When should a writer write a story with no contractions? NEVER! It's not clever, it's annoying. Stop it.
It also appears the writer never served in the military which makes some of the oddities in rank and command structure a bit annoying.
The hero also becomes mature beyond his years and never screws up. Not once.
It was a fast and fun read and I am going to see if the second book gets any better.
The plot morphs from hard Sci Fi to a Fantasy/Sci Fi mashup. Some people might not like this but I thought it was an interesting challenge and the writer handled the ideas reasonably well.
The Characters were ones I'd like to meet. I just think they would be a little more interesting if they were not so perfect.
Would I recommend this book? Sure. If your not a grammar queen and enjoy YA style writing.
There was interesting premise in the beginning and thought author, premise-plot wise, did well with it for first 2/3.... Then cycled down quickly -- notion of creating new nation, recognized by Emperor , getting a ship and on and on... The relationship between the CAPTAIN n MC was so unrealistic, it started to get hard to finish.
The character development, which is very important to me, was just poorly done throughout. First person account and large portions of book were mono tonic , robotic word dump. Seemed that author wanted to get to 'good stuff ' n didn't much care how he got there.
Book was a $0.0 purchase but I see that the next ones are for $. I'm KU, so I do end up 'reading' a lot of books I would never buy. This is on my don't $ list, but I may have used KIndle Unlmtd just to see where it went -- maybe. I've read Campbell, Drake, Thomas, Larsen to name a few that after 2-3-4 books in their series, it would normally been sayonara time. First couple were interesting and then subsequent books went downhill fast, IMO, but kept 'reading' them. Would never have paid except Kindle Unlmtd kept them around way past my normal. However, there's a diff between reading n skimming and I have skimmed way too much lately waiting on 'my' authors to pub.
It started out interesting enough, and the premise seemed strong at first. The dialogue was stiff and formal, the main character grew more annoying as I continued reading, and then a glaring plot hole just pushed me over the edge.
The main character is a Mary Sue...he's proficient at everything, weaknesses? flaws? Anything to make the character relatable? Nope. I found the main character to be a combination of Luke Skywalker, Captain Kirk, and Harry Potter.
Rather than go on, I'm just going to leave it there and let you decide. Based on some of the other reviews, some folks have enjoyed it. The Enemy of an Enemy was, sadly, just not my cup of tea.
Marking it as Read to get it off Reading List.
