I have never been a Science Fiction fan but I have found myself taking steps in that direction. This novella, helped me take a leap.
My issue with Science Fiction is that it is not realistic – I know I hear you “but they are Sci Fi”. But listen (or read) for a moment. If I cannot connect with a book on some level, I can’t enjoy it. Things that are two unbelievable with no logical base are hard for me.
This story is Sci Fi at its best. Things that were not realistic to me were explained. There was a logical presentation of future worlds and technology. And most importantly at the core was a strong lead character with realistic feelings. Jewel, the main character is a Seeker – kind of like a bounty hunter. She is given a private case (on paper – loved those little details about her dealing with such a foreign object as paper) to locate and retrieve a brother she did not know she had. I really enjoyed this story and can’t wait to see what else comes from these authors.
Seeker is part of a much larger collaboration. If you’re a Science Fiction fan (or just a wanna be) take a moment and check out their website HERE. There are lots of goodies to read.
Jewel Harper, a junior specialist in a successful bounty-hunter group, returns from a routine mission only to find a new contract already prepared – a private contract to rescue a brother she didn’t know she had. The mission takes Jewel to a few different homeworlds — and into some trouble. She will learn that pretty much everybody knows more about her family than she does.
This is a stand-alone story set in the ChaosNova universe. Humans have spread to new homeworlds in a “goldilocks cluster” somewhere in the Galaxy, where the many homeworlds harbour several dominant civilizations as well as various local cultures, ancient and new. This story-verse, borne of forum-based roleplay and collaboration between several authors, holds many more characters and adventures, with varying degrees of connection to the central arc. Some of those stories are being written now, many are yet to be told.
