    I Also Recommend:

    A fun read reminiscent of the Galaxy of Star Trek and Star Wars.

    I greatly enjoyed reading the Chronicles of Mathias. It is a strongly dialogue driven story introducing new and mysterious alien races in a futuristic galactic world. Marilyn's characters meet with intensity and unique personality as the story unfolds. An evil, power-hungry Reptilian race lurks in the shadows, working their chaotic machinations on the masses that is exciting in this volume and promises to continue in future editions. In the future I would also like to experience more depth to this galactic world such as setting and character descriptions. However, Volume One shows great promise and is a fine beginning.
    It is a light and easy read, but satisfying. I would also recommend it for young adult readers.
    Sincerely, Erik.

    Chronicles of Mathias- Reptilian Rebirth, Young sci-fi fans check it out!

    Here's our first book for following Mathias (the main character), a young man out on his own for the first time in outer space. He takes a job with the rouge captain Pinjour aboard his space trading space into adventure.
    I found the book enjoyable, and believe it captures the wonder of a young lad taking in the wonders of space for the first time. I would imagine this would play very well for young readers just breaking into Sci-Fi for the first time without them having to have a Masters Degree in quantum physics. I particularly enjoyed the character of Pinjour- the captain Mathias falls in with. He has some comedy about him that I liked. Now for the "technicals". If this author wnts caryy on with this series, she really needs to add more "flesh and bones" in the way of detail to the characters, particularly Mathias. Mathias is supposed to be the main character here, but comes out seeming almost peripheral to the books proceedings. I understand the authors intent is probably to keep it simple for a young audience, but I tend to see young sci-fi readers as a cut above the average reader and I believe they need (and can handle) more in the way of details. Give us more "stuff", please! There also seems to be an awful lot of exclamitory phrases, so much so that they begin to lose their "bang" so to speak. Less of those in the future also please.
    Overall a nice first start to this series for young sci-fi readers. Quite charming, just some technical fine tuning is needed.
