Avera makes sure we spend equal time in each of the minds of the two main characters: Anki, the hardened Luthian Marine, and Brendle, the Greshian Combat Ensign, who is not all that enamored with the Greshian war tactics.
The circumstance that puts them together to deal with their mutual mistrust is well-built, and although you just know they will meet, the situation is surprising – and possibly not uncommon in a war where each other’s capabilities are unequal.
Brendle is an interesting character – a soldier with a conscience – and I look forward to see where his new direction (and new-found “friends”!) take him in subsequent books.
Not your usual “space battles, lasers and explosions” sci-fi! (Though Broken Worlds has those too ... just in case you needed to know)
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.
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!
