The Disasters by M.K. England


The Disasters are:

  • Kicked out of the Ellis Station Academy
  • The only people in the galaxy aware of a genocidal plot to kill entire planets
  • In possession of a diverse array of skill sets that would be very useful if they were to attempt to heroically put a stop to previously mentioned genocidal plot

The Disasters are not:

  • Space murderers


I really enjoyed The Disasters. It’s a fun book, packed with action and an engaging, unique plot. The characters are the strongest element, relatable with full arcs and happy endings. My only wish is that this could’ve been stretched into a series, or even just a duology. The characters were just so fantastic that I want more! The ending wasn’t completely open and shut, though, so maybe a sequel is something I can reasonably hope for. Rating: Five/Five

Favorite Quotes:


  • “Every cell of my body says, ‘Oh god yes! Crime? I can do some crime!’ I want this ship like I’ve never wanted anything in my life. I had a poster of the first-ever Breakbolt model on my bedroom wall when I was nine. It’s like a manifestation of every dream I’ve ever had, everything I’ve ever wanted for myself: a piloting license, a beautiful ship under me, and stars out the viewport. Child Nax says, ‘Do it, do the crime!’”
  • “We’re raised to believe that if we do all the right things, the law will protect us. Reality is much harsher.”
  • “Yeah, I know, I’m a bit of a disaster. But hey, aren’t we all? Doesn’t mean we can’t fly.”
