Alien mercenary company he’s soon on the run with a gorgeous space princess Urged to harvest souls by his AI partner Jay must learn to put his awesome powers to work for the good guys The universe just got a whole lot dangerous and a hell of a lot fu. An interesting story that starts out strong and despite some wobbling in the middle manages to end on a pretty high noteThe main character Jay is a likeable protagonist who seems to believe he's a white knight while engaging in the occasional bloodbath The sentient ship is an aggressive jerk who I wished could get punished on occasion but by the end of the story had really grown on meThe concept of the currency in this story is uite interesting and actually bothers to explain itself uite well I even found myself occasionally wishing that they could visit that one planet near the beginning to grind for currencyAside from the flip flopping characters I only had two real complaints about the story The first would be that the main character feels a bit too rude by times being less accepting of other people Probably the best example of this would be the gay joke he makes at the expense of his childhood bullies near the beginning The other problem I had was the sort of space Lothario side of the main character Sure this is far less than other similar stories in the genre but it really made me cringe at one point near the endAll in all this was an enjoyable story and I will probably continue it in the future Ms Marmite Lovers Secret Tea Party visit that one planet near the beginning to grind for currencyAside from the flip flopping characters I only had two real complaints about the story The first would be that the main character feels a bit too rude by times being less accepting of other people Probably the best example of this would be the gay joke he makes at the expense of his childhood bullies near the beginning The other problem I had was the sort of space Lothario side of the main character Sure this is far less than other similar stories in the genre but it really made me cringe at one point near the endAll in all this was an enjoyable story and I will probably continue it in the future

    SighSeriously bro?Michael Scott Earle is a good writer who makes cool interesting worlds full of tight action where stuff explodes He is and I mean this with all respect and praise being a big fan of Bay's work myself the Michael Bay of writing He deserves all the money and at least ten Oscars for coolness at the very least Earle is a prolific artist who knows exactly who to put things together to get your engines going His works are fantastic and almost certainly should make their way into cinema one day My only complaintmy ONLY criticismis that with a few exceptionsall of his main protagonists are kind of stupidor rather than stupid there's this cloying white hatwhite knight chaotic goodness that sometimes works when Earle posits them right and sometimes doesn't The tiger guy in Earles other series works because as much as you'll eventually get sick of hearing people go on and on about how honorable he is and how he's a man of honor or whateverhe is at his core a good guy who made a single bad choice for good reasons and the whole point of the series is that he's trying to make up for the bad he's done and pay forward the good that's been done for him His decisions make sense because the side characters and the author give us enough context for us to be able to get on board with them In Deathship however somehow that good guy template fails and comes across as just kind of stupid and kind of clinch in a bad way He decides to do what seems to be the seemingly right thing to do even though ultimately it comes across as stupidand does it for the stupidest reasonslike say deciding the pretty terroristpolitical dissident you captured is the heroine and the entire society you happen to be in is evil becauseshe's pretty and well spoken and your shady mercenary co workers are kind of jerks It was barely tolerable because Earle telegraphed it and I knew what was going to happen from the synopsis but dangIt came off as slightly too saccharine and apropos I could have understood if there's been some background reason or personal reason for the MC making the decision that he did I'd have understood if there's been some build up of the empire to prove to me the reader before the mc made his decision that his actions made sense but it was literally a mercenary doing what he was paid and ordered to dohearing five minutes of sob story and then deciding you know whatshe's probably the good guythat's stupid and to make matters worse the background Earle gave our protagonist makes the mc's choice feel sort of tone deaf He was a member of the armed forces fighting in the middle east Are you telling me a that someone whose fought in an actual war wouldn't know that an enemy combatant would have some narrative in their head about why their side were right and his side was wrong? Seriously? SERIOUSLY? No that's so dumb that I actually had to stop reading for a bit before I could keep going I had to wait and suspend my sense of disbelief till the very air around me turned into unicorn darts because that was justdumb to the point of being painful And sure Earle tried to toss in a throwaway line about some military blockade and how the Heresay were trying to get medicine to puppies or something along the lines but by that point I was already disengaged and ultimately national policies and politics are little too complicated for a single incident tossed in with a few sentences and no additional context to justify things I mean for real the only thing that could possibly justify the decision at that point was the fact that our MC was basically a man from mars with no stake or understanding of the fight he's inExcept that doesn't make anything better because then I imagine a literal man from mars plopping down in the middle east signing up with a security company and then deciding the sexy terrorist he's been sent to arrest might have a point after all and oh look there's my kindle out the stinking windowgood thing makes these things sturdyThe point is basically for the main plot to get rolling you have to shut off your brain and leave it there for a good bit The book gets better later though and if you don't bother thinking inorganic and forced their initial alliance was you'll have a lot of fun

    The story was pretty ok till the MC just switches sides abruptly then tells some random all of his secrets and then a relationship forms out of nowhere I almost feel like the author believe all men are stupid and simple aswell because every main character in his books becomes retarded when they see a women that they find attractive regardless if the women trys to kill them or not

    Homophobic insult from MCHere's the deal I read Michael Scott Earle's Star Justice Series a loved it Earle has a wonderful way with words However I only got 2% into this book stopped reading and promptly gave it one star for one single reason The MC insults 3 men by saying word for word “Don’t worry After I beat the shit out of you I'll call your husbands to come down and collect your sorry asses” By using being gay as a insult the MC now comes across as a homophobic douche After reading that little gem I instantly disliked for him; he is supposed to be the good guy and now in two sentences you've ruined him This seems to be a bit of a issue with Earle I just finished Lion's uest Undefeated and that book had a couple of characters supposedly good people make some offensive comments about the MC and a misunderstanding about him being gay Because of this I'm not going to look into any other of Earle's series which is sad because he really is a great writer

    I have followed this author since discovering his Destroyer series a little over a year ago So far this is my third favorite series that MSE writes behind the Destroyer and Star Justice series and before the Tamer seriesThis is one of the best first book of a series that I have read in a while A little slow of a start but then the book jumps right to the action Several homages to Star Wars just a shame the hot twins did not call the hero Obi Jay Kenobi and let him know he was their only hope with a little white robot There is great combat action in this book with minimal boring stuff between No graphic sex in this first book unlike some of the author’s other works I like the twist with the hot twins any guy who has dated a woman with a sister twin or not knows his butt is toast if he looks at her sister Jay thought he was in trouble as there are very few men out there who have not dreamed of being with a pair of hot twinsThe powered armor suit with the leg spikes reminded me of the Glitter Boy powered armor from Rifts Unusual and creative uses of a power suit in this book The author shows great creativity in creating unusual situations for his hero The prison assault is especially enjoyable one of the best that I have readI didn’t care for the several repetitions of the whole character upgrade menu Reading the same menu again and again was annoying I dislike most LitRPG material and I can usually skip through it fairly fast but having to wade through the same menu several times irritated me Made me think that Jay was too damned stupid to remember what was on the menu and what he wanted to upgrade with the soulsUnless the author had a particular reason for listing that damn menu several times that I am unaware of that is the only real complaint I have about this book

    I f'n love this book The MC is alright That AI tho I'd have his kids I swear to god I would I loved the AI it was like having that one friend of yours that has nothing but bad ideas but every once in a while you give in and do something stupid with them that ends up with you telling your other friendssee what had happened was Yeah it's kinda like that But the only difference is that you ALSO MC doesn't have a well of inspiration to pull from so your MC great ideas are only marginally better than your friends Bad ideas The witter banter between the MC and the AI is what really keeps the book afloat If you've ever played Portal you know what I'm talking about I am thoroughly endorsing this book for anyone who's into space opera Be thee warnedThere is a LOT of cursing gratuitous amount of death and off the wall shenanigans throughout this bookIF you're looking for what I gen read that has massive sex romps in it Pass this up But if you want someone who specializes in doing dentistry with a sledge hammerstep right up

    What's with all these weak little main chars? You get kidnapped by a murder hobo tortured for a while it attempts to implant a torture toy in your chest only to have that prevented by a bloody BIBLE of all the daft horrid things then goes on to kidnap you to the arse end of who gives a fuck where it tells you to work monkeywork for its entertainment and profit Said murder hobo is then set upon by space insects those were delightful I'd happily read about of them getting suished who starts to cut it apart Whyyy is the reaction to SAVE the torturous kidnapping wannabe slaving murder hobo? You ain't getting back boy stop fronting just let the thing die pref screaming Then as though this weak mewling reaction to kidnapping and torture isn't enough at the end of the book the MC even goes all misty eyed Because you know let's just forget the kidnapping And the torturing And the enslaving You're still a slave Jay you just can't feel your chains

    Would have liked it better if it was shorter I found myself skiping much of it Over half way through though Sea the AI death ship that harvests souls for power and Our MC is the Kidnapped harvester really start to click Sea being a AI ship comments on everything MC does and instead of the usual sarcastic comments we get a super aggressive AI obsessed with murder This leads to it getting upset that MC is not killing people and instead thinking with his hormones not an exact uote but it mostly goes like this Why are you not killing why do you focus on breeding with this creatureAs for the MC himself I don't care much for him The whole southern boy thing has been done beforeIf you can get this on kindle unlimited go for it
