Really like the way the relationships are developing. Interesting plot. A real adventure and it's hard to tell who is friend and foe as the plot thickens. Can't wait to read the next (and final) adventure. ( )

Again, very good, but again, not quite as good as the first three installments of the series. ( )

Jack stops off at the planet of Semaline to pick up some papers that Uncle Virgil had left in a safe deposit box, but before he can get to the bank, he's kidnapped by a group of Golvins who take him back to their remote village in a desert canyon to act as a judge-paladin for them. He discovers that his parents were not miners as his uncle always claimed but judge-paladins who were murdered eleven years ago in that very village. Jack stops trying to escape back to Allison and his spaceship and sets out to solve his parents' murder with the help of Draycos.
Meanwhile, Allison is also kidnapped from Semaline and taken to the Choockook estate and forced to open a K'da safe that contains the location of the rendevous between the refugee fleet and the advanced scouting party. If she fails to open it, Arthur Neverlin and Colonet Frost will have her shot. If she does open it, Neverlin and Frost will be able to carry out their massacre of all the K'da and Shontine refugees.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 076535277X, Mass Market Paperback)

Orphaned at the age of three, brought up by his con man Uncle Virgil, Jack Morgan has done things that even in the future in space are unusual. But when he rescued Draycos, a dragon-like symbiont, from certain death, his life became a series of breathtaking adventures. With the help of Draycos, who can leap onto Jack’s back and become what looks like a tattoo, Jack has been doing everything he can to find out who ambushed the scout-fleet of Draycos’s people, the K’da and Shontine, leaving Draycos the sole survivor.. Now, just when Jack thinks he may finally be on the trail of the information he needs, he’s kidnapped by aliens, who ask him to be a judge for them, as, they reveal, his parents had once been.
Jack’s friend Alison Kayna, and her newly acquired K’da symbiont Taneem, are also kidnapped, and she is forced by two of the conspirators to open the booby-trapped safes from the K’da/Shontine scout fleet, to try and learn the rendezvous point of the larger fleet. With the help of Jack’s Uncle Virge and his ship Essenay, Jack and Draycos escape and rescue Alison, but they are unable to gain the information they desperately need to save the refugee fleet… and precious time is running out!
