The Empire will kill him for stealing this ship… but they have to catch it first!

To the Empire the Wanderer was just another booby-trapped ship to claim, and Jess was just another worthless slave who could be sacrificed in the process.

Things didn’t go to plan. Jess survived the dangers, and when he sat in the pilot’s chair the ancient ship came to life for the first time in centuries.

Acting on instinct Jess seized the chance, firing up the engines and fleeing the Imperial forces.
Now Jess and the ancient self-aware ship are on the run, their freedom and their very existence on the line.

The smart thing to do would be to run like hell and never stop, but Jess finds he can’t ignore pleas for help from those in danger. With the powerful Wanderer at his command he can truly make a difference… but at what cost?

Get Wanderer’s Escape now and see why tens of thousands of people have loved following the Wanderer’s journey, leaving comments including “In the end, I was gripping the arms of my chair as I rooted for the heroes.”, “A fast-paced, can't-put-it-down Sci-fi.” and “One of the best books I've read this year.”

    I did something with this book that I rarely do...I re-read it immediately! That only happens with books that draw me into them. Books that give me an excitement of senses that I don't want to let go of quickly. Great stories, a great movie, great desire to read more of this series. Thank you for your hard work. It does feel more attuned to young people so I'd like more focus on older characters. Obviously, a complete story regarding Sal & Elizabeth. Stage was set for them & may be in rest of series already but if not please consider. Wonderful loved it!
  • Couldn't finish it

    Very juvenile , might appeal to teenagers. I tried to give it a chance but I gave up. I can't imagine what the rest of the series is about, but I'll never find out.

    The idea behind the book is interesting but the writing needs work. Sadly, the book became a chore to read and I only got half way.
  • The struggling man

    By Ajxkhn
    Unexpectedly freed from the only life he ever had, slavery; Jess finds himself as the captain of a mysterious ship more powerful than anything ever built by man. He battles with pirates, corrupt military, slavers, betrayal, his naiveness, and his conscience yet manages to find many new friends and the love of one special person. A good tale to keep you entertained.

  • Almost interesting.

    By TitanZoom
    Character development was weak, but the story fast paced. The writing needs editing.
