Fans of Farscape and Killjoys will love the crew of the Ghost.
Wil Calder was an astronaut testing Earth’s first Faster Than Light engine in an experimental space pod when he ended up stranded on the opposite side of the solar system. Even if NASA could come to get him, they didn’t know where to look.
But that was years ago.
Now, Wil is a lonely intergalactic outlaw and smuggler, looking for a crew, because space is lonely and boring. He’s got a ship, now he needs some friends or at least people to work with, maybe boss around a little.
What he isn’t looking for, is a plot that would destabilize the entire Galactic Commonwealth. A scheme he and his new crew aren't remotely qualified to stop, but who looks at qualifications these days? They can’t just turn their backs on the galaxy, can they?
Between epic space battles, a quest for redemption and a daring heist, the crew uncovers a dangerous secret.
If you tried to cross the Buck Rogers TV Show from the early 80's with the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, you'd come close to the rollicking good fun of this classic space opera.
Join the crew of the Ghost on the first of many fantastic adventures.
Initially I questioned the writing, but as I got into the book it became a thoroughly exciting and fun story. It was hard to put down and the characters and story was engaging. Well worth the read.
Enjoyable space opera
Well written, lots of action. Well defined and self-consistent universe, which I have always considered essential for science fiction. Good characterization, and each character is unique, which is not easy. Not particularly believable but a believable space opera might be a contridiction in terms.
Loved the growth of the story; The characters and how they were added; the action and the end. Definitely recommend the book!
