Sounds like your typical Sci-Fi novel right? Lots of people write science fiction these days but not many write novels you want to spend hours reading, enjoying every minute of it.
I read a lot of books, typically 3-4 per week and I get excited when I find a new author (new to me) whose writing grabs my attention. It doesn’t have to be Pulitzer-prize winning material but it has to entertain me, make me think, laugh, wonder, and open my imagination up. I want it to have me wishing I was right there in the ship with Spade, fighting alongside his crew to help save humanity at the last moment even if it is against tremendous odds.
If you like exciting books, check out Galaxy of Heroes. Great book!
The patter and back-and-forth between the characters is understated but brings out each person's personality. If you enjoy space opera, and don't mind all the ridiculous 'science' errors of that genre, I think you will enjoy this book.
All that said, it is in places a bit rough around the edges. There are some spelling and grammar errors, that sort of thing. It could be tightened up in plotting and pacing, and made more professional. Still, it was thoroughly enjoyable, and so I gave it 5 stars.
I finally warmed up to all of the various point of view characters, but not until pretty late in the novel, and of course, they kind of get together at the very end. All in all, this didn't feel like it stands alone; it felt like a prologue to some other work. Everything you keep waiting to have happen, whatever it is, is deferred.
It seems this was written by a pubescent teenager. Note the following reasons: First, the violence is horrific, and gleefully described. Guts getting sucked into vacuum, decapitations, people getting blown to tiny bits, sprays of blood. Just like a kid who plays too much "Call of Duty" video games would love and thinks would be cool (it is NOT!). Second, there is a little sex, but no description of it, as if the writer wouldn't know how it goes. The cyborg is supposedly gene-gineered (I just made that word up) to be pleasing to human males, and spends most of the book naked, but there isn't any actual description of her. Third, the f*bomb occurs occasionally, enough to be annoying but not pervasive, as if the author is ashamed of having a potty mouth.
Anyway, the science isn't even offered an explanation for, so there is no quibble there. "Science Fantasy" is closer to this genre. Where space and spaceships, aliens and far-off planets, all combine to form a setting for the story, but no scientific explanation for how fast they travel. That's okay. If we like Star Wars and Star Trek, then we shouldn't turn up our nose at this.
The writing flows pretty well, but there isn't anything new here. It's an adventure story, and that's all. It was free with Amazon Kindle, and so I read it, then forgot it. Hated only the excessive violence.
Won't pay for the sequel.
