Synopsis (Goodreads):
Captain Alisa Marchenko finally has a lead on finding her daughter, but her passengers want her to take them on their quest instead. Even though the Star Nomad is her ship, they have power she cannot fight, and she finds herself with no choice but to accept another detour.

But the ancient relic they seek has the ability to destroy worlds and is coveted by many. The path leading to it is riddled with competitors and littered with the dead, and even a cyborg and a Starseer may not be strong enough to fight the obstacles in the way.

Swept up in a fate she never chose, Alisa must find a way to survive against impossible odds, knowing that if her passengers succeed, they will change the course of history—maybe not for the better.
Thoughts on Relic of Sorrows: And the hits keep on coming for Alisa and her rag-tag crew, don't they? Every run-in she has with the different factions out there in the universe ends up biting her in the butt. She has the space mafia after her (well, technically after Beck, but they don't seem to care who they hurt in the process). The Imperials wouldn't mind seeing her disappear given her part in the war. The Alliance--THE REGIME SHE FOUGHT FOR--is engaging in some serious douchbaggery whenever they cross paths. The Starseers are just... kinda jerky. Even when they think they're not being jerks, they are.

Basically, only Alisa's quick thinking and her willingness to follow some incredibly whacked out ideas have saved the Star Nomad and her crew from an untimely end.

We got some answers about Leonidas's mystery quest. We got some insight into Alisa's past--things even she was unaware of. There was danger and a little relationship drama and some punching. Actually, there was quite a bit of punching. Which was needed. Trust me.

Book 5 can't come soon enough.
