At first glance, Wen Spencer's Endless Blue may seem the print equivalent of a popcorn movie -- fast-paced and fun to read. But this is one book that can't be judged by its rather garish cover, as the characters struggle with self doubt and moral issues over what it means to be human. Spencer has included some romantic elements as well but in ways that complement the main action. From official release/information:
From book flap: 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 Fenrir's mysterious location holds such a miracle, Mikhail jumps into the unknown and crashes into the endless blue of the Sargasso.
