Cover of Gingezel 1 : The Limit  sci fi novel Gingezel

5* Review at Barnes and Noble:
"Where Do I Begin? This is like nothing I have ever read before. It is Sci Fi but no space battles or Alien monsters. It is character driven. Characters that you really care about who just happen to live and work in other galaxies. It is hard to explain why I am enjoying this series so much but I am well into the third book and still loving it.

Warning: Each book is a cliff hanger so be prepared to end up buying all four of them like I did."

Review at Smashwords:
“It’s always a good sign when I look for excuses to read a book instead of work. I found that with this book. I didn't want to put it down and my only disappointment was to get to the end and then have to wait for the next book to read what was going to happen next.”

Kael, what the hell were you doing wandering off like that?
“Kael, what the hell were you doing wandering off like that? Do you have any idea how hard it has been to trace you?”
“I’ve been on vacation, Ari. My first vacation in three years. Remember? I didn’t know I had to check in daily.” The only way to deal with Ari in this mood was to not back down a millimeter.
“Yeah, well we had to contact your family, then systematically go through all the hotels on Gingezel since you weren’t at the one they thought you were in.”
“Tough. You found me. So what’s worth the trouble?” If those idiots on Drezvir were having trouble with maintenance she was not helping out and that was that.
But Ari wasn’t looking at her. He was looking at someone else in the room with him.


There is a fine line between pushing the limits of technology and pushing your luck. Some people think Dr. Mitra Kael, power systems engineer, crossed that line with her new hybrid reactor installed on the remote mining planet Drezvir. Mitra doesn't agree and doesn't care. All she wants to do is never see Drezvir again. She’s headed for vacation on the ultimate pleasure planet Gingezel.

How much was she pushing her luck?

Science fiction by the Canadian husband and wife scientist author team Donald S. Hall, PhD., and Judi Suni Hall, PhD.
