To delve further:
The plot was fairly decent, with different species working together to fight a common enemy who is apparently evil. However, I don't believe we actually SEE said evil creatures, since seeing a couple life pods jump out of a doomed spaceship hardly counts. I had REALLY high hopes, as Scyfi is one of my favorite themes to read. It jumped from that to archaic pretty fast, but even then, other than the speed reading (pretty neat) you didn't see hardly any sci fy themes. Neither affected the score BTW. I mean, being an advanced civilization carries the concerns of how do you survive without all that tech if something catastrophic happens, as it does here.
The story lacks... real progression IMO. Again, I am not paid for this, so you ARE getting what you are paying me for by reading this review, but there was a lot of filler, spaced around a couple REALLY cool parts. All books have those, but this seemed to have a lot of them. For example. To not spoil too much, the ship crash lands, and you get some quite cool portions of the survivor interacting with her fellow shipmates who will not be able to live on this planet, and thus have been doomed. You get a small glimpse of their physiology/culture, just enough to tease and then they are never seen from again.
You think that the main concern is hunting down the baddies, but at the end of the book, have yet to meet one. Though you DO see some of their handiwork once.
There was so much promise here, and her abilities make it seem like there might even be a big climatic battle at the end where one of the supposed two baddies gets offed, or even at least seen, but it ends in a firefight, where we have no idea if she survives, if her companion survived and now has a cult dedicated to the being from outerspace who has a tail and can put people to sleep with her claws, which will follow her surrogate? Replacement? Not sure. Again, REALLY cool premise, and I was VERY much liking this, but the book did not seem to deliver on what it could have.
I loved several scenes here. Meeting the captain, when they get attacked by privateers from the English Navy being among them. THOSE delivered. Also the feels when the space horsemen are planning on a feast and then a "death swim" (can you imagine a 18th century botanist finding THOSE bodies wash up on shore?? Supporting the cultist theories?? )
