Product description

Book Description

Set in the world of ELITE: DANGEROUS, established Gollancz authors Stephen Deas and Gavin Smith give us a pulse-pounding tale of space piracy and law enforcement!

About the Author

Stephen Deas was born in 1968. He once set fire to Wales. Well one bit of Wales. Twice. When not burning principalities, he played too much D&D. Despite this he managed to study theoretical physics at Cambridge, get a job at BAE, marry and have two children. He now lives in Essex. With THE ADAMANTINE PALACE he plans to return to his first love: that of setting fire to things.

Gavin Smith lives in Leicester. With a degree in media production and an MA in Medieval History he is the worst person in the world to watch a historical movie with. He may be the best person to write the next book you read if you like your SF cranked up to maximum.

I found this a gripping story, fast paced and full of tension between the main characters. The fact that it's set in a highly believable version of the Elite universe is a bonus.
I did find it a little strange that most of the male characters are described negatively but guess that's because the two main characters are women who's views have been shaped by their histories.
Excellent stuff and I look forward to reading more work from this author.

All three Gollancz Elite novels are great reads but if you want a book that makes you feel like you're in the Elite Universe then this is it.

It's chock full of space battles, bounty hunters and pirates. Descriptions of various space stations and space ships (one of the main characters flies a classic Fer-de-Lance), and great imagery of different star systems and planets throughout the Galaxy.

For my money, a must read for any Elite fan.

Not sure why but it took me a while to get into this book, I'd pick it up, read a chapter and put it down again without that 'just one more chapter' feeling. I kept going in this vain for about the first third of the book but I persevered, and I'm glad I did because before I knew it, I'd suddenly found myself hooked, strapped in and rocketing through the pages to the end.

The book is well written, it does contain the occasional swear world and has some violence but nothing TOO graphic.

MILD SPOILER ALERT: I would have liked a epilogue if i'm honest as I felt like i'd been left a bit hanging at the end there, but I suppose it has set up a potential sequel

Bloody Brilliant!!! Definitely for anyone who loves piracy, bounty hunting, betrayal and intrigue. The characters are well fleshed out and I found myself caring for them despite their imperfections. Plan on visiting the fringe systems and pirate stations mentioned in this book! It'll be interesting to see if one particular system is as dangerous as it's portrayed in this book! Really couldn't put this down. Gavin, you'd better sort out the sequel double quick or I'll be getting out the voodoo doll, understand??;-).

For fans of the Elite universe or not, a great read! Looking forward to more.

This is the first book that I`ve read that is based in the new Elite Dangerous universe. I`m impressed. Could have easily changed the ship type names and the names of some of the star systems and stations and it would have passed for a really good space novel. I found it a very refreshing read, and enjoyed it a great deal.

I would recommend this book to anyone who has played the game and also to those who haven`t........yet.

1st the book, then the game and after reading this surely the potential for a film..!
An excellent book that kept me guessing to the very end. Vivid pictures and an interesting story. Without spoilers it finishes leaving you wanting more. Mr Braben a sequel..?
Recommended.

By A. Whitehead TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 Feb. 2015
Format: Hardcover
The 34th Century. A routine bit of piracy goes badly wrong, leaving the crew of the Song of Stone wanted by both the authorities and the most lethal criminal gang in inhabited space. When a bounty hunter famed for being relentless and efficient gets on their tail, events rapidly spiral out of control.

The Elite video game series has always had a good relationship with its tie-in fiction. The original game, released in 1984, had very simple graphics so relied on the manual and flavour text to fit in a lot of the background. Key to this was The Dark Wheel, a novella written by Robert Holdstock (who won the World Fantasy Award the same year for his seminal Mythago Wood) which brought the setting to life with memorable characters and a focused storyline about revenge and family.

For the release of Elite: Dangerous, the fourth game in the series, a whole line of new books are being released from several different publishers. First out of the gate is Wanted, a collaboration between Stephen Deas (best-known for the Memory of Flames fantasy sequence) and Gavin Smith (Veteran, War in Heaven, Age of Scorpio). This novel focuses on pirates, bounty-hunters and the dividing line between the law and lawlessness, key features of the Elite games which can also be used to generate good stories.

Wanted has a simple but extremely effective structure: chapters alternate between Captain Ravindra of the Song of Stone and Ziva, pilot of the Dragon Queen and one of the most renowned bounty hunters around. The characterisation of these two leading figures is strong, with the authors setting up each captain's motivations (Ravindra's wayward son and Ziva's relationship problems) and using them to drive the story forward.

I really enjoyed this and the finale (without giving too much away) had me gripped; I couldn't read fast enough!

Action! Adventure! Space pirates! What more could you want?
