I’m giving it a strong 8. It would have been a 9 if I’d been able to shift the mental image of Sissix as Barney the dinosaur with a ruff of feathers. And Rosemary as Nell from NCIS Los Angeles. The idea of those two, erm, coupling was worth at least a point off.

I gave it four stars on Goodreads.

I liked this very much. It wasn’t without flaws, but it felt fresh and well-intentioned. Not sure I’ll be in any hurry to read the sequel, but I had a fine time with this. It is rare to find a space opera that doesn’t take itself too seriously. It deserves praise for that alone.

I gave it 5, so harsh!

Glad you enjoyed it, GregP :-)
