Hello everyone and welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Starshot Chronicles: Royal Pains. I’d like to thank the author as well as Ravenswood Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book.
This story was a fun romp through space. I had fun with the actual plot of the book and there are a slew of interesting characters that were fun to read about. I do love that the author has created all these different alien races and occupations. I didn’t really like Querilla’s character too much but I loved Douglas Harley. He was like this courageous space maverick that charges in to get his girl. *swoon* I thought this book was really action packed which I liked a lot and the story was very interesting. I’m interested in reading more about the characters themselves and obviously of seeing more of Querilla and Douglas’ romance. I also would like to know more about Douglas’ history as he is the most interesting character to me.
While I liked the actual plot, it was a bit hard to get through due to the many grammatical errors in it. I’m not an editor and I make a ton of mistakes in my everyday writing but there seemed to be a bit too many. Also the descriptions were a little over the top and repeated a lot so that felt a bit weird when reading it. That aside, I thought it was an entertaining read. I like the whole bounty hunter space opera feel. I gave this book three stars because I liked the story and the cast of characters but found it a little hard to read.
