Publisher's Summary

Black Widows is a thrilling science fiction series about the infamous all-female mercenary unit. Aboard their heavily-armed ship Medusa, they embark on secretive missions throughout the crumbling Confederacy as it wages a terrible and bloody civil war.
The lives of Syala and her twin sister Arana change forever on the day the slavers hit their new home on the Skylla Research Facility. It is a day that started like any other, before turning into a terrifying massacre as soldiers and hideous creatures swarm through the facility killing or enslaving anyone that stands in their way. The sisters struggle to survive as a desperate few try and fight back, but nothing can hold back the horde. Until they find a single mercenary dressed in black armor who refuses to back down. Her name is Zhang Wei, and she is a Black Widow.

A good start to a new action Sci-Fi adventure

This short story is a good start to a new action Sci-Fi adventure. It was very easy to listen to this book in one sitting due to its short length. The action starts early on in the book and continues to the end, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I found the characters enjoyable and relatable, and I am especially excited to see what the author has planned for the sisters in the future. The narrator does a great job with the story. I was impressed with how well she voiced the accents and male voices, and I’d like to listen to more of her work. Overall, this book is a fun, quick sci-fi adventure and I look forward to listening to the next book in the series.

Love the plot, but not taken in.

Yes, for sure.

What did you like best about this story?

The plot and theme

What does Nancy Peterson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

attitude, and a depth to the characters and plot that isn't always there.

Could you see Black Widows, Episode 1 being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Not ep1 alone, but I could see a Tv series. Lucy Lu.

Any additional comments?

I have mixed feelings about this story, the plot is interesting, but the action is slow and at times hard to follow.

The two sisters are interesting, but the they can be more then a bit “slow and wet behind the ears.”. the Plot is slow to pick up but it is interesting over all.
