With the exception of a few (very few) grammatical errors, this is a very nice quick read. I was engrossed in the story from start to finish and having read the first review, I was hesitant and started to pass it by. However, I’m glad I did read it.

I didn't find the issues the previous reviewer had with the story, as it all made sense to me. Let’s face it, hundreds of years since gun powder was discovered, we still use it in out weaponry. The projectiles may be more modern, but the premise is still the same. So who’s to say that in our distant future, the methods of mayhem will have advanced beyond simple gun powder. I for one can imagine the human race still using guns and hand grenades in space faring colonization. That in itself is unbelievable to me… still I love science fiction.

As for not recognizing one of the passengers, it was stated in the story that the passengers weren’t permitted on the crew decks. So it may be that the chief security officer, didn’t interact with the passengers often enough to know all of them on sight. Besides, there were details of the passenger that gave insight into that aspect.

I’m just not reading more into the story than a good story.

I do feel it could have been longer, but all in all, a very exciting short read

Review by: Ken Jackson on June 4, 2011 :
The topic and setting are interesting, but there are far too many inconsistencies for me to like this book.

If a ship left earth for a multi-year voyage to Mars, I am sure that everyone would know everyone on board by name, by sight and by having talked to everyone else before leaving earth. But the security officer didn't know someone well into the flight.

Why would a ship going to Mars carry hand grenades and a shotgun?

There was far too little concern for hull integrity.
