5.0 out of 5 stars Robin Hood in Space
Star Vigilante is one of the best hard sci-fi novels I've read in years.

T. Jackson King has put together an outstanding action-packed thriller complete with cyborgs, deadly aliens,spaceships and high-tech weaponry galore. What a thrilling read and page turner. The author keeps alive the traditions set by Robert C. Heinlein and Ray Bradbury.

2.0 out of 5 stars I do not hate it but it is so difficult to like it
I do not hate it but it is so difficult to like it.

I usually cannot stop reading even bad books. Fortunately I was able to put this one aside (with a shudder).

This review is from: Star Vigilante (Vigilante Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Star Vigilante is one of the best hard sci-fi novels I've read in years.

T. Jackson King has put together an outstanding action-packed thriller complete with cyborgs, deadly aliens,spaceships and high-tech weaponry galore. What a thrilling read and page turner. The author keeps alive the traditions set by Robert C. Heinlein and Ray Bradbury.

This novel has such scope, complexity and sense of humanity that it leaves the reader awed and inspired. It's a Robin Hood tale in space.

The author himself has a rich background. He's a longtime sci-fi writer, professional archaelogist (a modern Indiana Jones) and journalist, a former traditionally published author, and a top class science fiction writer.

At only $2.99, the Kindle version of this novel is a steal and well worth a much higher price.

My only quibbles with the book, and they are minor, is that the action is so relentless it hardly gives the reader time to breathe and a few scenes go on for an unnecessarily long time. A bit tighter editing is called for in places.

But if you're a sci-fi fan, you must read this book. I'm not a sci-fi writer but the book is an excellent example of how to write a great book. It has many of the elements of thrillers, which is my genre, and captivates the reader from beginning to end.

This is a solid, fun read and well worth your time. An unreserved 5-stars!

Excellent. Really enjoyed the read. The size and volume of the adventure must build to an epic story. I look forward to later books

4.0 out of 5 stars Left me wanting more, 8 April 2014

This review is from: Star Vigilante (Vigilante Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Very much enjoyed - classic hero romp. Tech content was high - I really enjoyed the explanations for all sorts of tech - I have no idea if any of it is based on fact but it comes across as highly believable - well done TJK. I have just purchased the next in the series. Danny
