Product description

Product Description

Captain Lana Fiveworlds has a hell of a lot of problems.

She's sliding void in an ageing seven-hundred-year-old space ship, scrabbling around the edges of civilised space trying to find a cargo lucrative enough to pay her bills without proving so risky that it'll kill her. She's got an alien religious freak for a navigator, an untrustworthy android for a first mate, a disgraced lizard for a trade negotiator and a deserter from the fleet acting as her chief engineer.

And that was well before an ex-crewman turns up wanting Lana to rescue a barbarian prince from a long-failed colony world. An alien romance? Well, they never work out.

Unfortunately, for Lana, the problems she doesn't know about are even more dangerous. In fact, they just might be enough to destroy Lana's rickety but much-loved vessel, the Gravity Rose, and jettison her and her crew into the void without a spacesuit.

But there's one thing you can never tell an independent space trader. That's the odds...

A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR ON HIS SCIFI BOOKS



I was driven to write a rip-roaring space opera adventure to fill the gap left when I realised all my favourite science fiction series on TV had sadly ended - Star Trek, Battlestar, Stargate, Firefly, Babylon 5, Farscape (sob). Your kind feedback makes me hope that the crew of misfits onboard the Gravity Rose have succeeded in entertaining you on the pages of my scifi books. Long may Lana and her friends keep on flying into danger . . . and escaping it!

REVIEWS

Praise for Stephen Hunt's novels:

‘Mr. Hunt takes off at racing speed.’

- TOM HOLT

‘All manner of bizarre and fantastical extravagance.’
- DAILY MAIL

‘Compulsive reading for all ages.’
- GUARDIAN

‘Studded with invention.’
-THE INDEPENDENT

‘Hunt has packed the story full of intriguing gimmicks… affecting and original.’
- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

‘A rip-roaring Indiana Jones-style adventure.’
—RT BOOK REVIEWS

‘A curious part-future blend.’
- KIRKUS REVIEWS

‘An inventive, ambitious work, full of wonders and marvels.’
- THE TIMES

‘Hunt knows what his audience like and gives it to them with a sardonic wit and carefully developed tension.’
- TIME OUT

‘Filled with alien romance: a Scifi Masterworks in the making.’
- SFCROWSNEST.ORG.UK

‘A ripping yarn … the story pounds along… constant inventiveness keeps the reader hooked… the finale is a cracking succession of cliffhangers and surprise comebacks. Great fun.’
- SFX MAGAZINE

‘To say this book is action packed is almost an understatement… a wonderful escapist yarn!’
- INTERZONE

‘Put on your seatbelts for a frenetic cat and mouse encounter... an exciting tale.’

Overall it was a decent little novella.The question is, will I be paying 4 or 5 dollars for a few chapters of what could easily have been one book to get the next installment in the series? --we're just buying small sections - No, despite enjoying.
I suppose thats the downside of a novella, and after reading reviews that the second novella in the series is even shorter than the first,I definately wont be going there.
