For fans of Josh Whedon's cult classic television show Firefly comes a fascinating and fast-paced sci-fi thriller from author Mindee Arnett, which New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White calls "a heart-pounding, tense joyride of a novel."
Jeth Seagrave and his crew have made their name stealing metatech: the devices that allow people to travel great distances faster than the speed of light. In a world where the agencies that patrol the outer edges of space are as corrupt as the crime bosses who control them, it's as much of a living as anyone can ask for. For years Jeth's managed to fly under the radar of the government that executed his parents for treason—but when he finds himself in possession of information that both the government and the crime bosses are willing to kill for, he's going to find there's no escaping his past anymore.
With pulse-pounding action, a captivating mystery, and even a bit of romance, Avalon is the perfect read for hard-core sci-fi fans and non-sci-fi fans alike.
I loved this book. Excellent storyline - doesn’t get much better than space pirates. A great read for everyone. My only complaint is that a lot of secondary characters were introduced quite quickly - I had trouble remembering who was who in the crew throughout the book. Still very much enjoyed it, the main characters were enough to keep me reading.
If you're a fan of Firefly and Joss Whedon, this is the book for you. With non-stop action and great characters this is easily one of my new favorite books.
