    New 'universe', new adventures

    Believable characters with actual depth. 'Taken Liberty' is a story that allows the reader to 'see' the universe that is created, let's one 'live' and 'experience' what is going on in the story. This was the most enjoyable read I have had in a long time. I can't wait to see what the Arbiters get into next.

    Long live the Arbiters!

    ¿Taken Liberty¿ by Steve Wilson is based upon his series of award winning radio dramas ¿The Arbiter Chronicles¿ available at the Prometheus Radio Theatre online store. This science fiction/mystery novel is set 500 years in the future, but deals with some of the same problems we face today. It is a rich character driven story that will grip you almost from the first page with suspense of what comes next. No great space battles here, just solid story telling! Never fear that you need to hear the radio plays to understand this stand-alone story, he jumps right in and draws you in the first two pages. As Mr. Wilson unfolds the story the reader is introduced to each character with humor and you begin to care for each as if they were your own friends. His characters and universe is layered in complexity that will intrigue your curiosity for more as each page turns, and the plot thickens riveting your attention until the final page. This appears to be only the first of a long series for Mr. Wilson, long live the Arbiters!

    A Must for any fan of good Science Fiction!

    I was pleased with the blend of science fiction and character development. Steve Wilson did an excellent job with a captivating storyline. His characterizations and social commentary were a nice mixture and that is what I love in good science fiction
