  • Crini
    This could have been SO good but the characters didn't do it for me at all. A+ for the plot and the diversity (lesbian space pirates for the win) but the characters where lacking depth and their interactions where sometimes cringe-worthy in their awkwardness (especially that "special" moment at the ...

Unfortunately, the good is bogged down by too many characters who are barely more than sketches, an...

    This review and others posted over at my blog. Lesbian space pirates versus a murderous AI? Sign me the hell up! The result left me feeling conflicted, however. Buckle up!We’re immediately thrust into the story and Adda and Iridian’s dreams for their future, all of which intrigued me. The...
