Review by: James Jenkins on Oct. 23, 2015 :
It was ok, I have read similar works about FTL and destruction of the universe. though mostly not from this perspective.

I found the restrictions that created a universe where the science was controlled by such a small group in such a larger universe unlikely, but barely possible.

A very entertaining short story/novella (I'm not sure what it qualifies as). As other reviewers have said, Malcolm Pierce gives a fully thought out universe and some interesting characters as part of a ragtag crew that is trying to reunite the universe - only their "captain" (who is little more than an ambitious college student) really doesn't have a plan. I read through this story in less than an hour and then started on the second one shortly thereafter, and will certainly go to work on the third one quite soon. I really hope that Pierce continues on in this universe. The fact that they're free is really terrific - I'd be more than willing to pay for them

as an avid sci fi reader i highly enjoyed this book. it was a very engaging read! what i liked best was the interaction of the characters, (the imperfect captain and his skeptical crew) and their dialogue is actually pretty funny. there is enough sci fi premise to keep me going. and now i want to know what happens next. looking fwd to the next book

A fun read. I immediately downloaded the sequel.

Pierce has produced a fully imagined universe, a sort of Firefly meets Star Trek—that he can take in many directions.
