"You're not getting top shelf on a pirate ship."

Majesty's Offspring is a strong, accessible, military space sci-fi novel that would please military space opera fans, sci-fi and cyberpunk fans -- as well as readers unfamiliar with the subgenre who want to try something new. Though I have not read military space opera before, I love Battlestar Galactica and Firefly; this book made me think of both, particularly with the captain, the shuttle, and the fighter-jockey-in-space action (e.g., navigating

Characters felt flat except for two. 140 pages before we even see chorus. Story spins in circles.

Julius is a broken human that does not contribute to the story constructively in any way.

Laina is a good character trying to save humanity and chorus.

Chorus is a great character, but does show up for most of the book and has limited screen time for a book about majesty's offspring they are strangely missing. M140 pages into the book before we even see chorus....this book should have been about her..

I won this is a goodreads giveaway. Typically I wouldn't have given this book a try just because it's not my regular reading genre. I have to admit though, I was pleasently surprised. While it still isn't "my type" of book I enjoyed reading it.

Loved this book. A definite read for the avid science fiction fan. Very detailed and fast paced. Extremely well written. 5 stars, hands down. Thank you, A.J. Vega.

“Sometimes even the best-laid plans are going
to fail. When those plans fail, when your men are dead or dying,
and everything that was given to you to fight with is broken—the
only thing you have left that’s on your side is luck.” ch 18
Fast action. Love of flying, machines, battle tactics simplified. Lots of fights, even finding secret pirate home base, and training with simulated fire. Downside is long setup, atypical plot structure; people set up, end

I feel conflicted about Majesty's Offspring. There were aspects of the story that I enjoyed, that kept me turning pages, and there were others that annoyed me. For instance, it is totally petty of me, but I hated the idea of some sort of gravity streams surrounding the pirates hidden base. I'm sorry, but gravity doesn't flow, flux, stream, or change directions. That's not something that a far future device can fix either, because the proposed gravity streams were supposed to be some sort of semi ...more

Good story but

A good story but the author REALLY needs to go back to faith grade science and refresh his grasp of Newtonian physics. Space ships do not curve and bank in turns. There was also the complete lack of logic in the owners being wealthy but not repairing their space ship or even catching parts.

There is the reason I can only give three stars, great big gaping holes in logic and reason.,

Entertaining reading for the bus, waiting in line, or whenever you have a minute to kill... but it didn't really make me think. Plot is mildly interesting but not very complex, characters are on the shallow end, and the dialogue is trite. I really don't think space opera is my thing.

An interesting view on Future Technology, Nanobots and AIs.
