I was looking forward to read more of The Dark Tower aka The Gunslinger series by Stephen King. Strangely enough, the fact that it's an ending series seems to put me off! I've read part 1 to 6, and they were fine, but I just wanted this series to go on and on, I guess...

Space Opera. The cover claims: "Reads like a classic from the masters."

The cover blurb says it all: kids are not supposed to rescue their parents. Well, in this case they do.
This is a YA but it's also perfectly suitable for younger kids as well as adults. Entertaining.

It’s military space opera, small federation fighting big evil commonwealth, hotshot pilot becomes captain after an accident.
It isn’t bad, but we’ve seen all of this before. (David Weber, anyone?) Fortunately Stewart’s writing and plots are better than, for example, Nuttall’s.
