Book Review – The Azure Key by Trevor Schmidt
I used to read a lot of Science Fiction as a kid, especially Heinlen and Herbert, but as an adult I’ve tended to veer away from the world of space and the cosmos – much to my own detriment I suspect. The Azure Key is a good, old fashioned tale of three people caught up in a set of circumstances beyond their control. The “hero” for the want of a better word, Liam Kidd, is your typical hard-man mercenary (freelancer), with a heart of gold and a true sense of justice, despite his tough-man demeanor. The “love interest”, Saturn Vera is of course beautiful, but as tough and fiery as Liam, as she well displays early on in the story. Together with Ju-Long, the trio escape an attack on the asteroid mine they are working on by shooting through a wormhole to the other side of the galaxy where humans have “never” been before.
