This is part of the Stellar Guild Series which pairs newbie authors with the old guard. This volume deals with religious coincidents across galactic distances.
There appears to be a universal savior who is crucified in numerous cultures, in innumerable shapes across unimaginable distances that leads to the theory of a universal God.
That is the premise of the book. Tina Gower sets the stage and Resnick brings down the curtain. Ms. Gower provides two short stories that sets up the finale. Her stories did not resonate with me as well as Resnick's. I don't know if that is due to experience or style. The premise was intriguing. I particularly liked Gar's interplay with his ship.
I received a copy of this book with the understanding I would do an honest review, I have done so.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
