Reese Eddings has enough to do just keeping her rattletrap merchant vessel, the TMS Earthrise, profitable enough to pay food for herself and her micro-crew. So when a mysterious benefactor from her past shows up demanding she rescue a man from slavers, her first reaction is to say “NO!” And then to remember that she sort of promised to repay the loan. But she doesn’t remember signing up to tangle with pirates and slavers over a space elf prince…

Book 1 of the Her Instruments trilogy is a rollicking adventure set in the Pelted Paradox universe, and kicks off an epic space opera series where the fate of worlds hangs in the balance. Fans who enjoyed Firefly or Andromeda will likely enjoy this series.

The crew starts at Starbase Fos. Reese gets an encrypted message and the crew heads to Inu-case to rescue an Eldritch.

It is 11 days (normally 16 but the TMS Earthrise's engines were retrofitted 6 years ago) from Starbase Fos to Inu-case (through Sector Epta and most of Sector Andeka). [1]

From there they went at high speed to Starbase Kappa. The crew of the TMS Earthrise were on Starbase Kappa about 9 days. Reese was in the Mediplex for 2 days, and then about a week to repair the well drive. [2]

They were on Harat-Sharii for nearly 2 months (a month and a half plus 1 and a half weeks) in Earthrise. [3]

It takes about 3 weeks for the TMS Earthrise to get from Starbase Kappa to Sector Tau. [3]

UNCLEAR how much time is spent getting from Sector Tau to the pirate base, having a fight, and then back to Starbase Kappa. Presumably about the same 3-4 weeks as the trip out. [3]
