I stumbled on this book accidentally while at sea, and was completely enthralled by it. Reference to Science fiction pop culture, specifically Firefly, hooked me. Anyone that gets Firefly knows good sci-fi. The book was fast paced and exciting with hero characters that jump right into your heart. I can’t wait to read more.
Gotta read them all now!
Wow, just wow! Loved it! Definitely a wild and awesome adventure.
Very good! Buying the next one now!
I like to find new authors by poking through the free sci-fi search. When this popped up it sounded interesting. I wish I knew a better way to find this series sooner! To me it’s a bit of Guardians of the Galaxy mixed with a little Star Wars with sprinklings of the best parts of other major sci-fi. Not saying that to take anything away from this author, it’s completely original and good!
