Five thousand years ago in a savage assault, someone tried to annihilate humanity. They almost succeeded. Now, millennia after the First Stellar Civilization’s cataclysmic destruction, humans have clawed their way back from the brink of extinction and returned to the stars. Massive riches in the form of forgotten tech lie hidden in the ruins of the First Civ’s dead, shattered worlds. For a prospector with luck and the right coordinates, they are ripe for the taking. Holtz Mitsumi has neither. Down and out from a failed expedition, Mitsumi allows an enigmatic stranger to talk him into one more prospecting run. After scraping together a crew, Mitsumi embarks with high hopes. But nothing is as it seems and this run may be his last.

Meet the Author:

Kevin W. Bates was born in Berkeley, California and, with the exception of a couple year stint in Sydney Australia and a study abroad program in Japan, was raised there. In his Martin Luther King Jr. High and Berkeley High School years, Kevin developed a life-long fascination with science fiction (and, oddly, nuclear weapons) and a tendency to day dream. He discovered early that among the greatest joys in life is the thrill of losing yourself in a gripping space adventure soaring across the galaxy. Raised on classic science fiction authors such as Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, and Ray Bradbury, Kevin took up writing science fiction to provide the same mind expanding thrills he enjoyed from those authors and more contemporary ones like Alastair Reynolds, Iain M. Banks, David Brin and Neal Stephenson.

My Review: 

Prospector's Run is the first book I had the pleasure of reading by Kevin W Bates. It, also, begins his series called Artifact. I have to admit that I am not a huge fan of science fiction. However, this book gives me another reason why I should go outside my comfort zone from time to time to read something new. I am so glad that I gave this one a try or I would have missed out on a good read. 

Prospector's Run takes readers on an interesting journey. I was taken to quite a different world. There are planets, aliens, and spaceships, oh my! I felt like I was on the journey with the characters. I must say it was quite the adventure. I never knew what was going to happen next. There were a few twists and turns that I would have never imagined. It was fun and entertaining from the start to finish. There is some humor included to a few scenes that was a nice bonus.   
Prospector's Run is getting four and a half stars from me. I would be interested in reading the next book in the Artifact series, Dawn’s Reach, to see what happens next. I would recommend this one for readers who enjoy reading books from the science fiction genre. I would, also, even recommend it to those who are looking for something new, unique and refreshing. I believe it is definitely worth a read. 

I received Prospector's Run from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
