Not bad. The character dialogue was believable and interesting enough to keep reading. The main characters are great. The ideas behind the story are interesting, and pretty cool, however I didn't feel like it all came together properly.

Although the dialogue reads well, entirely too much of it is spent shipboard for the first half of the book. The (view spoiler) that happened shipboard didn't read like there was any sense of urgency prior to the arrival at Dremiks. Also

I do love space stories and had been looking forward to reading this one for a while. In the end I did enjoy this one, althogh not quite as much as I had expected to; after giving it some thought I think I was influenced by a higher than normal amount of editing errors. One of the issues was a slightly bizarre use of waive everywhere wave should have been used. (The author is looking into this.)

Unfortunately typos can sometimes lead to my being harsher on a book - I think partly because they tak

I loved Dremiks. I want to get that out of the way now because it’s all I’ve been saying for almost a week. This is apparently Cassandra Davis’s debut novel, and it’s a good one.

There are spaceships. There are bombs. There’s aliens. And conspiracies, power plays, deception and saboteurs…There’s even chocolate.

But first, there’s a treaty.

Humans and Dremikians have worked out an agreement for humans to begin settling on the planet of Dremiks, which is now inhospitable to the Dremikians. All they h

Could not put this one down! This is one of the few books where I did not see the plot twist coming! Great story development and writing. As a man reading a woman protagonist, I did not find her difficult to understand. She and her challenges are relatable. I consider this an accomplishment for any character in a science fiction story. I also found the other characters interesting and well developed. The premise and world of Dremiks is fascinating, exciting, and I eagerly anticipate coming back ...more

Once I started reading "Dremiks", I couldn't stop. I was driven to install the Kindle reader on my computer, my tablet, and my phone, just so I didn't have to be apart from this amazing novel before I reached the end. It was refreshing to read a novel that managed to have a strong (yet realistically human) female lead character without taking a tone of misandry. I genuinely hope Cassandra Davis continues to write in this universe, as I find myself eager to hear of Commander Maggie O'Connell's ne ...more

Cassandra Davis has done a wonderful job with this book! The political fighting amongst the humans was one thing, but added to that the aliens made it even better.

It plays out as a political/mystery in space but is so much more than that. Space Opera readers should definitely take a look at this.

I will definitely recommend this book to those that like the genre. Heck even if they don't like the genre I'll recommend it.

Un’appassionante space opera

C’è tanto lavoro dietro questo romanzo. Lo si percepisce dalla sua lunghezza, la complessità della trama, la quantità di personaggi e come le loro vicende sono intrecciate, la cura dei dettagli e persino la sua suddivisione in un gran numero di scene, che ci forniscono il quadro di una storia davvero imponente, una di quelle per cui non vedi l’ora di rimetterti a leggere.
In un’atmosfera un po’ alla Star Trek troviamo l’equipaggio de

While I can admit to being somewhat biased because the author is a dear friend, I will say that I enjoyed the book immensely. It is a very good first novel and she sets forth an interesting universe that I hope she will return to again. I would like to see more interaction with humans and the other races.

I would definitely put this on my summer beach reading list.

Dremiks is a combination of Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, and the Big Bang Theory — in other words — great plot, abundant characters, plenty of action, enough science to make the story credible, and just enough romance to keep you believing that all this could really happen. I look forward to reading more from Cassandra Davis.

I am slightly biased because I know the author ... but even if I didn't I would read this for the wonderful and strong female protagonist. Witty with quick, sharp writing and a wonderfully written interpersonal relationships.

Cassandra Davis has created a fantastic universe and developed some truly engaging characters to play in it. I really enjoyed reading this book and recommend it to every lover of science fiction space drama out there.

Book starts off really slow, but about a third of the way in it picks up. But half-way through, you are hooked.

In the not-so-distant future, a race of aliens has offered Earth a deal – The Dremikians will provide humans with their advanced technology if humanity agrees to save their doomed home planet of Dremiks from destruction. What the crew of the Hudson – Earth’s first intergalactic starship – don’t realize is that there are a those who don’t want them to succeed, or even reach Dremiks.

Dremiks is the name of an alien planet on the edges of the known universe and it is in trouble. Its inhabitants need us to mine a very important element that will help halt the planets destruction and in return, they will help us establish a colony there. And so, a new spaceship, fitted with Dremiks technology, heads out to the distant stars.

Dremiks is your classic, average space-opera with much of the action set in deep space as the crew and colonists deal with unplanned pregn

This is another one of those space stories. Coincidentally I was in the mood for such a book, when I found this one out. Unfortunately due to the high amount of grammar and spelling issues, I had difficulty really getting into this book. I assumed that a book with spaceships, aliens, conspiracy, and massive explosives, would have a bit more substance to the story line.

It didn't help that the most of the book seemed to be an introduction to the ship and the characters on board. The author hints

Pretty good space opera, featuring an interstellar colony flight. Of course there are conspiracies and sabotage that occur. The plot has been done before, but this was enjoyable, with lots of character interaction and a fair bit of mystery.

I absolutely adored this book and would recommend it. My only complaint is it needed better editing as there were a few spelling/reference errors that could have been easily corrected with the right person wielding the red pen.

Cassandra Davis (Amy to her friends and family) was raised an army brat: constantly traveling, making new friends every four years, and surrounded by an unique military culture. In the seventh grade, she complained to her English teacher that she’d read every fiction book in the library. The teacher handed Cassandra a blank notebook and told her to write her own stories.

“Do I think it was inherent nobility that brought us out here?” He shook his head. “Maybe. I don’t call it nobility, though. I think it’s our innate human need to champion the underdog. We are constant optimists. We’re the emotional descendents of the caveman who stood defiant in the front of the wooly mammoth. We rebuild cities at the base of Vesuvius, get back on the bicycle when we fall off, whack that hornet’s nest every spring. Humans cheer for the couldn’t be, believe in the shouldn’t be. We love causes; the harder, the more lost they are, the more we love them. Is that nobility?Maybe. Maybe it’s a pernicious genetic defect that makes our species susceptible to shared delusion. Whatever it is, it keeps life interesting.” 2 likes
