This volume contains the trilogy of Igniting the Reaches, Through the Breach, and Fireships, previously published separately. It was a great pleasure to be able to read them together in one volume. The books are full of exciting action, with battles for starships and war, pirates and evil doers aplenty. The books center on Stephen Gregg, a gentleman of Venus, and his friend, Captain Piet Ricimer. These two meet aboard a merchant vessel at the beginning of Igniting the Reaches. It is Gregg's first voyage beyond Pluto. Almost immediately the small ship gets into trouble and the crew must fight to stay alive in a harsh galaxy. Gregg finds that he has a talent for killing and becomes a valued member of the crew as well as Ricimer's best friend. They return to Venus very wealthy men. In the next book, Through the Breach, we see the story through the eyes of young Jeremy Moore, an upstart with a handy talent for electronics. Jeremy talks himself aboard Captain Ricimer's next voyage to escape from his entanglements on Venus, and also to find out what kind of man he is. This journey is to take the ships through a thin part of the Mirror, a boundary between the universe as we know it and a kind of parallel universe that exists, although hidden, beside us. Again there is a lot of fighting and near disaster before the brave men return to Venus with holds full of loot, making everyone rich and further opening the trade routes to far away planets. The third part of the trilogy is concerned with the building pressure from Earth, which is ruled by a tyrant. Earth would like to conquer Venus as it has conquered nearly every other planet with human inhabitants. Venus is fiercely independent and, thanks to Captain Ricimer's earlier voyages, has the means to defend itself at last. Ricimer gathers an armada and goes out to meet the enemy. This time his voyage is military in nature, unlike previous voyages in which sailors doubled as warriors when need arose. All three books are highly entertaining and fast-paced.
