Book #91 - Spinward Frings #7 - Framework

The latest book in the Spinward Fringe series, and not the last I hope. I wasn’t aware this was out until a friend posted that they had just finished Framework. I had a pile of other books in progress, but I grabbed this and started it when I had the chance.
It was slightly confusing, so I had to go back and re-read book 6 to get caught up. In this one war is inevitable, and the crew of the Triton is starting to rebuild their lives in the Rega Gain system. Jake and Ayan still haven’t rekindled their romance, though they love each other. However a glimpse of the future for Ayan has her pushing him to leave and start pirating to finance their colony. She negotiated an island on the moon, and needs funds to start rebuilding.
Meanwhile the Triton is a mess, but some amazing pieces of it come to life, including Ashley’s link, and Larry’s identity. The First Light crew loses one of their members, but I won’t tell you which one. It’s more of a drama, a true space opera for much of the book, but it kept me interested.
We still have another whole other side to this story with Hampon, Wheeler, and Eve on the other side of the galaxy. Quite a twist there with the Victory Machine and views of the future. Eve dreams of Alice and the past, but there are also views of what might come. We learn a lot about how this machine has been impacting the story.
I enjoyed it, but it’s a lot to think about. I
