Product description

Product Description

A century has passed since Humanity was liberated. A young girl named Starlight is orphaned when her mother is killed in a tragic accident while piloting a shuttle. Starlight is sent to a "Contract Orphanage" by her mother's employers, who blame pilot error.
Starlight suspects a more sinister cause.
Who or what is the true reason for her mother's death?
A life long search for the truth begins,
on a dangerous journey far from home.
Will she find justice or will she find death?

This Kindle Edition updated August 2012, to reflect the second edition paperback, set for release later in 2012.

Starlight is set 100 years after M R Mortimer's first book Suspended Earth, in the same universe. It is an independent story. This is his universe that features the Federated Species Council and the Union of Free Humanity. There are many more books to come in this setting, but they are not strictly a series. The second Starlight novel will be Armadas Disciple, coming in 2012 or 2013. Find information at

4.0 out of 5 stars A good scifi adventure! 2 July 2013
By Linell Jeppsen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
M.R. Mortimer's Starlight is the story of a young girl who is left alone in the universe after her mother- a ship's pilot, is killed in an act of sabotage. Her father, who was almost fatally injured in a different wreck, is kept alive in a virtual reality pod- the same virtual reality pods that kept human beings captive centuries earlier. Once in a while, Starlight is allowed to visit and gain wisdom and advice from her dad.
This is a well realized science fiction story with plenty of good tech, but it mainly focuses on the life of a young girl who wants more than anything to travel amongst the stars, like her mother and father once did.
With the help of a few adults and a few very cool aliens she might just realize her dreams~ if the evil corporations don't get her first!

There were a few spelling and grammar errors that seemed to resolve themselves the further the author got into the novel, but it took away from the 5 star rating the story deserves.
Good story! 4 stars!

Starlight is set 100 years after Suspended Earth, it is set in the same universe .
However it is a independent story so even if you have not read the first book you can enjoy it .
This story follows a young girl named Starlight who is orphaned when her mother is killed in a tragic accident .
This is a great read .

The universe Mortimer creates is beautiful.
I really enjoyed following Starlight and the great friendships she makes .
I smiled, cried, and laughed alongside the characters.
I cannot wait to see Starlight's future adventures.
I highly recommend this book.
