The first original novel tying into the critically acclaimed and much-missed Firefly series from creator Joss Whedon

The Battle of Serenity Valley was the turning point that led the Independents to their defeat at the hands of the Alliance. Yet the Browncoats had held the valley for weeks against all odds, before being ordered to lay down their arms. Command stated they refused to send in airpower because the ground war was "too hot". But the soldiers who were there insist that was not true....

While picking up a new cargo on Persephone, Captain Malcolm Reynolds is kidnapped by a bunch of embittered veteran Browncoats who suspect him of sabotaging the Independents during the war. As the rest of the crew struggle to locate him, Mal is placed on trial for his life, fighting compelling evidence that someone did indeed betray them to the Alliance all those years ago. As old comrades and old rivals crawl out of the woodwork, Mal must prove his innocence, but his captors are desperate and destitute, and will settle for nothing less than the culprit’s blood.

Shiny Addition to the Firefly Universe
I didn't even know these were a thing until I stumbled upon it, and I'm so glad I did! Like most people, I hated the fact the series was ended only after one season, and short of a movie that's all we got. But now, along comes this series.

Set between the end of the TV show and before the events of the movies, James Lovegrove delivers a classic Firefly tale, while peppering in lots of character backstory and intrigue.

In this, Captain Mal Reynolds has been kidnapped. By whom, the crew don't know, but you can bet your pretty floral bonnet they're not going to let that slide. But first... there's the issue of the crates of highly explosive, highly volatile mining supplies they've agreed to deliver for Badger.

This book fits in perfectly with the established 'verse, and I can't wait to grab the rest! The narrator, James Anderson Foster, delivered a believable performance that even though I'm at on almost intimately familiar terms with each of the characters as portrayed on TV, still left me with no doubt who the crew were.
