Publisher's Summary

If space doesn't kill David Dixon, Earth will.

Astronaut David Dixon's first mission to space goes horribly awry when a gunfight breaks out on a Russian space station. He finds himself making an emergency landing from orbit and becomes the most wanted man on Earth. Desperate to unravel the plot he's found himself in, he takes his pursuers on a wild chase from space to the backstreets of Rio and beyond. Dixon's survival relies on his skills as a pilot and willingness to do whatever it takes, from crashing a passenger jet into the Mexican desert to pulling off an incredible heist in Low Earth Orbit.

    "A SciFi Thriller that won't let go"

    My mistake was starting this at night. It took a real effort of will to pause when I did because I had to sleep. Once you start this roller coaster, you won't want to get off. Great setup for a series. I hope Andrew writes the sequel!

    This is the best original scifi I've read in years. The science is very believable and doesn't bog down the story. Dan Dixon is an everyman you route for from the beginning. This is a self contained story that really enjoyed. The ending was thin but everything was wrapped up, and I actually didn't guess the ending before it happened. Thanks for surprising me Andrew!

    If you want a great hard SF thriller that you can't put down and demands a sequel, I recommend this book.

    "Amazing once again"

    All of Andrew Mayne's books are great and this one did not disappoint! It's the Martian but in space and instead of the world wanting to bring Mark home they want him executed as a terrorist. The action and "I can't wait to hear what happens next" were Non-Stop. <>

    Story
    "Self-aware, science-based sci-fi"

    Fast pace, great character, science-based sci-fi, witty self aware dialogue. I'm not sure if the main character is the luckiest unlucky guy alive or the unluckiest lucky guy alive, but he sure is fun to follow through this adventure. My only complaint is it ended...oh wait there is a second book.

    Story
    "Whats a McGuffin?"

    The story plot is interesting and unique. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Fast paced and engrossing. My two favorite types of fiction in one. What made it even better was that it was also laugh out loud funny. For example this line..."I don't care if the DarkStar (ship) doesn't return my text tomorrow...."

    I have to say, the narrator was really great at sound effects. I don't know if I 've ever heard so many loud and dramatic bams!! and bangs!! in one book. He's pretty good. I know someone compared this story to The Martian but I don't know if I'd go that far. This character tended to be a little more whiney. However the story overall was engrossing plus I even learned a lot about space travel in the near future.

    Story
    "Non-stop and action-packed"

    This book was full of action from beginning to end and kept me idling in my car unable to turn it off.
    I felt like I was listening to a weird things fan-fiction (which is a good thing) because of the scenarios the lead character kept getting himself into and the way he uses science to get himself out of.
    Everything in this book was meticulously thought out to always respect realism instead of taking a narrative or literary short-cut to get us a similar result.

    Story
    "A great novel ... but incomplete."
    Any additional comments?

    This book is great. Another reviewer characterized it as 'The Martian' but in space and with espionage elements, and I agree with that. The book has a never-let-up breakneck pace with action scene after action scene, but the tone overall is humorous and much more human than the usual operator-as-hardened-cyborg tone of most special operations thrillers.

    My only quibble is the way the story is split into two books. The first book ends on a cliffhanger which means you have to buy the second book to complete the first story arc. The 2nd book in the series does have a separate story arc, but that story doesn't start until a few chapters in. It would have been very easy to take the first few chapters of 'Orbital' and put them at the end of 'Station Breaker' and both books would have each been complete.

    But both books are pretty great, so it's not a dealbreaker.
