Take the Star Road

Nineteen-year-old Steve Maxwell just wants to get his feet on the star road to find a better homeworld. By facing down Lotus Tong thugs, he earns an opportunity to become an apprentice on a merchant spaceship, leaving the corruption and crime of Earth behind. Sure, he needs to prove himself to an older, tight-knit crew, but how bad can it be if he keeps his head down and the decks clean?

He never counted on the interstellar trade routes having their own problems, from local wars to plagues of pirates - and the jade in his luggage is hotter than a neutron star. Steve's left a world of troubles behind, only to find a galaxy of them ahead....

TAKE THE STAR ROAD is the first novel in Peter Grant's popular five-volume Maxwell Saga. Narrated by Bob Allen, the audiobook is 9 hours and 26 minutes. Castalia House will be releasing the entire Maxwell Saga in audio and paperback.

You've been busy... where do you find the time?

It has nothing to do with me. It's the assistants and volunteers who are helping build Castle Castalia. We're still in the process of getting everything up to speed.

Okay, I bought this also. I had Take the Star Road on my list of books to read, a list that's pretty long these days. Having the audiobook means I'll hear it soon, probably next after I finish the current one.

It would be nice if you could overcome that issue that prevents the "buy ebook, get audio for less" deal. Perhaps the next time you and Jeff are in the same room you could tell him how you admire how he cuts his jib, and how that new skull polish is really working for him.

Been waiting for this! Peter Grant is the best.

I might be having some kind of deja vu, but I could swear I read that story already.

I enjoy the series as a young adult sci fi version of Hornblower without the Harrington overblown book length.

As an adult who was in the military, I keep waiting for him to get his papers from his wife. They guy is never posted home except for max effort schools.

Hi Mr. Day, I was just wondering how keen Castalia is on satire. Back in December, I submitted a parody of everything wrong with the SJW ideology, and thought it might be up your alley. Would Castalia also be in favor of more apolitical satire? Thanks. :)
