This new author gives us a fun science fiction story with lovable characters and an unlikely hero that sometimes, might just need to be rescued by the princess... well, sort of. The storyline and premise are solid ideas in the, "This could happen to anybody" sort of way that always makes it a little scary. No doubt, the authors military experience gives these pirates a clinical sophistication of form and function that makes them seem like a well organized, for profit, company in the business of looting.
This might make a great movie as I can picture while I'm reading, all the beautiful views of open space, the frightful costumes the pirates wear, the futuristic space ships, and the opulence of that passenger carrier's first class decks. Some of these things would be easier in video, like all the new technology that needs to be described to the reader but is commonplace to those of 2138, and of course roughneck pirates engaging in fights with frightened passengers. The author does a great job describing these things in detail to us.
The Audible version has a nice fluid reading to it and is worlds better than the monotone computer voice that comes with Kindle.
The book starts with very few characters and seems heavy on descriptive details. At first I thought I might not like it, but I hung in there and was rewarded. This story is an adventure I definitely want to be on. So, I'll be awaiting the next book, and hopefully many more in this new series.

I was expecting a lot more from the book, that the description promised. Most of the book was pretty disappointing until the last one and a half hours where the book delivered what was expected from the publisher blurb
