It has been a busy time since I last posted. Lots of things going on, including losing a whole freezer and not realizing said freezer was gone till two weeks later. Yikes. It was a fun four hours as I cleaned out the freezer with my family, and removed putrid packs of meat.
But hey, I know I have personal experience (for future books) now of what it feels like to smell rotten meat and the gagging that proceeds that. 😉 Wrong? That depends. But I also know what it feels like to faint, and stab one’s self in the hand (this was a rather unfortunate kitchen accident last year that I would rather not relive).
I’ve also been busy beta-reading a book for one of my favorite authors, and I can’t wait to tell you all about it. Not sure when that’ll be, but keep an eye out!
Okay, on to the review (which is the best part, cause you’re in for a treat on this one). I received this book as a birthday gift from my good friend Hope (a fellow blogger and author, whose work you should check out–it’s amazing.)
From the back of the book:
Captain Glint Starcrost is not having the carefree, adventurous life the space academy brochures promised star pilots.
Broke, with an unreliable star freighter and a bounty on his head, Glint is desperate enough to try anything. Even set out on a quest to find a fabled good luck charm, the Emerald Enigma.
Now for a crew. A passive aggressive ship computer, a peaceable alien warrior, and time-traveling teen from the past aren’t what he had in mind. But they’ll have to do.
The Emerald Enigma won’t wait forever and neither will the bounty hunter tracking him.
First Impression ~ That is one gorgeous cover. 🙂 And one handsome space man. 😉
Plot 4/5 ~ The plot did seem to drag a little sometimes, but that could have just been me, because it never lasted long and you could still follow along and understand what was going on.
Writing ~ 5/5 Goodness. It was amazing.
Characters 5/5 ~ I really enjoyed this book. Really, really enjoyed it. Books with sarcastic characters are always my favorite and this book was filled with it. The chemistry between Glint and Blix is spot on and humorous.
Bad language ~ None
Inappropriate Content ~ None
Overall Rating 5/5 ~ As soon as I finish reading my other current reads, I’ll definitely be reading book two.
Have you read Space Drifters?
