There are some strange errors in logic as well such as the fact that Grendle would send communications from space in terms that paranoiac Greshians everywhere will immediately find "treasonous" After all, that's exactly why they are swarming into the galaxy and try and conquer everything in their way.
Then there is the fact that Grendle already served a couple of years and only now developes a conscious?
Then there is the case of Anki getting sucked into space without a space helmet on and nothing happens decompression wise? Or the other two men on board can tow them back on board without having been sucked out into space as well?
Or Brendle declaring he wants to be with Anki the second day after he met her? I think the romantic touch here is forced and not successful.
Looking past these problems the rest of the the book actually became rather interesting giving the promise of further scope for improvement in following episodes in this series. We basically have four misfits in a warship that came together and who have nobody else but each other to overcome tremendous adverse circumstances. Sort of: Have derelict spaceship, will travel!
I used an ereader’s synthetic text to voice option to listen to this fast paced story in my Jeep while driving out to Niagara Falls. I received a free copy but I can’t remember where from. My TBR pile is a large and frightening place, and by the time I get to things, I often draw a blank on their origin. I also tend to download freebies that I see on twitter @S_Shane_Thomas or facebook at S.Shane.Thomas.author.
Avera has given us two unlikely heroes and set them up for bigger adventures. This is the beginning of a great adventure for Anki and Brendal. I get the feeling that somewhere in their near future the gang would rub shoulders with the likes of Han and Chewie before they quite smuggling.
Young Luthurian marine, Anki, has been given her first space assignment on board an old but luxuriously appointed ship being sent on salvage duty. She is alone and afraid. Brendle is an officer of some years standing on a successful battle ship of the Galashian Empire, but lately he has been growing weary of the death which he so effortlessly bestows on whole populations. He makes the mistake of letting others know. Eventually, this enemy couple will be thrown together, dependent upon each other if either is to have a hope of survival.
The characterisations in this book are excellent, with the main protagonists emerging from the introductory chapters, in part by repetition and seemingly clunky text, as three dimensional, living people, their lives and inner feelings revealed by a type of mind alteration trick played upon the reader by the author. And when the action in space begins, the flames of battle seem to leap from the pages, so palpable is the terror.
This is an excellent first story in what promises to be an innovative and exciting series. Sadly, the text also includes a number of annoying little typos which should by now have been edited out and it is these, combined with some needlessly badly constructed English, which has pulled this otherwise excellent book from five stars down to four.
