Jonas Valent, the main character, is portrayed realistically, though the lifespan of humans has increased to the point where characters tend to be more well-rounded than our traditional world would allow. Randolph weaves in other characters and plots as the story sails along with barely a tremor, but all in a believable and compelling way. Best of all, he masterfully leaves plot threads dangling to tease the stories to come in future broadcasts!
If you are a fan of space shooters or space operas I highly recommend checking out Origins. It’s available as a free download from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords.
