Oops it turns out that this is seventh in a series. I kind of felt like I was walking into a book that had already started which makes sense since I didn't read the first six books. I'm not sure if I would have liked it more if I read the others or if this is just a case of a book not agreeing with me. I didn't hate it but there were a few parts that just made me cringe. I'm trying to block them out so I won't say what they were but you just might be able to figure it out if you read this book.
This cover would be really pretty if it didn't have people on it. I think a picture of the ship would have been a better choice but that's just my opinion. I did get a little confused when I started reading this book because it didn't make sense to me but it isn't so confusing that I feel like I need a decoder ring like I could have used with another book I read recently. I just found it very strange that this ship flying has prisoners on it that the guards can have sex with. Am I the only one confused by that? This is probably something that would make more sense if I read the other books in this series but I honestly don't feel like it. It wasn't a bad book but I'm not a fan of cringing while I'm reading and hoping there aren't more cringe worthy moments.
It almost gives off a Firefly vibe but not completely. I don't understand why the prisoners were on this ship. One of the prisoners manages to get up to no good since she's planning on hijacking a ship so she can create her own little patch of heaven. I'm kind of sad that I didn't enjoy this all that much because it does have a lot of potential but it was really short and for me anyway it is hard to wow me when the book is so short. So I'll be passing on the other books in this series because I already have a ton of series on my always growing list because stand alones are becoming extinct. Technically you can read this out of order but I don't recommend it since I've found only contemporaries are the only type of book that you really can read out of order without feeling that you're reading out of order if that makes any sense.
