Stellar Instinct by Jonathan Nevair

Book Blurb:

A secret agent. A gaming mastermind. Two players in a dangerous competition blurring the
boundaries of entertainment and reality.

Mysterious signals pulse from an icy planet in a remote star system. GAM-OPs wants answers. Enter
Lilline Renault, secret agent extraordinaire. To ordinary citizens she’s Keely Larkin, an adventure
company guide with a flair for the daring and a penchant for writing trite poetry. Lilline’s at the top of
the spy game, but publishing her literary work is proving harder than saving the galaxy.
When the mission uncovers a dastardly plan threatening billions of lives, Lilline leaps into action. Verses
flow as she rockets through space, dons cunning disguises, and infiltrates enemy territory with an
arsenal of secret gadgets. But to prevent the whims of a self-obsessed entrepreneur from turning the
galaxy into a deadly playground means beating him at his own game. Lilline will need her best weapon
to stand a fighting chance: her instinct.

STELLAR INSTINCT: A spy-fi thriller set in space.

My Thoughts:

All I’m looking for is an escape! A way out of this crazy world… Jonathan Nevair provided me with a galaxy full of intrigue, unique characters, and feels.

Stellar Instinct is full of twists and turns… a plot that is includes well-placed fights and a Mos Eisley cantina full of alien and humanoid species. I loved the protagonist Lilline who I had no problem rooting for. She was the source of many of the feels… her poetry-writing and her strong relationship with her grandmother are just two details that make her an unforgettable character.

A couple other things of note: Some keen speculation on the part of Nevair in the form of gadgets and future tech. This is a pretty accessible title. There’s always a fear in the minds of some readers that scifi is nothing but a Star Trek maintenance manual… Stellar Instinct is far from. A page-turning scifi thriller!
