Jasmine awoke with a start. She wasn't sure what had woken her, so she held her breath and listened carefully. A few moments later, she heard it. A cracking noise. There it was again. "Norik?" she called out quietly.

When he didn't reply, Jasmine climbed down from her bunk, her blanket wrapped tightly around her. "Norik?" she tried again. Jasmine didn't want to get too close in case he flipped out and tried to smoosh her into the deck again. Two more somethings cracked. "Norik!" she hissed.

"Hmm?" he murmured.

"There's a noise," she whispered to him, and edged closer when it looked as if he wasn't going to fly into attack mode.

"What noise?" he asked, and listened. When he didn't hear anything, he told her, "Everyone is dead, go back to sleep."

She opened her mouth, stunned as he turned his back to her. The noise was a little louder this time and she exclaimed, "That noise!"

Norik looked over his bad shoulder at her and said, "It is the hull contracting as the inside of the ship cools down to meet the temperature outside."

"Oh," she said, and then when the reality of what he said settled in, she jumped forward and clutched at his arm. "What? The outside? The outside is space!"

I picked this one up as a free download - I enjoyed it so much that I bought the set. The characters were engaging and it had a good story with plenty of pace and a touch of humour.

Everything in a short story you could want. It could easily have been padded out to make a longer novel, but it was an enjoyable read.

Another easy read. The characters and story were ok. Just didn't feel a lot of connection to them. It was funny in bots though

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced romance set against an unforgiving science fiction frontier... 19 Jun. 2011
By Alex Westriver - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like it. At first glance, it is a story of an intelligent, crafty, headstrong woman with a rapier wit and sharper tongue meets tall, dark, and handsome who has serious girl issues and a strong left cross. Jasmine is engaging and insufferable while Norik is tenacious and unforgiving. Immersed in the depths of space, a chance encounter becomes a fight for survival. Everything seems to spin out of control and all they can do is trust in each other. This story comes at you fast and makes for a quick, good read, which makes you wonder what will happen to them next. If you are in for a different kind of romance, this one set against the backdrop of space, Callisto Adrift will do nicely.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad 12 Feb. 2013

The characters in this book are very likable, and there is a lot of funny dialog throughout the story. I found this book very entertaining, but it was too short in my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Adrift (Callisto Series - Book 1) 22 Nov. 2013
By Daniel Bowen - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The plot was interesting, the characters were well fleshed out, the book was well edited and the pace was just right. There were no cliff hangers and the love interest has their HEA. . . Although for awhile you wonder if that will ever happen.

With that all said the length of this novella means the story could have been fleshed out more with a satisfactory conclusion on the genetic experiments. We know the people behind that were taken out but I'm sure there's children out there already 'in the system', being trained to kill. Taking out the top guys doesn't mean the mad scientist isn't still out there, experimenting and causing mayhem. The relationship between the H & h needs a bit more maturing, too -- To know their relationship will work beyond surviving against all odds. -- Dan's Wife

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Done. 18 Dec. 2013
By A VEGAN &VEGETARIAN - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you know classic Star Trek then you'll see a little parallel here and there but it's fine. It makes the characters more familiar if you don't dwell on it. The story holds its own and is entertaining enough to keep you moving along at a good pace. Best of all the author doesn't try to stretch situations out to try and pad the content. Bad guy taken care of reasonably, not an out of control super villain. All is realistic enough to not have you second guessing things or shaking your head in disbelief. Like I said. Well done.
