In The Hangman's Daughter, a former marine takes over a prison space ship and uses the prisoners as mercenaries. The premise is intriguing, but there isn't much substance here. While there is a lot of action, and it is entertaining at times, most of the characters are pretty flat and have no development, and there is a lot lacking in the world building. The main character Miska is a tough character, but she never really shows any growth. We never figure out what any of Miska's true motivations are, other than avenging the death of her father. Overall, it misses a lot of its potential and ends up being just ok.
NOTE: I received this for free in exchange for an honest review.
This was the first audible book we didn't finish.
Too much use of the F word in various forms.
I was in the Navy and have Marine friends. Nothing compares to this language.

I liked this book. The voice actress was superb and everything was described in such a descriptive way which made the fight scenes amazing to listen to buy the story was just "ok". It was interesting and I did want to keep listening to the next chapter but at random times I would just phase out in the car sometimes and not bother rewinding the audio. Giving it a 4/5 from the voice acting for the amazing action scenes and bringing the main characters to life is such a descriptive way.

I found this a bit of a struggle. The characters are a little wooden and a little too obvious. The storyline is okay-ish, but I do wish writers wouldn't sacrifice forward momentum with expositional back story.
