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.
The only thing that jarred was that Calder was a human, unknown to most races, yet they accepted days, weeks, months (derived from Earth's rotation around its sun) as nornal description of time. The crew also used 'day' and 'night' whilst in deep space, where those anomalies do not exist. Just a petty observation. The book was better than most.
Enjoyable space romp. Characters are fun, love the idea but it's not seamless and the flow reads a little like a role play game written into story. I enjoyed it and would recommend to anyone who likes a light space opera fun.
This was a fun, easy read which revolves around the only human out in the galaxy, away from planet Earth. The main character is quirky and at times like a fish out of water. The other main characters are also interesting and the author expands their backstories throughout. I’d recommend this book if you like Guardians of the Galaxy and Firefly.
Space Rogues is a fun read. I enjoyed the characters and had a few laughs. The battle at the end had one glitch, the huge peacekeeper carriers didn't launch fight during the chase? Maybe the fighters could keep up in a space chase? Otherwise I enjoyed the ride.
I enjoyed the easy reading of this story. The characters and story line carried me along well and easily. My only "issue" was the 7 typing/spelling corrections that I found. I am glad that I could submit them to improve it for others.
Ok, the author steals like a madman from the best. The main character is John Crichton from Farscape, with the personality of Mal from Firefly, flying a Klingon Bird of Prey through the Peacekeeper universe, throwing pop culture references out like a demented machine gun (and not just sci-fi - he misremembered the bots numeric name as 8675309...). Star Wars, Star Trek (or Babylon 5, not sure what show about people in a space station was being referenced), nothing is sacred. One of the key plots is his own twist on the super-vault robbery from Farscape.
And it works. It comes across more of a homage than blatant theft, and while the rewind-and-jump-viewpoints gets a little tiring, the story is fun, and if it starts slow, well, wait until the giant battle towards the end when he finally brings the plot points together.
