3.5 stars.pretty funny entertaining read. I was bored and that was the only reason I finished this That and the fact that it was super short since it is a serial story First and I m harping on the same old thing, jiminy christmas if you don t understand how first person POV view works, please please please don t use it You can t change from present to past tense in the same sentence Next it seems as if the author didn t put much thought into the sci fi of it all It was just a mash up of Star Trek and Star Wars sci fi elements Then I was bored and that was the only reason I finished this That and the fact that it was super short since it is a serial story First and I m harping on the same old thing, jiminy christmas if you don t understand how first person POV view works, please please please don t use it You can t change from present to past tense in the same sentence Next it seems as if the author didn t put much thought into the sci fi of it all It was just a mash up of Star Trek and Star Wars sci fi elements Then there was not effort to make the aliens alien in any way except they had blue skin And then there was a bunch of sex that seemed wonky and oddly set up but still so human as to be fairly unbelievable.It did have some redeeming value in the spunky character of the heroine so that is why it gets 2 stars instead of one I ve been in such a book funk lately I m not sure if I ve really been striking out with crappy book selections or if it s just my inability to get into a story I was happy to easily get into this short story. NASA is short of cash so they hold a lottery open to the general public at 50 a ticket, Dani is the lucky winner and after 8 months intensive training she arrives on the international space station that s the prize Dani has hardly been there for 5 minutes when aliens kidnap her and another woman from the space station They intend to sell her and the other woman and nothing she says or does dissuades Dakhar her big blue captor not to do it.I was pleasantly surprised how well written this was t NASA is short of cash so they hold a lottery open to the general public at 50 a ticket, Dani is the lucky winner and after 8 months intensive training she arrives on the international space station that s the prize Dani has hardly been there for 5 minutes when aliens kidnap her and another woman from the space station They intend to sell her and the other woman and nothing she says or does dissuades Dakhar her big blue captor not to do it.I was pleasantly surprised how well written this was the characters are well drawn and the story well developed This does end on a cliffhanger but the final 2 parts are to follow very quickly Alien Space Pirates It s like this book was made for me Although I have to point out that this book is basically the first 4 chapters of a whole book that has been chopped up I really hate it when authors do that, but since this one is only charging 0.99 for them, and I ve paid that much for plenty of books that were only this long I m not too upset But really, authors don t do this, it s irritating However, it s a lot of fun to read, and really funny at times Dani is such a great charact Alien Space Pirates It s like this book was made for me Although I have to point out that this book is basically the first 4 chapters of a whole book that has been chopped up I really hate it when authors do that, but since this one is only charging 0.99 for them, and I ve paid that much for plenty of books that were only this long I m not too upset But really, authors don t do this, it s irritating However, it s a lot of fun to read, and really funny at times Dani is such a great character, showing the unrelenting drive of humans to fight for survival even when it s obvious there s no hope But just how she sees things, and describes them just helps paints the picture of her surroundings and creates this amazing world And Dakhar is interesting, because you know he s got a dark past, though not exactly the specifics, and you just want to find out what s happened Definitely had me snatching up the next book Although I hope she really stops overusing the term lowly I mean, even if everyone and their brother talks in a quiet voice, it d be nice if she found a new way to describe it Also if they had edited a little better Which is why it s only 3 Stars So fun I love the voice in this novella I became purely immersed in no time at all Cliffhanger warning, have book two next to you and ready to go. |FREE EBOOK ♿ Captured ♲ They say no one can hear you scream in space, and that really sucks for me Read 2 times01 09 2016When you read something called Alien Space Pirates you don t exactly expect it to be full of feels or anything, but I totally teared up It was really smart and funny and the characters were interesting ON TO THE NEXT 09 03 2016I like the characters and it was funny.
