Don’t let the title stop you!

By Oniwasabi, author of The Monster They Deserve

Oct 17, 2013: I have no idea if my own experience is shared or unique to me, but I looked at this title SEVERAL times and it kept me from jumping into the book.

So, regardless of that, READ THIS BOOK! If you like sci fi at least. The story is quite engaging, the main characters are all distinct and you can actually feel like they are different people interacting and not an author having a stilted conversation with himself. I would have liked a little more development on some of the minor crew members and other such characters, since about half the crew possess solid character identity and the other half are just kinda interchangeable scenery. The author also does an excellent job in explaining just enough of the sci fi tech to tell his story without bogging anything down with weird technical exposition.

All in all I highly recommend this one, in spite of the (to me) off-putting title. I eagerly await more progress on the sequel.
