Eternity's End (Star Rigger #6)
Jeffrey A. Carver, author of The Infinity Link and The Rapture Effect, returns with a new science fiction epic set against a sweeping backdrop of interstellar war, space piracy, and star-spanning conspiracy.
After seven years of captivity at the hands of interstellar pirates, Star Rigger Renwald Legroeder escapes to the Centrist Worlds, thinking himself free to return to ri...more
The star rigger's Flux: a higher-dimensional realm where reality and fantasy became strangely merged, where landscapes of the mind intersected with the real fabric of space, where space itself flowed and surged with movement—and where a rigger's skills could vault him across light-years, or send him spiraling to his death.
I love seeking out the lost gems in Science Fiction. This is only the second Carver book I’ve read, but it was the first I became aware of. I actually saw the Stephen Youll cov ...more
I do also wish there would have been a little more description of the different alien cultures, as there were quite a few mentioned. At lest the Fabri and Narsail could have been more described.

This one is hard to pigeon hole.
In places it's quite morally ambiguous, and adult in the lack of clear conclusions.
In others it's over simple, like bad YA.
While the characters don't always ring true, it is an entertaining story, and an interesting backdrop that's at least partially filled out.
A solid three and a half stars you might just enjoy more than I did.
Entertaining story that was written pretty well. Both theme and plot are pretty strong if somewhat simple. The author glossed over some of the more complicated political intricacies, choosing to spend more energy on his description of Rigging in space. Over all, it was an enjoyable novel and worth reading.
Politics and secret and open differences of opinions among the inhabitants, human and non-human propel the actions and events of the novel. Riggers who work at getting ships safely from one place to another are under stress both professional, personal, psychological and political.
