Shadow Captain Summary

Shadow Captain by Alastair Reynolds

'A swashbuckling thriller - Pirates of the Caribbean meets Firefly - that nevertheless combines the author's trademark hard SF with effective, coming-of-age characterisation' GUARDIAN

'A blindingly clever imagining of our solar system in the far flung future' SUN

Returning to the universe of Revenger, award-winning author Alastair Reynolds delivers another thrilling tale set among the stars.

Two sisters ran away from home to join the crew of a spaceship. They took on pirates, faced down monsters and survived massacres . . . and now they're in charge. Captaining a fearsome ship of their own, adventures are theirs for the taking - and there's hoards to loot and treasures to find in the darkest reaches of space. But the rules are also more relaxed out on the fringes, as they're about to discover . . .

'A rollicking adventure yarn with action, abduction, fights, properly scary hazards, very grisly torture and even ghosts of a sort' DAILY TELEGRAPH

'By far the most enjoyable book Reynolds has ever written' SFX

Shadow Captain Reviews

Pirates in space, full of peril and high-jinks... This is a novel that's elegantly plotted, full of surprises and, as first time round, rip-roaring fun. * SFX MAGAZINE *
Reynolds is easily one of the modern masters of science fiction... addictive, page-turning stuff. * STARBURST *
This is a story to break hearts and make you turn pages. It's great stuff; pick it up, you'll want to know what happens next. * SF AND F REVIEWS *
Much of the fun of these books comes from the construction of a far, far-future space-opera... the mapping of Age of Sail tropes onto space travel is just the start... Nevertheless, at the centre of this baroque masquerade party resides a sober consideration of what it might mean to go off adventuring, what it might cost. * LOCUS MAGAZINE *
