Southern Syfy has arrived in this “Dukes of Hazzard meets Buck Rogers” adventure tale.
In a future spawned from the headlines of today, enter a world of contrasts, where Man has conquered the heavens, while at the same time becoming quickly obsolete on his own world. A world where science and technology brings exotic fantasy creatures to life … for the right price. Where hot rod rockets and redneck “spacers” rule the skies.
Tiger Thomas was a rocket pilot during the Great Space Rush, when humankind colonized the Solar System in the twenty-second century. Now, all that’s winding down, and so has the demand for old spacers like him. He makes a living now doing whatever jobs he can find, legal and otherwise.
Returning to his hometown of Huntsville, Tiger looks forward to a relaxing weekend back on Earth. Who knows, he might even re-kindle that old flame with Lulah Carter, "the one that got away" years ago. A dinner and dancing ... who knows what might happen.
But when he rescues a genetically engineered, anthropomorphic fox girl from a clan of vicious, hillbilly thugs, his homecoming quickly turns sour.
Somebody wants this sexy, furry darling back. BAD! And they’ll do whatever it takes, including killing anyone who stands in their way. Tiger and newfound companion soon find themselves on the run from a deadly, high-tech unit of bounty hunters. And if that ain’t bad enough, revelations about this beautiful vixen starts to disturb him. Is she really a victim? Is there more to her than just a pretty face and a bushy tail? Is there something else? A part hidden and dangerous, waiting for the right time to manifest itself? And with all that to ponder on, there's also one other small problem ... he finds himself irresistibly attracted to her.
Oh, and then there’s that whole Lulah thing again. As if things weren’t complicated enough.
Well, so much for a relaxing weekend.
Scifi with a twist
This is the second book I have read by this author, and is a different style to his first undertaking.
This is a great scifi romp, set in the not so far distant future, space travel has become the norm and deep space pilots are off world for long periods of time. We meet our southern hero Tiger, a semi retired deep space pilot, who is not adverse to doing a little smuggling to make a dollar. Coming home from his last little smuggling sojourn in deep space for a bit of R&R, and to reconnect with his former love Lulah.
We then find our hero getting sidetracked, doing the gentlemanly thing, saving a young woman's life, but she is not your typical young woman, realising that helping her is getting him deeper in trouble, he makes the decision that he cannot abandon her to fend for herself. So then the fun begins, extremely good gun fight scenes, as bounty hunters seek to take the woman away. Tiger discovers dangerous secrets, unexpected helpers and crazy hillbillies determined to harm the girl and anyone else in the way.
Well written, interesting characters, very likeable main characters, both the good guys and some bad guys, and a few you really really dislike. All in all a good read, bit of fun, with some surprising twists and turns, that make for a great adventure. I cannot wait for the next book in the series.
If you like a bit of scifi adventure with a healthy dose of Eroticism, I thoroughly recommend it.
