Firefly meets Mass Effect in this thrilling self-published debut!
When Rosemary Harper joins the crew of the Wayfarer, she isn't expecting much. The Wayfarer, a patched-up ship that's seen better days, offers her everything she could possibly want: a small, quiet spot to call home for a while, adventure in far-off corners of the galaxy, and distance from her troubled past.
But Rosemary gets more than she bargained for with the Wayfarer. The crew is a mishmash of species and personalities, from Sissix, the friendly reptillian pilot, to Kizzy and Jenks, the constantly sparring engineers who keep the ship running. Life onboard is chaotic but more or less peaceful - exactly what Rosemary wants.
Until the crew are offered the job of a lifetime: the chance to build a hyperspace tunnel to a distant planet. They'll earn enough money to live comfortably for years...if they survive the long trip through war-torn interstellar space without endangering any of the fragile alliances that keep the galaxy peaceful. But Rosemary isn't the only person onboard with secrets to hide, and the crew will soon discover that space may be vast, but spaceships are very small indeed.



"A joyous, optimistic space opera.... Although it isn't shy about tackling Big Questions, Planet is a heart-warming debut novel that will restore your faith in science fiction (specifically) and humanity (in general)." (
"One of the most enjoyable, brilliantly realised spacey SF novels I've read in ages." (James Smythe, author of The Echo)

Nice, average SF story

I kind of liked this story although it was nothing special, just your everyday space adventure.
What really irks me in this kind of story is the casual validation of racism whenever something about "you humans" or other species is being said, and it always makes me cringe a bit.
Otherwise fine and quite harmless.

Awesome world building

This is a really refreshing story and an awesome world to take place in. Don't expect too much action though. There is also not really a lot happening, but does it take a lot of big events to make a good story?
Though I often don't like female speakers (no sexism, just a personal preference), this one did quite a good job. Some voices could have been a little more distincted.
