Jak Phoenix and his partner, Baxter, are a couple of low-budget space pirates traversing the galaxy in a rundown ship in dire need of repair – when they undertake what appears to be a routine salvage mission that ultimately proves to be anything but...unbeknownst to the interstellar hijackers, an evil mastermind – who just happens to be an old enemy of theirs – has been surreptitiously amassing a secret army in a far corner of the galaxy, and a set of serendipitous circumstances soon shoulders Jak and Baxter with the task of saving not only an endangered race of aliens, but also the entire galaxy...quite a tall order for someone who’d normally rather kick back with a cold one than stick his neck out for anyone...

With unique, vivid characters and a compelling central plotline, Jak Phoenix is quite the entertaining read. In skillful fashion, author Matt Williams has crafted an enjoyable tale of interstellar adventure sure to please fans of well-told Sci-Fi/Fantasy yarns. While the essence of his narrative is hardly original, Williams does a commendable job of breathing fresh, creative new life into a rather familiar morality tale – particularly by featuring a protagonist who’s nothing if not the quintessential anti-hero. As such, readers are sure to find Jak Phoenix anything but dull, thanks in large part to Williams’ quite fertile imagination. A satisfying read.
