Review by: Stewart Bint on March 06, 2016 :
Loved this story...but then I'm a sucker for what I regard as old-style science fiction told in an entertaining and interesting way.

Neat build-up on Earth, where our young hero is faced with a mystery which is solved with the help of a girl, who I'm sure we're all rooting to become his girlfriend. I won't say what happens...SPOILERS.

Then, off we go through space to a high-tech planet where a "can't refuse" proposition is put to him.

As he settles into his new home light years from Earth we look on in awe at the new technology opening up to him...and the alien creatures he encounters. There were shades of the comic-dramatic reminiscent of the Star Wars bar scenes, When Theo pushes his luck with an ugly alien. And the twist about that -- well I never saw it coming.

R.E. Weber's writing flows along nicely, from the nice, gentle beginning and middle, to the more action-packed final third.

Good descriptions throughout...I really felt as if I were there with Theo, experiencing his exciting new life.

Brilliant Storytelling, or, The Birth of The Magnificent Seven

I have had this book on my "books to read" list since December, always choosing another book to read, any book, as long as it was not sci-fi. Finally, there was no getting around it, and author R.E. Weber's, "The Star Agency" got his day in court. Let me say right now I was pleasantly surprised. The story telling genuinely merits the descriptive term, "brilliant". It held me engaged throughout the entire book.

The plot is well-developed, with a thoroughly likable protagonist, a 13-year-old boy named Theopolis. Of course, he hates that name, and prefers to be called "Theo". His best friend is a 12-year-old girl named Julie, whom Theo prefers to call "Jules". Theo's grandfather has recently died (Theo had been taking care of him). His aunt has come to live with him, as Theo refuses to leave Brightside Farm, which he now owns since his grandfather's death.

In sum, we have a young boy trying to deal with his emotions after the loss of the grandfather who he cherished. He does not get along well with his aunt. We can see they do not share any emotional bonds, any affection, nothing that would make their relationship special to either of them. Theo connects emotionally with Jules, who understands his feelings about losing his grandfather. Into this scenario comes the precipitating event, the arrival of a mysterious letter and a package containing an old newspaper...It will lead to an adventure 500 light years away, a new life in a new and fantastic world...Highly recommended for young readers, teens, and adults who enjoy sci-fi.

The Star Agency (The Star Agency Chronicles) by R.E. Weber

Theopolis James Logan is trying to get over the death of his grandfather, who has been taking care of him. Now his Auntie is taking care of him, which is not working well with him.

One day he gets a puzzling message on his computer and decides with his best friend to figure it out. Later he finds himself on another planet, the aliens want him as part of their Star Agency.

A fun story, Theo is very likable. I liked the writing style, and the story line. I think this would be perfect for middle school readers (as well as young adult and adults too).
