For centuries, men and women have manned lighthouses to ensure the safe passage of ships. It is a lonely job, and a thankless one for the most part. Until something goes wrong. Until a ship is in distress. In the twenty-third century, this job has moved into outer space. A network of beacons allows ships to travel across the Milky Way at many times the speed of light. These beacons are built to be robust. They never break down. They never fail. At least, they aren't supposed to.

An interesting story but I found the ending came too quick with little explanation for events in the Epilogue. All in all a quick read.

An interesting Science Fiction novel with an unique thematic exploration. Well developed characters with a fast paced plot that ends in an unexpected way. Worth reading if you are interested.

Yes. It's like The Martian met Ready Player One with a healthy dash of darkness. So good.
