Quick thrill ride with some original ish ideas and some classic themes executed very well [ Book ] ♁ The Weapon from Beyond ♖ The stars whispered Die, Starwolf Die Morgan Chane was an Earthman by

strength and endurance in fact, one of the reasons the Star Wolves are so tough is that the heavy gravity of their planet allows them to push their spaceships beyond the g s humans can normally experience, which allows them to be farmaneuverable, etc However, Chane has fled their presence because of a dispute over loot, and like most Space operas resemble a western theme as Chane killed a member of one of the families and his kid want vengeance and will stop at nothing to get it When Chane s ship is stranded he is taken aboard a mercenary ship and earns his place in one of their missions Full of a number of odd alien beings and cool merc equipment, Chane enjoys merc life, but knows the Star Wolves are still seeking him What follows is a heady adventure full of action including ship to ship and ground combat Much better than I actually expected and I have the next two in the series on my shelf and well definitely read them Quanto mi piacciono i vecchi romanzi di
