The Cagliostro Chronicles Is a must read. The story writing is engaging and the character development is spot on. You don't have to be an avid science fiction reader to enjoy this book it appeals to fans of the genre and new comers alike. The book is not bogged down in technical jargon and flows as you read it. The story has a futuristic feel but doesn't seem to far fetched or over reaching. I cant wait for the next book to come out I will definitely be buying it! So grab a cup of coffee and curl up with The Cagliostro Chronicles you wont be sorry you did.

This book was a decent read, but not very long I finished it in one sitting of about 4 hours. Interesting story, and non stop action once it got started. Some of the characters seem a bit pointless as really the story only revolves around 2-3 of the five or so main characters, and the others are more supporting roles that are constantly there. Such as the security officer, how basically is told how to do any security or tactic related thing by the captain. It seems the security officers only real job is to pull off a few precision snapshots from time to time. The engineer is also the pilot which he does that more than anything engineering related during the book, that and be the incredible hulk. I found it a bit quirky in quite a few places either by phrase, action, or feasibility; like the space station jail cells that have metal and stone walls, or the hanger on the ship "equalizing pressure" with space instead of being a vacuum, or the three 40 ton nukes the size of a garbage can, stacked in the corner of an ammo closet without somehow falling through the floor of the ship (or how 40 tons fits in a garbage can sized area. Overall it is a decent read, if you don't mind 3 overly powered main characters saving the world almost single-handily, with unexplained technology, such as the experimental FTL engine/generator than needs no fuel, never breaks down even on its test flight and is faster than all the aliens ships that have had FTL for thousands of years. If your into hard science or even quasi sci then you will not enjoy the book, but if you want fast paced sci-fi action then you will probably enjoy it. I will most likely read the rest of the series as it is a good read for what it is.

The Cagliostro Chronicles is an unabashed hybrid space opera: part Heinleinesque romp; part pulp fiction; part classic comic tall tale, with a bit of E.E. Smith thrown in: rich-super-hero-inventor makes his own faster-than-light magnetic drive ship, thumbs his nose at dumb government and saves our bacon. The story reads more like a movie than a book, once it gets going, having told us what special powers and strengths are present in the crew of this spaceship. The action is very fast. The characters are larger-than-life, the style experimental. The author knows his strong suit, and plays to it: this maverick, intrepid crew gladdens his heart, and this shows in every line. Our hero seems to be the sole owner, or at least driving force, of a engineering firm bearing his name. This company can afford to do whatever he may decide, and do it better and cheaper that the vast military-industrial complex. Simple story, yes. But you find yourself caring that the protagonists succeed, at least in the book's terms. And they do. This is an unpretentious space adventure, bristling with the sort of weaponry and prototypes and stereotypes that many sci-fi fans have come to love.

One of the better written stories of the newer generation of space adventures. While some of the events were predictable, the majority of the story was excellent. I will be looking for additional stories from Mr. Angelo, Jr.
