A riptide of excitement, it totally swept me away!
Dominic Dulley's Shattermoon is big screen space opera at its most entertaining. With a welcome hint of an updated Stainless Steel Rat, Orry Kent makes for an engaging and savvy protagonist. A very impressive debut novel!

Reading Shattermoon made me laugh out loud and had me at the edge of my seat on many occasions. It reminded me a little of Firefly, Farscape and Star Trek The Next Generation, all of which I loved.
The book is quite a ride and certainly isn't boring! If you are a fan of action-packed Space Operas with kickass female heroines then I have to say that this book will definitely be your thing and you should check it out
Shattermoon is such a refreshing read. This is epic space opera that has a 1950s cinema serial quality to it, peopled by characters you give a damn about, worlds that feel as real as your daily commute (but obviously far more exotic and yet grounded) and a story that is so engrossing that reaching the end of it is akin to feeling like someone has unceremoniously slammed on the brakes and stopped a runaway tale that you could have happily stayed involved in forever
As a bit of entertaining space opera I thoroughly enjoyed my breakneck travel through Dulley's new universe
Shattermoon is a non-stop, action-packed space opera that's full of entertainment and all of the classic ingredients of adventure you might want. On the surface it's a regular mix of bandits, smugglers and imperial navy ships with a sassy heroine, but it quickly takes on a character and charm of its own
