This is another book that I picked up for the Women of SciFi online book club. Never wanted to visit Circum Terra. I guess it could be an age thing, because the characters are quite young and their immaturity and inexperience should be taken into account, but both lived pretty extraordinary lives, and to my mind at least, that should have resulted in a more mature headspace for them both.

But this novel is written in the first person, and I found Sinistra’s discussion of her own body rather too much like what might come from a fairly juvenile male writer; it felt uncomfortably like she was objectifying herself, and not in an ironic way.

And Kit, her love interest, very fun! Darkship Thieves is narrated by the year-old heroine, who has the fighting skills of a professional soldier and thievea tech know-how of an engineer. He could have been more interesting; he actually had a few scenes that made me curious about thievfs.

I guess author wanted to re-make “Friday” but that did not go all too well. It’s old-school sci-fi dadkship of Heinlein’s juveniles, but with more grit and less social engineering. She ends up with a band of honorable thieves and, darkshp course, falling in love with the man she hates. Now you may think Baen covers are cheezy, demeaning to women or other things and quite likely be right but one thing they absolutely are is distinctive as a brand.

Hours and hours of talking about the main love interest who doesn’t even really seem to DO very much. I liked Thena more once she found someone to love and who loved her. University of Washington University Bookstore. Even though she argued incessantly with her father and his rules, she desperately desires to make sure he is ok. Spoiled, tempestuous, brilliant, beautiful, and dangerous, and with some series Daddy Issues, she finds herself seemingly being kidnapped aboard her own father’s space yacht by his mercenary goons.

I wavered between one and two stars on this. Is she a somewhat spoiled princess-y brat? I think I might have to go purchase the ebook now. In my view, at least, banning cloning — and the inevitable human enhancement — technology would ensure it would be used for all those purposes that people were afraid of.


In this case, the source of annoyance was the whole flap about clones and how the cloning technology was going to destroy the world.

A space tree that grows nuclear power cells. That’s a little disappointing, and it’s not actually explained very well why that should be the case.

No, I still like sci fi and fantasy, and even romance. Honestly, I feel like there’s a lot of potentia This book is So, instead of Circum Terra, she flees into the dangerous powertrees. Then her boy gets captured while making another power pod run, and she has to go back to Darkshkp for a confrontation with Daddy Dearest, in which we learn all kinds of deep dark secrets about Earth’s real history and Daddy’s sinister plans for his little girl, and an entire gang of space biker allies is introduced in the final act.

I think this book had a lot of unrealized potential, but for starters, I was distracted by the first person viewpoint in the present tense throughout the story. I would recommend Darkship Thieves to anyone who enjoys a light, fun read with a little romance thieevs a strong female lead character.
