Product Description

Top 5 Finalist, KBR "Best Indie Books of 2012"

"Dremiks" is a story of adventure and intrigue set on humanity's first inter-stellar transport. The stated mission for the crew and colonists of the Hudson is to travel across the universe and save the doomed planet of Dremiks. During their seven month journey, though, they learn that human beings have not fundamentally changed--jealousy and greed are still powerfully motivating characteristics.

The characters of "Dremiks" are surrounded by shifting loyalties, saboteurs, deceitful aliens, and all of the dangers of space travel. Friendships evolve, relationships unravel, and there's still a planet to be saved. This is the space-opera that will suck you in and keep you up late at night.

There is much work behind this novel. You perceive it by its length, the complexity of the plot, the amount of characters and how their stories are intertwined, the attention to detail and even its division into a large number of scenes, which provide us with the picture of a truly impressive story, one of those for which you cannot wait to resume reading.
In a Star Trek-style atmosphere we find the crew of the Hudson, the first spacecraft to leave the solar system to reach that of an alien race, the Dremikians. Their planet, Dremiks, is threatened by the partial destruction of one of its moon, and humans offer to help them save it in exchange for new technology and the settlement of a colony on the planet. From this assumption comes the story of Captain Brett Hill, Commander Maggie O'Connell and all the other characters on board, including the alien Dwax. Soon each of them becomes our friend and we learn about the dynamics that bind them, in a mission that is anything but simple. Behind it in fact, a whole series of intrigues are hidden involving both humans and Dremikians, but not only them.
I'd rather not get into details, it would take away the surprise to those who'll read it. Suffice it to say that this beautiful novel caught me and entertained me, and I almost felt sorry that it's over. It's not easy to manage so many characters and still be able to make them real and distinguishable, but Cassandra Davis has succeeded in it.
If you like stories with spaceships, aliens and interstellar travels, you must read it.

Although science fiction the best thing about this book is the interplay between the characters particularly the captain and the commander, at time stormy. If you want an all action adventure it is not for you as although there are action sequences it is a slowly developing story which involves political intrigue. The alien races encountered are believable and it builds logically without relying on sudden inventions once a "scientific" principle is established the story stays with it so the story does seem plausible once you suspend disbelief.
I would like to read more by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar Debut from Cassandra Davis 3 April 2012
By Jasmine White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved Dremiks. I want to get that out of the way now because it's all I've been saying for almost a week. This is apparently Cassandra Davis's debut novel, and it's a good one.

There are spaceships. There are bombs. There's aliens. And conspiracies, power plays, deception and saboteurs...There's even chocolate.

But first, there's a treaty.

Humans and Dremikians have worked out an agreement for humans to begin settling on the planet of Dremiks, which is now inhospitable to the Dremikians. All they have to do in exchange? Save the planet from destruction.

And if you think that's easier said than done, first they have to get there.

There are a lot of characters aboard the Hudson space shuttle, and each of them have their own motivations. The only way to find out who knows what, and what side everyone falls on is to keep reading.

That's the easy part. I could not stop reading this book. The mystery of what exactly was going on was compelling, but even more so, I loved the characters.

Maggie O'Connell, despite her reputation in the story, is a very easy character to like. Her interactions with Captain Hill were especially great -- the two of them have great chemistry -- but at every moment, Commander O'Connell is doing her best, and you can't help but root for her.

There are loads of other characters, and I really hope that Cassandra Davis plans on writing more books in this world, because I'd love to know what happens to the ones who survived the end. There's definitely room for more of this story to be told, and I want to read it.

(Disclaimer/Disclosure: I received a copy of the book from the author to review, however complimentary copies do not guarantee that I will review the book, and do not sway my opinion on the story.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining with great cast of characters 21 March 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Full Disclosure: I know the author. I really enjoyed the book. It was very entertaining. She did a great job of weaving the future world and its trappings. Created great aliens. The cast of characters were wonderful and relatable. I am hoping for a sequel already! It was a very fast read and compelling; a fair amount of action, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling, Engaging Characters and Gripping Sci Fi, LOVED IT!!! 27 February 2013
By Soulfire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My new favourite Science Fiction author... From the first chapter I became hooked, caught up with wonderfully rich characters and a fascinating storyline. I loved the main characters Commander Maggie O'Connell and Captain Brett Hill and the angst between them both. Maggie is fiesty, stubborn and courageous. Captain Hill is intelligent, reserved and professional (not to mention utterly gorgeous). The secondary characters do not take a back seat, some of them are equally as loveable, others are downright horrid and have you wishing for their demise. There are also aliens, space travel, attempted murder, planetary intrigue and ship board drama. At the end of it all (spoilers) there is finally romance (took long enough!). So I finished Dremiks in two days and now am left wondering how long I will be kept waiting for the next in the series? More please, more Maggie and more of that delicious blue eyed Captain Brett Hill...

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, fun read. 1 June 2012
By Steelgeek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed Dremiks. Reading this, it was apparent to me Cassandra had some sort of military background as the characters and dynamics for the officers and crew felt very real to me. (I found out later she was an army brat) That gripped me and made their adventures that much more interesting. The(earth)tech also felt real, being believable without needing hard science to explain.
The mystery and intrigues kept me cursing the interruptions that made me put the book down, and snatch it right back up as soon as I could to find out what was going on.
The only complaints I had with it was some of the antagonists seemed two-dimensional, and the foreshadowing was occasionally heavy handed.

All in all, a great read, especially impressive as a debut! I'd love to visit this universe and characters again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Space Opera 14 March 2015
By John R. Abbott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Cassandra Davis has done a wonderful job with this book! The political fighting amongst the humans was one thing, but added to that the aliens made it even better.

It plays out as a political/mystery in space but is so much more than that. Space Opera readers should definitely take a look at this.

I will definitely recommend this book to those that like the genre. Heck even if they don't like the genre I'll recommend it.
