Interesting intro to an aging orbital and its' new security chief, Duke. They are preparing for a visit from a politician with a checkered past and slippery agenda. There are pirates on this border, and they feature in current events. Intriguing characters and plot- five stars.
The visual imagery is vague- something about greasy corridors and null spaces- four stars. Yet the characters must lean on each other to save Farflung, so readers feel their lives entwine- five stars.
Characterizations are somewhat one-sided; Duke is a black sheep. Princess Lockey is a wolf in siren's clothing. Sandrina a mute genius. The writing twists from new revelations every few pages, so it moves right along. But there is growing attraction between Sandrina and Duke:
'Sandrina threaded her way through the tables with self-conscious rigidity. As she wiped an empty table with a towel, she glanced over her shoulder at him then looked away.
"She's mysterious," he said. "That's all."
"Suspicious people irritate my worry buttons," Lockey said, equating mysterious with suspicious. "You are certain about the urchin? Because of Senator Striden's history in this sector, Farflung Station holds danger. He is very brave to come here, so I insist security preparations be adequate."
Hoornaert, Edward. The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station (Repelling the Invasion Book 1) . Kindle Edition.
So, yes, Hoornaert tells a great tale of romance within the scify of future space.
