He never asked for a destiny.
Zach White is happy living the reckless life of an interstellar bounty hunter. He has his dingy but dependable ship, the Space Rogue. He has his brother, the galaxy’s last time-bending samurai. And he has his friend Grin, a cranky old remnant of a scattered race.
But when Zach meets an intriguingly talented woman named Topaz and a droll old robot, he finds himself drawn into destiny’s web — and in over his head in a mystery hundreds of thousands of years old. Solving it could mean fame and fortune. Or it could mean so much more.
Now he just has to dodge the criminals, cops, cyborgs and fascist aliens after him long enough to find a forgotten planet where all life began… a planet called Earth.
A really fun ride
Rogue Destiny kept me entertained from start to finish with action, adventure, humor and a premise that's part space archeology, part interstellar car chase. The protagonist, Zach White, is a rogue in all of the best ways. He's brash, funny, ambitious and more than a little reckless, though these are qualities balanced by how much he cares for the family of misfits aboard his beat-up spaceship. As Zach and his gang brawl their way through rugged frontiers, sleazy spaceports and colorful alien worlds, I really got invested in their search for the mythical planet where all life began, especially as Zach came to realize that it was about a whole lot more than "fortune and glory."
I also enjoyed the way the author piled on many of my favorite things in sci-fi, including shapeshifters, sarcastic robots, supernatural fighting disciplines, ancient weapons, evil AIs and a whole lot more. The twists and turns really kept me guessing down the final stretch, and the author did a nice job of bringing it all together for a showdown that reads like a big-budget action blockbuster movie.
All in all, this is a real page-turner, and the most fun I've had reading sci-fi in a while.
Good book. Worth a read
A crazy cross between Star Wars, guardians of the Galaxy, and Prometheous. I loved this story and would really look forward to reading more interstellar tales from the mind of Dan Schiro. He created an amazing and vast universe.
Not a fan of that one "thing" that happened at the end but it was different and definitely not cliché
