The USS Ptolemy should have arrived in the Eta Cassiopeia system over 200 years ago. As of yet, we’ve never received confirmation of their safe arrival even though it’s merely 20 light years away
The crew of the USS Cepheus has been given a very dangerous mission, but if they succeed, they will be granted their freedom on an Earth-like planet in the Eta Cassiopeia system.

I really loved this series. I'm writing this review after having read the first 3 books. Ani Maxima is a very relatable and interesting character. She is a broken, tortured, and loving child who has for the first time in 300 years discovered a family and a planet that needs her. She also happens to have supernatural powers that enables her to protect those she loves. It's enjoyable to watch her grow. You can't help but to love her and the others from the USS Cepheus

I wrote this book intending for it to be just a typical space opera mystery regarding a lost derelict ship from centuries ago. About a quarter of the way through it, I discovered some intriguing details about the character I was introducing that caused me to want to focus more on her. From that point forward, I discovered that this wasn't just going to be one novel, but most likely a series. With her skills and odd nature, I could have a lot of fun writing many more Ani Maxima novels

Not bad, not great

Had some real potential and some great character development, but then got bogged down in the oddest places. Too much time on some romance that should ya e been spent on plot development.

This was a blend of pretty much everything that you could want in a science fiction novel. The mystery inside the ship is nicely played out and I liked the theoretical concepts. Some romance as well as a clear beginning to a new series. Can't wait for future installments

I read this book in a single day because I got so wrapped up in this story and the relationships. I like how some of them couldn't break free from their jailhouse mentalities. Loved the unusual relationships between Sky, Gunnar, Ani, and Naia the most. These four make for quite a motley crew

Excellent read. I read the first 3 pages and was hooked. My wife had to beg me to put the book down and go to sleep at 2:00a because I wanted to finish it so bad. Well, I was not disappointed the next day when I finished as it was an awesome book and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I loved the characters and the way the plot formed. Scott is an excellent writer and this one will not let you down.

Scott's first novel, Mommy's Choice, was originally published in paperback under the pseudonym Scott Curtis. In under a year on the bookshelves, that novel won the National Christian Choice Book Award for romantic suspense. When Scott moved to a different publisher and started making his novels available to Kindle readers, he returned to his real name and reduced the prices to the absolute minimum ...more
