Yes I understand this book is to get you to the next one. However it should be FREE. Nov 17, Brent rated it did not like it. The author has finally gone too far with this book I'm sorry to say. In the past, I kind of looked past really poor grammar and spelling because the story was interesting, but in this book, the author has went wholesale into stealing other people's characters and plots with the use of thinly or not at all disguised versions of 20th century pop culture characters.

At best, these are copyright infringements; at worst plagiarism. In any case, a demonstration of laziness on the authors part.

I may read future works by this author, but will no longer pay for them - if he does not respect the IP rights of others, I see no reason to respect his. It doesn't matter how good a story is, if the author treats his readers with this level of contempt. Jul 25, Heidi rated it liked it Shelves: sff , self-small-publisher. Ooph this is a hard start. Hechtl is fitting a lot of background into the first few pages, and the lack of a truly professional editor definitely shows.
The action is good, Ooph this is a hard start.
The action is good, the characters are pretty good, and the writing is improving - definitely more editing would help. They're cheap quick reads, but the author has a lot of potential, and at the rate he's writing them he's going to be excellent in a few years.
Aug 11, Charles rated it liked it. Jan 18, Robert Marshall rated it it was amazing Shelves: recent-reads. Author Hechtl continues a great space opera. That said, he has a tendency to deliver long discourses that slow the pace. In spite of the errors, his books are worth reading and I look forward to additions to the series.
