Mind Raider:
The Kalamatra Rebellion Book 1
by S. M. Blooding and P. K. Tyler

Mind Raider: The Kalamatra Rebellion Book 1 by S. M. Blooding and P. K. Tyler

Humanity has conquered the black, but not their own inherent greed. The four systems surrounding Kalamatra Station provide members of the Elite class with everything they could want: mined minerals, abundant food, and an entire system to call their own, a place of paradise and riches. But for some, that isn’t enough.
Terrans and common spacers suffer under untenable work conditions and crumbling, radioactive stations while the Elite thrive. Now the commoners are threatening to revolt.
With the four systems on the verge of civil war, the Codex Syndicate’s covert intelligence network learns of an Elite weapon designed to alter the common people to their genetic core. The Elite have planned to test deployment on the mutinous Red Sky colony and force their compliance.
Codex Syndicate agent Keva Duste is an ex-military, engineered human with a score to settle. Together with a renegade space captain, an Elite refugee, and two sentient AIs, she must race to locate the weapon and stop the genocide of the human race before it can begin. Can Keva save Red Sky from destruction before the Elite turn this weapon on the rest of the settlements? And if she does, will she ignite a revolution?

My Review
I received this book in return for an honest review.

By Lynda Dickson
Dominion Rising is a collection of 23 Fantasy and Science Fiction novels by 26 different authors. This review is for Mind Raider, the first book in the new Kalamatra Rebellion series by S. M. Blooding and P. K. Tyler.
The book is set in the Black System, comprised of four separate systems, at the center of which is the Kalamatra Station. This world is inhabited by different classes: the Elite, the Families, the military, the spacers, and the terrans, each with their own physical and mental attributes.
Keva is an engineered soldier who is left to die for disobeying a direct order but is rescued and recruited by the Codex Syndicate. Her current mission is to find out everything she can about a bioweapon called Batch D-65. She enlists the help of her AI ILO who is developing a personality of her own, Captain Hale Reeve and his spaceship the Allorian, an Elite woman who constantly surprises her (in a good way), and a bunch of rag-tag hangers-on. Will they be able to locate the weapon before it's too late?
This is a rollicking space adventure, not my usual kind of read but entertaining nevertheless. It's full of likable characters and strong female leads. Coming from a science background, I really enjoyed the scientific aspects of the story. But I would like to have seen a bit more romance! While this book concludes this part of the story and we do get some answers, there is so much more I still want to know. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
Warnings: coarse language, sexual references, graphic violence.
