The author has named the series "Targon Tales", and a "tale" is exactly what this book feels like to me.
Chris Reher explores a galaxy with many forms of sentient life- some more suited to navigation through subspace than others. Another is a shadowy pilot who sticks to known routes short-cutting between charted gates. Reminiscent of: Honor Among Enemies (Honor Harrington Book 6).
We join Sethran Kada on his ‘Dutchman’ as he groggily realizes his latest effort went wrong. His work also leaves very few safe havens where he can refill his fuel rods. The week gets worse, as he learns to share accommodations with Khoe, a passenger. So far, the book scores 3 stars for colorful variety of settings, destinations, and social patterns. They use extensive neural interfaces like: Old Man's War
Soon enough, Seth learns that he no longer has a patron and must quickly find another who will pay for his services. A few allies join him before fleeing authorities. The plot moves quickly to locate a fool scientist working to tip the balance in a low-intensity conflict being fought across this part of space. His research has found new energy sources in subspace. (Another star for a plot with crisis faced by the team.)
There are unexplained gaps in moving from uneasy alliance to genuine affection between Seth and Khoe, and I still do not know what a scanner or a gravity spinner is. But the inferences are enough to qualify as soft science.
Seth appears next in convalescence, where we learn what happened to the rest of the team.
