Liam Kincaidabout this book: As a child, I loved science fiction (still do), Asimov, Clarke, Dickson, Del Rey, et al, but especially Robert Heinlein. The thing I loved the most was that his characters were intelligent, self-reliant, good-hearted, and determined. No magic solutions for them -- they had to think hard and work hard for what they achieved. But, most of all, they had FUN! I wanted to write a story in that tradition, a story that would inspire young people to look inside themselves and find resources they didn't know they had, to live life with purpose and joy.
But there's more: I also wanted to add the camaraderie and loyalty of Star Trek and Firefly to the mix. I always loved the way those crews stuck together, putting personal differences aside to accomplish the greater good.
Operation Break Iron is about a group of young people in dire circumstances who band together to attempt a daring rescue from the impenetrable Iron Fortress, the very heart of the Seph Imperium. When they start, they have little hope of success, never dreaming they would discover the darkest of the Imperium's secrets -- a secret that could bring the Imperium to its knees. Even though each of the characters has his or her own special abilities, it's going to take the whole crew working together to attempt the impossible.
Operation Break Iron is suitable for readers of all ages, but especially older children and young adults. It's written in a simple, direct style, but never talks down to or disrespects the reader.
Above all, it's a happy book. In the course of writing, editing, and proofing, I've read Operation Break Iron many times, and it made me laugh out loud every time, and every time I didn't want it to end. I believe that my readers will feel the same.
