Denon Spire

The Spires of Denon
by Kristine Kathryn Rusch (2009)

Set in the same universe as ‘Diving Into The Wreck’. The Spires of Denon doesn’t involve Boss or her crew. Instead, this novella follows Meklos Verr, hired to guard an archeological dig near the mysterious Spires of Denon.

This starts slowly and feels like it could be a bit boring. However things become more interesting as characters motivations and opportunities change. In retrospect, you can see how Rusch has carefully mapped out an intriguing story.
