Voyage of the Neo Star by Michael G. Johnson

A thoroughly entertaining space-adventure with imaginative action and setting…

Johnson debuts with this high-action space adventure, taking readers on an exhilarating ride into space. When the news of the Neo Star spacecraft’s explosion reaches freshman college student Steve Brighton, he is devastated to lose his father, the chief engineer of the spacecraft. But a mysterious sealed envelope falls into Steve’s hands, pointing to the official story being a lie. Trying to uncover the truth, Steve joins the few who know the truth and finds himself entangled in a sinister conspiracy. He must tread carefully or risk losing his own life. This is a story of good versus evil, full of twisting spacecraft technology and otherworldly adventure. Johnson deftly creates a futuristic setting that is both authentic and atmospheric. The narrative is a feat of considerable imagination and attitude: there are time machines, magnificent spaceships, and interplanetary intrigue: there is also plenty of family drama, individual struggles, and poignant emotions that add welcome texture (the emotional element will tug at readers’ hearts as courageous, goodhearted protagonists face mortal danger from truly cruel and evil souls). Despite his obvious faults, Steve is an endearing protagonist. The pacing is swift and plotting tight, and the action scenes are crafted with skill. Johnson adeptly combines elements of space opera and adventure fiction while raising questions about power politics, totalitarian systems, family ties, courage, betrayal, redemption, and the nature of greed. A promising, conspiracy-high space adventure that will appeal to lovers of fast-paced space opera.
