Artifact Space by Miles Cameron
Reviewed by Phil Nicholls
This is a hefty book, published as a 568-page trade paperback. Cameron has written a mighty story to match this hardback-sized tome.
Orphan Marca Nbaro achieves her dream of enlisting as a midshipper on the greatship Athens through the use of forged papers. Once aboard the vast Athens, she experiences all the joys and perils of being a junior officer in the Directorate of Human Corporations fleet. While learning her duties it becomes clear that someone is destroying the DHC greatships. Nbaro must fight to escape the legacy of her past and the current dangers to the Athens.
