Taking readers on an enthralling journey from the safety of our own planet to the unknown depths of deep space, the Wings of Steele series’ first novel, ‘Destination Unknown’ is resonating with readers around the world.
Largo, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/12/2013 -- Most new authors use their first book as an opportunity to simply test the literary waters. However, in the case of Florida author Jeffrey Burger, his debut novel has enjoyed almost instant best-selling success. Topping #39 in the Science Fiction genre, Burger’s ‘Wings of Steele’ series show serious promise.
It’s easy to see why. The first instalment, ‘Destination Unknown’, offers a gripping literary experience that is captivating readers around the world.
An epic science fiction action-adventure that reaches from the surface of our familiar planet and the safety of terra firma, to the dark, vast expanse of deep space and distant star systems.
Jack Steele is an ex big-city cop that left the department after losing a friend in the line of duty. Recovering from a tough divorce, he reinvents himself with a love of flying and restructures his life as a pilot for hire. Accompanied by his ever-present German Shepherd, Fritz, Jack will fly almost anything, anywhere, shuttling new & used planes for clients all over the world. He had never been a Boy Scout, but he is a man who likes to stay prepared and in control of whatever life throws at him. But nothing could have prepared Jack and his co-pilot, Brian Carter, for the carnage when life suddenly goes drastically and violently sideways... in a direction and magnitude that no one could have ever anticipated. Their lives swept into chaos as wanted men, it seems like every alphabet named agency on the planet is hunting for them. Their only option is to run... but to where?
As the author explains, he is deeply invested in his work.
“I fuse my skills of writing and graphic design to offer a ‘total’ experience for the reader. This really allows me to put my imagination on paper and drag the reader deep into the world I’ve created,” says Burger.
Continuing, “It’s certainly working. At one point my book sat at #1849 on Amazon, out of all books. It’s great to see my work changing the lives of others.”
Burger’s latter statement is certainly not hype. In fact, since its release, the book has garnered a consistent string of rave reviews.
“I was thoroughly surprised at how wonderful this story was turning out to be. Full of excitement and action. Good guys vs bad guys, and yes very much like COWBOYS IN SPACE!!!! What a hoot!” says K. Caid, who reviewed the book on Amazon.
Another reader, Paul K, was equally as impressed. He said, “I like sci-fi military so Wings of Steele caught my eye and I purchased it. I give it a one word review - Excellent! If I have to include a negative it would be that so far there is only one book from Mr. Burger. Side note to Mr. Burger: Please do NOT find something else to occupy your spare hours until you add another book for us to enjoy.”
With so much success on his hands, Burger has recently announced that the second instalment is in the works. Aptly titled ‘Flight of Freedom’, fans are urged to keep an eye on the author’s website for any official news.
