Good old-fashioned/newfangled space opera,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sliding Void (Novella 1 of the Sliding Void science fiction series) (Kindle Edition)
Sliding Void is an exciting entrée to the alliance universe, Stephen Hunt's ongoing mission to entertain the hordes of science fiction hungry readers who miss TV series like Star Trek, StarGate and, well, just about anything else with a `star' in it (and a few that don't, such as Firefly).
This novella features the scoundrel crew of a free trading starship trying to make a fast buck on the right and wrong side of the law. For their first mission (well, at least as far as we are concerned), they have to pick up a new entrant to their motley ranks, a barbarian nobleman from a failed civilization.
If you love great characters and space opera in general, then you'll jump a light year or two for a work this amusing!
