Solar Wind is a fabulous Calgon "take me away" moment. In a voice reminiscent of Linnea Sinclair and Susan Grant, author Carole Ann Lee literally takes the reader to a galaxy far away, and involves us in the adventures of a 6 foot 3 inch drop dead gorgeous space pirate, Zeke Slate. Solar Wind is vivid with details of life aboard a spaceship, full of funny moments, true terror, true heroism, and perhaps perfect love. Solar Wind is a grand adventure.
I enjoyed Solar Wind a lot it was very much in keeping with Carole Ann Lee's prior futuristic work starting with Banner's Bonus. I hope to read more of her work soon. 4 HEARTS
Author Carole Ann Lee skillfully writes science fiction without badgering the reader with descriptions of advanced technology. In her hands, futuristic off-planet life becomes realistic and possible and readers find themselves caught up in the action, of which there is plenty. Mystery and suspense vie with romance and sexual tension to attract our attention.
Fast paced and engaging, Solar Wind has moments of light humour and occasional calm that contrast nicely with the dramatic and darker themes. Solar Wind is an enjoyable read that I read in one sitting, something I rarely do these days. 3 out of 4 STARS
