Phaedra: Alastor 824 Kindle Edition
Wake the living Galleons at your peril...
The Elder Race once ruled the entire Alastor cluster. Fierce predators, they tore suns from the sky, leaving the worlds of their enemies to freeze in the dark. Now only the Galleons are left: living ships that sail the world river which girds Phaedra: Alastor 824. After the death of his father, Gunnar arrives on that ancient world, trying to find a new home. Having two girlfriends sounds like a good start, but Lavoine is the deeply tricky daughter of the last Voodoo queen, and Semele a fierce huntress who has sworn never to kiss a boy until she Walks with the Galleons. And now Lavoine is trying to wake up the Galleons and bring back the Elders...

There were some great ideas in this novel, worth the purchase price. Like another reviewer I felt the novel started well but became rushed. Many parts in the second half made no sense. I believe this author would make a great Vance novel, in partnership with a second author or editor to prune nonessential material and to flesh out great ideas undeveloped and reconnect contradictions.. With better editing I would read another book in this series by this author. The Galleons were a wonderful idea, the canyon planet was a great planet I would like to visit again if the name were different... Deep canyons holding the only atmosphere... What pressures would that put on inhabitants to squeeze particular sociological traits?
