The civil war is over and the rebels defeated the empire! Unfortunately, Alisa, a fighter pilot for the rebels, is shot down after the cease fire and finds herself stranded on a backwater planet with only one wish; to get home to her daughter. So she goes looking for her mother’s old freighter that is parked in a junkyard on the same backwater planet. With her she has an engineer who was also on the rebel side. Together they make it to the freighter only to find a dreaded Imperial cyborg already in place! They reach an uneasy truce and, together, they set out on their journeys in the Star Nomad. This is a great SF space opera. I loved reading the prequel that gives us more insight into Leonidas. For SF fans of all ages. Lindsay Buroker is a talented author who writes in other genres under pen names. They are all great books but my personal favourites are her SF novels! Looking forward to more of her work.
Well I have just finished reading 4 of the best adventure books that I have been lucky enough to have have stumbled upon. The plot is very well thought out and I found the non-stop action very addictive. The heros and in fact all the characters are very real and convincing. I love the hodgepodge crew of the Star Nomad and the personal interactions are very convincing and interesting and make these books true page turners
I've read the Blade's Edge series by Buroker and loved it. This series is just as captivating. Love the characters and the fast moving plot. The writing flows easily, yuou won't want to pit it down, or for it to end.
I think I've bought all the Lindsay Buroker books, oh, and the Ruby Lionsdrake ones, as well. I love the writing style, the humour, the characters and the wonderful plots. The Fallen Empire series, like the others, more grabs you and keeps you reading, page after page, book after book, as you immerse yourself in the lives and universe of these characters. As an English teacher with a Masters in Education, I am really fussy about my reading habits, and Lindsay Buroker's Fallen Empire series is a wonderful escape from everyday life.
