"Reading the same genre of books can get repetitive and mundane sometimes, but as soon as I picked up this book, I knew that wouldn't be the case. Pirates is really refreshing compared to the other books in the science fiction genre, and I think the author nailed it in terms of character and plot. The setting of the book alone was an interesting concept, and that was enough for me to start reading and not stop until the end. With plenty of plot twists and action, the author also made sure that there wasn't a dull moment in the book. I have to say that this read is really a treat.
What really stood out to me, though, was the main character, Tanner Scott. He was written with a degree of authenticity that very few authors can accomplish, and he definitely intrigued me right from the beginning. Add on an equally intriguing plot and cast of characters, and you've got a great start to a series.
If you haven't read anything by this author before and so is not sure on what to expect, I highly recommend this book for you, especially if you enjoy science fiction--because it won't disappoint! Jim Rudnick will surprise you with his characters and the world that is seen in Pirates. Overall, a very successful start to the Rim Confederacy series, and I can't wait to see what future books will bring!"

My first novel -- as some reviewers noted had a dearth of 'dividers' between scenes...so the newly revised and re-edited Kindle version has those definite scene change dividers now in place!
