    3.75 A buddy read with the MacHalo Freaks I had no clue what to expect apart from this book being classified as a Sci Fi, so I was very pleased to discover a fun Universe of pelted races, humans and Space Elvs I know, how cool is that Well, we get to meet one of them, at least, when a Captain of the trader ship Earthrise, Reese is charged with finding and rescuing a mysterious Eldritch Hirianthial who has been captured by pirates and about to be given to slavers Reese has 3.75 A buddy read with the MacHalo Freaks I had no clue what to expect apart from this book being classified as a Sci Fi, so I was very pleased to discover a fun Universe of pelted races, humans and Space Elvs I know, how cool is that Well, we get to meet one of them, at least, when a Captain of the trader ship Earthrise, Reese is charged with finding and rescuing a mysterious Eldritch Hirianthial who has been captured by pirates and about to be given to slavers Reese has no experience at rescuing anything or anyone, since she can barely keep herself and her shipping business out of debt and still running But she owes a favor to an anonymous downer who once payed her loan to fix the ship s engines and this is it Captain Theresa Reese Eddings gives the details of the planned rescue to her crew, two cat people, Harat Shar , one of them a 7 foot Phoenix with metal feathers, and the bio organic specialist, a lady winged centaur like person called a Glaseahn Obviously, this universe is created for the fans of the FuriesThe best things Adventures Destinations Knowledge Relationships All of them start with uncomfortable moments It s only when you re grappling with something new that you might uncover something wonderful but unfortunately, that means grappling with something newThe gang rescues the Eldritch by the skin of their teeth and become a mark for the pirates In order to get their ship fixed and to stay low, they visit the Harat Shar planet of feline people and the culture there is absolutely fascinating I did end up wanting to smack some of those cats, but over all it wasinteresting than frustrating Money is very tight though and we get to visit the colony on Mars where the Captain comes from She goes to visit her female only family to borrow so she can fix the ship and pay her crew Family lets her down and I disliked them with passion This leads to her deciding to take on a dangerous contract which pays very well Things becomecomplicated as we goSometimes the things you fantasize about aren t what you end up really wanting,Did I mention that the only way the Captain relaxes is by reading trashy romance novels A girl after my own heart I enjoyed the book, despite it having some pacing issues and me wanting to kill Reese on many occasions for her stubborn pride and prickliness I see a lot of potential in this Universe and would like to continue with the rest of the series and maybe check the author s other work A good choice for Sci Fi and light Fantasy readers Now I wish you all Happy Reading and my you always find what you need in the pages of a good book

    Free ARC, provided by Netgalley, thank you Wasn t so sure at first, if I would like it, but about a quarter into the book I was in love with all of the main characters I adore Hirianthial, his psychic landscape is fantastic The Harat Shar are great comic characters and the bird like Bryer is fascinating The Flitzbe is like aadvanced tribble.Throw in a classic run chase and hide scenario with an asteroid field, and your swashbuckling space adventure is off to an entertaining ride.I reall Free ARC, provided by Netgalley, thank you Wasn t so sure at first, if I would like it, but about a quarter into the book I was in love with all of the main characters I adore Hirianthial, his psychic landscape is fantastic The Harat Shar are great comic characters and the bird like Bryer is fascinating The Flitzbe is like aadvanced tribble.Throw in a classic run chase and hide scenario with an asteroid field, and your swashbuckling space adventure is off to an entertaining ride.I really liked the second part of the book The swashbuckling comes to an abrupt stop, but it gives a great additional depth to the characters of Reese and Hirianthial The changing POV between those two is very well done and flows smoothly The setting is a nice bit of world building as well.And after the nice interlude on the planet of the hedonistic furry people and lots of eyebrow action we re back to the swashbuckling bit in part three of the book.I am not sure, why this book resonates so strongly with me Perhaps if I had picked it up at another time, it could have had the potential to bore me to death But I really liked it The characters are vibrant and their cultural misunderstandings and differences and moral codes feel so real I just want to hug them all and join the crew for a bitchfest about the injustice of life And then I want to ravish the Eldritch What a fab character I could laugh myself silly over Reese s addiction to Eldritch romance novels.Fun, well drawn characters, interesting plot, snark, humour, eyebrows We have a winner Onwards to the next installment

    Alright, here it goes A semi crappy review bulked up with some pretty crappy pics but honestly, it s all I have the brain cells for any.I purchased and listened to the audio for this one, and I ll be honest, I don t think he was a great choice for this book Big shocker there, right His voice was way too raspy, whispery, and gravelly for the role He sounds like he should be voicing an old time, down and out cowboy like this,not a 30 year old woman like this, I listened to bits in the car Alright, here it goes A semi crappy review bulked up with some pretty crappy pics but honestly, it s all I have the brain cells for any.I purchased and listened to the audio for this one, and I ll be honest, I don t think he was a great choice for this book Big shocker there, right His voice was way too raspy, whispery, and gravelly for the role He sounds like he should be voicing an old time, down and out cowboy like this,not a 30 year old woman like this, I listened to bits in the car and my daughter even cringed listening She said he just sounded like Batman reading different lines So I guess he could even look like this Oops Wrong Batman But you get my drift I don t mean to be disparaging to the narrator I can totally see his voice being perfect for other roles.just not this one It took me several starts and stops before I decided to push through it and acclimate Unfortunately that never really happened I feel like the narration kept me disconnected from the characters and pulled me right out of the story If I had time to actually sit down and read, I think I would have enjoyed this one muchthan I did I know that there is a good story here I loved the cast aside from Reese, who is just prickly, irrational, and rude and who I hope ends up growing as a character Who wouldn t love overly amorous cat people think Khajiit , phoenixes, and space elves I mean come on, that s a winning combination Add mysterious benefactors, slave trades, harems, romance novels, inter planetary travel, and extreme matriarchal societies and you have yourself a fun space opera However, that last like 50% of the book just felt like it dragged on, and on, and on.When the last line was read, my only thought was, Finally That can t be good, right Again, I really think it was due to the poor narrator choice and not the content of the story I m even going to give book 2 a shot.I m giving it a solid 3 stars I thought about going 3.5 stars but in the end it just felt too long and Reese got on my nerves for the majority of the book Initial Review Wow, I feel like I ve been listening to this book for ehhhhh verrrrrrr I think it s in part because I didn t like the narrator and truly felt he was not a good choice for the part maybe another part, maybe another book, just not this one , but also because the last 40% or so of the book seemed to drag on It s bad when the audio comes to an end and the only thing I can think to say is, Finally RTC Maybe Hopefully But we all know how that goes

    3.75 A buddy read with the MacHalo Freaks I had no clue what to expect apart from this book being classified as a Sci Fi, so I was very pleased to discover a fun Universe of pelted races, humans and Space Elvs I know, how cool is that Well, we get to meet one of them, at least, when a Captain of the trader ship Earthrise, Reese is charged with finding and rescuing a mysterious Eldritch Hirianthial who has been captured by pirates and about to be given to slavers Reese has 3.75 A buddy read with the MacHalo Freaks I had no clue what to expect apart from this book being classified as a Sci Fi, so I was very pleased to discover a fun Universe of pelted races, humans and Space Elvs I know, how cool is that Well, we get to meet one of them, at least, when a Captain of the trader ship Earthrise, Reese is charged with finding and rescuing a mysterious Eldritch Hirianthial who has been captured by pirates and about to be given to slavers Reese has no experience at rescuing anything or anyone, since she can barely keep herself and her shipping business out of debt and still running But she owes a favor to an anonymous downer who once payed her loan to fix the ship s engines and this is it Captain Theresa Reese Eddings gives the details of the planned rescue to her crew, two cat people, Harat Shar , one of them a 7 foot Phoenix with metal feathers, and the bio organic specialist, a lady winged centaur like person called a Glaseahn Obviously, this universe is created for the fans of the FuriesThe best things Adventures Destinations Knowledge Relationships All of them start with uncomfortable moments It s only when you re grappling with something new that you might uncover something wonderful but unfortunately, that means grappling with something newThe gang rescues the Eldritch by the skin of their teeth and become a mark for the pirates In order to get their ship fixed and to stay low, they visit the Harat Shar planet of feline people and the culture there is absolutely fascinating I did end up wanting to smack some of those cats, but over all it wasinteresting than frustrating Money is very tight though and we get to visit the colony on Mars where the Captain comes from She goes to visit her female only family to borrow so she can fix the ship and pay her crew Family lets her down and I disliked them with passion This leads to her deciding to take on a dangerous contract which pays very well Things becomecomplicated as we goSometimes the things you fantasize about aren t what you end up really wanting,Did I mention that the only way the Captain relaxes is by reading trashy romance novels A girl after my own heart I enjoyed the book, despite it having some pacing issues and me wanting to kill Reese on many occasions for her stubborn pride and prickliness I see a lot of potential in this Universe and would like to continue with the rest of the series and maybe check the author s other work A good choice for Sci Fi and light Fantasy readers Now I wish you all Happy Reading and my you always find what you need in the pages of a good book

    Free ARC, provided by Netgalley, thank you Wasn t so sure at first, if I would like it, but about a quarter into the book I was in love with all of the main characters I adore Hirianthial, his psychic landscape is fantastic The Harat Shar are great comic characters and the bird like Bryer is fascinating The Flitzbe is like aadvanced tribble.Throw in a classic run chase and hide scenario with an asteroid field, and your swashbuckling space adventure is off to an entertaining ride.I reall Free ARC, provided by Netgalley, thank you Wasn t so sure at first, if I would like it, but about a quarter into the book I was in love with all of the main characters I adore Hirianthial, his psychic landscape is fantastic The Harat Shar are great comic characters and the bird like Bryer is fascinating The Flitzbe is like aadvanced tribble.Throw in a classic run chase and hide scenario with an asteroid field, and your swashbuckling space adventure is off to an entertaining ride.I really liked the second part of the book The swashbuckling comes to an abrupt stop, but it gives a great additional depth to the characters of Reese and Hirianthial The changing POV between those two is very well done and flows smoothly The setting is a nice bit of world building as well.And after the nice interlude on the planet of the hedonistic furry people and lots of eyebrow action we re back to the swashbuckling bit in part three of the book.I am not sure, why this book resonates so strongly with me Perhaps if I had picked it up at another time, it could have had the potential to bore me to death But I really liked it The characters are vibrant and their cultural misunderstandings and differences and moral codes feel so real I just want to hug them all and join the crew for a bitchfest about the injustice of life And then I want to ravish the Eldritch What a fab character I could laugh myself silly over Reese s addiction to Eldritch romance novels.Fun, well drawn characters, interesting plot, snark, humour, eyebrows We have a winner Onwards to the next installment

    Ufffffff It s complicated.On one hand, Earthrise is a book with an intriguing plot, well rounded characters, creative world building and, most importantly, a cover that borders to absolute divine perfection On the other hand it took me several months to finish it Why Let s just say that despite one of the most likable and unique casts that exists in fiction, despite the huge amount of creativity in terms of races, worlds, psychology and the complete unpredictability of the plot, there Ufffffff It s complicated.On one hand, Earthrise is a book with an intriguing plot, well rounded characters, creative world building and, most importantly, a cover that borders to absolute divine perfection On the other hand it took me several months to finish it Why Let s just say that despite one of the most likable and unique casts that exists in fiction, despite the huge amount of creativity in terms of races, worlds, psychology and the complete unpredictability of the plot, there was one single thing that failed to resonate with me and that s the writing style and pacing Ok, it s two things that are kind of connected.Nevertheless, I highly recommend giving Earthrise a go if you re a sci fi fan and if you re intrigued by the synopsis It s just as awesome as it sounds Be prepared for long and unnecessary dialogues, inner monologues flashbacks and other things that will slow the book down for you Conclusion I got bored way too easily and way too often Wish future readers better luck.Also, make sure to listen to the audiobook narration sample before investing any of your money in the audio version

    Alright, here it goes A semi crappy review bulked up with some pretty crappy pics but honestly, it s all I have the brain cells for any.I purchased and listened to the audio for this one, and I ll be honest, I don t think he was a great choice for this book Big shocker there, right His voice was way too raspy, whispery, and gravelly for the role He sounds like he should be voicing an old time, down and out cowboy like this,not a 30 year old woman like this, I listened to bits in the car Alright, here it goes A semi crappy review bulked up with some pretty crappy pics but honestly, it s all I have the brain cells for any.I purchased and listened to the audio for this one, and I ll be honest, I don t think he was a great choice for this book Big shocker there, right His voice was way too raspy, whispery, and gravelly for the role He sounds like he should be voicing an old time, down and out cowboy like this,not a 30 year old woman like this, I listened to bits in the car and my daughter even cringed listening She said he just sounded like Batman reading different lines So I guess he could even look like this Oops Wrong Batman But you get my drift I don t mean to be disparaging to the narrator I can totally see his voice being perfect for other roles.just not this one It took me several starts and stops before I decided to push through it and acclimate Unfortunately that never really happened I feel like the narration kept me disconnected from the characters and pulled me right out of the story If I had time to actually sit down and read, I think I would have enjoyed this one muchthan I did I know that there is a good story here I loved the cast aside from Reese, who is just prickly, irrational, and rude and who I hope ends up growing as a character Who wouldn t love overly amorous cat people think Khajiit , phoenixes, and space elves I mean come on, that s a winning combination Add mysterious benefactors, slave trades, harems, romance novels, inter planetary travel, and extreme matriarchal societies and you have yourself a fun space opera However, that last like 50% of the book just felt like it dragged on, and on, and on.When the last line was read, my only thought was, Finally That can t be good, right Again, I really think it was due to the poor narrator choice and not the content of the story I m even going to give book 2 a shot.I m giving it a solid 3 stars I thought about going 3.5 stars but in the end it just felt too long and Reese got on my nerves for the majority of the book Initial Review Wow, I feel like I ve been listening to this book for ehhhhh verrrrrrr I think it s in part because I didn t like the narrator and truly felt he was not a good choice for the part maybe another part, maybe another book, just not this one , but also because the last 40% or so of the book seemed to drag on It s bad when the audio comes to an end and the only thing I can think to say is, Finally RTC Maybe Hopefully But we all know how that goes
