Sci-Fi in the so High Sky

In terms of catchy headings/titles, a little alliteration or rhyming words can work well.  Sometimes they bomb, big time, and sometimes they result in head-scratching or “huh?”.  This one popped into my head and refused to leave, so at the top of this post it had to go.

A while ago, I promised to revisit a couple of authors . . . and I always honor pledges.  Sean Robins’ latest book—The Gray Emperor: An Epic Space Opera/Parallel Universe Adventure, the seventh in the series—has been garnering great reviews.

★★★★★ “I have to say the ability for this author to tell a story has got me hooked. I fell in love with all the characters and it became a goal to find out what happened.”
★★★★★ “I loved this! I highly recommend this to any fan of pop culture, especially Star Trek fans!”
★★★★★ “This book was a Godsend as I was struggling to find a book to engage me. Sean Robins got it right with this book and I’m super excited for more.”
★★★★★ “Plot and characters are well developed and filled with real emotion. Pleasantly surprising twists!”
★★★★★ “I found myself becoming involved with the characters and caring for them and their struggles.”
★★★★★ “I loved this book! Great story, great characters, awesome movie references and humor.”
★★★★★ “This author is very talented, grabbed and held my interest.”

My own one-sentence review: A quirky and fun read with engaging characters and thrilling sky-high battle scenes.

For those not in the know, in The Gray Emperor, ever staunch General Maada leads his fleet to the White Republic universe, where the Xenoakakies rule with an iron fist. There, he encounters a few old friends, as well as some new foes, including the Death Angel, the legendary enemy pilot who’s killed the general’s doppelganger.

While Maada has been through his fair share of dangerous and/or doomed battles, this one takes him into an entirely different realm.  The resolute insects’ hold on this universe seems unshakable, and their fleet dwarfs the general’s in vast numbers and power.  But Maada is indomitable and will fight, whatever the cost.

Maada, flying the Crimson Deathbringer off the ground and towards the approaching enemy fleet, checked his tactical display. Forty-six thousand space fighters from seven different species were following him. He had led the forces under his command into battle countless times, but this was the first time he was in command of an allied force fighting an aggressor with the entire galaxy’s survival at stake. That thought filled his chest with fierce pride.

He had been in this position before, fighting first the Volts, then Father, and later the White Republic’s navy to save billions, but on both those occasions Jim had been in command. This, however, was his fleet, and it would be his victory.

Along for the electrifying ride: Jim Harrison the protagonist and narrator for all the books in the series, Tarq the jokester, and Xornaa the femme fatale mercenary and Xortaag spy.

For those not familiar with Sean, he’s a huge fan of Marvel, Game of Thrones, Star Wars, and Star Trek.  He’s also a university/college level English teacher who has lived and worked in different countries.  To find out more, please check out Sean and his new book at:

Author: tylerus

I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction. So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects). It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.
