    Classic Firefly! I found myself wishing toward the beginning that Inara had more to do, since it seemed like she was being reduced to the resident taxi driver, but there really wasn't much call for her to do anything else (a problem when you have so many characters). I appreciated a de...

    Well, we no longer need to find a Firefly-like novels or series, do we? We have it already! The real deal, in fact, not some sorry copycats. 3.5 stars rounded up. I still have a few issues: some of the plot devices and the dialogue from Wash (should be funnier) but the gorram book ...

    I'm a Firefly fan and was interested when I heard of these novels (yes, another due out in early 2019). Will say that the vocabulary and timbre of the character is well done. The plot lines don't introduce anything *too* new but for the delving into Mal's pre-war past. Some of the mem...

    I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.The nitty-gritty: An outstanding tie-in to the beloved TV series, this book is shiny in every way possible. ?I have a problem...

    I LOVE Firefly, so I was thrilled when I heard there would be novels. I was even more excited when I started and realized it was set before the movie (which I love as well). This had some great things and not so great things. What I enjoyed: * backstory on Mal even if it wasn't any...

    4.5 stars. Well written. The authors obviously are thoroughly acquainted with the world ('Verse) and the characters. I was afraid Mal, Zoe, and the rest would not be themselves, but caricatures. Thankfully, all the characters behave the way they would have in the TV series. The dial...

    Back in the ?verse! Got some back story on Mal, and a great new adventure. Probably best read with some idea what Firefly is, but I do, so for me it was 5 stars all the way! ...

    Now the question for me is this: Are these going to be hit and miss like the Torchwood and Doctor Who books (Yeah, I read a couple of the Torchwood books. So sue me. I have a deep adoration for Ianto Jones and Jack Harkness) or national treasures that capture the essence of the origina...

    "Well, look-at-this! Seems we got here just in the nick of time. What does that make us?" "Big damn heroes, sir." "Ain't we just?" I am a patient miser who almost never buys books new, preferring to wait until used copies hit the market. But when I learned that there was a Firefly...

    It's been almost sixteen years since Firefly was cancelled by FOX, and honestly I'm still not over it. As a person that lives in a reality where Serenity does not exist, I was more than eager to dive back into the black with the crew that started my love for space opera and ragtag crew...

    As a huge fan of the show, I wanted to love this book. However, the magic of Firefly remains elusive. I caught glimpses here and there, enough to warrant 3 stars, but it is far from recaptured. ...

    "Is it a good life or a bad one? The answer doesn't matter.It's the only life we have." Oh, my fractured Browncoat heart. How long have I been saying there should be full-length Firefly books?! SO GORRAMN LONG!! To say this first tie-in Firefly novel was long-awaited by the ...

    Some of this really did feel like true blue Firefly, fully equipped with Whedon banter and turn of phrase and characterization, but so much of it was.. dull. Slow. And the ending was so predictable it pained me. The only upside is that I think I'll be bingeing the show over the holi...

    ?Curse your sudden, but inevitable betrayal? All Firefly fans will probably remember this quote from the show, and I currently feel just like Wash?s plant-eating dinosaur must have felt, when it was betrayed by a meat-eating dinosaur. Yes! It was a tie-in novel, and I have...

    On the book jacket (AND the title page), it says Big Damn Hero Firefly by James Lovegrove. Original story concept by Nancy Holder. In the acknowledgments section at the back of the book, Lovegrove thanks Holder for "letting me pick up her ball and run with it". The next page About the ...

    This would have been a 4 star read if it wasn?t for that phoned in and so so typical ending. The beginning got off to a slow start, meeting up with Captain Mal again but as the plot developed I was intrigued. Unfortunately, once we meet his past love interest things just follow...

    This sci fi western is entertaining! Most enjoyable being reunited with the 9 aboard Serenity. Must-read for Browncoat fans. Highly-recommended for all readers, even those new to the Firefly universe. ...

    Parts of this recaptured the magic of the tv show whereas parts are very cliched. The ending was way too simple, which knocked it down a star. Definitely a fanboy read. If you havent watched the t.v. show or the film, then give it a miss. ...

    I never ever rate books I haven't read, let alone those that haven't been released, but some purple-belly gave this one star and I will not have that, no sir. That said, holy shit! More Firefly? More of the best dysfunctional space family? Yeeeees!! ...

    To answer the first question I had when I found out about this book, it is after the series but before Serenity. I thought the characterization were spot on. There are some slow spots but it?s not so bad when you?re spending time with characters you?ve missed. I am hoping that th...

    Like reading an episode. If you are a fan, you'll love this. Filled with the usual shenanigans, bad luck and Mal getting punched a lot! There's history, references to our leads past and loads of wonderful character moments. I loved it. ...

    If you miss firefly pick this novel up. Its like another episode. Beside being well written. The characters are perfect, and we learn a more about Shepard Book. The biggest mystery of the series. It?s a swift read and captures every essence of what I love about firefly. I will be re...

    It was really good at the beginning. Well it had to, it was a Firefly novel. As a Browncoat, I'm always searching for new Firefly content, and official novel was the big dream (well, a dream, because the big dream is the TRILOGY obviously). Also, I liked the pitch : Mal is kidnapped, t...

    I promised to update when I finished. Well I just finished and I wish I wasn't ?. Wow what a gorram great story, but I'm devastated that I reached the end and it feels like the end of the show all over again. *sigh* but if you love Firefly you'll love this story ? ...
