Where Starships Go To Die #1 introduces us to (former) Captain Samkeli Dlameni, who was fingertips away from realizing his dream of going to space, before a war changed everything… now the world is different, the habitable places on the planet have become more and more scarce, due to the climate making earth hotter and hotter, specifically for those below the equator, who seem to be neglected and left out of the benefits of the technology of the time, like fusion reactors. The story takes off quickly when Captain Dlameni is met by Kiara Katri,who wants to put a team together to claim the Daedalus, the very ship that the Captain was supposed to be a part of, before war took that opportunity away from him. The challenge-bring up the Daedalus, which will give Katri the oppurtunity to reverse engineer the fusion reactor,which could bring clean free energy to the southern half of the world and the multinational powers that exploit them. Samkeli Dlameni would also get a chance to reclaim his destiny and become Captain of the Daedalus.

Great, great book. The story starts strong and just gets stronger with the turn of every page. While its a Sci-fi story, the names and places will introduce readers to worlds of a time long past, which will only serve to make the story stronger as you gain an appreciation to the research, honor and approach this story takes to blend history, legendary fiction, and ghosts of our past, that were only ever just playing dead. 

If this story can continue the pace that the creators have established, it would seem we could be at the beginning of one of the gems of 2022. Aftershock, y’all got a real one here.
