Gel looks like a Human teenage girl who somehow has her own spaceship and courier business.

But the truth is she's an alien who only appears to be human and she has mad powers of teleportation that allow her to move people or objects to most any place she's ever been. There's just one hitch, her own people don't trust her and have put her on probation. Can she run her busin

Gel is just starting her courier service and she's already in trouble.
She was just trying to get together some funds at the casino and the Plenum took exception to that.
So, she's on probation with them.
Meanwhile, she has her first job to accomplish. A king's body has disappeared and must be brought back, asap.
How did she get this job? She was highly recommended for it by a being that the Plenum would collectively clutch it's pearls and faint if they knew she had even talked to.

The Start of a Fun Series

This is a review based on the book I purchased, not the rough draft I received as an unpaid beta reader. The story is just adorable. The main character, Gel, is a clever, talented, witty , and unique young female who manages to solve a life-threatening conundrum for both her client and herself. I look forward to her psychic and creative development in the books to come. I totally enjoyed this one.

Really good book and fun universe

I have seen many books set in this universe, and if they are all as fun to read as this one, I will have to get all of them. The main character was interesting and got into all sorts of fun situations, and the story set this up to look like it could be a really fun series as well. I recommend this book.

Great, quirky sci fi

The world building is awesome, the aliens are believable and fantastic, and I loved seeing Gel again. Best of all is the lack of major violence and death, because there is too much of that in a lot of current sci fi books, as well as in real life. Ace is a wonderful escape. I'm looking forward to reading book 2.

Excellent first in series

A good start to this spin off series to Schoen’s Amazing Conroy series. Fun and quirky characters, strange premises, and good humor. You should enjoy it.

I'm still forming my thoughts on this book (and the series as it progresses), and the worldbuilding therein, but what I am sure of in this moment is that I enjoyed it enough to keep going. I was looking for a planet-hopping adventure story of a sort that I actually find hard to get my hands on anymore and this delivered. ...more
