It’s hard to write a review on a book that’s only 62 pages and it’s also hard to get to know the characters and the universe it’s set in but despite that I think that this book had potential to be something action packed and badass. I kept getting a Throne of Glass vibe from the characters especially Andi who I saw as a space version of Celaena Sardothian, but that’s never a bad thing because I am too a huge fan of that series. I love both Sasha and Lindsay on book tube so I will make sure that this doesn’t affect my review and if you aren’t already subscribed to them, I recommend you do as they are both really enjoyable to watch.
Most know Androma Racella as the Bloody Baroness: a powerful mercenary whose reign of terror stretches across the Mirabel Galaxy. 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.
The problem with dual authors means that sometimes you can spot a difference in the writing styles but in this case, I thought it all flowed nicely. I am also really excited to see where the story goes as we get a taste of the plan of action but I’m sure they’ll be some drama and action along the way.
One of the only things I didn’t like about this book was some of the characters, especially Andi who I thought didn’t deserve the title of the ‘bloody baroness’ because to me she didn’t seem that evil or cruel. However, on a positive note, I can’t wait to learn more about her relationship/past with Dex in the next installment. I also expected more of a crew, rather than just four members yet, I enjoyed the fact they all had different abilities and personalities.
Overall, though, I did like it and give it 3/5 stars, I just wasn’t wowed-wowed or really impressed (but that might be partly down to its size) however I will definitely pick up the next installment as I am interested to see where it will go and how the characters will develop.
