Outsystem (The Intrepid Saga #1) by M.D. Cooper is a space opera far into the future with a kick ass female lead character and fun space toys. Lots of action, adventure, high tech space toys and weapons, cool things that is fun to believe could be real, intrigue, suspense, touch of romance, and futuristic AI interface in your head! How cool is that? I found it a lot of fun, I got the audio narration so I could do things and read at other times. Narration was good and added to the story. Will follow this series. ( )

I freely chose to review this ARC and am so glad I did as it's one terrific story! Outsystem is about seventy-two year old Major Tanis Richards who was demoted for her part in an unfortunate battle. Labeled the Butcher of Toro, she had hope to regain her rank and finally get off of Sol where her and her AI could finally enjoy their down time and civilian life. The year is the 42nd century and Mars 1 is inhabited with hundreds of beings to populate the planet. Tanis is temporally assigned to head security on the GSS Intrepid and she immediately sees holes and redundancy. Not surprising, she makes a lot of enemies when she eliminates people only to discover a secret plot to destroy her ship and billions of people in the process of only doing their job! ( )

Michael Cooper's Outsystem is exactly what one would expect of a science-fiction novel, and more! The militaristic theme and subtle romance gives Outsystem enough to appeal to a wide variety of readers.

Tanis Richards is a strong and unmovable character whose tough attitude gives this story the right kind of edge. Not only is she intelligent, but she's on top of her game and the best in the field of security. The fact that Tanis is a woman with a high rank and respectable position speaks volumes about the relevance Outsystem has in this modern day, even though the novel is set light years from now. There are plenty of characters to move the story along, but once all their roles are defined it's easy to keep track of who's who. Being that there are so many characters introduced it doesn't always seem like there's enough interactions between them. The action actually outshines the secondary characters who journey with Tanis.

The plot is action-packed and filled with mystery and suspense. The energetic plot escalates to an unexpected cliff-hanger. With all that Tanis deals with in Outsystem, from violent threats on her life and the ship she's on, the Intrepid, to dealing with a tarnished reputation, it's believable that her story isn't over.

Outsystem is a serious read with humorous undertones. The fun is only half of what makes this sci-fi mystery an enjoyable and noteworthy read!

This book is dedicated to my children, born and unborn, who will inhabit the future far longer than I. May your future never be utopian, but always struggling toward perfection. May it never be idealistic, but always founded on ideals.

A young sapling exploded beside Tanis and she dove for cover, scampering away as splinters flew in every direction.

Book description
Haiku summary

Major Richards needs to get out of the Sol System. Demoted by the military and hung out to dry, the media labels her the Butcher of Toro. Despite her soiled record, Tanis still one of the best military counterinsurgency officers in the Terran Space Force. They need her to find the terrorists responsible for trying to destroy the GSS Intrepid, a massive interstellar colony ship in the final phases of construction at the Mars Outer Shipyards. It'll be her ticket out of the Sol system, but Tanis discovers she is up against more than mercenaries and assassins. Major corporations and governments have a vested interest in ensuring the Intrepid never leaves Sol, ultimately pitting Tanis against factions inside her own military. With few friends left, Tanis will need to fight for her life to get "outsystem."… (more)
