Book Review-Trust & Treachery (Echoes of Sol Book 1)-Charissa Dufour

Wednesday, October 3, 2018

I definitely decided to leave my comfort zone when I decided to read this novel. I don't usually pick up this genre--kind of a Sci-Fi, Space Travel and futuristic all in one. What ever the genre is I'm glad I did. It definitely kept my attention. Enough so that I just picked up the second book in this 7 book series.

Try to imagine living in a time where you as a five year old could be indentured as a slave to pay off your father's debt--it makes me cringe. Little Bit, or Bit, as she prefers to be called watched herself be bartered in a poker game--and could say nothing about it! But then she really hadn't had much to say about what her life was like.

Reading how she came into her own-somewhat-amidst a bunch of rough men aboard her new owners spaceship was intriguing.

It ends with them getting to Mars, pirates attempting to board them and all else that occurred. --and I want to read what the new owner's Mom has to say about all this!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

When space freighter pilot Calen Macleef accidentally wins Larissa “Bit” Earnest in a lucky hand of poker, his main concern is what his gruff and uncompromising brother Jack will say about it. Jack Macleef is the captain of the ship in a world where space travel has only recently become the norm and space piracy abounds. Painful memories of prior abuse surface for Bit as she finds herself on a freighter full of rowdy, ungentlemanly merchant marines. Jack works to find a safe place for frightened Bit amongst the ungentlemanly crew, but good looks and innocent ways continually charm the men. With tension and danger running high, each begins to wonder: will they survive the pirates... and each other?

About the Author: (from Amazon)

My journey to becoming a writer began in 8th grade when I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and pulled from school to recover. During this time, I was left alone for hours on end and it was then that I discovered new friends within the pages of books. I also learned the blessing of creating my own friends by writing down the stories that plagued my lonely mind--as demented as that sounds. Therefore at the ripe age of fourteen, I wrote my first novel. It sucked! But I kept going and now I am an Indie Author with numerous books out. I never imagined that first horrible novel about a man who crash landed on his long-lost home world would turn into a lifelong passion.
I now live in Chicago, IL with my amazing husband and two rambunctious kittens, Groot and Rocket.
