To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
In a lot of ways, this is a very good book, well worth the four and (maybe) even the five star reviews that others are giving it. For me, though, the "twist" at the end (I'm going to try and avoid going to avoid going into details, but it's tricky) doesn't work. The protagonist has a choice to make at the end of the novel, and I really can't understand why she chooses the way she does. Clearly from the other reviews I'm in a minority, but for me, it really put a dampener on my enjoyment of the whole book. Having said that, for the ending to annoy me so much, the rest of the book must have been doing something right!
Very good read,not too easy to put down but a similar story line from another series whereby a male is requested by his government to take a similar piracy action. I look forward to a follow-up when available.
The framing device of earth conquered by aliens and a single ship tasked with liberating it has been done before. But the new direction this one takes coupled with just being a good space opera romp makes this a novel highly recommended. Seriously buy you will not be disappointed.
