Two sisters ran away from home to join the crew of a spaceship They took on pirates faced down monsters and survived massacres an. The second Revenger book continues on with a pretty traditional Space Opera tale Where the first began with revenge on the mind the second focuses much on financial survival salvage and after a particularly awesome Reynolds homage to Reynolds sentient skull candy partnership with suits becoming a shambling hoard of zombies a desperate need to find SOMEPLACE to hide from shadow ships and recuperate That s where the real story picks up Intrigue lies torture cat and mouse antics and even picking up a rather interesting new crew memberAs a regular Space Opera it s fun It s than competent It s full of bickering sisters and an attempt to turn a mutiny into something much respectable So why did I knock off a star Because I m a huge fan of Reynold s adult fare and this isn t at THAT particular level The high science and deeply intricate worldbuilding and ideas I usually get are watered down here That s not to say it s poor for the sub genre or even the full SF genre It s right there with the most solid entries But Reynolds is usually a full head above the restI judge this a lesser example of his works Not bad at all and actually rather fun but not fantastic

    When starting this one I thought it's the last volume of the series so I kept expecting things to happen and the plot to advance and the book got to the end without much happening I figured out there must be at most another book by then but overall while the first person narration kept me turning the pages this felt like a thread the water novel to a large extent; i will take a look at book 3 but it better i

    45 stars The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars because the pacing was a little slow at times especially when the focus was on Adrana and Fura's relationship and all of their secrets It was also hard to believe that Adrana gave in so easily to partnering with Fura since in the beginning she was so adamant that she didn't want anything to do with her sister's obsession I loved their time at the bauble and at Wheel Strizzardy; t
