Diving Pairs Vol. 2
Kristine Kathryn Rusch
WMG Publishing presents the explosive adventures of Boneyards and Squishy’s Teams in one thrilling pairing.
Hugo Award-winning author Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s bestselling Diving series spans time and space so vast that the stories continue to unfold. Now, with the Diving Pairs volumes, WMG Publishing offers complementary books that, together, tell more of the story than each book alone.
Stealth tech: a lost science everyone wants to reclaim. The woman who helped Boss dive the Dignity Vessel, known then as Squishy, claims a long and storied history with stealth tech. Her research into the lost science caused deaths before, and she failed to prevent more during a fateful dive. Now, she vows to find a way to destroy the technology once and for all.
Coop and Boss want to keep stealth tech out of the Empire’s hands, too, but for different reasons. “Stealth tech” powers Coop’s ship in the form of its anacapa drive. A drive that malfunctioned, leaving Coop and his crew stranded. But to find a way home, he must know what happened in the past.
When Squishy’s actions threaten Coop’s mission, he must make a choice—help Boss attack the Empire, or risk losing his hope for a future.
Diving readers know that Squishy enlisted others to help her destroy stealth tech in the novel Boneyards. But exactly what happened to those teams remained a mystery—until now.
Ten people signed up to help Squishy in her fateful mission. Only five returned.
Paired up in teams of two, they set out across the Enterran Empire to infiltrate and sabotage the Empire’s bases used to back up their stealth tech research.
But what exactly happened on those bases? Who survived? Squishy’s Teams provides the answers to those burning questions and reveals twists to the ongoing saga no one sees coming.
“Rusch follows Diving into the Wreck and City of Ruins with another fast-paced novel of the far future.”
—Publisher’s Weekly on Boneyards
“Filled with well-defined characters who confront a variety of ethical and moral dilemmas, Rusch’s third Diving Universe novel is classic space opera, with richly detailed worldbuilding and lots of drama.”
