4.5 stars

This is what I was thinking to myself: "Self, how is it possible that Aleksandr Freaking Voinov, The Genius, is THIS good?!" and also "Hey dork, what took you so long to read this book?"

What I so loved about Scorpion is that every single character meant something in this book...had a role...not one was a throwaway. That's pretty amazing. Widowmaker. Vistar An Grekaran. Riktan. Dev. Kiran. Lady. High Priest. Smoke. Executioner. Puppy.

You know what else I loved? Kendras...and his intense loyalty to the Scorpions.

And you know what else? Adrastes...freaking DREAM MAN...I love him!

And you know what else? Selvan...mine...he's mine...I want to hug him and kiss him and hold him and pet him!

And you know what else? Kendras and Adrastes...*sigh*...

And you know what else? The MC's were men of COLOR!

And you know what else? There were female warriors and leaders!


Now, my only tiny grievance is this: Steel. I liked him! And after being prominent in the 1st half of the book, he basically disappeared in the 2nd half. Felt like AV gave up on him. And then (view spoiler). Heck...I miss him. I think there was potential for more story...

Per usual, great book, too short, waiting on a sequel, highly recommended.

Monique This is in the pile, I am stretching his books out as much as possible!... Unfortunately Mr. Voinov as great as he is, is unable to write fast enough to keep up with my insatiable need...


Heller I picked this one up. How could I resist? Great review, Susan.

I know! I didn't want to devour all his stuff. The books are such a treat. I hope he hurries w/ the sequel to this one!

Em Great review Susan, this looks so good!


Ilhem You know hat else?...
Yeah, Susan! You nailed it! The list could go on endlessly.
