"Eschbacher delivers a science fiction adventure with well-constructed characters and perils galore. I'm a sucker for a great villain, and Ghost Star has that in the sinister Mohk. This yarn has pluck and bops along at a delightful pace." --Brian Clopper, author, The Powers That Flee and Ghost Coast
"A solid sci-fi tale with heroes you care about, a richly developed alien civilization, and a villain you love to hate." --Keith Robinson, author, Island of Fog
"Ghost star is a cinematic gem waiting to be filmed. Roger Eschbacher gives us a fantastic space adventure with great characters and thrilling danger. It has a wry sense of humor as it delivers its terrifying and exhilarating tale of loyalty and revenge. Attention Hollywood, make this book into a movie!" --Tom Killeen, Fine Art and Special Effects Professional

Roger does a good job of bringing together a somewhat familiar plotline done by many others, but perhaps not as engaging or charming as his work. His science is easy, not Arthur C. Clarke or Asimov, or Crichton science for the genius minded or the string theory physicists, but easily entertained and understood. I look forward to more entertaining stories by Roger and hopefully with the setup for more with the intrepid crew of the Ghost Star.
I really liked the world building, although felt like the aliens perhaps weren't quite alien enough. (Maybe because I read a lot of science fiction, so tend to like my aliens *really* weird.) I also felt like the plot was maybe a bit simple.
I agree with another reviewer that this is probably a book in many ways better aimed at middle grades than adults (perhaps the reason I'm not a super huge fan). But it definitely makes for an entertaining, light read.
This book seemed designed for younger readers, with some of the characters a tad thin. Also, the familiar archetypes peopling this thriller might've been tweaked to separate them out from the usual space opera tropes of warrior women, clever robots, and evil-for-evil's-sake villians.
Nevertheless, the story's alien characters and locations are well-handled by the author who keeps his world accessible to the reader. In addition, there's action aplenty, a likable protagonist, droll humor and enough twists to keep the narrative speeding along. A fun, enjoyable read.
I received a copy of this book through the Kindle Scout program.
Good reading for a holiday vacation, or whether you wander among the cosmos ...or the neighborhood. Looking forward to more from Roger!
