To combat manipulative megacorporations with telepathic technology, two heroes must rebel, overthrowing the enemy's oppressive influence in the third book in this exciting sci-fi adventure In a galaxy where the super-powers are the megacorporations, and ambitious executives play fast and loose with ethics in order to secure resources, where can good people turn for help? TTo combat manipulative megacorporations with telepathic technology, two heroes must rebel, overthrowing the enemy's oppressive influence in the third book in this exciting sci-fi adventure In a galaxy where the super-powers are the megacorporations, and ambitious executives play fast and loose with ethics in order to secure resources, where can good people turn for help? The megacorps control the jump gates and trade routes. They use psi-techs, implant-enhanced operatives with psionic abilities, who are bound by unbreakable contracts. Psi-tech Cara Carlinni once had her mind turned inside out by Alphacorp, but she escaped, found her place with the Free Company, and now it's payback time. Ben Benjamin leads the Free Company, based on the rogue space station, Crossways. The megacorps have struck at Crossways once--and failed--so what are they planning now? Crossways can't stand alone, and neither can the independent colonies, though maybe together they all have a chance. But something alien is stirring in the depths of foldspace. Something bigger than the squabbles between megacorporations and independents. Foldspace visions are supposed to be a figment of the imagination. At least, that's what they teach in flight school. Ben Benjamin knows it's not true. Meeting a void dragon was bad enough, but now there's the Nimbus to contend with. Are the two connected? Why do some ships transit the Folds safely and others disappear without a trace? Until now, humans have had a free hand in the Galaxy, settling colony after colony, but that might change because the Nimbus is coming.

This does come to a interesting conclusion; the problems are solved, the bad guy is taken care of, the characters are in a good place and all seems well in the world. A nice finish to the series.I [...]
I'm really loving this series. This book provides a great ending to the saga of Ben and Cara. It's got better writing and flow than the first two books, and I love the way the story develops. Definitely recommend this as one to read with a beer in front of the fire. (Or on the beach, or in an airport, or where ever you do your binge reading)
Good wrapup of a series that hits all the space opera tropes. Nice work
Maybe it's because I read this book immediately after Provenance, but this third instalment of the Psi-Tech series felt very pedestrian. I didn't remember it feeling this way in the first two - I had been drawn in by the high-stakes plot and engrossing characters (despite their alliterative names) - and so I feel let down.This book was 50% too long, for starters. Far too much exposition, weird tonal shifts, sudden jumps in the timeline, and it was not able to maintain a level of suspense through [...]
