“A perfect blend of science fiction and alternate history”
He’s abducted by aliens to the planet Vost.
He’s saving up for his fare home.
But he’s got the small matter of a planetary apocalypse to deal with first…
In 1977 a New York Cab driver Mike Redolfo is abducted by aliens after being mistaken for a renegade scientist. Meanwhile, back in 1944 a mysterious man and his Jewish fiancée are fleeing across Nazi-occupied Europe.
Redolfo tries to keep a low profile on his new world whilst earning his fare home, but unwittingly gets involved with a shady gang of alien criminals, inadvertently bringing the planet to the brink of catastrophe.
As the link between the timelines becomes clear, Redolfo must discover secrets from the past that may hold the key to saving the planet.
If you like The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse 5, and Frank Herbert’s Dune, you’ll love this gripping and entertaining sci-fi mystery thriller.
Space Taxis by A & H Frosh is a really entertaining novel that mixed science fiction and historical fiction. I thought that was such a unique concept that I absolutely had to read this one.
This story is told in dual timelines. I think this was so well done. I think both stories are intriguing on their own, so reading them paralleled together.
The characters are so well written. This story is totally character driven, which is my favorite kind of novel. The authors created characters that I cared for, and was invested in from the start.
Space Taxis is a compelling novel. It is such a unique combo of genres and so well written. Easy five stars. Check this one out.
