IF EVER THERE WAS A TIME TO "TRUST LOIS" THIS WOULD BE IT. When the home office adds a new crew member to the environmental section of the Lois McKendrick, Ishmael Wang faces being put ashore at the next port. Not even his multiple division ratings can save him as he refuses to bump one of his shipmates, which is the only way he can stay with his friends on his new found home in the Deep Dark.
Ishmael's predicament goes from bad to worse when an EMP damages the ship and threatens the lives of everyone on board. Gone are the days when his biggest challenge was making a good cup of coffee. Now he must use his wits, and rely on the ingenuity of his shipmates just to survive. Return with the crew of the SC Lois McKendrick, in what may prove to be their final voyage. All your favorites will be aboard including: Ish, Pip, Cookie, Brill, Diane, and Big Bad Bev.
"Nathan Lowell does what few authors can...make each successive book better than the previous one. While Full Share remains true to Nathan's goal of exploring the lives of ordinary people, what we find is something truly extraordinary--the coming of age of a character that we just love spending time with. Nathan's Solar Clipper has been compared to the addictiveness of crack and a return to classic Heinlein I think both descriptions are well deserved." -- Michael Sullivan, bestselling author of the Riyria Revelations
"One of those books you can be lost in. You have ownership with each person Mr. Lowell brings to the story. A great read, about someone you wish could be a close friend. Sail away with this set of books."
"My favorite thing about these books is the gentle but fantastic and believable world-building. Mr. Lowell just sucks you in and mkes you feel at home with these characters both on the ship and off."
"Nathan Lowell is a brilliant storyteller. The Trader Tales do not need battles, murder plots or evil villains to keep the story moving. What it has is the most amazing characters who will become your friends and family! Thanks, Nathan, for hours and hours of pure pleasure!"
"This is a good old-fashioned SF coming-of-age story and Nathan Lowell presents it with a masterly hand."
"This whole series is phenomenal--I loved everything from Quarter Share to Owner's Share. The later books are available in PodioBook format (podcasts), and are wonderfully read by the author."
