Space Pirates just wanna have fun!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌏🌍🌏🌍🌎
Character development: 🤭😮
The heroine: Jade – she is the de facto captain on the Buoyant Star ship. Her and the three other women on the ship were captive slaves, but after something happened on board, the crew of the ship took off on the escape pods leaving the four of them on board. The ship has been stranded for three years and they can’t go anywhere as they can’t read the alien language and don’t know how to work it. Though they have oxygen and have been able to steal supplies from a few of the ships that have stopped to help them.
The Hero: Adiron – a free spirited, fun-loving Massaka space pirate. He loves his job and has a good time with his two brothers Kaspar, and Mathiras. They are in it for the adventure and for the money and are currently after a ship called the Buoyant Star, which was reportedly carrying a huge treasure and never made it to its destination.
The Story: The three brothers are pulled over by another ship which is must bigger than theirs and is captained by a wealthy Massaka male, Lord Straik with a huge ship full of troops and a bone to pick with the brothers. They decide to work together to find the Buoyant Star which is owned by Straik’s family.
Adiron plays the dumb and easygoing scoundrel while keeping his ears open and finding out all kinds of intel. He is a witty and always up for a bit of fun and often makes bets and pulls pranks with the rest of the crew on Straik’s big ship.
The book is told in dual points of view, and the narration is done by Mason Lloyd and Hollie Jackson. I have heard these narrators before and they are both good readers with many voices in each of their repertoires. The story was good and there was plenty of romance and steam.
