Derelict (Halcyone Space #1) review ☆ 103 ¿ Read the award winning story that started the Halcyone Space series When Rosalen Maldonado tinkers with the derelict freighter she's just hoping to prove she deserves a scholarship to University She certainly doesn't count on waking the ship's damaged AI or having three stowaways Micah RotherwoRead the award winning story that started the Halcyone Space series When Rosalen Maldonado tinkers with the derelict freighter she's just hoping to prove she deserves a scholarship to University She certainly doesn't count on waking the ship's damaged AI or having three stowaways Micah Rotherwood and brothers Jem and Barre Durbin along for the ride They all have their private reasons for hiding aboard and lives they are seeking to escape but if the accidental crew can'. LJ Cohen's DERELICT is a well written fast paced adventure The characters are diverse a real bonus in science fiction and well written and the plot and pacing are ideal for anyone who loves good science fictionI call this good science fiction in particular because the tech doesn't feel like a fake overlay on a story that could have happened anywhere This isn't something else shoehorned into a space or futuristic setting Cohen's world is fully built and carefully developed creating a natural realistic feel that puts her in my opinion among the great science fiction writers If you enjoy John Scalzi or Lynn Viehl you should be reading LJ Cohen too

summary ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ L.J. Cohen

Has been described as not the usual YA Nor is it the usual space opera While some of the characters are military they're not the heroes In the second book in fact it becomes pretty clear that the Commonwealth the interplanetary government is no benign Federation that there are serious cracks within society and history has been sanitised A diverse cast real conseuences to physical injury no easy fixes realistic character arcs Mike Reeves McMillan reviewer author blogge. This first book in Cohen's Halcyone series is a great start The main character Ro Maldonado is a prickly and talented young woman with an abusive father And let me tell you her father is a major jackass a criminal and an all round candidate for worst father ever However his bad parenting is almost eualed by Micah Rotherwood's dad a disgraced senator in league with Maldonado senior All of the despicable behavior is in spoiler territory so 'nuff saidWhen Ro discovers Micah in the crashed derelict ship she wants to move in as well She's fascinated by the 40 year old tech and wants badly to fix this abandoned ship for her own Micah has been using the space for botany experiments which involve growing some illegal plant materialJem Durbin is a brilliant kid who is a little bit infatuated with Ro and eagerly takes on projects to help her revive the Halcyone His brother Barre is a genius in a completely different way involving music but has a bit of a drug habit When Jem finds Barre unconscious he asks Ro to hack the medical system to get rid of any evidence of drugs in Barre's system As soon as he can get his brother up and moving he takes him to the Halcyone to hide out from their parents Jem knows Barre will be sent to rehab if he's found so off they go to join Ro and Micah on the derelict shipOkay four brilliant teens messing about with an old ship What could go wrong Plenty is barely sufficient to cover itOverall this is a great setup for the series as we learn about the main actors in the series books to come there are three in the series as I'm writing this so hurry up and get started nowThis is a strong opening to an entertaining series which is not all fluffy YA kid stuff There is plenty of tech here to satisfy the hardcore Science Fiction fan Highly recommended I'll definitely be hitting the other books in the series soon
