I guess I am a fan now. So to one reviewers point, I don't quite understand how 5 stars just because it's from a fan should be ignored. Its not like this lady is married to my third cousins, sisters boss's cousin in law. Again, never heard of her before March 2013. Don't we become fans when we find a great author? I hope people write reviews to share something really good when they find it and to warn others when they get junk. However, I too have seen 5 star reviews for work that I consider to be atrocious so not sure what to take from stars.
Anyhow, the complaints about lack of detail & lack of an ending depend upon a point of view. This is a huge universe that has opened up and leaves plenty of room to explain Utopia, and the aliens represent multiple cultures not to mention prequels and sequels. The art of writing is beyond me but what determines whether an author writes a short story, book or a series seems kind of in the artsy world to an electrical engineer/computer geek. I just make computers follow instructions.
Lack of Emotion is an interesting point as I found myself laughing out loud and wanting to kick Athenais butt. This is a lot lighter and more tongue in cheek than Zero but I liked it. Don't want to be a spoiler so I will just say that there is one point where having three people becomes important and if that doesn't leave you LOL then I must be super geek. That's why they make chocolate and vanilla I guess, some like it hot and some like it cold. Enough about what others think.
Again its all about characters and story telling. This, hopefully a series, could go anywhere and I will be happy for the next installment of fun and p.o.'d that I have to wait for it. As with Zero, she paints her characters lovingly although I sense she had a lot more fun with these ones. Sara and her partners at Parasite Publishing are re) defining a new style of story telling and I like it. Someone in another review mentioned Firefly and I could definitely say a good dash of that but not a copy in any way.
Final word, buy the book - you will like it!
Someone said that 4 star reviews are read more than 5 and they therefore rated it 4 but that's BS. This book is 5 stars hands down. No question in my mind. Though it does start a little slow.
Someone else said this book had no storyline, the characters just fly around killing and being killed. They said the main character was underdeveloped and unbelievable. Being several thousand years old she should have learned a few things along the way and seemed to have learned nothing. While I partially agree with that, there are some revelations regarding the main character that help you understand why she is the way she is. That reviewer must have stopped reading before they got that far or simply did not recognize them for what they are.
Having said that there is not much in the way of character arc for the main character. The only reason she ends up different than when she started is that she made a bet at the end that she lost and one of the other main characters forces her to stick to her word and honor the bet. But for some of the other characters there is definite arc and though a lot of the book was painful to read because the main character is such a spoiled brat and a raging B**CH, the arc for the other characters really pays off in the end and is very satisfying once you make it there.
The book does have a story line, albeit a bit haphazard. But that is actually what made it so good. I could not predict where the story was going. Things happened that were totally unexpected. The story ended in a completely different place then I ever would have thought and as I said before, some of it was very painful. The main character is unrelentingly spoiled and selfish and it does get really hard to read after a point. But as I said before, the payoff is great and you do find out why she is the way she is. *Spoiler* Deep down she worries that the first time she died, she lost her soul and that heavily influences who she is and what she does.
So I say this book is easily a GREAT BOOK!! and well worth reading and plugging along through the tough spots. As one of my favorite actors said in one of my least favorite movies, "The sweet wouldn't be as sweet without the bitter." That is very applicable to this book.
And I have read just about all of Sara King's books and highly, highly recommend her stuff!! She is consistently a strong story teller and has terribly riveting stories. Her characters are deep as her aim is character driven stories, which I believe she succeeds at.
She does brutalize her characters, so beware!! I do mean brutalize!! They go through some heavy Sh*t!!
I've extremely enjoyed everything I've picked up from Sara King. Try it, it's a blast. Oh, & a huge Thank You to Sara for putting all these titles on Kindle Unlimited for all of us whose wallets cannot keep up with our voracious appetite for books.
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
