Things are Earthport Station are really hectic.

First are the normal snafus when three differing race--human; Phi-Nurian; and Rofan are busy sharing the same spaceport with their differing customs and conflicts. The Phi-Nurians are erractic; the arrogant Rofans like to duel.

Then, the nearby Rofan spaceport is closed due to an unusual emergency, so ships must continue on to Earth Port Station. The workload of incoming ships is suddenly doubled.

Another description of life on a space station orbiting earth, but this one has a twist.

Mildly confusing in places with some language.

After Spirit Fox I had to read a stand-alone by Ms. Wingert. A lovey Royo-esque cover and a great story--wonder if she'll do any more books...?

Jennifer Wingert lives in Iowa, works full-time, and writes in every spare moment she can find. Spirit Fox is her first novel, but it will certainly not be her last.
