    This review originally appeared on Invincible Love of Reading, under Kurt's Frontier.

    Ishmael Horatio Wang returns. In the first three books, Ishmael Wang begins as an orphan who takes a birth on a solar clipper because he has no where else to go. He learns the ropes and develops his instincts. Now he learns what it really feels like at the top of the ship’s hierarchy.




    After one last an exciting run as first mate of the William Tinker, where they salvage a ship where the crew has all perished due to skimping on safety, life begins to get very interesting. He passes the test for his master’s license, and is offered his first command, the SC Agamemnon. The reputation of the ship isn’t good, and it’s moral is worse. Adding to his complications, he has marital problems at home.




    However, he has solved ship problems before, including on the William Tinker. However, on a ship where officers actually outnumber crew, this could be a tall order, and captains aren’t infallible. When they take a cargo on a tight schedule and significant challenges, will he choose a reckless risk to get it delivered on time, or will he swallow the loss and safeguard his crew?




    Review:
    Nathan Lowell doesn’t write about heroic soldiers or beings with super powers. His heroes aren’t even trying to save humanity. Mr. Lowell takes us on a tour of the life of ordinary people trying to make an honest living. In many respects, it is refreshing. Nathan Lowell makes the life of an ordinary, hard working spacer interesting.




    Like the rest of his novels, Captain’s share is well written, and the tale is well told. The dialog can be quirky but believable for a crew that has to be in close quarters for months at a time. Science fiction fans will find Captain’s Share an interesting change of pace. People who aren’t science fiction fans will also find it enjoyable.

    More excellent story telling from Lowell

    The thing about these books is their simplicity. It's about a guy who is actually and for real trying to be a grown up. Lowell goes to that strange land of science fiction so rarely visited: what if we actually did the right thing? what would happen? I can affirm that lessons take from these books DO work in real life and I'm proud to say that the question "What would Ishmael do?" has guided me several times.

    PS: DO read the books in order.
