Simon Cantan was, for me, the discovery of 2014. I started with his Bytarend series and was instantly hooked on his extremely readable, comical and flowing style. He has now hooked up with Dave Higgins to write (amongst others) Greenstar. This book is the introduction to the series, and I defy anybody with even a slight affection for the genre to not buy the complete book after they have finished these first three episodes. I know that I can't wait to find out what Josie and the crew get up to next. There are so many lovely touches in here, from an AI that hates humans but is forced to keep them alive by electronic shackles, the captain of a starship on a peace mission that somehow only brings death and destruction wherever it goes and wonderously constructed aliens that make you laugh just picturing them (not that I would ever want to come face to face with them, I'll leave that to Josie!). To conclude, do yourself a favour, download this book and enjoy!
