There are two types of heroes: those born into the role, and those who kind of stumbled across it and have no idea what they’re doing. Fillion Ker III falls into the latter of these categories. As one of the top Dream Searcher in the world, he was just doing his job chasing a particularly hard and interesting Summons through the Tierameng, a different dimension that dreams get connected to. But when he caught the Summons, he was told that he couldn’t report it or he would be dead in a few days, and he had to go to a locker and he would have all he needed to find a girl that needed to be found. With the help of a Living Document and the captain and crew of a mostly legal transport ship he needed to find the last of the Chozen, who are were the universe’s only hope against the Tioris, fallen god-like beings who are enslaving the entire universe.
This was a really good story. All of the characters were well-developed and the plot was complex but at the same time easy to follow. I loved Fillion’s bungling nature and the back and the back and forth between him and the first mate, Red. It was a really funny story and I can’t wait to read the sequel. The only thing I had a problem with was the constant switching of POVs. Sometimes it worked, but there were a few times where it made it hard to focus. Aside from that, it was a good story.
