      I love smart young women as protagonists and Ginnie Dare delivers. A fun read with a good puzzle and well-crafted relationships.

      Wow! I wish a had Ginnie Dare as my heroine when I was a 14-year-old space geek. Fun and inspiring story.

      A great read! The story is well written, and the action well timed. Knowing the author by no means influenced my opinion, as we both believe that honesty is the best policy when it comes to reviews.I'd love to see more from Ginnie in another story. A great read for old and young alike.I highly recommend it.

      Ginnie Dare is a good yarn, with many interesting possibilities, the doors to which Scott Roche leaves wide open for future exploration. It is an enjoyable read, and leaves the reader with questions unanswered, without leaving the reader dissatisfied. If I were to have a complaint about this book, it would be that it is too short - I wanted more of the story than the novella length would allow.

      This was a great read with interesting characters, believable conflicts, and an interesting world. I look forward to more Ginnie in the future.

      Ginnie saw a message it was from a day ago. She heard footsteps and could feel him looming over her shoulder. She had hear no word from the colony of Eshu. All communication are cut.

      I received a review copy of Ginnie Dare: Crimson Sands last week, and being in need of a good middle grade read, jumped right in. Mr. Roche has written an engaging work of science fiction for the middle grade reader, and I will be reading the sequel.Despite advance notice in the form of some comments in the book's information, it took me a while to figure out why the name "Ginnie (Virginia) Dare" seemed familiar. Mr. Roche has taken inspiration from the story of the Lost Colony of Roanoke, VA, a [...]

      I have known Scott Roche on Twitter and within the podcasting / writing community for quite a while now. This is why I am almost embarrassed to say that I haven't read any of his fiction until he submitted his short story "Fetch" and later "Ma Coleman's Faerie Giant" to our Every Photo Tells podcast.The story he is most well-known for though, is Ginnie Dare. It's available in print and eBook and I am happy I got hold of a copy. I loaded it on my iPad and read it on the tramway on my way to work. [...]

      I really enjoyed this book! Ginnie Dare is a great read for young readers. The protagonist of the story, Ginnie, is a bright young girl who wants a career in military intelligence. She's gifted at coding and decoding things, and solving puzzles and mysteries. And boy, does she get a mystery to solve, because when she arrives with her father and their merchant crew at a small colony to drop off supplies, she discovers the colonists are missing and the aliens on the planet are demanding the return [...]

      Ginnie Dare: the Crimson Sands by Scott Roche is a delightful YA sci-fi mystery for the whole family. The story opens with Ginnie, the daughter of a merchant, anticipating the Dare Company's next delivery. This gives an immediate look into the titular character and hooked me into the story.Things start happening right away when Ginnie, who serves as the communications officer for her dad's ship, notices something's not quite right. As they approach their destination, they're met with silence. Th [...]

      Ginnie Dare is a YA Space Adventure that gives us a fun experience in the future. Rather than following a military crew and their ship ala The Enterprise in Star Trek you follow Ginnie a young girl working on her father's merchant vessel, privately owned by the Dare company. When trouble at a colony pops up it's up to the crew to figure out what happened, and figure it out fast before hope of their friend's recovery is lost.Ginnie's cleverness and curiosity is an asset to solving the mystery alo [...]

      This is a likable book for any pre-teen to young adult. The entire story reminds me of an old Star Trek: Next Generation episode with a young Mr. Crusher. In this case, it's a young Ms. Dare. I liked the concept then, I like it now. She saves the day while all the brave and all knowing adults run around chasing their tail.I really liked what the artifact did. It was very cool idea. Mr. Roche brings these kind of nuggets to the table for readers to explore and appreciate. He's done this in past s [...]
