RESCUE RUN is a tie-in novel to the STAR REALMS card game, which I am unfamiliar with but my Lucifer's Star novel co-author (and game store operator), Michael Suttkus, swears by. It is apparently a card game set in a universe of various star empires competing for domination. Aside from this, I know nothing about it and will be reviewing purely on the text itself.The premise is A.I.-equipped master thief Joan (who is pals with G.O.D in a bit of wordplay on her part) gets captured when the Navy se [...]

Surprisingly good. I did not have high expectations for a novel based on a card game, even for a game as great as Star Realms. I think the writing could have been a bit tighter and some of the sentences were awkwardly constructed, but it is a fine first novel. I'm definitely interested in reading more of the series if it continues.

Jon Del Arroz brings life and depth to two of the main factions of the world of the Star Realms deck building card game. He creates a backstory for the corporation centered Trade Federation and the militaristic Star Empire that draws you immediately into the lives of the main characters. It is not your typical shoot-em-up or space battle Military Sci-Fi, but is instead focused on intrigue and espionage. The world building is excellent, and the characters depth grows considerably as the story pro [...]

The best! This book had a really interesting plot and great characters. It took about 4 chapters to get into because there was quite a few characters and several different settings. But then once I was into it, I just loved the characters. The author really made me care about them and what was going on with them. This book was refreshing in that there wasn't a love triangle and the characters don't keep on-going secrets from each other. Here two characters who start out separated by class and va [...]

Entertaining and enthusiastic space opera, and didn't require any knowledge of the game it's based on. Could be the foundation for an interesting series. I did find the Evil Corporation's plot that drives the last third to be a bit far-fetched and not entirely believable, but by then things are happening fast enough to go along for the ride.

So Much Fun—And Some Unexpected Poignancy TooStar Realms Rescue Run is 8/10s adventure, 1.5/10s romance (yeah, I know that’s a whacky measurement. Just run with me here), and the rest is a smattering of poignancy I didn’t expect within this genre. Joan is a heroine I can get behind; resourceful, quick, just brave enough to not be arrogant, and just vulnerable enough to not be a sop. I like her—and adore her unorthodox relationship with her Artificial Intelligence (AI) who bears the tongu [...]

A fun read.Full Disclosure, I know the author.This was a great little science fiction story with a hint of romance. I hope for more adventures from the main characters.

I bought Rescue Run largely because I like the Star Realms game and wanted to support it. The book is set in the game's universe, though the linkage pretty much ends there. The game's fleet-building mechanics aren't really reflected in the book, though players will recognize plenty of names.Leaving aside the Star Realms tie-ins, Rescue Run is a decent if not particularly imaginative story. Renegade thief is collared by the powers-that-be and forced to join a dangerous mission against an evil opp [...]

3.5 stars. Star Realms: Rescue Run is a tie-in to the (very enjoyable) deckbuilding game of the same name. Its pulp-style plot is raised above the average by its memorable main characters: Joan Shengtu, thief forced to be secret agent, and Dario Anazao, privileged son expected to fill his father's footsteps in the ruthless corporation who is discovering that the company line is a bitter one to swallow. The best part of the book the witty repartee between Joan and her artificial intelligence G.O. [...]

Let us start this off with a disclaimer: I don't know anything about Star Realms, the game system world this story is apparently set in. The book was recommended on social media as a fun science fiction story, and I picked it for that reason. This book was tremendously fun. It doesn't take itself too seriously, the author concerning himself more with just telling a good story. The two main characters are well developed and likable, with some real growth as the tale progresses. The plot was not o [...]

Lots of fun and well thought plot Never heard of Star Realms until this book was given as a suggested read, so I had no background to draw upon. Stands alone easily! Well thought out plot and very engaging characters. My 2 biggies for a book. Having played Shadowrun a d Star Wars RPGs, I had the feeling of being right with the characters in their situations. The character decisions based upon the situation they faced at the time they made it felt real and the best of bad options. I really liked [...]

Excellent read if a little longI really enjoyed this book. The realization of the source. An excellent card game. Was amazing, my only slight problem was that it felt a little drawn out and could have been tighter.But over all well worth the read if your looking for some easy reading SciFi that focuses on character interaction.

Jon Del Arroz has put the Opera back into Space Opera! Action, aliens, adorable AI, intrigue, and a bit of romance all combine for a delightful page turner that will leave you wanting more!But let me go back a minute. This book is based off the game Star Realms, a game I have never, ever played in my life. No familiarity with it at all. Good news-- you don't need to know a thing about the game to enjoy this story. It's possible that such familiarity might give the reader added insight, or perhap [...]

Space Opera and tie in! How can you not like this! I just added this to my reading list on the recommendation of a couple of friends that liked Del Arroz's space opera work, and I was not disappointed. I would think it would be difficult to write a tie in novel in someone else's established universe, but this author did a great job. And as a plus, it is a Kindle Unlimited title! I liked this book and I do think it was worth the download.

Big fan of the card game and I was excited to see a novel based on the game. Great Sci-fi Story with cool references to the card game. The romance between the main characters seemed a little pressed.

Just dreadful. The story and characters are extremely basic, and the writing is clumsy. Inclusion of a few Proper Nouns from the card game does nothing to improve matters.

A really enjoyable science fiction book. Gave me that feeling the old Star Wars movies did, when there were deeper characters and more romance.

I read a short story by this author in an anthology. I decided to check out some more of his works. I was not aware that this book is based on a game. Books based on games can be ify - this one is no different. Perhaps if I was aware of the game before I read the book, it would have helped me enjoy this book better. Ok book but not one that encourages me to read more.

I made a point of reading Star Realms: Rescue Run without knowing a smidge about the Star Realms deck-building game. I’m an ex-computer-game developer and a hardcore gamer (MTG was my game/drug of choice for many years,) so after I write this review I’m going to dive into learning the game behind the book.I read SR:RR as a standalone sci-fi space opera and I loved it. The protagonists Joan and Dario are living beings with interesting, complex agendas, distinctive speech, and personalities th [...]
