He needs a payday. He’ll settle for payback.

Betrayed and left to rot on the edges of the galaxy, Caspian Robeaux is deep in debt and stuck flying courier missions in an old rustbucket he can barely keep afloat. His only friends are an annoying robot named Box and a bottle of booze.

It’s a far cry from his once-promising military career, but Cas stopped caring a long time ag

“This was it. There was no more going back.”
Eric Warren has once again given us a future that dances along a razor’s edge – entertaining, thrilling, humbling… and hopeful, despite the threat, despite the danger, despite the sacrifice. To live in uncertainty and doubt is a painful burden to carry, as Caspian, the protagonist discovers. The characters are very down to earth, giving a very realistic view of human turmoil and emotions. Treachery and deceit abound, made me feel the impotency and rage

I would give this 3.5 stars if I could. I liked the general overall story and will likely continue with the series, but there were a lot of little things that bothered me about the book.

I like a story to be nuanced, the characters to have an arc, for something to really stretch the characters limits. This story had some of those moments, but they often felt surface level. The guy is a drunk, but the only affect that really had on him is it gave him a headache the next day and have an awkward int

Disclaimer: I have voluntarily reviewed this book after receiving a free copy from Hidden Gem Books.

The review may contain very minor spoilers!

I have to admit – despite my love for the sci-fi genre and all the opportunities it presents, I haven’t actually read many books that were straight out space operas with spaceships, aliens and grand intergalactic adventures. I have, obviously, consumed other media from the genre but the books for some reason rarely found their way to my shelf. Because of

I enjoyed the introductory short story Caspian's Gambit and I started this book with high hopes, unfortunately after only a few pages I was beginning to have doubts.
I eventually got to chapter ten and was ready to give up, I just couldn’t believe the idiotic decision to return to the Coalition. They had wrongly imprisoned Cas, then conned him into believing he was getting parole only to send him to a death camp. Why would he suddenly decide to return? He didn't even bother to find out who was

No Excuses, Read This Book

If you fancy an exciting trip through space, look no further, you’ve found your next read!

Caspian’s Fortune is a fast paced, never dull adventure. Each scene is paced extraordinarily well, moving from one scene to the next with ease. Eric spends just the right amount of time on his characters and their intricacies. He is great at world building, too. I didn’t feel he dumped too much information on me, but at the same time, he created a complex universe rich with history

He thought that life was dead, unfortunately he was wrong. When his contract is bought by an Coalition officer, he is pulled back into their world of betrayal and secrets.

This is not a book that I would normally pick up. If my selection wasn't random, then I probably wouldn't have chosen this and when I found out that I had to read this I was pretty hesitant and was actively looking for ways to not read this. Sci-Fi isn't really my choice of genre. The only sci-fi series I've read is the Across the Universe Trilogy by Beth Revis. I loved the series. Come to think of it, I probably shouldn't have doubted myself on whether or not I'd like sci-fi because I've read t ...more

Once again, I have the fortunate experience to star a brand new series with a brand new author. I believe this “Infinity’s Edge” sereies is going to be a good one. It is something of a military science fiction story, although the main character is not actually in the military at the start. No, he’s kind of a hired cargo hauler, hauling stuff that maybe he shouldn’t, but he’s not one to question what his current boss wants hauled.

Caspian Robeaux, a unique name for a very main character, is not ha

Caspian’s Fortune – Eric Warren

So, I picked this book up on a website that offers free books for a review and seeing as I am loving writing reviews, I thought I would give it go. This appealed instantly because of its space theme and the blurb alluded to a book that was probably funny as well as exciting.

What I did not expect was to find my next series to read(which is an issue as I’m in the middle of at least three series at the moment), but I had bought the second book in the series – Tempest

This is a book you need to get. Fun. Original in every sense of how it makes you engrossed into a new world. The influences from Star Trek are there. But you know what? So what? I've been reading too much hardcore sci-fi that this is a pleasant exchange. One, I love stories about ex-rogues getting their former positions back. Two, I felt that this story is a mixture of the best parts of Orville and Star Trek combined.

A fun short read!

This novel is about an outlaw named Cas and his robot pilot and best friend Box. Cas is a courier and a drunk. The first because he has no other option at the moment, the second because he wants to forget his past. When he meets Evie, a pilot from the same Coalition that forced him into exile, he isn't happy to say the least. He gets even angrier when he discovers she has been ordered to bring him back. She may not know why he was living so far from home but he knows that the C

**I was provided a published electronic copy by the author through BookSirens in exchange for honest review.**

Eric Warren provides a science fiction novel full of all things great about the genre with Caspian's Fortune. We follow Captain Caspian Robeaux, who may or may not have committed war crimes resulting in defection from the Coalition where he served as an engineer. Cas, however, is more than your common criminal and has valuable information about corruption within the Coalition. Enter Lieu

I really enjoyed this action-packed adventure. Full of brilliant believable players...and Box. What a full-blown character he is, so funny.

After the teasing in 'Caspian's Gambit' (0.5), we finally find out exactly why Cas was jailed. No wonder he is so peed off with the Coalition! This book brings everything to the fore. Emotions run high as Cas has to deal with his current feelings, plus the powerful hate-filled ones he has carried within him for a long time.

This is a fantastic story which kept

When we first meet Caspian Robeaux, his life is considered quite rough. He is on the run, he doesn't have much money, and his ship is falling apart. As the story unfolds we begin to see how he can possibly turn his life around and redeem himself.
Cas was in the very organization that he is on the run from and on his path gets trapped in another hard situation. When we meet Cas, he is very closed off and does not want a part of either organization. He just wants to take his ship and his robot, Bo

Why do people write about drunkards?

This is a story about an incompetent engineer who while wrongly convicted of mutiny, deserts to wild space and climbs into a bottle and keeps running.... And running, oh and runs again. When he finally does something about the situation, it turns into a suicide run that shouldn't have worked..... The Authors geasp of space propulsion and physics is insanely wildly wrong and contradicts itself several times during the suicide run.... Hopefully in the sequal he

Awesome! The story was well written and kept me engaged. The narrator did a good job used his voice to full effect. You have a guy who can’t catch a break, who tries to make up for things he was supposed to have done but didn’t. Gets arrested taken to someone who hates him and shares a secret. The mission of finding a missing ship that could destroy lives, and someone else who is a slaver wanting the same ship. This book is action packed from start to finish and I loved every minuet of it.

I WANT BOOK 2!! NOW!!
What a fantastic adventure!
The cast of characters are wonderful! Their interactions completely relatable and Box is such a funny, sarcastic, complex character- I dare you not to fall for his charm!
The journey we are taken on is filled with action, suspense, laughter, doubt, sacrifice, betrayal and a overwhelming sense of loyalty. I cannot wait for the next in this series- Please tell me it won’t be a long wait!

Caspian's Fortune is a story of empires, crime gangs and a disgraced captain stuck in the middle of it all.

Cas and his entertaining robot Box get forced to find a missing spaceship with a terrible secret.

Decent space opera set in an interesting universe with well written characters. Easy, well-paced read setting up what should be an entertaining series. I look forward to the next one.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Humorous Action Novel

Well pace novel written as a serious space adventure that contains good humor. Love the robot character. The main power seems to be modeled after the original Star Trek’s Federation which is far preferable than main powers in many of today’s sci fi novels.

This is one of those brilliant stories that you just can’t put down, and you find yourself looking for excuses to go and pick the book up at any opportunity that you can. It is a combination Military Sci-fi/Space Opera, with former Lt. Commander in the Sovereign Coalition, Caspian Robeaux flying courier missions with his friend, and pilot, a rather quirky robot with an addiction for bad holodramas, called Box.
Cas once had a promising career with the Coalition Navy, but something happened and he

A space adventure with an unlikely captain. You start out not knowing if will like this guy that is the captain or not as he does have a rough side. As the story unfolds you find out his back story and why he does some of the things he does and start to understand him more. By the end of the book i was cheering for him. Then throw in Box, who is the Robot with him. Box is hilarious and i would want him around even after a while i might regret that decision. I started out the story and the next t ...more

Caspian Robeaux is barely making ends meet on the fringes of the known Galaxy - all he wants to do is find out who betrayed him and why - that is when he finds his way out of a bottle .
When he is offered a big payday for a job he looks only at the money on offer - perhaps he should have looked into who was willing to pay so much to one such as he .
