REVIEW: Starflight

Author: Melissa Landers
YA Science fiction

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. 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.
