This is thus far my first Sci-fi read ever. Some research demonstrates that this series is extremely popular in Russia. I give this book 5 stars because it incited me to read more sci-fi written by women.

I loved the character of Kiran throughout the first half of the book.
The second half has some inconsistencies, but the overall plotline is enjoyable.
The structure of the book consists of 14 stories, which makes it a very easy read filled with humor.

Elements that are covered: interplanetary wa

Mixed feelings on this I like the idea and it seemed to be going in a positive way. Kieran stayed independent but it seemed to loose focus, the character kept changing her mind. The plot itself couldn’t decide which way it wanted to go. I think I enjoyed it and want to read more, but I’m torn because it was all over the place. Enjoyable but confused

Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for a free copy for an honest opinion

I got an advanced copy to help with proofreading, and HOO BOY, let me tell y'all something. This is the futuristic sci-fi romance you have been looking for. Not only is the MC a badass female character, but the writing is probably the best and most humorous I have read in all of 2018. ...more

Received the book through netgalley. Sure glad I asked for it as this book is right up my alley. Highly recommend it!

Well this started out with a lot of potential. A young woman with interesting skills and a dangerous attitude gets embroiled in a very convoluted situation that no one will explain - except that she must obey. Yeah, that's not happening.

Unfortunately, there are so many things going on that it's hard to keep track of the motivations, political, romantic, and unknown. Things move very quickly, and random people intervene here and there.

There are 1-2 R-rated sex scenes. One or two typos too, but t

I would like to thank Netgalley and the author for this partnership.

We find Kiran, a space flirt. She wants to become the captain of the most popular ships of all time. Kidnapped and sent back to her home planet to forcibly marry the most powerful warrior. Many girls would dream of being princesses but to be the one from the kingdom of Eeristan but this one is not a fairy tale. The women upstairs have no rights and Kiran will never accept it. She will do everything to regain her freedom and lif

Space romance. He-man warriors and future technologies. And who doesn't like a princess story? Well, the princess for one, in this story.


But shame on kindle unlimited for making the first one free, then charging for the rest of the books in this series.

Kiran is a cadet at a prestigious space flight school. On her 18th birthday, her father appears and demands she return to the severely patriarchal planet where he rules a territory. Destined to an arranged marriage where she is expected to produce heirs of their clan. But a strong willed woman raised to be a warrior and not a submissive will create chaos on the planet as she escapes their machinations. A mixture of technology and medieval swords bring this novel with an explosive protagonist to ...more

Shelves: funny, light-reads, sci-fi
I picked up this book randomly because it was on a book list in an email that I subscribe to about sci-fi books. While the story was entertaining, and I liked the sci-fi elements, I felt like the plot and details were all over the place, and it read like fanfiction. I don't know if it's the author's writing style, or if it's the translation (I believe it's translated from Russian?), but it read awkwardly at times- how things were phrased. The writing was kind of confusing and seemed all over the ...more

In this story we follow Kiran, who has a good life going for her. She has a best friend, is an accomplished student and star cadet, and plays as hard as she works. They run schemes, make money, and have fun in the process. When they have to end one of their long running money making gigs, her mentor leaves her with ominous words of support.

Now, the only thing that made me bump this down to a 3.5 read for me, was the writing, I don't know if the translation somehow affected this, but at times th

Not what I expected

The title and summation lead me to expect a totally different kind of book. This seems to be an excuse to tease readers into a sex fantasy that leads nowhere. From a military cadet with an attitude to the virgin daughter given to the father's enemy first, then others to be used as the male sees fit. Submissive in all things. This first book set all in motion but refers you to the next one available for $4.99. I have to pass.

Very short. It appears that the story was chopped up to make more $$. The translator did an okay job. Formatting is not good.

The story itself had a good concept. Hard to tell from this “book” (excerpt) if the overall story will good and it makes me cautious to buy the next book.

Great book left off on a cliff hanger can't wait to read the next book in the series. although I would try to work on the font of the words they go from small to big makes it a little more challenging to read .

Meh

I have zero interest in this girl. Zero interest in the next book. Out smarting dominant men is an over worked plot.

Not my type of tale

Well written but just too flippant about some serious issues of society that deserve to be dealt with in a more serious manner.

Interesting

I definitely enjoyed this book. The Main Character was sassy and snarky in the best of ways.. Story line rolled along well. Ready to read the rest of the series.

Less than extraordinary

Please note this is a young adult book. If you do not like young adult books, do not read this.

The first half of the book was difficult to get through. The author’s world building ability is lacklustre, and only somewhat improves in the second half. Do not read this if you love world building.

The story does not have a HEA, or any ending at all, it just stops.

It’s an easy read, but not engaging enough for me to recommend. I would give it a 2.5/5 because it is mediocre.
