it was amazing

Lost Solace is a brilliant read. Superbly-written, gripping, action-packed, with an absolutely kick-ass heroine to boot. Essentially, Opal is a futuristic 'treasure hunter' aided by a loyal and wry AI called Clarissa as they try to salvage something from a Lost Ship. The danger just keeps mounting as Opal faces aliens and Marines sent to apprehend her. What I particularly loved was how well we come to know Opal through her actions, not her thoughts, and for me, this is a sign of a writer who has really got to know their main character. Sci-fi fans will enjoy this a lot, but I'm not one of those and I loved it, too. It's as much about Opal internal journey as much as anything that happens out in space. I dare say this would make a great film.

Karl Drinkwater Many thanks, Amy. I wish there was a film, too! There is currently a sequel (Chasing Solace) and a spin-off novella (Helene). I hope to write a third book in the main series to round the arc out next year, fingers crossed ...
