Starfall is the first book in Jessie Kwak's Durga System series, a fast-paced series of gangster sci-fi novellas set in a far-future world where humans may have left their home planet to populate the stars - but they haven't managed to leave behind humanity's more unsavory tendencies. You'll find captivating characters and heart-pounding adventures, all with Kwak's customary sprinkling of wry humor.

Rich and vivid story
Which scene was your favorite?
The opening sequence was my favorite. The world was a painting, and I couldn't get enough.
Any additional comments?
If you like any kind of sci-fi or fantasy books, then you'll love this. Its characters are rich and developed, and the story is solid and so enjoyable. The pacing and tension fit so well with the world Jessie Kwak created. I felt as though I was there, breathing with the characters and living their lives along with them.

Sci-Fi, but not a Space Opera
I went in to this expecting a space opera. While it is definitely sci-fi, it's not really a space opera. Spaceships and interplanetary relations, the exploration of deep space, etc., are present, but not center stage.
It took me a while to get in to, but it picked up after about half an hour in. The characters are well written and consistent, but don't "jump off the page."
I feel like Scott Dai's voice would be a lot of fun to listen to in real life, but it's deep enough that it's kind of hard to understand over a speaker or headphones. A few times I had to rewind simply because I couldn't understand what he was saying.
Be warned, there are a few f-bombs dropped in the course of the book. Two, if I remember correctly.
All in all, I'd say it's worth a read, and I'm interested to see what happens as the Durga System matures beyond a single novella.
