Summary: “There is darkness sweeping across the stars.
Most know Androma Racella as the Bloody Baroness: a powerful mercenary whose reign of terror stretches across the Mirabel Galaxy. To those aboard her fearsome glass starship the Maurader, she’s just Andi, their captain and protector.
When a routine mission goes awry, the all-girl crew’s resilience is tested as they find themselves in a most unfamiliar place: at the mercy of a sadistic bounty hunter connected to Andi’s past and a harrowing betrayal.
Meanwhile, on the far side of the galaxy, a ruthless ruler waits in the shadows of the planet Xen Ptera, biding her time to exact revenge for the destruction of her people. The final pieces of her deadly plan are about to fall into place, unleashing a plot that will tear Mirabel in two.
Andi and her crew embark on a dangerous, soul-testing journey that could restore order to their ship—or just as easily start a war that will devour worlds. As the Marauder hurtles towards the unknown, and Mirabel hangs in the balance, the only thing certain is that in a galaxy run on lies and illusion, no one can be trusted.”-Summary from Goodreads
Review: What an action packed beginning of a story. I did really like part 1 of Zenith. It had so many things I wanted, like characters I loved and hated, action, and space. This was a nice quick read, which I read within a few hours. (Though I will say I wish it wasn’t $1.99 for a 62-page ebook.)
Even though I did like it, I did find a few problems.
One of them being the writing. Some of the writing was good but some of the writing could have been done better. There were some scenes had only had telling instead of showing. Sometimes there was quite a bit being said in just one paragraph or sentence. It kid of felt like info dumping.
The other being using the word Fike instead of fuck. Now I’m all for a book to have different words for swear words, but you then have to make the word sound cool. I giggled almost every time I read the word. It will probably grow on, but as of right now I think it’s a funny word.
Overall, this is a great first part of a story that I want to read more of. I can’t wait for part 2.
Have fun reading!!!
