Publisher's Summary

A Red Peace, first in Spencer Ellsworth's Starfire trilogy, is an action-packed space opera in a universe where the oppressed half-Jorian crosses have risen up to supplant humanity and dominate the galaxy.
Half-breed human star navigator Jaqi, working the edges of human-settled space on contract to whoever will hire her, stumbles into possession of an artifact that the leader of the Rebellion wants desperately enough to send his personal guard after. An interstellar empire and the fate of the remnant of humanity hang in the balance.
Spencer Ellsworth has written a classic space opera, with space battles between giant bugs, sun-size spiders, planets of cyborgs, and a heroine with enough grit to bring down the galaxy's newest warlord.

A solid sword-and-laser adventure.

This is a well-written and superbly narrated first book in a high-concept space opera/sword-and-laser trilogy.

The recipe for Ellsworth's universe is a little bit Star Wars, a dash of Warhammer 40K, and a healthy portion of Simon R. Green's Deathstalker books. Although the tropes Ellsworth plays with in his inaugural novel are rather familiar to the fans of the genre, he spins an entertaining yarn that never outstays its welcome.

Will definitely listen to the sequel.

Excellent, gripping and original space opera.

Great characters, great story and excellent writing make this an excellent space opera; the performance is the cherry-in-top. If you like science fiction, I strongly recommend this book.

Great Start to a Trilogy With Lots of Potential.

Great mix of character, action and subtle yet complex world building. Ellsworth juggles two parallel narratives well, making sure his two narrators are distinctive and have strong personal storylines.

The supporting cast and the worlds they inhabit are also well developed, with the book gleefully shooting big idea after big idea at you, both serious and entertainingly silly.

Assuming this standard can be maintained, this trilogy will be a great ride.
