“The Envoy spent many days floating and recovering from planetfall before it noticed Gabriel Sandro Fuentes.” An eleven year old boy, minding his own business, or rather minding his siblings, is followed home… He has been chosen to act as an Ambassador at the Galactic Assembly. The start of intrigue, an assassin’s plot, and unstoppable action, he returns home to find his father facing deportation.
The ending is open-ended, thankfully implying that there will be a sequel. You’d want to read more from this author. He is smart, quirky, intense, and different. A great read!
