Staff Reviews


 Starflight by Melissa Landers. (age 14 & up, I'm way up there and I loved it) WOW, outer space, a dilapidated space ship, cast of kooky characters, and throw in some bad guys, and a touch of love and you have the beginning of a new wonderful series.

— Della McNamara

Description


Solara Brooks needs a fresh start, someplace where nobody cares about the engine grease beneath her fingernails or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. The outer realm may be lawless, but it's not like the law has ever been on her side.
Still, off-world travel doesn't come cheap; Solara is left with no choice but to indenture herself in exchange for passage to the outer realm. She just wishes it could have been to anyone besides Doran Spaulding, the rich, pretty-boy quarterback who made her life miserable in school.
The tables suddenly turn when Doran is framed for conspiracy on Earth, and Solara cons him into playing the role of her servant on board the Banshee, a ship manned by an eccentric crew with their own secrets. Given the price on both Doran and Solara's heads, it may just be the safest place in the universe.
It's been a long time since Solara has believed in anyone, and Doran is the last person she expected to trust. But when the Banshee's dangerous enemies catch up with them, Solara and Doran must come together to protect the ship that has become their home-and the eccentric crew that feels like family.

About the Author


Melissa Landers is a former teacher who left the classroom to pursue other worlds. A proud sci-fi geek, she isn't afraid to wear her Princess Leia costume in public―just ask her embarrassed kids. She lives outside Cincinnati in the small town of Milford Ohio, where she writes romantic space adventures for teens and the young at heart.

Praise For…


"Teens will be bracing themselves during the swashbuckling space pirate action scenes... A great choice for fans of raw sci-fi action, reminiscent of the lawlessness presented in the television series Firefly."

School Library Journal

"This is a lively tale of romance, space pirates, conspiracy, and made (as opposed to genetic) families. Over the course of the book, all the characters round out nicely, as does the romance... Landers has a firm hand on the plot, which includes a rousing fight scene or two, as well as a nifty twist at the end."
