I don ’ t get why people are besotted with this novel.

“ You look pretty spry for a corpse ” is straight out of a Spider-Man comic.When the best racer ever is accused of the murders of a fellow racer, no one believes it because she has everythin to gain from that.

This story just becomes a thousand times more interesting, doesn ’ t it?

Instead she learns nothing.I ’ m lad I didn ’ t see any of the blurbs before reading this book.

I know I ’ ve called this nonsense out in other anthologie, but seriously, who the hell does that?!

Plus, you know, all the BLOOD.Mm, yeah, happy fun sexy times, aw yeah.I don ’ t usually diss narrators but whoever read this sounded like a first-year drama student.

It ’ s mostly harmless, though Boots did make the mistake of selling one of her counterfeit maps to her former captain from the arm, and now he and his crew are coming after her for some payback.

One of her rivals was murdered during the course of the spell, and the perpetrators have pinned his death on Nilah, forcing her to go on the run.Both Boots and Nilah ’ s escapes are cut short, however, when Cordell, Boots ’ old captain, intercepts the two omen and holds them captive aboard his ship.

The reality is, there have been a number of these ensemble-crew-adventure-space-opera-type novels released in recent week, man of them attempting to capture the action and atmosphere of popular sci-fi franchises like Firefly or Star Wars.

First, any time you have both magic and technology in a sci-fi setting, things can get messy.

Still, if you enjoy fun sci-fi adventure stories about treasure hunters and heists in space and are looking for a light fluffy read won ’ t require too much time or deep thought, this one might just do the trick.

I love a well-crafted heart-to-heart, and this novel is full of'em.It 's part of a series ( yay!) but works perfectly well as a standalone story.Give it a shot!

Framed for the rape and on the hunt to clear her name, Nilah has only one lead: the killer also hunts Boots.On the wrong side of the law, the two women board a smuggler 's ship that will take them on a quest for fame, for riches, and for justice. " I am so prou that I was sent this book for review because I have to admit it did n't seem like something I was ure I would love.

This is a science fiction space opera and I could spend a year telling you all the reaso why I think that you should read this.

I thoroughly enjoyed how far all of the haracters come from the eginning to the beginnin of this books.

I never thought I would want to live aboard a ship hurtling through space but here we are! The villainsI have NEVER been so errified of a illain in my life.

If you 're nterested in this nove it releases June 26th! You might like this book ifYou like sci-fi or space operasYou enjoy a strong female lead.You were a fan of Firefly the T.V. show ( there 's definitely some similarities) You love complex villains.You might not like this book ifYou do n't like space operas.You have trouble reading books with gore in them.You are sensitive to sexual content ( there is n't a lot in this essay, but there is some) .Seriously go and pick up this book when it 's available so we can talk about it!

It was fast paced and fun but took a sharp turn when one of the main protagonist, Nihla, is on the rack and gets attacked.

The map supposedly locates the legendary warship known as The Harrow, it ’ s rumored to have been powerful enough to destroy cities or countries but many don ’ t believe that never existed.Mother believes it exists though, and she came after Nihla ’ s lover and crushed his skull – Nihla barely escapes with her life and hunts down a name she heard her friend say before he died – Elizabeth “ Boots ” .Boots is a washed up celebrity of sorts, she made it big a number of years ago with a show called “ Finding Hana ”.

It makes for an interesting dynamic and things start getting tense when Mother finds them and attacks the ship with multiple cruisers.The crew of the Capricious, willing or not, are now on their pat to try and track down The Harrow before Mother can get her hands on it.The world building in this was really unique, there are ots of different ypes of magic, healing magic, mechanical magic, data magic, life magic etc.

So when Nihla was being chased by Mother with two battle cruisers trying to kill her, and all she could think about was the race she was going to miss, I sort of fell out of the moment.

Boots was much more my style, she has a lot of experience under her belt, she understands the situation they ’ re in and she ’ s incapabl of taking command and getting them out of bad situations.This was very fast paced, there was something going on in every chapter almost from beginning to end.
