Exciting story, but has nothing to do with Science Fiction. It is just a trapper and injuns story placed in deep space. There is faster-than-light travel (Van Vogt 1950ties), Cobra Maneuvre (Suchoi SU-27), 30mm Cannon on fighter plane (Nazi ME-262), the good are American Marines, the bad are reptiles (walking upright on two feet, praying to their god, anti-christian), etc.
Two stars, still particularly recommended for reading.
Remark: In my system, five stars is reserved for the most important SF of world literature, e.g. "1984" from George Orwell, and four stars for those I consider all-time best, for example Michael Crichton or some novels from Larry Niven.
This leaves three stars for really good Indie SF, but as everybody else at Smashworts does rate a SF novel at five stars if he liked it, I was detoriating the average rating of those authors I like best! So I decided to change my previous reviews, step by step, thereby deleting my smashwords rating. Watch out for my rating in the review text instead!
