Fallen Empire - Book #5
by Lindsay Buroker
Two words: Space. Dinosaurs.
Throw in some mafia, food-themed spaceships (with giant donuts on the side!), and giant mushroom trees, and you've got an amazing adventure with Captain Alisa Marchenko and her crew! The story follows along with Alisa's ongoing mission to track down her missing daughter, only to take another detour to a strange moon. It doesn't take long for the crew to find trouble, including the security chief getting kidnapped. The irony of the security chief needing rescue is hilarious, not to mention Mica's never-ending pessimism.
The action never stops on this one, and Alisa and her crew are getting to be as fully fleshed out and fascinating as the Emperor's Edge team. Two thumbs up!
