4.0 out of 5 stars Space travel meets the old west January 18, 2012

Very engaging story of good guys and bad guys in the new old west. The book is short but does a good job of hooking the reader on the plot and characters and leaves you wanting more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ready for Sci Fi TV Series January 1, 2012
By Metella
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a hot, quick moving space adventure.

The swagger of John Wayne behind a ship-flying Marshall - out for justice at any price. It has the legit feel of the Old West without being sappy or feeling forced.

Although the entire story line and character set is vastly different, it has the feeling of Firefly - the Sci Fi series, and I think this would make just as good a TV series; and we are really about due for a new space series.

There is room to go both into the past and into the future with these characters - so I hope there are more installments ....

I look forward to a whole series of Heck Thomas ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Science Fiction with an Old West Twist April 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From the very start The Centaurus Legacy caught my attention, sucking me into the well written science novel that added elements of the Old West to create a uniquely entertaining story. Tom Bielawski brings a talent for imaginative storytelling t the forefront as he weaves a tale about a lawman who finds himself on the wrong side of the law; facing countless enemies and an uphill battle as a mafioso frames him for some truly heinous crimes, Marshal Heck Thomas must right the wrongs done to him when his life and many others hangs in the balance. The author skillfully winds the reader up with suspenseful action, emotionally charged drama, twisty mysteries and a clear aim to entertain the reader. From start to finish this was fun, exciting, imaginative and well worth the read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different kind of Sc-Fi July 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a wild and fun book. It is a different sci-fi style but it definitely works. The many characters were most intriguing and complimented each other well. This book is constantly holding your attention with all of the action and battles. The friendships are pushed to the limit and it makes the story line hard to stop reading. It is very well written and is fun to read. Expect the unexpected. I am a big fan of Tom Bielawski and I am enticed by his vivid imagination and his way of pulling the reader right into the book. I definitely recommend this book to all. It is a different and exciting adventure.

The characters are transparent and leave no room for the imagination. The plot is boilerplate and boring.
