“Great fun . . . Golden Age chic!” (Stephen Baxter)

Dark Run deserves to be this year’s breakout space opera.” (Andrew Liptak:

“…not so much a book review as a Grab-a-Copy-Now book recommendation…” (

“…if you’re looking for a Firefly-like tale, filled with characters like Damian Frey and the crew of the Ketty Jay, you won’t be disappointed with this one. A quick read, but an immensely entertaining one.” (

“…a story which rockets from drama to drama, leaving the reader breathless. At the end of the day, it’s a lot of fun, and as such, worth reading.” (

“it is wicked and fun and exciting and darkly joyous… And since Firefly comparisons do abound… while Whedon has a flair for writing badass woman, Brooks has taken things that elusive step further, surpassing Joss by giving his readers badass female characters who are also strong female characters; they have backstories, ranges of emotion, and the ability to stand entirely independently of the (also excellent and strong) male characters.” (
