About Marva Dasef

Born in Eugene, OR and a grad of the UofO, I still made a success of my life by constantly changing jobs and cashing in miserable 401K earnings. Finally, I decided to hell with it. If I'm going to be poor, I might as well be a writer.

Reviews of First Duty by Marva Dasef

Wendy Cockcroft reviewed on Dec. 3, 2012

Finely detailed space opera that follows the story of space service cadet Nyra Hutchings as she discovers what it is to live as the subject of a corporate-controlled world — and that it's not her only option.

A chance encounter with the insurgent Caspar leads her into a greater adventure than she could have imagined. As she tries to find the line between right and wrong, Nyra learns that some things are not worth sacrificing.

This is a pacy story that provides a researched, science-based look at what life in a future of space travel would be like. Nyra is vulnerable, naive, and grows as she learns through bitter experience that her choices have been made for her and she never had a real say in her life until she decided to throw off the corporate shackles that held her back.

I recommend this story for those readers who like Star Wars, Babylon 5, and stories that hold up a mirror to our own society.
