Publisher Description

Love character driven scifi? Join Jake and Arr on their adventures.
The Helavite War is book #1 of the Star Traveler Adventures

“The Helavite War takes me back to when I first read the early science fiction works of Heinlein, Asimov, etc. There is a sense of boldness, innocence and the essential goodness of mankind, wrapped up in a universe that is bigger than we know now and yet navigable by humans.” – JKMohr

“Characters stay true and are well developed, great scene description, emotionally engaging and the plot keeps you caught up.” Angie C.

Jake is a human mercenary looking for a quiet place to rest, when his Protect Dar-dolf attacks the last living Henu, Arr. Feeling responsible, Jake stays on to care for Arr, as the alien with deep blue cat eyes and unusual abilities recovers.

Jake takes on the role of teacher, mentor, father, and lost brother for his new alien friend. He and Arr share adventures dealing with the Hydra, a race of lizard-like creatures who kidnap members of other species to sell on the black market as slaves; battle the Narnon on Gligula where Tuldavian Swamp Lizards lay their traps just below the surface of the slime; and engage in numerous other missions while learning to appreciate each others rare abilities.

Ultimately, they must face their toughest foe, the Helavites, a species which has been preying on the weaker beings in the universe for generations. In the underground catacombs of these beetle-like creatures a mystery is solved and the grounds for the resurrection of an old world are laid.

Playing to relax ,

This is an amusing episodic adventure in space.

If I new this was intended to be for older juveniles, I would give this 3 1/2 stars with the reservation that, although there are no explicit sex scenes, sex happens. Kids might not pick up on it; adults and teens will. Parental choice.
There are aliens, new planets, space ships, and battles. One alien, the sole member of his race still surviving on his planet, is one of main characters and has some interesting racial characteristics. The book is a series of lightly connected events with some recurring characters.
I enjoyed this but it is quite simple and just jumps into situations. The ending is highly unlikely and wraps up a little too neatly. There is too much that is unexplained for me to find it involving.
I don't know how to explain the problems that I have with this book without spoiling it for others.
I like hard SF and space opera. I can't recommend this for adults but I would think about it for a younger reader.
