Resurgence (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
0 chapters   —   updated Jul 26, 2019 07:09AM
Description: Set in the distant future, when interstellar commerce is commonplace, and the Unified Government is preoccupied defending the frontiers of charted space, unchecked acts of aggression threaten to upset the delicate trade routes that span the backwater corners of Beta Sector. When Kristin Glasco’s brother is murdered while investigating a series of mysterious vessel disappearances, she’s reluctantly drawn into a dangerous game of politics and piracy where she can’t trust anyone—especially her own crew of the Cobalt Rose.

A great read

An amazing, groundbreaking show turned into a novel. The action is steady, and most of the characters are relatable and enjoyable. Even the most annoying characters from the cartoon are given more interesting lives.
