Having said that, it is a good, although perhaps a wee bit simplistic, adventure story. There are some quite decent space battles which is probably why I quite liked the book despite the profiteer setting. This book is less heavy on the actual science compared to, for instance, Star One. It is more of an old fashioned adventure from the age of pirates but set in the future and on a galactic scale.
The writing is quite good and there are plenty of likable characters in this book as well as some not so likable. Actually, if you discount the privateers, which by definition are the bad guys, there is only one truly self-centered, abysmally unlikable, political, [censored]hole who, luckily, are quickly contained. At least in this book. He still hangs around though so I truly hope that, if he is included in any future books, that he expediently gets his behind slapped.
What I do like about this book is the premise of humans being the wrong guys to [censored] with. Yes, we were caught off guard and yes we got the [censored] beaten out of us but the profiteers have indeed put their foot in a hornets nest and I think (hope) the stage is set for some serious [censored]-kicking and surprises for the privateers. I quite would like to see the humans applying some human ingenuity to the advanced science that the have purchased as well. I so do like these surprise moments…surprises for the bad guys that is.
It has all the making of a good adventure series and, despite some reservations, I for one would like to see a continuation of this book series.
