Confronted by the threat of genocide at the hands of the alien Nefrim, humankind's only hope lies in Captain Mikhail Volkov's desperate mission to the Sargasso Sea in search of the mystery behind the long-lost spaceship Fenrir, but his discovery of a secret that could save the human race is threatened by damage to his own ship that could prevent him from returning home.

Blackwell North Amer
The appearance of the warp drive from a long lost spaceship, the Fenrir, triggers an epic quest for the rest of the ship, a mission led by Captain Mikhail Volkov. According to the drive's computers, Fenrir had been lost to a hypothetical "nowhere" of subspace, but since the drive's housing is covered with coral and sea life, obviously Fenrir has gone somewhere. Faced with genocide at the hands of the aliens known as the nefrim, humans need a miracle to survive. On the chance that Fenrit's mysterious location holds such a miracle, Mikhail jumps into the unknown and crashes into the endless blue ofthe Sargasso.
He and his surviving crew discover a vast graveyard of rusting spaceships, human and alien. On the Sargasso's great oceans, humans live alongside the minotaur, the hak, the civ and the obnao. His ship damaged, his younger foster brother lost, and his sanity rattled, Mikhail discovers a secret that might save the human race - but only if he can repair his ship and return home.

A good book, full of interesting ideas and characters. The action is plausible but don't think too deeply about it. This is a satisfying space opera that (perversely) still leaves you wanting more. Writing such a novel is much harder than it looks, so do not be tempted to look down upon it because it is (only) a page-turner. The author has done her homework and obviously spent a great deal of time polishing it. So it's a good read and, really, why else do you borrow novels from the library?

Good book, but through a lot of the story I felt like we'd joined in about halfway through. I kept thinking it was missing some backstory information - almost felt like the 2nd book in a series instead of a stand alone. I was able to get into it, but was slow going at first.
