Firefly meets Dune in this action-packed sci-fi adventure about a close-knit, found family of a crew navigating a galaxy of political intrigue and resource-driven power games.
Nev has just joined the crew of the starship Kaitan Heritage as the cargo loader. His captain, Qole, is the youngest-ever person to command her own ship, but she brooks no argument from her crew of orphans, fugitives, and con men. Nev can’t resist her, even if her ship is an antique.
As for Nev, he’s a prince, in hiding on the ship. He believes Qole holds the key to changing galactic civilization, and when her cooperation proves difficult to obtain, Nev resolves to get her to his home planet by any means necessary.
But before they know it, a rival royal family is after Qole too, and they’re more interested in stealing her abilities than in keeping her alive.
Nev’s mission to manipulate Qole becomes one to save her, and to survive, she’ll have to trust her would-be kidnapper. He may be royalty, but Qole is discovering a deep reservoir of power—and stars have mercy on whoever tries to hurt her ship or her crew.
Adrianne Strickland and Michael Miller's Shadow Run sounds like an exciting and fun YA science fiction adventure in space! A part of me is already halfway in love with Qole. She's the captain of a ship! And not just any ship, but one run by orphans, fugitives, and con men! She must be a BOSS to get that kind of respect. And what kind of abilities does Qole have?! And, oh yeah, there's Nev, a prince in hiding on Qole's starship with some secrets of his own...
I hope you have Shadow Run on the top of your must-read lists too!
