A critical mission, a cosmic event, and a secret….
USAF Captain Hedy Quinton joined Project Enterprise so she could travel to a distant galaxy. Excited about her first command, she never expected the headaches that would go with it. She’s dealing with a lonely AI in her ship’s systems, a really cute deck officer who used to be a robot, a disgruntled ally who wants to be in command, and a passel of possibly dubious scientists. The only thing going for her is that none of them are named Dr. Smith.
BoomerJ—known as Boom—is still getting used to his new human body. His new form feels and needs things that his robot body never did, especially when he is around his new commanding officer, Hedy Quinton. His new emotions also make him realize something else—that his new form is fragile compared to his old one.
For Hedy, the pressures of command come into sharp conflict with the longings of her heart when Boom goes down to check out the weird happenings on an unknown planet. Things don’t go well down on the planet or up on the ship, making Hedy wonder if she should rethink her life’s choices.
Can their love survive a cosmic event, betrayal, and the secret of Boom’s past, or will they be destined to be lost in space?
If you love your chemistry interstellar, your action fast-paced, and your space opera sprawling, then grab COSMIC BOOM, the ninth entry in the award-winning Project Enterprise series, and take an exciting adventure into the unknown.
What a great adventure
This book was my first venture into this series and I'm so glad that I took the leap. There was so many things to enjoy about this story. The good main characters and having Hedy and Boom each sharing their points of view.
The humor was fun especially the humor going on in Hedy's head. Especially the Star Trek phrases but that's not the only times. She is also a very skilled Captain. And attracted to Boom.
Boom's struggles with being human and his attraction to Hedy was so well done. He will have a whole lot of struggles and surprises when it comes to filling in the blanks in his memory.
Roy, the computer is that and so much more. There is humor but there is also great world buildings and more than enough danger to go around.
I liked how the story ended and hope there will be more in this series. So good on so many different levels. What an adventure it turned out to be.
I received a free ARC of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
