I get the reviews from others that this is similar to Firefly. There is something the rogue captain's speech pattern combined with 20th century style weapons and similar pieces that are Fireflyesque.

I really wanted to like this book but it really, really needs a line editor. Probably a good content editor too but definitely a line editor. I kept running into missing letters at the end of words but no punctuation to indicate that the character was cutoff in mid-sentence. There were some misspell

I tried to like this book. I started out at three stars, but as the story progressed, it went
down to just one star. characters are ok, but need more development. the main character arrives at his
morals just too quickly.
the story line also developed too quickly. the book goes from a battle scene to a meeting
on planning a battle. you don't know how you got there. there is not anough story in between
to let the reader know how it happened. the reader does not know where it is taking
let's talk

I Wanted to Like This Book . . .

Gunship(Book 1)by John Davis

I think I download this while I was looking for steam-punk novels, this is not steam-punk. It's more like Firefly with caveat's galore. It might remind some people of Firefly and some people might actually enjoy it. But there are a lot of strange style choices and sense of some sort of rush that starts from page one and goes right through the thing.

The sense of rush itself could be good but in this case it's just damaging. With the style of writing and everything that

It had good action and a simple, straightforward story. No surprises, so it was comfortable, in a way. Read my full review here:
