Two things I really like about this: The worldbuilding was unique and very interesting. Though it is sci-fi, it reads like fantasy. The characters wear jerkins and cast magic, but fly around spaceships and explore other planets. The other aspect I loved was the writing style. The author's way with description is very evocative. The way he describes mundane things like a murmuring crowd just makes you feel like you're right there in the audience. And I love how he describes how it feels to cast magic.
My gripe with the book was a lack of female characters. There was a mention of a female love interest back home, and another minor female character is introduced who seems like she will play a role later in the story. The whole ship is populated by men; I assume that's because it seems to be a military ship, but I still found it disappointing. Even in all-military organizations throughout real history, there have always been women there: camp-followers, nurses, women who enlisted while disguised as men, or even women who fought in battle "despite" their gender. Since the lack of females characters is a problem plaguing a lot of sci-fi and fantasy, I wish the author had made more of an effort to be inclusive.
Other than that, I recommend this story and look forward to the rest.
And after an "away mission" goes bad we discover that a necromancer reanimates folks and they continue to serve in different capacities! Well! I'm intrigued with where the author is going with all this!
I read the second installment of this novel in progress and am still intrigued. I hope he continues and brings this story to fruition.
