Review by: Arlee Bird on Sep. 03, 2012 : star star star star
Now this is my kind of book, with short chapters usually not much more than a page long and at eighteen chapters the book is probably only about thirty pages or so. This story flies by which is just the thing for a slowest-reader-in-the-world sort of guy like I am.

I'll have to be honest and say I haven't read much space sci-fi since I was a kid so I don't have much to compare this with, but it seemed like pretty classic stuff like I remember. It's almost comic book style story-telling which makes for a fun light read.

The story is a love story jam-packed with action and I'm talking non-stop. Not much time for character development here. This is wham bam get to the point space excitement that picks you up for a speed of light ride and drops you off with a satisfied feeling of having been told a good tale.

I could have stood a more fleshed out story, but I had a rootin' tootin' good time with this.

(I received this book as a free download having won it as a prize.)
