I went looking for some space opera, and this one landed near the top of the category search. I was hoping to start a good series, so I bought "Moon Wreck" after reading the blurb and skimming the five star reviews. The storyline is familiar, but I expected it to be. "Astronauts find crashed ship on the Moon, it has a working AI, it turns out the ship is from advanced human civilization on the run from an evil empire". I wanted some space opera, and yes it's that.

However, I didn't expect the laughably awful writing, the lack of originality, the complete lack of any technical explanation of anything, the slight sexism that runs through the book, and all the other things that force me write this one-star review. I read the first 75% of the book in detail, then just could not take it anymore and skimmed the last 25%.

The alien Hocklyns are described as "a lizard that walked on two feet with arms and hands. They were a pale green in color with a small crest on the top of their head". Are you kidding me? That's a Gorn from Star Trek! And the Admiral of the Federation Fleet, well he's clearly a copy of Commander Adama from Battlestar Galactica.

Every character is named something from early 70s elementary school classroom. Jason, Greg, Lisa, Elizabeth, Katherine. The alien AIs are named Ariel and Clarissa; perhaps the author watches Disney movies and late 90s Nickelodeon TV shows.

The male characters are never physically described, but the female characters are, as are the female AIs which are called "gorgeous" multiple times. When we meet the second AI, Clarissa is described as "a pretty blonde with deep blue eyes and a friendly face", and Greg notes that "The Federation obviously had a good taste in women.

This book made me very upset. I am very frustrated. This is the first book I have read from this author and It is very upsetting. I love the premise, I really do. Its very interesting. I just have issues with the characters, the authors writing style, the characters and the sister. The sister, even though I never meet her was one of the most annoying characters I have ever read about. As another reviewer put it, it seems like some sort of incestuous relationship. Its REALLY creepy and annoying. For some astronauts, Greg and whats his name( the characters are not memorable at all) are pretty cowardly. How the heck are these guys astronauts and all they think about is getting back to his overly protective sister and wife and baby. Its like come guys, Your wife married you first people to make it back to the moon in a very long time, you discover a alien space ship and all you think about is your kid and your whinny sister. Its upsetting. Now, dont get me wrong. I love my kids and my wife. I would miss them, but so much of the comments were about the sister and wife and kids it was distracting.

2nd major issue. This was almost as annoying as the sister. Ok, so you find this crashed spacecraft right. You find what looks to be human corpses. You find out the ship has been there for over 100 years. did I mention you found HUMAN corpses. WTF. No one freaked out? No one said hey, this is odd. How the HECK did HUMANS get on the moon. Even when they meet the AI, that should have been of the first 5 questions. Its like good grief. No one even baited an eye. That was very upsetting. I was waiting and waiting and waiting for someone to make an off hand comment. NO ONE DID. Its like, did humans originate on this world and some left? Is the last 10,000 years of human history on earth a lie?

So, I have read the entire Galactic Empire War to date, and I have had a problem with how simple the writing is and how very very repetitive it gets, as of the author believes in using nothing but flat description and boring dialogue to advance the story. In my mind, that series didn't start out that way, but as it advanced, it seemed the author was getting paid by the word or was just struggling to turn out content. That being said, I still intend to struggle through the next however many volumes because I need to know where the story goes. However, because of this, I had no intention of reading the Slaver Wars series, but it was the first book in one of those 99 cent Kindle anthologies so I gave it a try. I finally stopped at chapter 7 and came to write this review, because, while the concept is interesting it is just almost unreadable, like listening to someone who says "or whatever " every five words while trying to tell a story or whatever. If you can't handle that, don't read the book. If you are looking for good self published space opera read Swallow The Sky by Chris Mead instead.

Had a few issues with this book. The authors really bad habit of repeating information over and over was one of the biggest. Greg has got to be the biggest coward in the galaxy. Why on earth he's an astronaut is baffling. "Is this safe?" "Are you sure this is safe?" Come on man! Grab your balls! The relationship between Commander Strong and his sister is borderline incestuous. Is she your sister or your wife? The way he is constantly worried about what she thinks about his decisions makes it seem like they are married. Anyway, nice effort, but I probably won't read much more by this author.
