Booklist Review

In the third novel of the Silent Empire, Father Kendi Weaver and his comrades on the Poltergeist have mounted a shoestring search-and-rescue mission for missing family members, including Kendi's own parents and siblings. Apart from slender resources, the searchers have to deal only with such minor problems as a disintegrating interstellar economy, a variety of rogues, and slaving rings, who may be responsible for how the sought went missing and who want to make the Poltergeist crew go missing in the same manner. The characters, including the two gay ones, were introduced in Dreamer (2001) and Nightmare BKL O 1 02--fine for old readers, but not quite so for new ones. The action remains fast, furious, and absorbing, though, and a cliffhanger ending implies at least one more book. --Frieda Murray Copyright 2003 Booklist
