Reviews by David Turner

Very good sci-fi action. If you liked Wing Commander or Starship Troopers get this. Space Opera with Jarre fighting against the Tharnian Empire, who want to destroy all before them. It has been done this well but getting in Jarre's head is an interesting ride. He's an unlikely hero. Wall to wall action and some strong surprises I didn't see coming. Good emotion captured in Jarre and Ganna, his lover, yet it's clear early on they can never work - there are too many bounty hunters, space pirates, traitors in Jarre's own ranks, and worse. There are some issues, the ending is hard to get, and agree with the above review that an editor would help. Still worth a read and as the authors website says there has been a screenplay written so who knows, this could be the next avatar or district 9.
