Here’s the first review of Survive.


What a fantastic book!!! I love how while every book you write is technically the same genre, they are all completely different. Survive came alive from the first page, and really took on a life of its own. The characters were all well developed and believable, the story was saturated with the atmosphere, and the bad guy Bal was someone that everyone has experienced at one point in their life! A lot of effort has been put into the research for the story, it comes across as real instead of patently fake. My goodness, that ending though! Perfect setup for a second book, which I sincerely hope there is one! All in all, another fabulous read.

Freefall. Galactic adventures with Dave Travise. Part 1
"A rattling good adventure story, with… unexpected twists, good characters and plenty of action" "Immersive and richly described" Dave Travise is an interplanetary trader with a past. Trying to forget, whilst being constantly reminded is no way to live, but sometimes letting go is just too painful. And the “Freefall” is his past, so that’s part of the problem. So when excitement comes back into his life, in the shape of a dead girl and a stolen disc, his world turns upside down. Events take control of his life, and before he knows how, he’s at the centre of a Galaxy-wide conspiracy, chasing the answers that explain the past and may hold the key to the future. With the truth to reveal, he’s pursued by those who want it kept secret. The story goes from the civilised centre to the edge of exploration. A cast of pirates, smugglers, and legendary explorers all play their part in a story that’s older than us. Richard Dee has a superb gift for creating believable reality, and this first-person narrative is space opera at its best. Read the first book in the series, Myra for more adventures with Dave Travise.
