In the near future, humans have gone beyond simple space travel. By the year 4054, multiple solar systems are inhabited, and taking a spaceship is as commonplace as taking an aeroplane.

Unfortunately, not everything about the future is so advanced. The central planets, led by Earth, have risen high at the expense of cheap labour on distant worlds. Dissent is widespread and

Review to follow 👍

And here is the review.
Firstly many thanks to Rebecca for allowing me the opportunity to read her latest novella.

Right, let's start with why I have only given this four stars. The story is really interesting and enticing, and it dashes along at a fair old pace, the people are interesting and you want to get to know more about them, the adversaries are interesting and you want them to be blasted to Kingdom Come, but despite the fact that I knew this was a "long short" story or

Talk about being drawn into an authors world! DUST AND LIGHTNING by Rebecca Crunden lifts readers out of the 21st century and beams us into the year 4054 after new solar systems have been discovered, inhabited and travel between them is no more amazing than flying across an ocean.

Sadly, with progress and expansion come the abuse of power, the greed for the almighty dollar and the uprising of the workers, as well as the corporate retaliation, from imprisonment to unexplained disappearances. One

Of all the outcomes he had imagined upon rescuing his brother, waging war against the most powerful man in the universe certainly hadnt been one of them.

Ames receives word that his brother Callum was killed during a prison riot en route to planet Kilnin, where he was unfairly sentenced to a labor camp by the Democratic Planetary Alliance. Troubled by the devastating news, Ames departs Earth on a hunt for the truth, venturing into space for the first time. Unfortunately this is no easy feat and

Dust & Lightning by Rebecca Crunden is a smashing sci-fi novella that combines elements of suspense, mystery, adventure and action, making it a complete package deal for all sci-fi lovers. This is my 6th book by the author and by now I have become so familiar with author Rebecca's writing that it feels like visiting an old friend to read her books. I don't usually go for the same authors unless I like their work which only goes on to say that Rebecca's stories are always worth it. This one ...more

Once again Ms. Crunden did not disappoint! Excellent world building takes you right into the year 4054. Ames is trying to save his brother whom has been sentenced to a murder he did not commit and has since seems to have disappeared.

I thoroughly enjoy this author's writing style as she draws you in to each and every book. I highly recommend you to read her works. I look forward to more from her.


I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
