Money Can’t Buy Respect
Sayuri Arai, privileged daughter of a corporate mogul, abandons a promising career to find her own path. She invests in a broken-down asteroid mining ship and steps in as the commander of its crew. Every day presents a new challenge just to keep her ship from falling apart and the bitter crew from killing each other. Can Sayuri unite the feuding factions, or will her rivals turn the entire complement against her? Commanding the Red Lotus offers a classic sense of wonder for today’s science fiction readers.This book is out now.
What keeps me coming back to R.J. Sullivan is that he’s always able to write characters that are enjoyable and a real. This is the first book I read of his in his Red Lotus series as I enjoyed his supernatural books immensely, this book did not disappoint! I enjoyed reading it from start to finish, I loved watching Co-Commander Arai grow into a person that was a strong leader and she wasn’t the only person to grow either, the entire crew of the Red Lotus did as well and I think that element help make the book great. Overall I really enjoyed reading this and can’t wait for more adventures with the Red Lotus family.
