If I didn't care for Friends in High Places as much as the other works of Marquette's I've read -- at least early on -- that only means it gets 4 stars instead of 5. Still quite enjoyable and certainly well worth reading.

Both main characters are extremely likeable, and I especially appreciated the contrast between them. Torri's sort of a female Han Solo, something of a "scoundrel" (for those of you who remember The Empire Strikes Back) though she's a helluva a lot smarter than he is; Kai's a lo
Action, intrigue, deception, smart women in charge and vehicles that move at warp speed! A book can't go wrong with that type of combination and Andi Marquette has all that and more as she takes the reader on a wild adventure in Friends in High Places: the first in the Far Seek Chronicles. Torri Rendengo is the leader of her small band of outlaws and her formal military training and her skills as a gambler help navigate her through the abusive powers of the coalition she tries to deceive at ever ...more

This is the book that got me hooked on This author's stuff. Easy to read and hard to put dow, just the way I like them! I instantly fell in love with Torri and Kai and instantly gobbled down book 2 after devouring this. Cannot wait for the third!
I thought it was quite fun, especially how the two protagonists interacted. Considering how little they did cross paths.
Enjoyable, capably-written space-based fiction.

Andi Marquette was born in New Mexico and grew up in Colorado. She completed a couple of academic degrees in anthropology and returned to New Mexico, where she decided a doctorate in history was somehow a good idea. She completed it before realizing that maybe she should have joined the circus, or at least a traveling Gypsy troupe. Oh, well. She fell into editing sometime around 1993 and has been ...more
