Bad science and bad fiction
on 16 March 2016
Pretty bad, but I didn't hate it so 2/5, I have no idea how it managed to get so many 5 star reviews, except that reading the reviews it really does sound like they were reading a different book, especially those thanking the author for a 'review copy'.
This book started with promise, but then looses it's way with space pirates that appear and disappear, an infamous criminal that no-ones heard of, a lowly drug dealer that's a leader of men and that's just the first couple of chapters. I'd love to know the thought behind an unarmed naked woman suffering from muscle anthropy slaughtering groups of armed criminals even though she has no training or experience - beginners luck? There's a scene in the middle where someone fills us in on the 'baddies' backstory, even though there's no possible way they could know any of it.
The bad fiction isn't helped by the really bad science; some of the most advanced technology in the future has some really obvious flaws and the laws of physics are treated more as a guide.
