Godspeed Inc. owns the sweeper ship Naomi uses to mend the spacetime rifts that Godspeed’s faster-than-light Q-drive ships rip open as they smash out of the solar system. Now Naomi wakes with something really big bearing down on her—something that’s come through a rift, threatening Earth. Time is running short as she races to Umbriel, a moon of Uranus, to salvage and reactivate an old sweeper ship with a Q-drive hidden there. But then she gets company.
This first Naomi Kinder science fiction adventure spans the wide orbits of Pluto and Uranus and takes Naomi to the airless, icy moon of Umbriel. Fans of widescreen space operas, the Golden Age of science fiction, and SF romance will identify with Naomi’s challenges, both small-scale and astronomical. Naomi’s got some special abilities, but she’s no hero. Now the fate of the civilized solar system depends on her.
Rescuing the Future: A Naomi Kinder Novel (also available for Kindle) picks up where Godspeed Inc. leaves off and includes a dangerous, uncertain journey by Naomi with Leo and Bonnie more than 200 years in the future to save a future Earth from a nanobot infestation. Godspeed Inc. is a novelette, but Rescuing the Future is a full-length novel of over 111, 000 words with a much larger cast of characters, including the elite female warriors of the future, the UN Medusan Marines.
Joyce Ellen Armond: Speculative Romance (and More) Online wrote: "Godspeed, Inc. by Vincent Miskell will be a treat for all you fans of Linnea Sinclair. It's a high-concept science fiction adventure. Keep reading and you'll get to a rousing romance."
Alasdair Stuart of Tangent wrote: "Miskell has a real sense of the visual, and some of the scenes here are breathtaking. . . .[Naomi's] a great character, hugely sympathetic, and at times reminiscent of Hutch, the heroine of Jack McDevitt's excellent Engines of God series."
The Science Fiction Encyclopedia calls Godspeed Inc. "a tense thriller set at
the edge of the solar system and the first of the Naomi Kinder stories."
