Not feeling the best today, so this review is going to be a bit brief. Still a good book though!
Genre: science fiction (of the military/space opera-ish variety)
Plot: Evan Gabriel is a dishonorably discharged and disgraced North American Federation Navy officer that gets a chance to redeem himself on a new covert operation. However, the motives behind the operation become more and more unclear as the plot develops.
What I liked:
- The technical terms are there but written in a simple, straightforward way that doesn’t get you lost in translation
- Gabriel is an interesting character
- Some of the twists, while not unpredictable, are good
- It’s a well written indie book, and that’s always a bonus point for me because I like supporting quality self published work
What I didn’t like:
- Evan Gabriel. This may seem weird, but I liked him, empathized with him, and yet the writer kind of leaves some of the development he gives a lot of the other characters out. At least, it felt that way to me
- The ending was a little anti-climactic, but not disappointingly so. There was still enough to make me smile and feel satisfied, but not in that OMG THAT WAS AMAZING way
I picked this book up for free during a sale, but it’s definitely worth $3.99, especially if you like the genre.
