Wow, I was pretty blown away by this book. The twists and turns surprised me and the pacing was fantastic. The author had sent me a copy before release to check the formatting on the Kindle (he did an impeccable job). I look forward to more in the Stardrifter series!
The Dame Minne is adrift in space, her engines failing with a crew of four trying desperately to return to port. Each member is dual specialized and two begin to make attempts at repairing the engine. The endeavor is made all the more difficult by the appearance of a mysterious ship. Could they be a godsend or more pirates to deal with? To further complicate matters a merchant ship is en route to the jump location and interception seem inevitable. How can the crew repair the Dame Minne, repel the pirates and protect the merchant ship? Well you will have to read to find out and I do believe you will be quite entertained.
If you are at all familiar with Lostnbronx’s audio productions, most notably the Eddie K series, you might recall the ribald humor present in that work. Well Motherload is squeaky clean compared to that audio book but yet retains a healthy level a maturity. That makes this book an all ages read, yet will probably on be appreciated by adolescents and older.
I look forward to the audio adaption of this novella.
