    One thought on “Draxius Lost”

    1. I could not wait to read Draxius Lost and have to say it was absolutely fantastic!A "coming-of-age" story revolving around Emily Martin, it concentrates on her early days as a Lieutenant. One of the things I found fascinating was the realism Brian brings to the military situations in his stories. I have no doubt that being a Veteran of the Navy and serving in both non-commissioned and commissioned roles allows him to write these parts so effectively. As a veteran myself, I was taken back to my t [...]

    2. Excellent space opera, with an additional focus on leadership. Veteran NCO has to take the ego out of Lt. Emily Martin, who is all action but short on human understanding. It takes the NCO two books (including the follow on book Draxius Redeemed) to knock some leadership into her, with a bit of final polish from her commanding officer (Major Stone), the hero of an earlier book.

    3. I was delighted to see that Brian Dorsey brought back Emily Martin—a truly fascinating character—someone who is well worthy of her own book. A prequel was an excellent way to give readers a more robust understanding of Emily’s character and motives. It was wonderful to see her personal development via snapshots of who she was then in this book, and the factors that molded her into who she is now.In terms of writing style, Dorsey does not disappoint. His descriptions are both vivid and prec [...]

    4. This story was a short and sweet little addition to the Gateway series where we were originally introduced to the character of Emily Martin. I loved this little side story where we get to find out more about her character. I only wish now that it was longer and I'm seriously hoping there will be more. For me, this character steals the show and I just love that the author, through this book, has shown us a young, stubborn, fallible, slightly volatile Emily Martin. Too often the hero's/heroines of [...]

    5. Its official: Another reader snagged for life. Oh dear. Bye wallet. Please note, I am biased when it comes to military sci fi. I know I am horrible when it comes to reviews. Most times Ill leave feedback usually when yet another writer has gained access to my bank account for life. Darn it all! e site that will drive me into the poorer house.

    6. Amazing story! I couldn't put it down! Lieutenant Emily Martin is such a strong character and this story just highlighted her strengths and awesomeness! Highly recommended!
