Adventures of the Manic Raven
November 24, 2008 - Amy Phelps
Science-fiction and adventure combine with a wry sense of humor in D.S. Meyers' "Adventures of the Manic Raven."
Giran was supposed to be living his dream on Capital City, the moon base above Mars. But he's finding life there to be dreadfully dull, even when he gets put in charge of helping to design the flight systems on the new ship, the Manic Raven. After seeing all of his hard work go through with barely any credit, Giran wishes he could pilot the ship. First some 'test drives' and then he ends up stealing the ship to try to enact a rescue mission - one that fails terribly and lands him in prison.
But suddenly his 'lawyer' is helping him literally escape prison and he joins a group that are hijacking the Manic Raven for their own purposes. And Giranás going to get the freedom he's always dreamed of. But is freedom ever really free? Can he trust his new 'crewmates?' Soon Giran finds himself working with a group of extremists who want their own space by any means and getting the adventure of a lifetime. If he survives it, that is.
The best part of this book is the snappy dialogue between Giran and his crewmates. They're snarky when they probably shouldn't be, and that's what makes it so enjoyable. The science fiction aspect isn't so technologically advanced that it loses me and the sense of adventure is fun.
'Adventures of the Manic Raven' is published by 1st Books and is available at www.amazon.com. Book two, "Race to VIP" is coming soon.
