    Anomalous Thrust is a thrilling and action-packed science fiction novel that takes readers on an exciting adventure through a dangerous star system. Captain Lana Fiveworlds, her ship Gravity Rose, and her motley crew of misfits find themselves in a predicament when they have to emergency ditch inside a star system that is full of deadly secrets.

    The story’s world-building is impressive, creating a vivid and captivating environment that adds to the tension and suspense of the plot. The various factions in the star system, from the slave-owning aristocracy to the rebels trying to overthrow the government, make for compelling antagonists. The moon-sized alien vessel that appears every few centuries is an intriguing and mysterious element that adds to the book’s intrigue.

    Hunt’s characters are well-developed and relatable, especially Lana, who is a strong and determined protagonist that readers will root for. Her crew of misfits, Calder, Zeno, Skrat, Polter, and the chief, provide the perfect balance of humor and competence that make them a joy to follow.

    The book is a terrific page-turner, that much is true. Captain Lana Fiveworlds is a strong and independent woman who leads an eccentric crew through space. And they really do get themselves into a lot of bother. Lana has a demanding client on board the Gravity Rose, but that’s nothing compared to the dangers they face when they have to make an emergency landing in a star system full of dangerous secrets. It’s a long shot, but with Calder, Zeno, Skrat, Polter, and the chief on board, they have a fighting chance. And I have to say, I got a good laugh out of some of the crew’s antics. Let’s just say there’s some arguing, a lot of bravery, and some unexpected twists and turns without giving too much away.
