Review of ‘Sky Hunter’

Posted on Updated on

Air Command pilot Nova Whiteside is the daughter of a distinguished officer. She’s been assigned to a remote planet to fight in a war against rebel forces, but she finds more danger from within her own ranks. Sky Hunter by Chris Reher is an exciting science fiction/adventure story with action aplenty, and layer upon layer of intrigue and personal interaction.

The author does a masterful job of describing the different beings who are part of the Federation, as well as the rebel forces – but really nails it with the intrigue and underhanded dealings of those within the Federation who threaten Nova’s very existence.

In addition to the character strengths, the book also handles the future technology in a credible way, although the settings, especially those planet-side are a bit shallow. The towns could well be in Earth’s Middle East region, but this is a minor point that doesn’t detract from a well-told story. I give it four stars.
