Chapter 1

The docking ramp from Mudd’s ship retracted and Michael hailed Harry and said, “Thanks for the help Harry, I owe you one.” Harry said, “No problem Mikey boy! You don't owe me anything!” There was a short pause and Harry said, “Well, maybe...” Michael stifled a laugh and said, “Bye Harry.” After they said their goodbyes Harry’s ship turned away and left the asteroid field as Peter came to the bridge and said, “Dude where did you get this ship?” Michael replied, “It was a special project Zhargosia Space Command was working on before this chaos started. When Lord Serenity announced himself and started tearing apart both Zhargosia and the Federation the long distance shuttle was shelved. I had some of my contacts within SHIELD dig it up and were able to finish it and drop it off here.” Peter said, “Heavy stuff bro. What are you calling her?” Michael replied, “I think Runabout would do nicely.” Michael pressed a few buttons and said, “Okay Peter, where is your ship?” Peter looked at his console and saw a star chart and Peter scrolled through until he found a nebula and said, “The Gashula Nebula, no more than a day away.” Michael pressed a few buttons and said, “Course laid in. If I was all of you, you better put your seatbelt’s on because Its been a long time since I done this on my own.” Peter sat next to Michael as Chloe sat to Michael’s left and Gamora sat at Peter’s right while the rest sat in the lounge. The Runabout left the orbit of the asteroid and the asteroid belt and Michael pressed another button on his console before pushing a lever forward and he said, “Warp 5 to the Gashula Nebula!” And the stars in front of the Runabout turned into white lines and the Runabout went into warp.

Michael got up from his seat and said, “That wasn’t so bad. I don’t know about you but I am starving!” The others followed him as he went to the lounge and he stood by the food replicator, pressed a button and his food came out before he sat. Peter looked astonished and said, “Dude, that thing makes food that you want?” Michael said, “It’s called a food replicator and it does. You can order anything that you want, so long as its in the computer banks and the food banks are full.” After Chloe order hers the others ordered their’s but stood hesitantly as they watched the replicator reveal their meals before they sat down and ate. After they ate Gamora and Drax spent their time sharpening their blades while Rocket modified his rifle as Groot sat in one of the rooms and slept while he snored and Peter sat in the bridge listening to his walkman while Michael and Chloe slept.

Erica: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

Beau Bayot: I like the way the story is told and really engages the reader. In the daily life of a B17 Bomber Pilot that just happens to be a commander of an air-group, along with the hassles of keeping a bomber group running in peak performance during WW2. Banner should also consider himself lucky both at h...

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

Hali McGowan: when will the third book be done? I am absolutely hooked. I red the first two books within less than a week. I'm itching for the third one. The plotline is absolutely wonderful. I've never been much for sci-fi ish books. but you've got me hooked on this series

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.
