Have you guys ever heard of this little show called Firefly?
Although the characters doesn't impressed me much, I'm happy to report that the plot have enough twists and turns to keep me interested enough to finish it. There are layers upon layers of secrets that the gang need to uncover starting with the mysterious death of the parents of the main protagonist and leader of the group; Jethro Seagrave. But Jeth certainly is nothing like Mal from Firefly. (Oh, god..I can't stop comparing the book with the show..sorry guys). And since Jeth is so desperate and nostalgic to earned money to buy back his dead parents' ship from his crime-boss employer, he is then forced to co-operate with a shady ITA (Interstellar Transport Authority) agent.
Now, I get Jeth's ulterior motive in being a sort of Robin Hood in space but his friends? Not so much. Maybe they're just that loyal to him or some really adventurous juvenile teens. And as the gang race through the galaxy they did uncover some really deep dark secrets about the ITA and more.
I will definitely read the next book in the series since I think we really need more YA books set in space and less of vampire stories. I really hope the story will get much better in the next instalment though since the characters certainly showed a lot of promise for more development. Here's to more space cowboys..I mean cool YA space opera!
