Stars Beckon Call
While others gamble for their lives, Jason Joval is gambling his away...
In a far-future dystopian world where the chips are heavy and the House always wins, citizens of the Mid-Eastern Cone roll the dice for their very lives. Honing his skills in order to extend his lackluster life, Jason hits big and becomes famous overnight as the longest living man in history. But what does a man with no passion for life do with all of that time? What is the point of the chips when they neither have value nor meaning? For one wayward, lost soul, the gambling floor becomes a stage on which his altered state of being plays out for the world to see.
Under the watchful eyes of the shadowy soldiers of the Patriarchy government, Jason retraces the missteps of a man who's quite unsure if he's ready to fold. Can a man ever truly win when the cards are stacked against him? Is there any way to escape from the glittering lights of the gambling floor? With a hot hand and an eye for Lady Luck, Jason Joval doubles down on the bet of a lifetime.

Easily a new classic
Normally I either power read through an entire book or read it over a month as a casual read. This story captured me from the first chapter, I had to force myself to stop halfway through it to digest the concepts and story. Upon restarting it the next day I found that I was even re-reading a couple of chapters from before where I left off just to refresh my memory so I did not miss a single nuance of the story.
I loved it!!!
From the concept to your descriptive writing, you had me hooked from the beginning. Yes, space-themed novels appeal to me, but I am sure anyone could find something they love about this book.
The Plot Thickens
I loved the book! The storyline was great. The characters are believable. I really liked the characters of Jason, Seattle, and Tinker. Mu-monk was absolutely the best character for me! I can't wait till the next book. I really hope this is the start of a great series.
