Book #36–The Antaran Codex

Not sure why I grabbed this, but I really, really enjoyed it. I hope that the author writes more. In the Antaran Codex, we have a freighter captain/smuggler that’s pulled back into the human intelligence service. Why?

Apparently in the galaxy there are lots of races, thousands. They’ve built a code of conduct, under which races are allowed to trade and work together. Centuries ago, the humans offended the races that lead and were exiled for hundreds of years. They are close to being given permission to leave their few systems, but there is a threat that a group of humans might cause problems. Since the race is responsible for the actions of all, the Intelligence service sends the Captain to find out what the issue is and stop things.

He ends up moving through systems, learning that there is an item being bid on that is from another race. He fakes his way into the auction and has quite an adventure. I don’t want to talk about it, but it’s an easy read and fun.
