About J.A. Marlow

It's said I was launched into space from birth and I haven't been back to Earth since.

There might be some truth in that.

As a reader I love science fiction with great plots, interesting characters, exotic locales, all accompanied by a sense of wonder with optimistic endings. As a writer, I love the same.

Review by: Kat Ross on Dec. 23, 2011 :
I love YA novels. The innocence the characters is refreshing after the “gritty realism” of most of the adult novels.

This is no different. Even though the main character’s age is never revealed, you get the impression she is still young; at least young enough to want adventure and to be disappointed when her life seems boring. The plot moves quickly, moving from one reveal to another, never slowing down long enough for you to get distracted. There are just enough hints of the legend of Der fliegende Holländer mixed with subtle difference to make the story familiar and fresh at the same time.

It was a fun ride that ended too quickly.

My only complaint is that the story ended just before the real journey began. Where is Vist from? What happened to his people? So many questions unanswered.

I wanted this story to go on. It was way too short for my taste. I loved the ship, and the main character was spunky and resourceful. I would have loved to see what happens if they travel further. Hopefully there will be a sequel some time.
