About the Author
I began composing science fiction when I was about nine - my daydreams. An Army recruiting poster with a "true" spaceship against a starry backdrop stirred my soul. From then on I told myself stories focused on outer space. Over the years I read every piece of science fiction I could: Heinlein, Asimov, Clarke. Eventually Poul Anderson became my guiding light. I suspect that one of his short stories, "A Live Coward," inspired Peacemaker, in which wits and daring are more important than fighting ability. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The only annoying thing that I desparately wanted to know about was, The Event. It was mentioned several times with regards to Earth, but the author never went into detail - I only hope the author might do a prequel book about The Event so I don't have to wonder what it was for the rest of my life, lol. Overall, this was a superb book that was very exciting and I loved the main character's smart and intelligent resourcefulness and I am glad he got the girl in the end - I am, afterall, a sucker for happy endings :)
The setting of the story is on planet during a revolution or at least civil unrest. The local authorities are handling the bulk of the police work and the imperials investigating are mostly spy types. The hero is a navy guy thrown into the conflict when his shuttle is disabled.
I almost never buy an unknown author with a $9.99 book price, but it was my birthday. Compared to similar genre books at $2.99, its over priced for the quality. No regrets in purchasing the novel; but, doubt I'd purchase another of his books at this price point.
- After the Air Force, Sonny worked as a computer scientist for Hughes Tools. It's only now that he's found time to return to his true love - science fiction.
- Obviously I'm biased, but I really enjoyed "Peacemaker," Sonny's first book -- and hope that he keeps turning them out. Action, and twists, begin on page one and keep coming till the end. Mixed in with a hero with whom one can truly identify, lots of clever characters otherwise and a really nice love story. For what more could one ask from a really good science fiction novel? (Though actually, I wish it had some pictures...)
It reads well. I has loss, love, adventure, discovery and success with the sheriff getting the girl. Nothing is well developed but you get a sense of what could be. It was an easy, comfortable read that meandered along safely with few twists.
Is it worth the current $9.99 price? No way. What is it worth? $2.99 or less given other choices.
At the beginning of the story, the author's words read like an old Dragnet script. Just the facts delivered in terse dialogue. As the story progressed, however, it seems that Mr. Savage grew into the story providing more descriptive scenes and human dialogue. The story became much more readable and enjoyable.
I like complex stories where, in the end, all the loose ends are tied up in a nice neat package. This was a very satisfying read and I hated to see it end.
Well done, Gordon Savage!
