Book Description

Top 5 Finalist, KBR "Best Indie Books of 2012"

"Dremiks" is a story of adventure and intrigue set on humanity's first inter-stellar transport. The stated mission for the crew and colonists of the Hudson is to travel across the universe and save the doomed planet of Dremiks. During their seven month journey, though, they learn that human beings have not fundamentally changed--jealousy and greed are still powerfully motivating characteristics.

The characters of "Dremiks" are surrounded by shifting loyalties, saboteurs, deceitful aliens, and all of the dangers of space travel. Friendships evolve, relationships unravel, and there's still a planet to be saved. This is the space-opera that will suck you in and keep you up late at night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar Debut from Cassandra Davis April 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved Dremiks. I want to get that out of the way now because it's all I've been saying for almost a week. This is apparently Cassandra Davis's debut novel, and it's a good one.

There are spaceships. There are bombs. There's aliens. And conspiracies, power plays, deception and saboteurs...There's even chocolate.

But first, there's a treaty.

Humans and Dremikians have worked out an agreement for humans to begin settling on the planet of Dremiks, which is now inhospitable to the Dremikians. All they have to do in exchange? Save the planet from destruction.

And if you think that's easier said than done, first they have to get there.

There are a lot of characters aboard the Hudson space shuttle, and each of them have their own motivations. The only way to find out who knows what, and what side everyone falls on is to keep reading.

That's the easy part. I could not stop reading this book. The mystery of what exactly was going on was compelling, but even more so, I loved the characters.

Maggie O'Connell, despite her reputation in the story, is a very easy character to like. Her interactions with Captain Hill were especially great -- the two of them have great chemistry -- but at every moment, Commander O'Connell is doing her best, and you can't help but root for her.

There are loads of other characters, and I really hope that Cassandra Davis plans on writing more books in this world, because I'd love to know what happens to the ones who survived the end. There's definitely room for more of this story to be told, and I want to read it.

(Disclaimer/Disclosure: I received a copy of the book from the author to review, however complimentary copies do not guarantee that I will review the book, and do not sway my opinion on the story.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining with great cast of characters March 20, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Full Disclosure: I know the author. I really enjoyed the book. It was very entertaining. She did a great job of weaving the future world and its trappings. Created great aliens. The cast of characters were wonderful and relatable. I am hoping for a sequel already! It was a very fast read and compelling; a fair amount of action, too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun space read March 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
As a first time author, Cassandra Davis has presented her readers with a dramatic and delightful space opera filled with intriguing characters that keep you wanting to learn more about their pasts and what their futures will hold. Her plot -- a deep space exploration -- keeps you reading and never leaves you wanting for surprises. Overall, a nice entry into the world of writing that will keep even those who don't love science fiction involved in the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing Science Fiction April 10, 2012
Format:Paperback
I couldn't stop reading this amazing science fiction story. The concept is intriguing, the characters are fully developed and delightfully imperfect, and the plot surprises keep coming. The many details about the ship and its journey and about the aliens and their world were well thought out and fascinating, although they slowed the pace occasionally. If you liked Stephanie Meyer's HOST, try Dremiks. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, fun read. May 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed Dremiks. Reading this, it was apparent to me Cassandra had some sort of military background as the characters and dynamics for the officers and crew felt very real to me. (I found out later she was an army brat) That gripped me and made their adventures that much more interesting. The(earth)tech also felt real, being believable without needing hard science to explain.
The mystery and intrigues kept me cursing the interruptions that made me put the book down, and snatch it right back up as soon as I could to find out what was going on.
The only complaints I had with it was some of the antagonists seemed two-dimensional, and the foreshadowing was occasionally heavy handed.

All in all, a great read, especially impressive as a debut! I'd love to visit this universe and characters again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific book by a new author April 28, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just finished a terrific book by a new author. My house needs cleaning, my lawn mowing but I've had a great deal of fun the last few days with my nose in this book. Best scene hands down, the foot washing. I was laughing out loud!

3.0 out of 5 stars Military romance with suspense February 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I bring the romance up front, unlike the author, who doesn't bring it up until the end. What else comes up near the end? A new "character" to tie up the mystery of who "dunnit." I have to say I thought it was a bit of a cheap shot.
My other issue . . . Humankind's first interstellar space trip, made possible by a space traveling species, one of whom accompanies the humans, falls prey to sabotage on their way to the alien's home world. Over and over. Never once is the alien questioned. In fact, he disappears from the bulk of the the novel. When finally questioned near the end, he is a wealth of information. So convenient for the author, so frustrating for me.
Apart from the above issues, the author is very knowlegable of military hierarchy and brings us a strong female lead. A great first try for a debut, even though I had big issues with the the way the plot unfolded.

More About the Author

Cassandra Davis (Amy to her friends and family) was raised an army brat: constantly traveling, making new friends every four years, and surrounded by an unique military culture. In the seventh grade, she complained to her English teacher that she'd read every fiction book in the library. The teacher handed Cassandra a blank notebook and told her to write her own stories.

After working as a US Senate aide for four years, Mrs. Davis became a stay-at-home mom and author. She now lives outside Seattle with her husband and two sons.
