James Lovegrove – Firefly: Big Damn Hero


The first original novel tying into the critically acclaimed and much-missed Firefly series from creator Joss Whedon

The Battle of Serenity Valley was the turning point that led the Independents to their defeat at the hands of the Alliance. Yet the Browncoats had held the valley for weeks against all odds, before being ordered to lay down their arms. Command stated they refused to send in airpower because the ground war was “too hot”. But the soldiers who were there insist that was not true….

While picking up a new cargo on Persephone, Captain Malcolm Reynolds is kidnapped by a bunch of embittered veteran Browncoats who suspect him of sabotaging the Independents during the war. As the rest of the crew struggle to locate him, Mal is placed on trial for his life, fighting compelling evidence that someone did indeed betray them to the Alliance all those years ago. As old comrades and old rivals crawl out of the woodwork, Mal must prove his innocence, but his captors are desperate and destitute, and will settle for nothing less than the culprits blood.

clout true

I truly enjoyed this trip back to the VERSE. In The author brought in backstory, advanced characters like Shepherd Book, used iconic dialogue from the series, and told a fun tale. If you are a fan of Firefly, you will enjoy. I eagerly await the next installment.

Zo Washburne : Preacher, don’t the Bible have some pretty specific things to say about killing?

Shepherd Book : Quite specific. It is, however, somewhat fuzzier on the subject of kneecaps.
