About the Author

Shami Stovall is a multi-award-winning author of fantasy and science fiction, with several best-selling novels under her belt. Before that, she taught history and criminal law at the college level, and loved every second.

Reviews

"Action fans will enjoy the violence and scheming that drive this story of guile and dark ambition." - Publishers Weekly

"A great read for any who are new or old fans of the space opera genre and a worthy addition to any with a science fiction library." - Portland Book Review

"Tightly written, succinct, stunning, and at times moving, Star Marque Rising is a fascinating read... The pace of the book is fast and characterization thorough. Without elaborate wordplay, Stovall manages to communicate the humane side of her characters. The snappish relationships between Demarco and some crew members; Lysander and Sawyer on the Star Marque is wryly depicted, and various missions they attend to during their time on the star ship itself makes fascinating reading as both an action adventure and an intellectually stimulating premise. A thrilling read!" - The Prairies Book Review

"The protagonist has been so skillfully crafted that it's impossible not to love him... Star Marque Rising is so much more than a traditional science fiction novel, and this is all due to Stovall's skillful and creative writing. This shows true talent from the author to blend layered character development, action, and back stories without giving away too much of the plot at once; this novel is a truly captivating read. Even those who generally do not overly gravitate toward sci-fi will be hooked and left on the edge of their seat begging for more." - Entrada Reviews

"Stovall's Star Marque Rising is to Moby Dick what House, MD is to Sherlock Holmes. At its core, Moby Dick is a story about obsession, and the destruction it can wreak, and so is Star Marque Rising. It trades the vastness of the ocean for the vastness of space and a mobile white whale for an elusive stationary governorship. Endellion, though, is every bit as ruthless and blindly obsessed as Ahab. The story ends with the possibility of a sequel, and I really hope we get one. I want to know where this story is going! Recommended for those who enjoy space opera/ sci-fi along the lines of Star Wars and Ender's Game." - San Francisco Book Review

"The best modern sci-fi I've read since Wool by Hugh Howey." - Abbey Reads
