A year after the Commonwealth won the war with the Theocracy, the interstellar cruise liner Supreme is on its maiden voyage, carrying a host of aristocrats thrilled to be sharing in a wondrous adventure among the stars. The passengers include the owner and his daughters, Angela and Nancy. Growing up with all the luxuries in the world, neither sister has ever known true struggle, but that all changes when a collision with a pirate ship leaves the cruiser powerless and becalmed in hyperspace. And they’re not alone.
Now, the mysterious force that’s living on this floating graveyard is coming for Supreme’s crew and passengers. As madness starts to tear at their minds, they must fight to survive in a strange alien realm.
And there’s no way out...

Real Aliens, at Last
It was a great fun to finally encounter the real, alien aliens - not the 20th-century polititians clothed in scaly reptilian skin and waving a number of tentacles (talk about the body being the temple of the soul). And the story that doesn't boil down to a glorified World War or the 'heated' Cold War with its Federation vs Empire simplicity, and its exceedingly complicated excuses for the atrocities committed by the 'good guys' was refreshing, too.
The total physical helplessness of the protagonists, even those who were supposed to be trained in unarmed combat, felt a bit frustrating, though; and I don't know: is it just me, or was there a veiled, fearful, but still a hint at the ultimate evil of the society where selling a girl out can save a corporation from collapse? At the profound wrongness of the very idea of marrying for anything other than each other? There definitely was a clear message about the need to find one's way to contribute to the humanity, tinged with the irony towards certain people's sense of entitlement.
It's not the original Solaris, by Stanislaw Lem; but it's definitely worth reading.

Would you try another book from Christopher G. Nuttall and/or Jennifer Jelsema?
Only because most of the previous books have been pretty good, unlike this one
What could Christopher G. Nuttall have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Make it a stand alone book or new series. This seemed like a mix of ideas tossed into a book.
Would you be willing to try another one of Jennifer Jelsema’s performances?
I really can't say because the book was so off series.
Any additional comments?
Shortly after the book starts there is a warning that basically this book does not belong in the series or at the very least is so far out of the time line that it is crazy.
There are brief mentions of the war the series is/was about.
I'm asking for a refund. Maybe the book would have been OK if I had not expected it to be logically next in the series, this is probably should have been book 55, not 5.

I couldn't finish it. Was simply too boring. Sorry for the bad review. Sleep inducing.
