Author Biography

David C. Jeffrey was born in Riverside, California. He was introduced to the works of Ray Bradbury at the age of 12, just as the “space race” was capturing the imagination of a new generation. From that point on, he grew up on a steady diet of hard science fiction writers like Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clark, Frank Herbert, Larry Niven, Hal Clement, and Poul Anderson.

Jeffrey graduated with honors from the University of California, Irvine, with Bachelor’s degrees in Biological Sciences and Secondary Education. While pursuing a Master’s degree in microbiology at the University of California, Santa Cruz, he conducted field research for the National Science Foundation in the rain forests of Costa Rica and has published in several scientific journals.

He has worked as a science instructor, a microbiologist, and later as a cardiology RN for twenty-five years in acute care settings. An experienced wilderness trekker and naturalist, he has solo-backpacked throughout the wild regions of western America, including Alaska and Yukon. Now retired, he lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and continues to write character-driven science fiction novels featuring space exploration and real science.

A sequel to David Jeffrey's Through a Forest of Stars, Sun Wolf continues the Space Unbound saga with great aplomb. Commander Aiden Macallan and his crew of the Sun Wolf are recruited for an exploratory mission to the star system Alpha - 2 Hydri and investigate rapidly increasing voidoid fluxes that threaten to shut down access to Bound Space. However, Aiden's discussions with the acting director of the Cauldron, Margum Ebadi, further reveal that the fluxes threaten the shelf life of the voidoids and part of the universe itself. When the Sun Wolf is bombarded by mysterious spaceships with unknown affiliations, Aiden realizes that he must seek the whereabouts of the enigmatic Elgin Woo and seek his help to save Bound Space from complete annihilation.

A pulsating page-turner that explores new mysteries and newer horizons, Sun Wolf is an entertaining sequel that holds its own when compared with its much-praised predecessor. Author David Jeffrey introduces a couple of fresh faces into his epic sci-fi saga. He also provides in-depth backstories to his older characters and develops them further. The transitions between Woo and Aiden's narrative are seamless, and the pacing of the plot felt perfect to me. I also found the rhetoric spewed by the presidential candidate of the Earth First movement highly amusing, and it reminded me of a certain former president of one of the world's most renowned democracies. Overall, Sun Wolf was a blast to read. I think it is a must-read for sci-fi fans.

Sun Wolf, penned by author David C. Jeffrey, is a work of fiction in the science fiction subgenre and is aimed at the general reading audience with no explicit content. It is the second book in the Space Unbound series. The book follows the adventures of Aiden Macallan and his crew aboard the ship Sun Wolf as they are tasked with a mission to save both mankind’s progress in the stars and the universe itself. As the strange beings that are guiding humanity into the future begin to shut down, Macallan and his team must race against the clock to stop their benefactor’s extinction.

Author David C. Jeffrey delivers a highly captivating science fiction story that follows commander Aiden Macallan as he endeavors to save humanity from destruction. Jeffrey does a wonderful job of creating multifaceted characters, and I felt the characters introduced in this novel were as well thought out and developed as the characters that were carried over from the previous installment. One of the things I enjoyed most about this novel was the fact that the scientific information given was thought-provoking and believable, and it got me thinking about the ideas explored in the novel in more depth. Sun Wolf is an exciting and imaginative science fiction novel with a twist of mystery that will keep you engaged and inspired with the universe, the story, and the characters. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend this novel to fans of epic space adventures and those who are looking for a stimulating read.

Sun Wolf is the second installment in David C. Jeffrey’s Space Unbound sci-fi series. After the events of Through A Forest Of Stars, Aiden Macallan is coming to grips with the new status quo. Now in command of his new spaceship, he struggles to deal with the distance between him and Skye. After experiencing a deep connection to Silvanus, Aiden is struggling with addiction too. Unfortunately for him, there is no rest. A new threat rises, one that can wipe away bound space and humanity with it. Voidoids are not just for transportation - it turns out they keep the universe in balance. Lately, they have been blinking in and out of existence. Someone has been deliberately tampering with the voidoids. It’s up to Aiden and his crew to find and stop the threat.

I’m so happy with Sun Wolf as it adds to the story introduced in Space Unbound book one. The plot thickens as the villain from Through A Forest Of Stars is exposed as having been a member of LO. We also get more insight into what drives LO to do the destructive things they do. Everything is linked and the discoveries keep coming. It’s so exciting when you learn something new and it adds to the stakes of the story. One of the reasons I love this series is that the real science facts always leave you wondering, what if? There are some new characters too. There was one I wanted to punch at the start but I cried buckets for him in the end. Sun Wolf will entertain you and leave you thinking hard about humanity’s future. We really need to work hard to change so that we can save planet Earth.
