A Worthy Trek Across The Universe: A Humanitarian voyage to a distant galaxy to save the troubled planet, Dremiks, is the primary mission for the crew of humanity’s first inter-stellar transport, the Hudson, captained by the morally upstanding and by-the-book Brett Hill.
Maggie O’Connell, maverick pilot and daughter of the Admiral is his second in command. Can she shake off her father’s influence and escape her difficult past?
With the captain’s duplicitous brother, Vice Chancellor Ryan Hill, leading the civilian crew due to settle on Dremiks, their journey is far from problem-free. The Captain and his crew become suspicious that the mission may not be all it seems.
I loved the detailed and relaxed pace of Dremiks by Cassandra Davis, making for an ideal read for a lazy evening in.
The interplay between the very believable and varied characters was compelling although I did get a little lost due to name switching from first name to surname, making it hard to tell who was speaking.
There were a couple of instances where there was information repetition but this didn’t seem to distract me from the main plot.
I thought this was a very enjoyable read with an excellent twist at the end well deserving of one of the top five positions of Best Indie Books of 2012. I look forward to a sequel and indeed more books from this promising sci-fi author.
