Outbound by Sonya Craig is not only one of the best Science Fiction stories I've ever read, it is also very nearly my favorite book.


There's so much action that it made my head spin. The characters are so diverse and the heroine, Taiga, is one super smart, funny, bad-ass chick! I found myself still immersed within the unique world hours after I had finished reading.

If you aren't peeing yourself with laughter the whole time you're reading this, then your brain must be pudding.

Not the good

Read this book quite a long time ago and loved it. Found the next one, Evolve and loved it as well. Just can't seem to find the next 2.

I love it when a book pulls me in, makes me laugh, causes me to care about the characters, surprises me, and leaves me wanting more. Outbound is just such a book.

Great plot. Great writing. Humorous, first person storytelling. At first I thought no one could be as gullible as Taiga, but as I read on I realized that all that indoctrination (brain-washing) can cause that. It caused all those people to drink poisoned kool-aid and people to believe those cult religions like the moonies, scientology, christianity (it was once a cult), so why not?

So read it and go outbound. Meet some aliens, some slobbery and some smart, sarcastic and hot.

Enjoy the humorous wit
