This fourth installment of the Starbridge saga features a mystery surrounding an archaeological dig on the StarBridge academy's home asteroid. We see more of the academy's inner workings and the interactions of the different species among its faculty and students. The primary student character is Serge LaRoche, a musician who no longer plays because an accident severed his hands, leaving him with artificial ones. He still hasn't come to terms with this loss and focuses on archaeology and his work at the academy. He and a fellow student, Hing Oun, dance around rekindling a relationship his remoteness ruined. Into the mix comes an abused child with astounding telepathic abilities, exactly the sort the Cooperative League of Systems is desperate to cultivate.

A. C. Crispin and Deborah A. Marshall mix all these elements deftly, seasoning with corporate intrigue, political maneuvering, and computer tampering. I was rooting for Serge and Hing and even for Heather, the telepathic prodigy, who doesn't start out as the most sympathetic character. The authors make excellent use of their outer space setting, too. This is a great continuation of the series, and I'm off to read book 5, Silent Songs.

The future of the StarBridge Academy is at stake due to an Archaeological find deep beneath the surface of the school's asteriod base. Two people, Serge LaRoche, former student and now music instructor and Heather Farley, his newest student team up to find the truth and save the Academy. As usual, A.C. Crispin give us a great story that's exciting and fun to read. And you might learn something too. This is a must read for all StarBridge fans.

Sometimes life throws us a curve ball. We can spend years planning for one thing, and in the blink of an eye, the universe decides to overturn the apple cart.

In the midst of pouting and feeling sorry for himself, Serge is thrust into intrigue, murder, and mystery. While he's finding himself the unlikely hero, a secondary story is going on. Heather, a young telepath with a talent for computers, in need of socializing. She isn't making things any easier for our reluctant hero.

Fun story, since it also includes one of my passions -archaeology.

The Starbridge series features good plots, great character development, and a truly interesting theme. Indeed, the books earn a consistent five star rating in my opinion. This is SciFi focused on people, not hardware - a rather rare sub-genre that is nice to settle down with.

During a previous release, there were problems with the publisher - problems which have now been eliminated, with the author taking over and self publishing. As such, I wholeheartedly recommend this series!

I love the Starbridge books and this book is no exception. Exciting, interesting and fun, you will not be disappointed. A.C. Crispin is a masterful writer and you will be safe in her hands. Let her take you on an adventure.

A story centering around starbridge itself and its teachers/students.
You are introduced to some new characters, and it DOES set the stage for the 6th book.
i liked 2,3, & 5 better.

One big old rock. Now we all know what an Asteroid is. Just think of one big enough to live on. Not only that but when a rock is big enough to have Gravity you know how big it is. Then you let folks Live on it. The next thing you know is they find out it had someone living on it millions of years ago.
