There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Having said that, it is a decent enough attempt though. The book was an enjoyable read but again, A-Team it is not. A-Team had a certain amount of humor in it and this one falls rather flat in that area. Not that it is devoid of any humor but is certainly not one of the books strong points. It is still a fairly nice book to read.
The book describes the creation of Star Risk Ltd. and the team as well as their first mission. There is a fair amount of action, quite a lot actually and in general the book is okay written. It feels like it never really took off though. The author never manages to create any real wow-this-is-good feeling which really makes you care about the characters.
It is the first in the series though so I will probably have a go at the next one as well to see how it goes. Oh, and one more thing, the cover for my Kindle version, and I would assume the printed ones as well, states that this is “military science fiction”. That is just so much BS. Some of the main characters may be former military but this is NOT military science fiction. Whoever wrote that is clueless!
Look forward to further adventures of the Star Risk crew.
Star Risk is a mercenary outfit. The staff are those who really haven’t fit in other place or have been let go for being too independent. The premise launched a five book series and this is book one. The diverse group gets a job due to nepotism or perhaps not. The job is to track down who is claim jumping in an asteroid belt mining venture.
M’chel Riss, a former Alliance Marine (there are no ex-marines) and Chas Goodnight, a bester, are the primary protagonists. A bester is an enhanced special operations agent that goes into overdrive when a battery is shoved, ahh placed in what no doubt the author determined was humorous. (I found it humorous anyway.)
The group gels into a team and solves their problem with more action to come.
I enjoyed the book.

Try it and see. If you like fast action and don't count the bodies you will enjoy this. I also like the sneaky way the team go about carrying out and achieving their object in spite of the hurdles their employers put in their way!
