I catalog hundreds of books each year and write summaries for many of them. It is rare for me to get excited about many of the fiction books many of which lack substance and a story line that can keep me enthralled. In Ms. Veihl I am excited to find an author with imagination and the writing skills to put them into words. This first novel was a treat for a science fiction fan looking for a good plot, interesting characters and a relaxing way to spend a few good evenings.

'Stardoc' is the first in a continuing series of novels featuring the adventures of Doctor Cherijo Grey Veil after she flees Earth to prevent a terrible family secret from destroying her. The first several chapters are like James White at the top of his form, as Cherijo struggles with a new job as a physician with the Free Clinic on Kevarzangia Two -- relying only on her wits and her medical genius to cope with a flood of exotically alien patients. Cherijo develops into an engaging character, and faces dangers to herself and her adopted world with courage and delightful humour. Twist follows twist, each utterly unexpected but flawlessly set up, culminating in an ending that's just right. The devastating revelation on the final page leaves the reader wailing for the next book: which, luckily, is readily available: 'Beyond Varallan.'

Sheila Viehl takes us on a new adventure which is an engrossing first novel. The main character Cherijo is a strong and likeable character. The wide range of races which inhabit this planet will surprise and keep you entertained up until the end of the story and leave you wanting more. You will learn to like Cherijo and her menage and want to hear more about them. I can't wait for the next edition. I recommend it highly.

Stardoc by S. Viehl This is a series of 10 novels, and I hope we see more. Not all of the books are still in print or have yet been turned into e-books. That is a shame; but it is a series that is well worth the trouble of trying to find them through the other seller’s option on Amazon. This is true Sci-Fi with an underlying theme of romance, but not cloying romance. Dr Cherijo Grey Veil is a remarkable Doctor. She leaves Earth to use her talents in another world with many different species and to escape her smothering father. . But she also carries a secret, and this is one that is revealed fairly slowly over the course of several of the books. The biggest question is, is she truly human and sentient? Cherijo will fight many battles in the next few books, one of the biggest is proving her sentience and remaining far away from her ‘father’ and creator. She has many problems with several men in her life and will prove that while brilliant, she is sadly lacking in the male/female aspects of life. Sometimes this is humorous and sometimes it is downright heartbreaking, as you will see if you read the series. Each book continues to show us what a strong female protagonist she is, with a lovely sort of snarky attitude that absolutely works for her character. Sometimes she can come off as a “Mary-Sue” sort of character but Ms Viehl makes it work to be believable to the reader. This is a highly enjoyable, very exciting series with a strong female protagonist and I recommend this series to those who enjoy SciFi with a small dose of romance.

I've recently overcome a reading slump thanks to the quality of writing displayed in this book. The characters are easy to hate and love and the plot is very in depth. Viehl has created a vibrant world in this series with just enough description to make it "real"; and pulls the reader in with a relatable protagonist who is suffering from problems many people deal with in their lives (And ones we rarely see). Only she is very far in the future.
