My review


This novel was my first novel of 2020, and I loved it. It has everything a good space opera needs from planet hoping to assassins. Of course there are damsel in distress and damsel making distress. It has something for everybody. This novel is fast paced, events just jump at you from every page. Author did a great job keeping me entertained.

In some novels world building is the single most problematic thing, either it's all over the place, or it has holes the size of the moon. Well, not here. Author build this universe with care and attention to detail. Would I live in a Gage's world nope, but still I loved it.

The biggest advantage of this novel is that it's written in 1st person. And that is helpful. Because it allows a reader to immerse himself/herself in this novel much easier.

I loved the main character so much. Gage is an awesome example of a real anti hero. His sarcasm and dark humor are fantastic, and it made me laugh out loud.

But the best part of the novel is that final twist. It was such a small, simple twist, yet it was a pure brilliance. Where many writers go for big reveal and some over the top complicated twist,which are good but after a while they become predictable, here the author did it small and simple. And it was awesome choice. I have to admit, it left me speechless, which believe me, it's not easy to do. When you read a lot of books, after a while you begin to notice the pattern of plot twists. And if the author doesn't plot twist the plot twist you know what is going to happen before you even get there. That won't happen here. And because of that I love this novel, it surprised me when I thought that is not possible any more. Kudos to the author for that.

There is one thing I didn't like, and that's that on a couple of occasions it had too much drama for my taste. But that doesn't change the fact I really enjoyed this book.It was a pleasant surprise and it deserves to be read.



4 stars for Hunter
