Vitalis: New Beginnings

First off, way short and ends like a chapter. This should be put together with the other books as one instead of this. Not sure If I am going to read the rest yet.

I did like her character but would have felt more vested in the story if there was more reason for her to save the rest of the crew.

This was another story Jason Halstead published which immersed me into the lives of his characters. Not normally a reader of science fiction, I must admit that this series promises to be exciting, taking me into worlds I could never have imagined, despite the wildest of dreams.

Talking about myself in the third person is giving me fits - time to switch this up.

My day job is that of a computer jockey and all the hands on and hands off work that entails. When I leave the office behind I jump into family life (beautiful wife and two obnoxiously cute young children), finding a new way to hurt myself while powerlifting, and writing.

As of mid 2015 I haven't hit the 100 book ma
