Publisher Description

An ancient starship just woke up. A young slave just became its captain…

Jess has been a prisoner his entire life. He’s watched his fellow slaves visit boobytrapped ships for weeks. None of them ever came back alive. When Jess gets orders to clear the next ship, he knows he’s about to die a prisoner…

After the mothballed ship comes alive at his touch, Jess discovers the Wanderer has its own consciousness and that he’s the one in control. As he and the ship hightail it out of the imperial stronghold, freedom comes at a cost. Now he’s the most wanted fugitive in the galaxy, and ruthless pirates, desperate miners, and a complicated beauty are all chasing him down…

One wrong move could put Jess and the Wanderer back in shackles, but if they can survive their freedom, they may just have the power to save the Universe…

Wanderer’s Escape is the first installment in a series of rollicking space opera novels. If you like epic space battles, sentient spacecraft, and trying to do the right thing against incredible odds, then you’ll love Wanderer's Escape.

A fun read.

Mr. Goodson, thank you for sharing your work with me (for free!) through iBooks. I enjoyed it. Keep writing!

I did something with this book that I rarely do...I re-read it immediately! That only happens with books that draw me into them. Books that give me an excitement of senses that I don't want to let go of quickly. Great stories, a great movie, great desire to read more of this series. Thank you for your hard work. It does feel more attuned to young people so I'd like more focus on older characters. Obviously, a complete story regarding Sal & Elizabeth. Stage was set for them & may be in rest of series already but if not please consider. Wonderful loved it!
