The story was good, and well-executed - pacing was just right. I was interested in the characters, which is all I need to keep me going! It's a great debut with few errors. I would have loved more backstory on all the young characters. Jack... I could have used more Jack. I'm a fan of Jack.

"A great read". The Corsican is a fun science fiction adventure reminiscent of Heinlein's early young adult fiction. The story is unique, taking place in a future that has much in common with humanity's past. The will to power and the desire for freedom clash in this exciting space adventure.

Born in Wyoming, Tina was forcibly exiled when she refused to learn the secrets of how to Wyom. Since then, she's been living as an outcast in Washington State, seeking refuge and a power outlet to call her own. She found herself attracted to the unusual plumage of artists and Goths, and this combination could possibly have been the foundation of her strange and powerful urges to write. Being a cr ...more
