What we have here is a short story concerning a brief adventure of the protagonist, Susan "Tsunami" Nakamura. The biggest problem with the story is that half the time, it's not really clear what's going on- we know that Tsunami and her crew are...I don't know, defending a bigger ship and then dropping some cargo off on a planet. Making her a mercenary at least deals with the "why" of the situation: for money, dear boy. The story is mostly action- there's little in the way of science in this sci-fi, and I'm OK with that, but it comes off as chaotic. And like I said, it's not easy to understand what's going on.
Also, I found it a little off-putting that we're given a few alien races that I guess we're supposed to know about right off the bat.
Now, if I was reading Star Trek fluff I could be expected to know what a Vulcan, Andorian or Borg is; however, for a story that seems intended to serve as an introduction to these characters and aliens, we don't get much on them. The story features the characters being snarky, and not a whole lot else. I say skip this one, and download one of the free Andre Norton stories instead.
The formatting was great. I didn't find any grammatical errors, not that I was really looking for any. the story was over before it started.
Recommend if you're commuting on a train or slugging for an hour, or if you're a Sci-Fi fan.
What you will find is a small cast of entertaining characters, fun dialogue, and slightly zany situations.
If you're a science fiction fan looking for a good, light-hearted story to pass an hour or so of time with, this is a great choice.

Not bad, but predictable, with aliens who's differences didn't add to the story, and a critter that was unbelievable.Published 1 month ago by Anonymous1
Enjoyed the exploits of a true scoundrel. You have to like a lady who plans ahead and gets what she wants. Dark comedic moments. Would like a longer story with other adventures.Published on April 5, 2014 by Amazon Customer
Terrible character development, bad physics, videogame-like combat (including the nonchalant attitudes of the combatants). Probably exciting for a kid to read, but not much else.Published on December 11, 2013 by J. Richardson
short story... low development of the plot, when I got to know who was who it ended... Didn't like itPublished on November 27, 2013 by Carlos Gárate
It was a typical Sci-fi plot to me. Just another story for me. Plot was decent, action was good but minimal.Published on November 6, 2013 by NoNomad
Free or otherwise, if you enjoy action packed sci-fi in space, you'll love this quick read. Very well written; just the right amount of character development for a short story;... Read morePublished on October 8, 2013 by Wes Royer
I got this as a freebie, thinking well it free, short and properly not worth much; I was so wrong, it is fast moving, full of quirky twists, look if it is still free GET IT. Read morePublished on June 20, 2013 by Oldschool
Ever see Tank Girl? That's what this story reminded me of, only more so. Fast, warped, sarcastic fun. Read morePublished on April 12, 2013 by Lindsay
This was a pretty good sci fi book with interesting twists and turns. I'll look for more books by Greco now.Published on April 2, 2013 by Larry Jaques
