I’ll preface by saying this: the other day I bought a pack of gum, and it cost me $1.39.

I can’t say it was money well spent, but I’m not complaining.

I bought this eBook for $.99—I’ve even seen it advertised for free.
At $.99, I consider Rogue Hunter: Gaia #1: Into the Abyss money well spent.

I recently purchased a Kindle, and I’ve been on a short story kick lately. I download mostly free stories, but I’ve read this author before, and wanted to read more of his work. Mr. Hendrickson also wrote Th

Rogue Hunter, a trilogy that has a story totaling between 50-60 pages.
I was looking for a nice pastime between reading the Watchmen and starting a fantasy or SF trilogy. I wanted something on a lighter note.
The first book was still acceptable, the second book made me question my decision to continue reading, and the third book made me regret it.
The series contains elements found in many other SF books, but there the authors take their time developing the story, using a couple of hundreds of page

Life is cheap in the far-future world of Rogue Hunter, Gaia #1. Hormonal impulses are the stuff of jokes as female protagonists conquer the opposition, only to fall prey to each other. Readers might wonder why a bounty hunter would sport “long golden hair” but hey, a girl needs her vanity. And the galaxy needs... something, but Zyra’s not too worried about that, as long as she gets paid.

The story ends abruptly at the end of an exciting battle sequence, reminiscent of Buck Rogers perhaps, or a fi
Interesting short space opera. Bounty hunter vs pirates. Quick and fun. Guards wearing lingerie? Lots of action.

Very short preview of what looks to be some engaging pulpy cheese.

Bounty hunter Zyra lands on a planet to recover something from pirate Molly Black. That's about it for synopsis, because the book is very short. It's more like a sneak peek for an upcoming novel than even a full fledged short story or novella, so keep this in mind.

However, it shows enough to realize why kind of book it will be: some straight out cheesy pulp action with plenty of fighting and beautiful girls. It gets marks for real

I know this is the first book in a trilogy, but as such, I expect there to be enough material to understand the basics of the story! In this first story, I was very confused my the different characters, aside from the main two (Zyra, Molly). The basic plot and understood it was that Molly had something and Zyra was going after her. This story had a lot of loose ends which were not described well enough to make sense. The action scene was written horribly, full of overly technical terminology and ...more
Into the Abyss by Kevis Hendrickson is a quick sci fi short story that is supposedly the first in the Rogue Hunter: Gaia series. I would view it more as a "serial" than a series, however; Into the Abyss was not really a stand-alone story at all. It was pretty well written, set up the characters and setting well in the short story framework (which is not often well done) and had great action, but there was no closure of any kind. I don't recommend reading this unless you already have the other tw ...more

i downloaded this awhile back and just now got to it. this is the first in a series i think and it starts in the middle of the action . the only thing i felt this author was missing is maybe a good editor but its okay there were not really that many mistakes. my only complaint was that he could have added a bit more and not ended so fast but i liked it and want to read the rest. the author also said he has another book int he series coming out so i need to catch up, lol.

This is action packed science fiction, unfortunately it's also poorly written.
I've never read any pulp fiction, mainly as it was published a fair bit before my time, but this is always how I've pictured it.
No substance to the story, cardboard cutouts for characters and cheap dialogue and action scenes.

I rather enjoyed this. Of course, the ending left me hooked so I have to continue, but that's a good thing. Gaia is a strong and unique character and I enjoyed the scenes with Molly. This was a perfect quick read for me. All too often I am struggling to find time to read and this was perfect because I could read it in one sitting.

Tried to read this and the other two parts, but mostly skimmed through them. I could not find the relationship between the two women, their battles or the main character's reactions to these battles convincing, and their final reconciliation was terribly rushed. However, now that Kevis has explained that this is a prequel I may try the full book as it does seem to get good reviews.
Very interesting. I like the concept of cyroprotectant when freezing someone to preserve life...never seen that done before. In this first book, Zyra arrives on an underwater pirate base and tries to capture a former pilot who has stolen something that belongs to the galaxy Alliance.

Very good for a free ebook. I really like Zyra and I thought the story was exciting. I'm excited to read the next 2 in the story.
