Priestess of the Eggstone by Jaleta Clegg
She didn’t know Belliff, the company who hired her to courier sensitive materials, is a front for the Targon Crime Syndicate. She finds out when she steps into the middle of a Patrol raid on Belliff’s offices. The Patrol and Targon both want her. But that’s nothing. Her copilot has an entire sentient species chasing him for stealing their god. The two of them set off on a desperate chase to get the Eggstone god back to avert war with the Sessimoniss while evading the Patrol and the Targon Syndicate.
But the Eggstone isn’t just any rock. The Patrol isn’t chasing her for the reasons she thinks. And Targon’s days are numbered.
"The office on Herifon was the same as a thousand other Patrol offices."
This book is a quick, entertaining read. Ms. Clegg told me this was one of her favorite to write and I can see why. Dace is smart and strong but trouble follows her everywhere. And this moves the book along.
Good world building and interesting storyline.
Keep up the good work!
Story needs tightening
