Matthew Carter, eighteen and orphaned recently due to the death of his father, continues on the family tradition of auctioneering. It is not his chosen profession, but one that is thrust upon him by circumstance.
Unique, multi-layered and completely engaging, I thoroughly enjoyed J.S. Frankel’s sci-fi tome “The Auctioneer.” Protagonist Matthew Carter is strong-willed yet endearing, moral but a fighter. Whether struggling to improve upon his auctioneering skills or fighting off vile creatures in an attempt to survive, you can’t help but root for him. But it’s when he manages to save the sweet, intriguing mutant Anarra from being sold into slavery (which he quickly learns is legal in other galaxies) that Matthew truly shows signs of being a burgeoning hero. The pair’s friendship-turned-love affair is perfectly paced, and together they become a force to be reckoned with.
Their fight against the dangers of the universe becomes a matter of life-and-death when the twosome struggle to prevent the planet of Volarus from being sold to the highest bidder; a transaction that could jeopardize the lives of seven billion people. Much is at stake for Matthew and Anarra, and I was on the edge of my seat waiting on the outcome of their heroic gesture and battle to survive. Do yourself a favor and add this novel to your collection. You won’t regret it!
