I really hope to see this author continue in this vein of writing in the future.
Now onto Fey.
Not really, Vince is a good guy with a little bit of Jack Reacher in him; he does the right thing, but he does it his way.
StarFire takes Vince's backstory from Fey and expands on it. The switching back and forth between Vince's interrogation by the Galactic Navy and the search mission they sent him on is written and paced perfectly. The amazing details (like how to talk without radios in the vacuum of space - or what happens if the gravity on a boarding ship doesn't match the gravity of the ship being boarded) that Mike Lee thinks of and incorporates into the book add tremendously to the story.
And if you thought the romantic friction between Vince and Lauren Callaway (Blondie) was well written in Fey, wait until you see the tension build between Vince and Lieutenant Linda Tillman.
Mike Lee has written yet another solid fast-reading book that grabs your attention and keeps it engaged until the satisfying conclusion. I will be reading this one again and can't wait for the next Mike Lee book.
The only other nitpick I will mention is the need for final editing. Like too many self-published novels, the author's spell-checker did not catch the misspellings that created other words.
I wasn't wild about the book's conclusion; the author would have been much better off taking the main character in his original direction rather than where he ended up, but that was the author's decision and I can't fault him for it. The reason I am commenting about this is that both the protagonist and the antagonists could have had a long career interacting with each other.
I will say that none of the conflicts were resolved satisfactorily. More thought and detail needed to put into the problems and how they were dealt with.
If this reads like I did not enjoy the novel, you would be incorrect. Starfire was both exciting and enjoyable, but with a bit more thought, it would have also been worthy of 5-stars.
I really love the e-books for just this reason--tripping across a new author that I might have missed noticing before.
