More About the Author

Andi Marquette was born in New Mexico and grew up in Colorado. She completed a couple of academic degrees in anthropology and returned to New Mexico, where she decided a doctorate in history was somehow a good idea. She completed it before realizing that maybe she should have joined the circus, or at least a traveling Gypsy troupe. Oh, well. She fell into editing sometime around 1993 and has been obsessed with words ever since, which may or may not be a good thing. She currently resides in Colorado, where she edits, writes, and cultivates a strange obsession with New Mexico chile.

Here's hoping Marquette keeps the story going.
K. Johnson
The story is cohesive and easy to follow, and it's loaded with tension and drama without being cheesy. the plot is well thought out and the drama is gripping.
Book Lover
Marquette uses the classic tropes of space opera and romance fiction to create a lively, entertaining, and very readable novel.

The story of two women from different backgrounds who at one time shared everything growing and learning at the "Academy". But the political arena of space makes them choose between duty and what is "right".
One becomes a successful officer for the Empire. The other a smuggler and pirate.
Sounds like Star Wars right? Ah maybe a little of the same loose theme but certainly not the same.
If you like rogue space smugglers and a women in uniform you will like this tale. I did. Of course I am also a Stars Wars nut.
The writing was pretty good. Maybe could have better editing.
Would love to find out what happens next in the series.

I've never read anything by Andi Marquette, but I certainly hope to do so again in the very near future. Only a sometimes fan of science-fiction settings, I found this book to be quite good, albeit short. Marquette brings us a complex love story between the perceived good and bad of society.

Torri is an outlaw who lives under the proverbial radar. Kai is a rising military leader with the coalition. They were roommates at the academy, but never actied on their mutual, unspoken attraction. That held true until they unexpectedly meet up again in one of the coalition colonies. Both risk it all for one night of passion.

Some time later they cross paths again while Kai is monitoring a highsecurity operation and Torri is planning to make an illegal withdrawal. Working together, Kai begins to prove to Torri that she is loyal. Torri starts learning that Kai can be trusted. Then... the book ends. Although it is set up very nicely for a sequel, it certainly left this reader looking for more.

Bottom Line - Great start. Here's hoping Marquette keeps the story going.

Marquette uses the classic tropes of space opera and romance fiction to create a lively, entertaining, and very readable novel. The characters have more depth and complexity than most, and the love story is compelling and believable. The world-building is nicely handled, without too much "as you know, Bob"-ing. Strong pacing and plenty of action make *Friends in High Places* a really pleasant way to spend an evening. I'm looking forward to the sequels!

Format: Paperback
I'm not a sci-fi reader. It's just not my thing. But I enjoyed Friends in High Places. It had that futuristic, other-world quality to it that is required of sci-fi, but it didn't ask me to give up my reality altogether or try to make me believe in too much weirdness. In my humble, non-sci-fi opinion, it had just enough of what spec fic is about without going over the top.

The story is cohesive and easy to follow, and it's loaded with tension and drama without being cheesy. the plot is well thought out and the drama is gripping. The personal relationships in the story reflect so much of what goes on in real life--attraction, love, admiration, sorrow, and frustration. For Torri and Kai, the main characters, being together is almost impossible because of their situations/positions in life. And I, as a reader, felt their sadness and hesitation and desire to be with one another.

And, in the end, don't we all wish we had friends in high places? I know I do.
