Editorial Reviews

Michael J. Sullivan
“Nathan Lowell does what few authors can…make each successive book better than the previous one. While Full Share remains true to Nathan’s goal of exploring the lives of ordinary people, what we find is something truly extraordinary—the coming of age of a character that we just love spending time with. Nathan’s Solar Clipper has been compared to the addictiveness of crack cocaine and a return to classic Heinlein; I think both descriptions are well deserved.

Meet the Author

Nathan Lowell has been a writer for more than forty years, and first entered the literary world by podcasting his novels. His sci-fi series, Trader's Tales from The Golden Age of the Solar Clipper, grew from his long time fascination with space opera and his own experiences shipboard in the United States Coast Guard. Unlike most works which focus on a larger-than-life hero (prophesized savior, charismatic captain, or exiled prince), Nathan centers on the people behind the scenes--ordinary men and women trying to make a living in the depths of space. In his novels, there are no bug-eyed monsters, or galactic space battles, instead he paints a richly vivid and realistic world where the "hero" uses hard work and his own innate talents to improve his station and the lives of those of his community.

Dr. Nathan Lowell holds a Ph.D. in Educational Technology with specializations in Distance Education and Instructional Design. He also holds an M.A. in Educational Technology and a BS in Business Administration. He grew up on the south coast of Maine and is strongly rooted in the maritime heritage of the sea-farer. He served in the USCG from 1970 to 1975, seeing duty aboard a cutter on hurricane patrol in the North Atlantic and at a communications station in Kodiak, Alaska. He currently lives in the plains east of the Rocky Mountains with his wife and two daughters.

    more from this reviewer

    You need to continue with Ishmael in this book. It keeps getting better and better in this world.

    I like that Ish rethinks the last weekend at port. He realizes he was a bit out of hand with all that happened. This is a young man, having fun but growing up too. He sees it and that's what matters. He learns from it. As of the first chapter, I was sure we had our Ish back. This starts this book off on great terms for me. I was a little...unimpressed? with Ish by the end of Half Share. This book, he COMPLETELY redeems himself for me.

    Ish is a great person in that he shows that those surrounding him are amazing and he can easily highlight all. Surrounded with brilliance here and Ish spotlights each in their area of expertise. That makes a crew and an amazing ship. Ish doesn't take the spotlight, he share and gives credit where credit is due.

    Just when you think life is grand and Ish and reader get comfortable, life twists. Things get complicated and Ish might not have a job on the Lois McKendrick much longer. This is one thing Ish feared in the first book, but thought he was safe until now. This was a hard thing to Ish as he'd found a home here and one thing he never really had - friends. Even in the end of this book, some separations are hard to get through. And I felt the twinge of not wanting this separation to happen yet wanting it and the future that comes.

    Ish always thought he would go to University because that was where his mother worked. But Spacers have a specialized Academy as well. And now the idea is on Ish's plate, but is it what he wants? The more Ish learns, the more he thinks going to the Academy could open many doors for him. And the nudging he gets, he will seriously consider it. Several think the Merchant Academy is the place for him.

    We get a closer look at all the characters here and find I've become closer to them all as Ish has. There are so many great influences on the Lois. All helped guide Ish to where Ish wanted to be. The ship, Lois, even seems to feel like her own spirit to me in this book as well. We get a bit more with Pip and do I really enjoy the free feeling of him and Ish talking and joking. I enjoy their trading and co-op works. We even learn a great deal more of Pip's family. Nice to see this here. And some of what Ish learns sends him reeling from what Spacer life is really like. He's one of a small few that aren't born to Spacer life styles.

    In listening to this book, I realized Nathan creates strong smart women. He has several in high and powerful positions - Captains and several high ranked officers. Some might ask about Sarah, but really, she is one of the strongest for the choices she's made. These woman all have troubles and obstacles to face and overcome, but they do and they are not shorted by it at all.

    Ish has a new position for a time, and with it we learn more of the outer deep space. I love how the common life actions are because of it's environment - why we do what we do - and is explained through the characters.

    Listening to this book, I want so much for Ish.

    Better than the second book but not quite as good as the first.

    Better than the second book but not quite as good as the first.

    Still a fascinating look at trade between planetary systems and the people who make it possible in a unique science-fiction setting, and more interesting than the dating lives we saw in the last book. I very much recommend this entire series, or at least as much as I've read so far, and I'm looking forward to the next one!

    Mr. Lowell is very good at telling a compelling story built on the small moments in life.  He has created a full wonderfully detailed universe and I grew attached to the characters that populate it.  I'm working my way through the entire series, I'm now on book 4, and I haven't been disappointed yet.

    I'm addicted!

    This is just a great read and well done storyline. None of the usual space opera battle scenes, which in fact I didn't miss, and is quite refreshing. I eagerly await the remaining books, but I only read on my nook if I can help it, old eyes ;)

    A Must Read!

    I love the entire series! I generally do not read sci-fi at all but was drawn in with full share and had to get the entire series! I love the pace of each book and well thought out story! As a result of this series, i have devoured everything from Mr. Lowell I could find! Wonderful!

    HIGHLY recommended!

    An excellent series. I'd suggest it to any readers of Space Opera type SF. heck, even to those that don't, as it is just an excellent story. Pity they are being so tardy at bringing out the rest of the series.
