More About the Author


Kait was born and raised in the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest and started writing to entertain herself during the long winters as a child. Insatiably curious with a love of learning new things, she picked up many random skills including three languages, and two martial arts. After travelling three continents (the other four are on her bucket list), she settled in England with her family where she spends most of her time cultivating her daughter's love of reading and writing, scribbling ideas on every available scrap of paper and trying out dialogue on her cat.

I absolutely enjoyed this story. It was a short read that I devoured in a couple of hours that was complete with great characters, action, plot, and ending. Oh, and a sweet romance to boot!

For being dead, Aurelia Popkiss sure does have great adventures. She and her crew have been scavenging through space since the day she "died." For a girl brought up as a lady, she sure has a diabolical mind always planning their next heist. When she discovers a young woman stowed away on their ship, the whole crew isn't sure what to do. Aurielia KNOWS the stowaway Kateryn is up to something, that her "story" doesn't pan out. But why is she here? Can she sift through the lies to figure it all out? And can she out maneuver the crafty stowaway?

This was such a fun read. Aurelia leads a space pirate crew that is quite eclectic. Her crew is awesome and loyal. Each crewman is unique and adds so many flavors to the story. Each pirate has his own reason for ending up on that ship together, and I enjoyed getting to know them. The POV shifts between Auri and her first mate, Keys, whom she's attracted to but knows nothing will ever come of it.

The adventure was fun to follow as you can tell more is going on than meets the eye. You can see the wheels turning in both Aurielia's and Kateryn's minds , but not sure how it will all play out. It reminded me of Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl and how Jack Sparrow wouldn't necessarily lie but would be able to manipulate all situations to his desires.

The romance that blooms between Keys and Aurielia is sweet and believable. They both are attracted to the other and both have reasons for staying away.

The book leaves you wanting more, and hopefully this is just the start of a series or a much longer book. The group of space pirates are dynamic and interesting. The lead female is strong, funny, and the complete opposite of Twilight's lead. And the writing flows so smoothly that even though I'm a slow reader, I was able to finish this in record time (it helped that it's a novella too). It's a testament to the author's style.

If you're looking for a fun, fast-paced, and humorous read in a scifi (space pirate) setting and a lot of sweet romance in it, I would definitely recommend this!

If the name Aurelia Popkiss doesn't immediately grab your interest, then the fun, fast-paced action across space definitely will. Liar's Game is aptly titled, seeing as how the plot is reminiscent of a galactic game of chess played out between two women with hidden agendas. You can literally see the gears turning in Aurelia's and Kateryn's minds as they try to outmatch the other in this game of wits and sleight of hand.

Aurelia's crew of prison-hardened men each have a reason for sticking with her, which Gamble slowly and skillfully reveals over the course of the book. Although they're extremely protective and respectful of Aurelia (sometimes they even call her "Miss" either as a sign of deference or endearment depending on the speaker), they never treat her like a delicate flower who can't handle a little action every now and again. In fact, it seems to be the other way around as Aurelia is notorious for keeping secrets from her men, which she justifies is for their own good in case anything goes awry with her plans.

This book was billed as a romance but you don't really see that until towards the end, leading me to believe that this isn't the last we'll see of Aurelia Popkiss and her crew of merry men. If this gets picked up as a series, I'd love for Gamble to show us more of the future world she created. There are glimpses of futuristic technology and weaponry but not really an actual battle scene (not counting the opening chapters) that will satisfy the true sci-fi fans out there. Overall, I enjoyed reading this novella and found myself rooting for Aurelia in this battle of wits. Hopefully in her next book, Gamble will be given a longer word count in order to fully flesh out a few things: the developing romance between Aurelia and Keys; the futuristic world in which this story takes place and the backstories of the Euchronia crew. I definitely recommend this book and look forward to seeing more books by Kait Gamble!

I picked up this book based on a recommendation with no real expectations. I'm not a sci-fi junkie, but more of a hopeless romantic that enjoys books with suspense and plot twists. Liar's Game was great! I loved the eclectic characters and all the baggage in their backstories. There's lots of substance and potential romance there to turn this into a series perhaps? The book was a quick read and left me wanting to see what might happen next between Auri and Keys as well as the crew on their next adventure. Highly recommend it!

Space pirate Aurelia Popkiss has issues. Then again, so does every member of her crew, so she fits right in as their fearless leader. It works for them.

Finding a stowaway in with the booty of their latest haul adds a new wrinkle to their lives, though. Aurelia doesn't trust the young Kateryn, but even she couldn't guess the price her and her crew would pay by having her aboard her ship. She has a sneaking suspicion that the young woman has her own agenda. What she doesn't know is that agenda might put a permanent end to Aurelia's pirating days and to the lives of the crew that have become her family.

Short and fast-paced, this novella wasn't as much fun for me as I'd hoped it would be. I liked the characters and the premise of the story quite a lot. Female captain of a crew of space pirates; what's not to like? Unfortunately, there was so much going on in so few pages that the plot just ended up seeming chaotic and rushed, and the ending was pretty abrupt.

The strongest part of the story for me was the characters. I really enjoyed Aurelia and her crew. I liked how they interacted, and their relationships felt very organic and real. I would've been happy to have more backstory and more time with them without the wackadoo stowaway Kateryn. I also wish the romantic elements between Aurelia and Keys had been a larger part of the story, because the little bit I got at the end just wasn't enough to make this really feel like the romance I thought it was supposed to be.

There just wasn't quite enough in some areas and way too much in others for me to really like this one. It was okay, and not a bad way to spend a couple of hours reading, but ultimately I think this one will be largely forgettable.
