The book started slow but it picked up as it progressed. I kept thinking the author would bring something new or a twist that I did not see coming but unfortunetly not. This book for me is predictable, however, it is not a bad read and others might like it.
What disappointed you about Star Crusader: Dreadnought?
The book offers nothing new from sci-fi story perspective. The story here is pretty basic and juvenile. It follows a formula and doesn't deviate much. At no point did I feel wowed. Please note that there's nothing particularly "wrong" with the story. It's just - not exciting. I've read such stories numerous times and I could tell what would happened next with my eyes closed. The characters too were on-dimensional with clear good vs evil tropes.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Mostly bored and disappointed.
Any additional comments?
I received this audiobook for free from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.
After six months at the Alliance Academy, with intensive training and simulated battles, the several hundred cadets are to go on their first mission assisting the crew of the first of it's kind starship the Dreadnaught. For most it is to be their first real experience but a small handful including Jake, Rex and Billy, had already seen up close fighting and lost friends previously in battle as young teenagers. This experience was to hold them in good stead when things unexpectedly go disastrously wrong ...
A fast paced space adventure, atmospheric and exciting, with tensions building as the book proceeds.. Narrator, Andrew Wehrlen, with his usual masterful voice skills, keeps the reading level, thus increasing the build up of the anticipation of what is to come.
An excellent read for young and older S.F. fans alike.
My thanks to the rights holder who freely gifted me a complimentary copy of Dreadnought, at my request, via Audiobook Boom. Although part of a series, it is not essential to have read the earlier books.
I really really enjoyed this book, the charactes are likeable, the story was intriging and kept you wanting to listen for the next bit. Even though I have not read any other stories from this series I did not feel lost at anypoint. I look forward to listening to more from this series in the future.
Even though I was given a free copy to provied a non-baised review I will be using my monthly credits to back track and listen to the rest of this series
