    Firefly meets Mass Effect in this thrilling self-published debut! When Rosemary Harper joins the crew of the Wayfarer, she isn't expecting much. The Wayfarer, a patched-up ship that's seen better days, offers her everything she could possibly want: a small, quiet spot to call home for a while, adventure in far-off corners of the galaxy, and distance from her troubled past. But Rosemary gets more than she bargained for with the Wayfarer.

    An amazing breath of fresh air - sci-fi @ its best

    Rosemary Harper doesn't expect much when she joins the crew of the aging Wayfarer. While the patched-up ship has seen better days, it offers her a bed, a chance to explore the far-off corners of the galaxy, and, most importantly, some distance from her past. An introspective young woman, she's never met anyone remotely like the ship's diverse crew, including Sissix, the exotic reptilian pilot; chatty engineers Kizzy and Jenks, who keep the ship running; and Ashby, their noble captain.

    Wonderful characters; no real plot

    A great ensemble cast with beautiful dynamics among them. Fun, comforting. But no real plot! Lots of little episodes, but tension never develops excep..Show More »

    Galactic Commons, interesting place

    Enjoyed this story even more than the first one. I enjoyed the alternating P.O.V. along with the depth of description and world building. The intera..Show More »

    No drive in the story

    I loved the first book in this series, it was like reading a book about an episode of Firefly. This book did noe really have a story, or a problem tha..Show More »
