The Shadow of the Gods (Paperback)
Most beings live their entire lives in the shadow of the gods.
Once you leave that shadow, there's no going back.
Ami N'uni is a starship captain with too many pirates to chase and too many lives to save. She doesn't need complications. But she's a sucker for helping the haunted and Kieran Krendasta definitely qualifies. He's the least powerful agent the Galactic Law Enforcement Agency has to offer - so no one believes him when he says that he's a danger to everyone around him.
Hoping she won't regret it, Ami invites Kieran to join her crew. His presence on her ship soon proves to be useful and distracting by equal measure. Her old enemies are beginning to surface - which wouldn't be so bad if Kieran hadn't brought new ones along with him.
Ami's past might be stalking her, but something much worse is stalking Kieran. Something she can't protect him from.
No mortal is a match for a god.
