Story Spotlight: Solaris

Solaris is the first book in the Star Streaker series by TM Catron. If you like Firefly or Hans Solo from Star Wars, I think this is going to be the book for you!

I am a bit of a science fiction nerd. OK, fine. I’m a huge science fiction nerd. I was raised on Star Wars and found Star Trek on my own. So, I was excited as soon as I saw the cover of this book. That being said, sometimes science fiction bogs me down with too much detail about the tech. That is not the case in Solaris.

The expensive chip implanted in her C1 vertebra connected with the Streaker and the artificial lens in her right eye–the Zeus corporation Optical Display, or ZOD.

See what I mean? This is the perfect blend of info and story. I know what it is, and I know what it does. We don’t need to hear about the chips processors to understand how it works. Also, freaking fascinating!

This story has it all. Smugglers, space fights, on planet fights, magic. It’s like it was made for me! Did I mention awesome shape shifting? Check this out:

As Rance watched, his face shifted, morphing with a slight shimmer into fairer skin, a few freckles, and a more rounded nose. Then his dark hair turned wavy brown.

I’m not going to tell you who is shifting, or why. You need to buy the book just like I did.

The best part of all(for me) is that the captain is a woman! Rance is an amazing captain and she kicks ass too. I could give you a thousand more quotes, but instead I let TM Catron tell us more about the story. As always, anything in bold is from me.

I came up with the main character just out of the blue one day. I wanted to do something different than my post-apocalyptic stuff, something more light-hearted and funny.[By funny, she means hilarious. I laughed out load and scared my dog a few times] And I love the feeling you get from a crew of friends who also get on each other’s nerves. So Rance just happened while I was vacuuming the house one day. I stopped vacuuming [note to self vacuum more], sat down, and wrote the first chapter without any plot in mind, and then Harrison just appeared, and then the whole thing about the arranged marriage, and voila! After that, I went back and expanded, and then plotted out the rest of the story. The setting I really wanted a far future ship because those kinds of worlds fascinate me (and they’re just fun). [Planet with purple sand!!!] I can make up history. That’s fun too. One thing to take away from the story is that a strong woman is still vulnerable. [Preach!] Sometimes she’s strong because of those vulnerabilities. With the right friends, everything seems like an adventure. [Is this the series tagline? It definitely rocks my socks.]
