This series makes for enjoyable reading.
If you're unfamiliar with the series, humanity colonized numerous worlds, and modified DNA so that "humans" could live on remote, less hospitable worlds. There are many species, and the characters are colorful, quirky, and memorable. The worlds tend to be bleak landscapes, but the characters' relationships and desire for a decent future are what drive them. The characters tend to be driven by certain traits to a fault, yet they don't feel painfully one-dimensional. By book 3, I was thinking "What are these lovable misfits up to now?"
Book 1 sets up the story of how Craze, one of the main characters, is forced to look for a new home, hopes to find incredible riches, and finds friends. My main disappointment with book 1 is that it felt short. I wanted more story about their search for a new home. But it was a very enjoyable read. Book 2 finds the gang already living at their new home. Then disaster and terrible luck strike simultaneously. The crew work to figure out how to get out of the situation alive. Pretty straight-forward plot. Book 3 probably gave me the greatest range of emotions as a reader. I laughed, I cringed, I despised, and I hoped. Once again, not all of the group's problems have been resolved, and they must deal with the consequences of their choices. Books 2 and 3 had a few grammar/syntax/punctuation errors, but they didn't take away much from the reading experience. This is a light-hearted, sometimes-hopeful, sometimes-dark space opera. I wasn't sure that I'd enjoy it, but in the end, I kept going back for more. Try it, I think you'll enjoy it, too.
