The year is 3048, Earth is no longer habitable, and man has fled to the stars where they’ve discovered the secret of immortality—Meridian. Unfortunately, the radioactive mineral is exorbitantly expensive and only available to a select few. A new class comprised of the super rich and immortal soon evolves. The Collective, as they’re called, rule the universe.

Two-thousand-year-old Ricardo Sanchez, vampire and rogue pilot of the space cruiser, El Cazador, can’t resist two things: gorgeous women and impossible jobs. When beautiful Skylar Rossaria approaches him to break a prisoner out of the Collective’s maximum security prison on Trakis One, Rico jumps at the chance. Being hunted by the Collective has never been so dangerous–or so fun!

A little paranormal romance... a little sci-fi... why not? This was an ok read... liked it but didn't love it. I don't know... I just needed a little more world building. It was a nice quick read, and I did enjoy some of the characters. This appealed to me initially because the description reminded me of a mix of Firefly/Star Wars... except that we have the inclusion of a vampire. Clever idea... I might at some point give the additional books in this series a try. Sometimes stories and characters become more fleshed out as they progress. Hopefully that will be the case with this one... the foundation is certainly there.
