內容簡介


「Reynolds把故事說得動人,怪異的角色為故事增色,以復仇作為動機,帶有史蒂文生《金銀島》和《衝鋒飛車隊》的況味。」-《自然》雜誌

銀河見證了偉大王朝的起落。行星曾經遭到破壞又被修補。在外星文明的廢墟裡,從瓦礫中建立我們自己的文明,人類依舊頑強地活著。

如果你知道在哪裡找到寶藏,那將是一大筆財富...。

Rackamore艦長和組員們的責任,就是找出隱藏在被層層詭雷保護的謎樣小世界,將這些小世界敲開,就可以找到古代的遺跡,還有幾乎被遺忘的科技。但是當他們以正直從事這危險的工作時,不是每個人都那麼有良心。

Arana與Fura Ness為了家人免於破產,與Rackamore艦長簽下了合約,成為他最新的組員。Rackamore樹敵眾多,等待他們的不只是冒險與財富,傳說中可怕的Bosa Sennen是Rackmore的最大敵人。

這本科幻小說的場景,設定在太陽系的瓦礫堆中,一個黑暗且遙遠的未來,是一部有著太空海盜、執著英雄與復仇的冒險故事。

A superb science fiction adventure set in the rubble of a ruined universe, this is a deep space heist story of kidnap, betrayal, alien artifacts and revenge.

The galaxy has seen great empires rise and fall. Planets have shattered and been remade. Amongst the ruins of alien civilizations, building our own from the rubble, humanity still thrives.

And there are vast fortunes to be made, if you know where to find them...

Captain Rackamore and his crew do. It's their business to find the tiny, enigmatic worlds which have been hidden away, booby-trapped, surrounded by layers of protection - and to crack them open for the ancient relics and barely-remembered technologies inside. But while they ply their risky trade with integrity, not everyone is so scrupulous.

Adrana and Fura Ness are the newest members of Rackamore's crew, signed on to save their family from bankruptcy. Only Rackamore has enemies, and there might be more waiting for them in space than adventure and fortune: the fabled and feared Bosa Sennen in particular.

Revenger is a science fiction adventure story set in the rubble of our solar system in the dark, distant future - a tale of space pirates, buried treasure, and phantom weapons, of unspeakable hazards and single-minded heroism... and of vengeance...
