a pinnacle of skill so exalted that the planetary crime boss seeks him out with a commission to steal. Refusing the commission, of course, is his first mistake.
Gem's hidden past proves an unexpected liability and his plants to leave the planet go catastrophically awry. Suddenly embroiled in interplanetary politics, a potential interstellar war, and in possession of an ancient object of power an an unwanted cousin, Gem discovers that the mysterious Witness for the Telios may hold the key to his salvation -- or his undoing.
A fast-paced and entertaining space opera featuring a loner thief, an interplanetary mafia, possessed objects, mystical prophecies, plenty of conflict, and a dash of romance. Perfect for those who like action-packed space adventures full of rich prose and intriguing ideas, although not for those who like every aspect of the plot tied up in a neat bow at the end. Performer Kevin T. Collins's voice is clear and precise, and he does an excellent job capturing the emotional drama of his characters.
