Book Description

The Eighties are back. A science-fiction series as over-the-top as the best Eighties action movies ever were.

Kyra Sarin has survived five years of the hardest fighting mankind has ever seen. On her way back to Earth, to finally see her children again, the space station she stops at is taken over by terrorists. It’s the last mistake they’re ever going to make.

WARNING: This title features strong language and gory violence. If you're easily offended, look away now.

More About the Author

An avid reader from an early age, Simon Cantan loved to get lost in the worlds that Piers Anthony, Douglas Adams, and others created. When he read Harry Harrison's "The Stainless Steel Rat Gets Drafted" at the age of thirteen, he knew he wanted to write, and has been pestering people about it ever since.

Two decades later, Simon has published several books, including the "Bytarend" series, "Shiny New Swindle", and "Hard Vacuum". He continues to write science-fiction and fantasy, usually with a humorous slant to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Die Hard in space 26 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nothing wrong with having a ultra-violent novella set in a space station! Just like Die Hard, the action is constant, just as Kyra thinks she's safe, more baddies appear (and get smeared :))

Looking forward to the sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good start 13 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved this and thought the main protagonist was very well presented. It needs to be the start of something bigger though as this is quite short.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simon Cantan does it again. 15 Jan. 2014
By Tony
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Simon Cantan says he wanted this story to be in the style of the Eighties Movies, well I have to say he has succeeded wonderfully. Its a fast moving story with lots of action and a wise cracking hero, who is female for a change, step aside Arni here comes Kyra. So if you love the Eighties Action Movies, love Action Movies in general or just love a good read, this is the story for you. The only trouble is you get to the end and want More. So come on Simon lets have book two, Soon.

Good read but the description is perhaps a little more hyped than the book.
