    • Abstract:
      Summary: In the tradition of Star Wars, a galaxy-hopping space adventure about a galactic kingdom bent on control and the young misfit who must find the power within before it's too late. Cade Sura holds the future of the galaxy in his hands: the ultimate weapon that will bring total peace. He didn't ask for it, he doesn't want it, and there's no worse choice to wield it in all of space, but if he doesn't, everyone's totally screwed. The evil Praxis kingdom is on the cusp of having every star system under its control, and if that happens, there'll be no contesting their cruel reign. Especially if its fanatical overlord, Ga Halle, manages to capture Cade and snag the all-powerful weapon for herself. Cade can't hide from Praxis, and he can't run from the destiny that's been shoved into his hands. So he only has one option: He has to fight. Cade's not going to let destiny send him on a suicide run, though. With some help from his friends--rebels and scoundrels alike--Cade's going to use this weapon to chart a new destiny for the galaxy, and for himself. He just has to do so before everyone around him discovers that he's a complete and total fraud. Blending the space operatics of Star Wars and the swagger of Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Star Renegades is a galaxy-hopping adventure that blasts its way from seedy spacer bars to sacred temples guarded by deadly creatures--all with a cast of misfit characters who have nowhere to go and nothing to lose.

Booklist Reviews 2017 December #1

Rai brothers Cade and Tristan Sura are elite warriors dedicated to keeping peace. Tristan is destined to become the Paragon, wielder of a legendary weapon that can protect civilization from an evil empire threatening to take over the galaxy. But when Tristan dies, Cade is stuck with the weapon—and saving civilization. Problem is, he doesn't want the job. Moreci's debut novel is a delightful mash-up of genre tropes: a reluctant hero, swashbuckling space adventure, martial arts, an evil empire, a scrappy band of outcasts, and a sentient killer robot. It's a loving ode to the science fiction Moreci grew up with. The pacing is fast and exciting, strong on action and generous with humor. Moreci's writing style could stand to be a bit more sophisticated; he doesn't fully adapt to prose from his beloved work in comics (Roche Limit, 2015). But he clearly has fun telling this story, and his joy is infectious; fans of his work in comics and the online Star Wars community will be looking for this one. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

Moreci (the Roche Limit comics series) delivers a story that recalls his work for the Star Wars franchise: it brims with exotic locales, weird aliens, an evil empire, and a Jedilike hero with a cohort of misfits. Cade Sura and his older brother, Tristan, spent 10 years studying to be Rai warriors, planning to defend the Galactic Alliance from Praxis and its evil Queen Ga Halle. Certain that Tristan is the legendary Paragon, their teacher, Ser Jorken, sends them to recover an ancient weapon called the Rokura—but a Praxis assassin murders Tristan. Cade, escaping with the Rokura, is now assumed to be the Paragon, but he's not reconciled to that role, and neither is the sentient artifact. On the run from Praxis forces, Cade assembles a crew of oddballs who set off to find the real Paragon and take out the War Hammer, a planet-killing Praxian space ship. Moreci's sci-fi adventure delivers plenty of action for fans willing to overlook the unoriginal story. Agent: Jason Yarn, Jason Yarn Literary. (Jan.)
