The Icarus Hunt

We rated this book:


Gregory Roarke left the bounty hunting business behind after it cost him his left arm and almost his partner’s life. To make ends meet, Gregory works as a bartender and occasionally runs planetary trailblazing jobs with his partner, Selene. After losing the bartending gig, Gregory is approached by two men needing a planetary survey. Reluctantly, he and Selene take the work, only to be pulled back into a paid bounty job. The job turns out to be connected to a long-unsettled score, and Gregory is eager for the chance at payback.

The Icarus Plot by best-selling author Timothy Zahn is a fantastic non-Star Wars sci-fi adventure. Even though it shares characters, places, and technology of a previous Zahn storyline, The Icarus Plot can be read as a stand-alone novel. Zahn’s book reads much like a hard-boiled detective story, with a down-on-his-luck bounty hunter taking a job to pay the bills and settle a score.

Zahn’s exciting action sequences, troubled characters, and attention to detail make this story stand out. There is also a mystery hidden inside this action-adventure story. This would make an excellent read for space junkies looking for a non-military interplanetary adventure.
