Description

Halvor Cullen was built to be a hero. But he's never felt like one.

As a gene-spliced, tech-enhanced 'VAT' super soldier, Hal was made to fight hard and burn out young, then spend the short remainder of his life forever chasing an elusive adrenaline rush. Thankfully his best friend and former commander is determined to prevent that from happening by keeping Hal busy salvaging crashed spaceships along the Spiral's Edge.

But when a new member joins their crew, and a mysterious sphere they bring aboard the ship unleashes an alien presence, Hal's desires and malfunctions threaten to bring them all to the point of destruction...

Review quote

"Smith's debut is rich in detail, full of tension, and packed with characters you won't easily forget." "The Rush's Edge gives you all the Firefly feels with a dash of Mass Effect for the hell of it. Fantastically entertaining." "You will root for these heroes and cringe at the evil that brought them together." "We're treated to an array of space dogfights, cyborg assassins, and straight-up street brawls to keep the pages turning well past bedtime." "well-crafted space opera." "A sci-fi saga with equal doses of action, thrills and heart." "Vivid characters, fine action sequences, and thoughtful exploration of prejudices are blended with authority."
