This one was a surprise for me. I'd seen a lot of mediocre reviews, that strangely vehemently compared it to Joss Whedon's Firefly, but then complained that it was, inf act, not enough like Firefly. I saw a definite influence, but I saw the influence of many more modern sci-fi franchises as well, su...

Avalon was actually quite entertaining. While I had trouble getting into it in the first half, the action started picking up towards the end and the ending was quite explosive. I'm typically not a fan of science fiction and like to reserve my sci-fi enjoyments to visual media (television and movies)...

Unlike the TV show Firefly the characters in this book did not have much in the way of "on page" chemistry. While the story itself was fairly action packed the characters were for the most part flat and one dimensional and none of them stood out, not even the main character Jeth.

This is Firefly fanfiction under different names. Boy, they weren't kidding when the summary of the book said it is "a great match for fans of Joss Whedon's cult hit show Firefly." There are a tremendous amount of similarities, for one, the plot: a ragtag crew of mercenaries set out into space on a...

Avalon is compared to Firefly, but I've never seen it. I'll definitely be watching soon though.Avalon starts off a bit slow. I felt like things could have been sped up a bit, but I can understand the slower pace. This futuristic world definitely needs some groundwork laid out for us so that we kn...
