Staff Reviews

If you want an effortlessly inclusive and incredibly fun adventure that will take you to the furthest edge of their galaxy and back, the crew aboard the Kaitan Heritage have a story for you. SHADOW RUN follows Qole, whose Shadow-enhanced skills as an airship captain transcend her tiny planet of Alaxak, and Nev, who needs the space-poisoned captain to save his family and, maybe, the galaxy. AdriAnne Strickland and Michael Miller splash onto the scene with this incredibly fast-paced debut that will leave readers begging for more. Perfect for fans of "Firefly" or ILLUMINAE.

— Nicole


Firefly meets Dune in this action-packed sci-fi adventure about a close-knit, found family of a crew navigating a galaxy of political intrigue and resource-driven power games.

Nev has just joined the crew of the starship Kaitan Heritage as the cargo loader. His captain, Qole, is the youngest-ever person to command her own ship, but she brooks no argument from her crew of orphans, fugitives, and con men. Nev can't resist her, even if her ship is an antique.

As for Nev, he's a prince, in hiding on the ship. He believes Qole holds the key to changing galactic civilization, and when her cooperation proves difficult to obtain, Nev resolves to get her to his home planet by any means necessary.

But before they know it, a rival royal family is after Qole too, and they're more interested in stealing her abilities than in keeping her alive.

Nev's mission to manipulate Qole becomes one to save her, and to survive, she'll have to trust her would-be kidnapper. He may be royalty, but Qole is discovering a deep reservoir of power--and stars have mercy on whoever tries to hurt her ship or her crew.

"An entertaining intergalactic ride." --Bulletin

" A] well-executed sci-fi caper...full of intriguing commentary about wealth inequality and exploitation." --Booklist

About the Author

ADRIANNE STRICKLAND AND MICHAEL MILLER met in their hometown of Palmer, Alaska, where they agreed on books 99 percent of the time, and thus decided to write together. Michael grew up off the grid in a homestead in Alaska and ironically now works very much on the grid in IT and Web development. AdriAnne grew up in Nevada and now spends her summers as a commercial fisherwoman in Bristol Bay, Alaska, and the rest of her year writing. This is their first book together.
