There were believable and vivid though. POVs: One point of view is central command as the one likable low level character tries to cut through the bureaucracy of obstinate superiors and the chain of errors to rescue the crew. As I said, a good basic story but overwritten to the point where the tension was lost under too many words. I cannot recommend it and will not read it again. The only reasons I read it so fast were it was too hot to go outside and build, and I speed read it.

They've lost communication with Graywand, and their drive system is dead. Just when it seems that things can't get worse, John Wheeler, who feels a connection with a mysterious alien presence, wanders off and stumbles upon the sprawling ruins of an ancient city. The others have no choice but to go after him. The place is more than a little spooky. But there's no real danger, right? The city is long dead, abandoned eons ago. For Caitlin Palamara's small audit team, it's the end of their comfortable routine, and the beginning of the interstellar nightmare that becomes known in ISEA archives as The Tartarus Incident.

Nov 23, John rated it liked it Shelves: scifi , scifi-fantasy. I can't believe how tolerant I was of overwritten pedantic books 30 years ago as long as the basic story was good.
I think this one could have been told in half as many pages. But it has a good basic underlying story and, once I kicked into speed reading mode, was reasonably interesting and at times exciting. Premise: Shuttles with life support but no other motive functions are instantly sent from a central command to previously mapped planets.
