Saga of the Cosmic Heroes
- Traumatising content
Set in approximately the 29th century AD (or 3rd century UC) in a setting where humanity is united under an interstellar Federation past its zenith. The story follows a young Victoria Happ-Schwarzenberger through a first-person narrative as she follows in her father's footsteps and enlists in the Metropolitan Space Navy in events that will change her course forever.
Joining the narrative is Li Chou, known as the Madame Scarface. She serves as a lieutenant under a pirate republic ruled by her ruthless adoptive father nestled in the outer hinges of Federation authority. And Alexandra Descartes-Dolz, a colonial spacenoid with the aspirations of changing the decadent Federation's injustices. This saga tells of their intertwining destinies and the struggles they face along the way.
For the release schedule, I intend to aim for a Friday/weekend release at 8:06 PM EST/EDT.

Very few authors put as much effort as JK does to a story. Not mentioning the kids of art he shelled out to give his readers the best experience possible.
You would be remiss if you didn't give it a try just based on that alone!
This writer has a lot of potential, the dialog is engaging and well written. I like the idea of living in a 21 kilometer spacecraft and the characters are likeable.
I liked the illustrations provided by the author's friend, and military sci fi/space opera is a very enteraining genre. The only minor nitpick I would offer is that the prose could use a little more description, it is sometimes a little hard to follow what is going on when all we get is dialog.
Overall, I think this writing has a lot of potential and would recommend reading it if you don't mind something that could use a little polish. I think that this would work as a graphic novel or as a script though, could be really good when put through a second draft.
I've been reading this from day one, and I am very happy with how the story developed. The characters are fantastic, and the world really feels alive. You have a clear picture of things as you're reading, so I really enjoy the style. It's not too complicated, and the flow is great.
Grammar's good with occasional mistakes. If you liked LoTGH read this, you won't regret it.
Saga of the Cosmic Heroes is the tale of two friends trying to join the space military, a look into the life of a traumatized child who has lost everyone they loved, and a history book-esque recount of humanity's space exploits.
First of all, style. Just as this fiction tells three different "stories", there are three different styles to go along with it. They aren't too different from one another, but the grim, shaky tone of chapter 0 is a definite contrast with the playful, happy tone of chapters 1 and 2, which is a definite contrast with the epic, historical tone of chapter 3. All of these are executed wonderfully, and I would like to give kudos to the author for managing to juggle all these different styles in one book.
Now, story. The "primary" plot seems to be a space military adventure featuring Vicky and Kiki, young and starry-eyed (hehe, get it?) best friends from a futuristic earth. However, as the author says at the end of chapter 2, it looks as if chapters 3-8 deviate from this story in order to tell the history of humanity in the 26th century. This is a subjective thing, but some readers might find this shift jarring, so just a warning there.
I personally didn't, especially because of how chapter 2 kinda of soft-transitioned to that style fairly well, but I'll still miss the inclusion of our dynamic duo. The two long-name gals play off of each other wonderfully, and every interaction they have brings a smile to my face. However, hands-down my favorite character is Vivi the roomba ;)
Overall, if you're looking for a sci-fi with extensive lore and brilliant characters that will make you come back for more, maybe give this a read! :)
Too often when I read Science Fiction novels I find myself having to put them down because I'm overwhelmed by endless descriptions of technology that I genuinely don't care about.
With this one, I was actually able to get into the story because I wasn't forced to read about how many ion cannons there are on each side of the ship. There are interesting characters with a lot of personality, and a story that makes sense without having to infodump every other page. Right from the start you're being thrown into an interesting story, and are shown characters that you'll actually find yourself caring about very early on.
The grammar is consistently great, and the author has a style that stands apart from everything else I've read on this site. I don't have anything but praise in this regard. When I first started reading this I came across a few mistakes here and there, but the author has since gone back and rewritten a lot of his earlier chapters to make them better.
If you like Legend of the Galactic Heroes, and space operas in general, you're definitely not going to want to miss this novel. The author also takes the time to include pretty decent illustrations within the chapters, which I find to be a very nice addition.
