Saree is trapped. On the verge of destruction, Hal sacrificed himself so Saree could escape on Lightwave. Then the ransom demand for her best friend Nari arrives and Saree hesitates. The best way for Hal to find Saree—when he escapes—is staying on schedule, onboard Lightwave. But saving Nari from Lightwave’s old enemy means taking crazy risks and tossing all their careful plans into the vacuum.
When a Gov Human military rescue team arrives, they seem like the perfect answer. But Lightwave’s crew and the rescue team immediately clash, fighting for control. Saree seizes command, forcing them to work together, but her lack of experience and incompetence alienates everyone. As the ancient adage says, “Bad leaders with good intentions fold into black holes.” Can Saree and Lightwave’s crew survive to rescue Nari and Hal, or will freedom tick away forever? Find out in Lightwave: Circini Search today!
