Publisher Description


"If you're looking for a lighthearted space saga, then this is definitely a book you're going to want to pick up." - Literary Titan


"This is an accessible and highly readable science fiction tale that relies on speculative technology and imagined scenarios but is never bogged down in heavy concepts or complex astrophysics."- US Review of books

"This was pure Flash Gordon spaceopera stuff, and the author kept the story moving at a fast pace with characters the reader will love." - Pulp Den 

Wil just wanted a crew for his ship.

He got a galactic conspiracy.

Wil Calder is a human, the only one to leave our solar system.

But that was years ago.

Now, he’s a lonely smuggler, looking for a crew, because space is lonely and boring. Just a few folks to boss around once in a while, is that so much?

What he definitely isn’t looking for, a galactic conspiracy. 

But that’s what he and his new crew find. They’ve just met each other and now they have to save the commonwealth from war, no big deal.

Does this untested crew and their entirely out of his depth human captain have what it takes?

Fans of Farscape and Firefly will love the crew of the Ghost.

Join the crew of the Ghost on the first of many fantastic adventures.

Great Space Opera

I throughly enjoyed this starter of the series and will be pursuing the other books in the series. Good set up of the universe this takes place in with enough explanation on how a human can be accepted amongst aliens, communicate and succeed in galaxy in turmoil. Wil is a reminiscent of other galactic anti-hero’s that appear in various space sagas I have read. The motley crew of aliens comes together as a like able group that you want to succeed. Good pace, fast and fun read!

Space opera

Excellent fun and very easy to read. Well worth the time. I have been a SyFy fan for over 55 years and this book proves that there is more well written stories to come.
