all hail Stephanie of the awesome critiquing skills! they are mad, mad skills!
would still love to get feedback on this “final” version. :o)
Luxurious suites and decadent food. The best service money can buy. The latest in technology, ship defense, and shielding. All this and more accompanies the spacecruiser Connemara into The Fluctuation, a Bermuda Triangle region of space, on a titillating trip for the wealthy. None of it saves them from a Titanic event forcing all hands to abandon ship shortly after entering The Fluctuation.
Four get left behind in the chaos of evacuation: an heiress with no purpose on life; a sarcastic robot scheduled for termination; a telepathic feline alien getting to know humans better; and a young stowaway in search of his parents.
Crisis after crisis strikes, bonding the makeshift crew as they struggle to keep the Connemara running and themselves alive. Brutal pirates. Deadly space phenomena. Unknown aliens with secret agendas. When the crew goes all-in and delves deeper into The Fluctuation the danger increases, but so does the potential reward…reuniting a family torn apart by The Fluctuation almost two decades ago.
‘Fluctuations’ is a light-hearted adventure novel with the soul of a coming-of-age story.
