Released today: Starflight by Melissa Landers...
Life in the outer realm is a lawless, dirty, hard existence, and Solara Brooks is hungry for it. Just out of the orphanage, she needs a fresh start in a place where nobody cares about the engine grease beneath her fingernails or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. She's so desperate to reach the realm that she's willing to indenture herself to Doran Spaulding, the rich and popular quarterback who made her life miserable all through high school, in exchange for passage aboard the spaceliner Zenith.
When a twist of fate lands them instead on the Banshee, a vessel of dubious repute, Doran learns he's been framed on Earth for conspiracy. As he pursues a set of mysterious coordinates rumored to hold the key to clearing his name, he and Solara must get past their enmity to work together and evade those out for their arrest. Life on the Banshee may be tumultuous, but as Solara and Doran are forced to question everything they once believed about their world--and each other--the ship becomes home, and the eccentric crew family. But what Solara and Doran discover on the mysterious Planet X has the power to not only alter their lives, but the existence of everyone in the universe...
Wow!!!! This book was AMAZING! I became a Melissa Landers fan when I read Alienated and I really didn't think I would like this book as much as that series. Boy, was that worry pointless! This book was even better than I ever imagined and is now my favorite Melissa Landers book. It's that good!!!
Starflight introduces us to Solara, a convicted felon in a futuristic world who is taking a big gamble to improve her life. Enter Doran, a cocky, rich, self-assured jerk who finds himself smack dab in the middle of a controversy of his own, a controversy that has him labeled as one of the most wanted men in the galaxy. Solara and Doran form an uneasy alliance on the Banshee, an aging ship with an interesting and eclectic group of crew members.
As the group travels the galaxy, they find themselves in unusual circumstances, collecting enemies everywhere they go. Shocking revelations will shake everything Solara and Doran thought about their lives, what they needed to do, and where they would end up. New bonds create lasting connections in this action-packed intergalactic tale full of danger, friendship, romance, forgiveness, and betrayal.
I love this book!!! The characters are wonderful, such a great group of different and unique personalities. I loved seeing the relationship between Solara and Doran change as their shared journey continued. I cannot wait until the sequel comes out because this is one world you're not going to want to leave!
