Priestess of the Eggstone by Jaleta Clegg

After having read Nexus Point by Jaleta Clegg, I waited patiently for the sequel. There was a cliffhanger at the end and I had to know what would happen between Tayvis and Dace. I was not disappointed when I finally got Priestess of the Eggstone in my hands.

Here is the synopsis:

It isn’t Dace’s fault she leaves chaos everywhere she goes.

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.

Dace took any job she could and didn't realize that taking the job at Belliff would be so dangerous. She despised her ship, Twinkle but it was her ship. She hires a copilot, Jerimon, before delivering the shipment. Things begin to go quickly downhill as she learns that Jerimon is in trouble with the Sessimon She is angry with the feelings she has toward Jerimon and does her best to keep him away.  Meanwhile, Tayvis is trying to keep with the chaos that Dace has left in her wake so that he can pass along an assignment from Patrol.

This was a fun read from beginning to end. I love the interaction between the characters and how they worked together. I felt like I was on the ship with Dace and could feel the tension when things went wrong. Jaleta did a great job with her imagery of the ships that Dace traveled in.
