This is an entertaining read. It’s simple, lightweight and you can read it in a couple of hours, a good length when you don’t want to be tied up for days. This isn’t the kind of story you’d get overly excited about, partly because it is so short, but also because it’s very one dimensional. There are no deeper themes or issues explored. That’s not necessarily a negative; it’s just the kind of book it. You could read it instead of watching a movie. At 99c, it’s extremely good value.
Plotwise, it’s interesting and well-constructed. The central character is endearing and well portrayed and the writing is clean and to the point. When I first read it, I found a few issues in the line editing, but after pointing them out to the author, she assures me that she has attended to these. With that considered I give this 4 stars.
I received this book free of charge from the author in return for an honest review.
Viktor previously worked in the organised crime division, and when his ex-boss is murdered, Viktor is asked to help out with finding the killer. There was no love lost between Viktor and his ex-boss, who was one of the people responsible for Viktor serving on the Endurance, but as Viktor’s name is on a list of targets found on the dead man’s body, he has good reason for helping to find the killer. It will also stop him getting bored while Endurance is back on earth, and there is always the spur of beating his ex-colleagues to finding the murderer..
In a delightful piece of unanticipated rivalry, Viktor and his Endurance colleagues work out what connects the people on the list before the Organised Crime group. Shortly afterwards there is an attempt to assassinate Viktor which tells them they’re on the right track. They discover a message sent to Saturn, and in an ironic turn of fate, Endurance is the only ship ready for the trip.
Mightier than the Sword is a great mix of murder investigation and sci-fi. There are some good fight scenes and a hover car chase before Viktor discovers a secret that may have far reaching consequences and links back to elements in the first book.
This is a good read, and while it is a stand-alone novel, it takes up the story from shortly after it ended in Episode 1 and is therefore better read in sequence. I like the episode length books and have already started reading episode 3.
I received this book free from the author in return for an honest review.
