Galaxii Series: Book 2
The I.S.S. Mordrake is in serious trouble – after a skirmish with a Corsair marauder, she is stranded in deep space far from regular shipping routes – and death appears certain.
…but in space, not all things are certain, not even death.
Adrift with no hope of rescue, the I.S.S. Mordrake has six month’s worth of food left, but just less than two weeks of air – and things are looking pretty grim. And, as if there’s not enough on their plate already, something dark and mysterious drifts into their path – an ancient derelict ship littered with the dusty remains of its long-dead crew! The derelict presents an all-too convenient and timely solution to their problem, offering the desperate castaways the spare parts they badly need to repair their ship… but nothing’s ever really that easy, is it? There’s no such thing as a free lunch out there, in the cold empty wastes of deep space.
Resentment, bitterness and malaise having taken hold of the survivors, the sudden possible reprieve brings new challenges – in order for the crew of the Mordrake to survive, they have to work together – even though the faceless, cold-blooded killer who brutally murdered the Mordrake’s Captain still walks freely among them! And, in spite of a further run of mysterious accidents, they must find a way to retrieve the parts they need to repair their own vessel – no matter what lay in wait for them on the derelict ship – something that seemed to want to keep them all to itself!
“Demonspawn” is the second Galaxii novel by Christina Engela.
