Gingezel 1: The Limit
Twelve years in creation, the epic Gingezel series is set at the time when human habitation has expanded beyond the galactic core. Uneasy contact has been reestablished with the Farr Sector populated by immigrants from Terra in the first days of hyperspatial travel.
Dr. Mitra Kael, power systems engineer for Dellmaice Power Systems, has spent three years on the Farrese mining planet Drezvir installing the prototype of her hybrid reactor. It should provide all of the power the colonists need to survive on that inhospitable planet. She’s proud of her hybrid. It has pushed the limits of technology. She doesn’t care what reservations Ari Dellmaice, her boss, has about it.
After three years of being an Outsider, she just wants to get off Drezvir and never see that planet again. Mitra is headed for Gingezel, the ultimate pleasure planet. It is the first planet ever bought from the Galactic Exploration Agency and the entire galaxy is wondering who the mysterious consortium who owns it is.
Once on Gingezel Mitra meets Dr. Dreen Pendi and his best friend Joran Lantonnel. Although she doesn’t realize it, Dreen is CEO of the galaxy wide Nemizcan Computing. He has a different problem from Mitra. It’s been way too long since he’s pushed any technical limits. As for Joran, he is strictly on holiday there to hide his secrets. They are nothing though compared to the secret Dreen is hiding.
An idyllic vacation changes to a nightmare when pushing the limits turns into pushing your luck and secrets start threatening to slip out.
