About this ebook

Ryler Mallivan’s comfortable life as an upstanding young freighter captain has just imploded. Avaraks are storming the training ship he is on and the bullets being fired are not blanks. Interstellar war has broken out and unless he moves fast they will all be as stone dead as the instructor lying at his feet. <br /><br /> But this is one conflict they can never escape. The cause of the trouble is far closer than they know and will bring Mallivan and his ragbag fledgling crew under ferocious attack from all sides.

They are going to need all their wits about them if they are to stay alive. And they have to, because there is nobody else to save all their worlds from a doomsday weapon which is set to obliterate the entire universe. 

Just how much can one lone spaceship do?

Okay this book started out pretty good. Had an interesting premise a lot of detail and then suddenly story logic just took a nose dive. We are told in order to save his life the hero must sign over control of his most valuable piece of property his spaceship in order to be released by the pirates. We are also expected to believe that out in the vastness of the Galaxy these pirates who he had met for the first time knew exactly what he owned and it's value. Once the hero is saved from the pirates we are then expected to believe that he is obligated for no reason given at all to turn his property over to the pirates even though free at the time. This is got to be about the dumbest piece of logic I have ever read in a science fiction story.

I read a lot of fiction......the descriptive narrative of future possible devices should not overshadow the story.......the writer has done an excellent job of being able to tell the story and describe how a situation or action was achieved without engineering degrees...I applaud you , and thank you for an acceptable triumph of good over evil.

Funny, exciting, all the things you want in a Space Opera. Aliens by the score, Earth Population thinking they are gods, only to be disappointed again.
