Publisher's Summary

Molon Hawkins, a daring, free merc captain, earns his living navigating the dangerous borders between factions in the civil war that shattered humanity's vast star empire. For the former scout captain and his veteran command crew aboard Star Wolf, most contracts are milk runs. When a routine rescue mission goes awry, Molon finds his rescuee, Dr. John Salzmann, inextricably tied into a web of intrigue that threatens to upset the balance of power in the galaxy. Can Molon and John follow the threads and discover the forces behind the plot? If so, what can a lone ship do to stop it?

This is Why We Read Indie

I have to say that starting off I found the book to be overly campy. A few things happened that made no sense, and I put the book down for a bit. But then I talked to a friend who also read the book, and she encouraged me to keep going.

The story became very complex with unexpected twists, and an adventure that swept me along. I could not put it down. I kept wanting to know what happened next! Ended up reading the entire book in three days, and was left off wanting more.

Originally, due to the shaky beginning, I had no intention of giving this book more than 4 stars. To me a 5 star rating is strictly for something on the level of The Martian or the book equivalent of The Matrix - something with deep philosophy and an engaging story that stands out.

This book earned that 5 star rating. It was engaging and adventurous, bringing in many of the best elements of both science fiction and fantasy.

This is why we read Indie.


A few readers might be offset by the fact that many of the characters, both good guys and bad guys, hold to the Christian Faith. If you are rabidly anti "Religion" then this book may not be for you. May I instead suggest a book about Hercules or the Force? Not every book is meant for every reader, and that's okay!

But for those of you who are open to a space opera that deals with spirituality, including Christian themes, then this book is definitely one that you should try out.

The author explains what is happening well, so even young readers will be able to follow along. The only part I was confused about was keeping the "Twitch" and "Voide" characters straight in my head. So if you pay attention to their description at the beginning you will be fine. I intend to do this when I read the book the second time around in the next few weeks.


Disclaimer: I think that it is proper for me to mention that I do know the author personally. That said, I strived here to rate the book on it's own merits. I am in the same author group as the author, however I think the book stands on it's own, and I highly recommend it to others.

Every reader is different, and everyone has a different experience going into a book. Yours may be very different from mine, but I can definitely say that I enjoyed the adventure, and look forward to joining the bridge of Star Wolf again when the next book comes out!
