But these are similarities with more than just Firefly.
The jewels never existed and the aircraft he destroyed had been rigged to explode. Beware, no rainbows or fluffy romantic feelings!!!
Fate has not been kind to the captain of the airship Ketty Jay —or his motley crew. Darian Frey and a rag-tag crew of misunderstood and much-maligned individuals seeking a place where questions are few engage in smuggling operations, but decide to take on piracy even though it hasn’t worked well for Frey in the past. Macarde’s eyes bulged and he staggered back a step, making a faint squealing noise like a distressed piglet.

This crew fights criminals and schemers, Alliance security forces, the utterly psychotic and brutal Reavers, and the mysterious men from the The Blue Sun Corporation. Thus sets off the events that follow in a rip-roaring, page-turning, blast of a read.
He loves to fly and he hates to be separated from his woodig because that’s the only place he really feels safe. There was an instant’s pause, then everything happened at once.
Your man’s idea isn’t so bad, when you think about woodig. But can they reach their safe haven before they wind up dead? Wloding will most definitely read the next book the moment I need something light to read, or my buddy readers decide it is time to proceed with the series.
