Solara Brooks needs a fresh start, someplace where nobody cares about the engine grease beneath her fingernails or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. The outer realm may be lawless, but it's not like the law has ever been on her side. Still, off-world travel doesn't come cheap; Solara is left with no choice but to indenture herself in exchange for passage to the outer realm. She just wishes it could have been to anyone besides Doran Spaulding, the rich, pretty-boy quarterback who made her life miserable in school. The tables suddenly turn, though, when Doran is framed for conspiracy on Earth, and Solara cons him into playing the role of her servant on board the Banshee, a ship manned by an eccentric crew with their own secrets. It's been a long time since Solara has believed in anyone, and Doran is the last person she expected to trust. But when the Banshee's dangerous enemies catch up with them, Solara and Doran must come together to protect the ship that has become their home, and the crew that feels like family.… (lisätietoja)

I really liked this book. I thought it was very well written and very cute. I love space and I love rag-tag groups of friends, so this book really spoke to me. I thoroughly enjoyed the main character of this book. I thought she was a very cool and believable character and even though none of my life experience is the same as hers, I still felt like I could relate to her. I liked the romance between the main character and the male lead. Yes it did seem to develop very fast, but I think the time period of this book was actually fairly long. Space travel to the other side of the galaxy, with all the stops their ship made, is not that fast. Even if it did develop quickly to some people, it still felt very believable and heartfelt to me and it felt like they really cared about each other. I also loved all the other people who were on the space ship. They all felt like such believable characters and all their relationships with each other and the way the all interacted together made them feel very real. They also all had flaws that really added to their characters, while everyone still had an important role to play and there was no expendable character which I really liked. When the captain died in the last couple of pages, I was so upset and I was always worried for the rest of the crew I truly fell in love with the characters. I also thought the pacing of this book was really good. There was a lot that happened at the beginning but it never felt to overwhelming. I thought the backstories off all the various characters as well as stories of their past troubles were very well placed in the story. I also thought all the plot twists were very well executed. I know I should have seen it coming since it is a very common trope, but I genuinely did not expect Doran's twin to still be alive. I think it's really a credit to the author that I didn't see it coming, and some other people may have been expecting it, but it caught me by surprise. I was not surprised by the fact that Doran's father was raising the prices of fuel and also didn't want anyone to make a long lasting fuel to compete with his supply. His character was established very early on as someone who would do anything to make more money, so I was not surprised that he raised fuel prices and wanted to destroy Gage's invention of an extremely long lasting fuel supply. This story was really right up my alley. From the family dynamic of the crew on the Banshee to just the space travel and the exploration of so many other worlds and planets, I was drawn in from the start. I loved all this twists and turns this story made to get us to the conclusion and it was an ending that I was very happy with. I am really looking forward to learning more about where everyone in the Banshee crew came from and also more about how this future earth operates and more about the justice systems and different groups of people we were introduced to in this book. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series and I wish it was coming out before 2017. ( )

Not too shabby. A fan sci-fi read that was both funny with an entertaining plot ( )

Orphan Solara Brooks wants a fresh start. She would do nearly anything to go somewhere that nobody will care about her past or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. She's desperate enough to sign on as a servant to Doran Spaulding, the rich kid who made her miserable in school, in exchange for her passage to the outer realm on the SS Zenith. In the outer realm, she will be able to work as a mechanic and not be judged for her past crimes.

But plans go awry, and she ends up on board another ship, the Banshee, with a crew of fugitives.....and Doran. As they battle space pirates, Enforcers, bounty hunters and solve a slew of other challenges, they come together to form a rag-tag family.

This was just a great YA space adventure! For me it was reminiscent of Firefly. The tale was filled with action, romance, and a bit of intrigue. Not really big on surprises.....the plot was a bit predictable. But, the characters are likable and the storyline exciting.

This is the first book in the Starflight series. The 2nd book is scheduled for publication in February 2017. Landers also penned the Alienated series, that has 2 books so far. Alienated and Invaded will be followed up by a 3rd book, United, in August 2016. There is also a short holiday story, Until Midnight, that is available to read in Kindle format for free on Amazon.

Bad, boring, disappointing, and poorly written.

Although I did laugh a few times, so I'll give it an extra star for that. ( )
