Newly revised and expanded edition. Interstellar flight has been outlawed -- the great warpships that traveled between systems were found to be damaging the very fabric of the universe. Isolated by the ban, the Draconian system has become decadent, strange -- and foul. Dominated by corporate guilds called "bods," Draconian society has built its economy on slavery and assassination. A former assassin, Magen, has rebelled. When her husband is taken by slavers, she sets out to do whatever it takes to get him back -- even if it means destroying the entire Draconian civilization!

About the Author:

To escape the boredom and harassment of 4th grade, Stuart Hopen wrote and illustrated a science fiction and fantasy short story collection that began with a work titled "Me, Temporary Teenager." He's been escaping into his writing and art ever since. A graduate of Princeton University, he has written comic books published by D.C. Comics, Marvel, Fantagraphics, Eclipse, and Amazing Comics. His critical writing has been published by Rain Taxi Review of Books and the Comics Journal. He married a woman who bears an uncanny resemblance to the cover painting on the first edition of his novel, Warp Angel, and they have three children. Though he has traveled extensively across galaxies and dimensions, he has spent most of his life in a small town mantled with its unfulfilled dreams of becoming the east coast motion picture capital of America-- Hollywood, Florida.

From Booklist:

The setting of Hopen's riveting, action-driven first novel is in a distant future and a distant star system in which faster-than-light travel has been outlawed due to its damaging effect on the fabric of space time. In a worlds-spanning society of battle-hardened guilds, Magen is a roving mercenary desperately searching for her husband after his abduction by a sadistic slavers' guild. With the help of trained assassin Chev, a psychic named Veil, and wealthy ex-warp pilot Amelia, Magen crosses worlds, frees slaves, and tests her warrior skills to the limit in a quest that ultimately becomes spiritual, for the husband she seeks is the charismatic leader of a faith espousing nonviolence. Hopen skillfully combines elements of space opera, cleverly drawn battle scenes, and metaphysical speculations on the power of faith--all without pausing a single step in a story line of unrelenting action. Great entertainment for fans of military sf and an excellent first effort from a writer to watch. Carl Hays
