The Sisters of Cygnus provide the crew of Lightwave a safe, quiet place to rest and relax. But when Lightwave makes their usual resupply run, they find marauding prospectors attacking the colonists. The Inquisitors, as they’re known, search for transuranic metals deep underground; stealing, raping and pillaging the outlying ranches. The Sisters need help to oust the evil from their planet.
Unwilling to resume a mercenary life, Captain Ruhger offers to evacuate the Sisters, transporting them to a new world. But Mother Ferra, the Sister’s leader, desperately wants some startup credits to ease their way and the Inquisitors aren’t willing to let slave labor just fly away. Saree, Hal and Lightwave’s crew have no idea how far either will go…
Can Saree survive the dangerous caverns of Cygnus Gliese? Can Lightwave hold off the Inquisitors? Find out in Lightwave: The Sisters of Cygnus, Folding Space Series 2.0!
