John W. Campbell Best Book (nominee)
A woman like no other who longs for acceptance. A precision killer inspired by the dream of his captain. The last member of a murdered race, fighting to avenge his people against the might of the Guild... and the dark powers behind it. The Sublime Brotherhood of Steersmen holds the Middle Stratum in its iron grip. Jaren Peregrine, last of the Gen, raids across fringe space with Nakvin - her captain's best pilot and only friend, apprentice steersman Deim, and mercenary Teg Cross. Hunted by the ruthless Master Malachi, Jaren and his crew join a conspiracy to break the Guild's monopoly with an experimental ship. But when its maiden voyage goes awry, the Exodus flies farther off course than its crew could have imagined.
