E for being a treasure hunter Of course that s exactly what he gets in At Star s EndBut Among Galactic Ruins while it certainly foreshadows At Star s End is really about the relationship between Dr Alexa Clark and Damon Malik Not that there aren t plenty of parallels in their relationship to Dathan s storyDr Alexa Clark is the head curator at a prestigious private museum Damon Malik is the conscientious and rather secretive head of security Her ingenious exhibits are security nightmares but extremely successfulThey both have pasts that they are trying to outrun Malik grew up on a gang planet and was rescued by a Galactic Security Services officer he tried to pickpocket While Alexa grew up the privileged daughter of a wealthy businessman on an inner ring planet it was a gilded cage that she was expected to remain in for the rest of her life She rebelled and made her own way through SCHOOL AND INTO A PROFESSION THAT SHE LOVESALEXA HAS and into a profession that she lovesAlexa has a map encoded on an ancient vase to the location of one of the fabled lost Faberge eggs of old Earth Her map full of cryptic clues leads to the planet Zerzura once a lush paradise now a desert wastelandAlexa has always wanted to go on an expedition and this is her chance Her boss concerned for her safety as well as that of the artifact she seeks sends Malik along for her protection A protection she badly needs as the planet is dangerous and there are all too many people who have searched for the Temple that is reputed to contain the eggThe danger starts upon landing when the planet throws up a deadly sandstorm and the guide who stiffed her sends thugs to her room to steal the map While they fail this is only the first in a series of troublesome dangers that turn out not to be a coincidenceWith their new guide Dathan Phoenix leading them out Malik and Carter follow those cryptic clues to a long concealed location fending off predators both natural and otherwise along the way only to find that they are facing yet one and seemingly final trapIn the end it is Alexa s love of the profession that her father despised that saves the day for all of themEscape Rating A Okay I ll admit that if you ve read At Star s End you can pretty much guess how Among Galactic Ruins is going to go Which doesn t make it any less fun not by any stretch of the imaginationIt s also fun to see Dathan Phoenix as a very young and slightly less secure man Seeing Dathan interact with Damon Malik it makes you wonder how much young Dathan modeled himself on Malik who has become pretty much the kind of man that Dathan would like to beDamon Malik is a much better role model than Dathan s real father the drunken and disreputable Brocken PhoenixThere are also elements of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade complete with Malik as the adult Indy and Dathan Phoenix Dathan Phoenix euals River Phoenix as the young Indy You can even see the resemblances if you suint Among Galactic Ruins also reminded me a bit of Romancing the Stone although Alexa Clark is a much experienced and capable adventurer even with her sheltered upbringing than Joan Wilder in StoneThe story in Among Galactic Ruins is an actionadventure romance Malik and Clark fall in love during the high adrenaline rush of a dangerous treasure hunt Because they already know each Other And Mostly Rub and mostly rub other the wrong way the brief love story doesn t feel rushed nor does it feel like insta love Their high voltage arguments obviously conceal deeper feelings and seem to have from the beginning They start out combustible and the shared danger finally makes them combustIn summary Among Galactic Ruins is a sweet treat for fans of Hackett s Phoenix Adventures and a great place to start for someone who has yet to experience the fun of this terrific science fiction romance adventure seriesReviewer s Note Among Galactic Ruins is currently available.
