Epub [Free Sapce human capital] author Sean Danker

Summary Free Sapce

Sassination attempts than I could conveniently count After all that there shouldn't have been anything simpler than a nice weekend with a charming Evagardian girl However some corners of the galaxy aren't as genteel as the Empire and Evagardians aren't universally loved. The Admiral an assassin and disguise expert and Salmagard a highly trained genetically engineered soldier saved each other in their first adventure Admiral Now they are hoping to enjoy some down time Unfortunately the Admiral is poisoned even before they meet for their date And that s just the beginning of their troublesThey pick up a carrier to do some sightseeing and meet two Imperials Sei and Diana who share the ride The car is diverted and the four end up kidnapped Admiral and Sei are separated to be traded while the women are retained for other uses But their captors do not know what they ve gotten themselves into as Salmagard and Diana will find a way to escape and go after their dates The Admiral and Sei are sold at auction and shipped off site They awaken on a planet where the people are living in an old earth style community It appears to be a religious cult led by a man who clearly to the Admiral s view has nefarious plans The Admiral doesn t know how he is going to get himself out of this predicamentThis seuel kicks off with a good hook and keeps on moving at a fast pace The cult world is a bit strange and confusing but it provides a backdrop of thought as Salmagard begins to see that her strict training may not have provided all she needs to know of reality and politics Neither side is full of all the right as clearly there are those who abuse power no matter what side they supposedly serve And in the end most will serve their own purposes rather than honor the loyalty that may have been expectedThe intrigue and mystery in this was not as intense as in book one This fills out of the backstory for the Admiral and Salmagard and I liked the new characters Sei and Diana Although this story is almost completely focused on the kidnapping and escape I did enjoy the fast paced action and the continued irreverent and pragmatic attitude the Admiral displays even when facing deathagain This made for a fast fun read The rather abrupt ending leaves an opening for new intrigue which I hope would be apparent in the next bookI received the title through NetGalley for an honest review

Which is how I ended up kidnapped to be traded as a commodity Their timing couldn't have been worse I'm not at my best but these people have no idea whom they're dealing with a highly trained genetically engineered soldier in the Imperial Service who happens to be my dat. TL DR Free Space by Sean Danker grabs a hold of the reader and never lets go This fast moving abduction tale keeps you turning the pages RecommendedThis review is copied from my website Visit for reviews Review In exchange for Berkley Publishing s generosity I m reviewing Sean Danker s Admiral series As part of a contest I won a hardcover Admiral and paperbacks of Free Space and The Glory of the Empress I reviewed Admiral already and have now finished Free Space This second book finds the Admiral taking Salmagard on vacation but as with their first voyage together this one takes a horrible detour This is deep space Taken from the viewpoint of the abductees Story As with Admiral Free Space is a survival story but in a completely different way The Admiral and Salmagard are kidnapped with two other Imperials for the purposes of human trafficking Because they are Imperials their absence will be noted and so for them it s a waiting game Survive long enough for the good guys to come rescue them But that wouldn t make for a very exciting story so complications reuire that the characters take an active role in their own survivalFor the beginning two thirds this novel is tilted towards the thriller genre Whereas Admiral had the horror baked in from the start the horror doesn t get to Free Space until two thirds of the way into the novel The terror of being kidnapped is there but due to the fantastic amounts of action I wouldn t classify this as a horror novel That being said the shift in gears at the two thirds mark was interesting and worked for me It opened up some new mysteries about the Evagardian universe that I d love to see explored Characters Free Space features the two best characters from the first novel The Admiral still develops as a character here but not as much as I had expected He s pretty much what you get from the first novel Salmagard s character gets depth and complexity here and her complicated feelings towards the Admiral clash with her complicated ties to her family She continues to be Mr Danker s best character in my opinionThe other two additions to this novel Diana and Sei are okay They have enough character building to fit into the novel without slowing it down too much Diana like Salmagard is a complex interesting character and her backstory could be interesting Sei however didn t really stand out He got some character work but I couldn t pick him out of a line up The rest of the characters in the novel aren t developed too deeply At the speed this story goes there isn t enough time for deep character study Of the others I found Willis and Freeber very entertaining They were sad and scary and human Worldbuilding In Admiral worldbuilding is kept to a minimum in order to maintain its high pace Free Space had worldbuilding but not much exploration of the new locales Free space sounds like a libertarian dream while being a humanitarian nightmare The final third presents some interesting uestions that will hopefully get a longer novelDiana s backstory hints at interesting military and scientific research For two books now we don t get much about the Evagardian military but we do know they have a widespread intelligence service Also they protect their citizens no matter where in the universe they are through the Galatic Rescue service These badasses go out to save Imperials in trouble We know that Evagard cares and supports its citizens In Free Space we learn that life on Empire s assistance is better than roughing it elsewhere It s possible that the Empire is a socialist success but we don t get enough to know for sure It seems like there s decent political systems underpinning the whole series Thoughts Like Admiral Free Space is a standalone novel The story ends but it sort of doesn t All the plot threads from the book are tied up by the final page However the ending leaves a big cliffhanger Maybe Mr Danker could want us to infer an ending All the plot lines are wrapped up and that is satisfying But the abrupt ending is a bit jarring I ll need to think and process the ending On the one hand it s frustrating because we re left in uncertainty On the other it s a bold artistic choice and I like it when authors take chances Only in fiction do we know everything and get a nice tidy denouement to exit us gently from the storyOnce again the last third of the novel is different than what came before It s an odd style but it works Again it s jarring so this time but it s not enough to throw me out of the story The shift introduces its own mysteries with its own urgency I d love to see an exploration of the various ingredients of this last portion Conclusion Free Space is a fast paced thriller SF novel It s is an excellent continuation of the Evagardian series Sean Danker wrote another intense action packed novel that tells a new adventure of the Admiral and the negotiator that he wants to date Recommended7 out of 10

In the follow up to Admiral the intergalactic war has ended and hostilities between the Evagardian Empire and the Commonwealth are officially over but the admiral is far from safe I'd impersonated a prince temporarily stopped a war escaped a deadly planet and survived as. This review can also be found at Carole s Random Life in BooksI really had a lot of fun reading this book The story was fast paced and imaginative and I found myself really wondering what could possibly happen next This is the second book in Sean Danker s Evagardian series and I do think that this book will work the best for readers of the series since the history of the characters is such an important part of the overall story It could possibly work as a stand alone but I don t think it would be uite as enjoyableThe Admiral and Salmagard are going away together for the weekend That should be a simple thing but it ends up being anything but simple Before they can even get to their destination they are kidnapped along with another pair Diana and Sei The kidnappers are uickly able to deal with the two women Salmagard and Diana but the men uickly prove to be a problemThe Admiral and Sei are in a really bad situation The kidnappers want to get rid of them but they keep running into obstacles The men have no idea what is going to happen to them and they really don t have any kind of chance to fight back and free themselves Meanwhile the women are working to try to find them but always seem to be one step behindI really liked how this story was told The alternating points of view worked incredibly well in this book It was really exciting to learn what was going on with the Admiral and then to learn how Salmagard was doing in the next chapter I kept wonder if they would ever be able to meet up with each other I loved all of the imaginative settings in this story as they moved through spaceI really liked the characters in this book The Admiral is still such a mystery but an interesting one He is smart and resourceful but you never know what he might be hiding Salmagard is loyal tough and refuses to give up I really liked Diana in this story maybe than Salmagard She is unusual but incredibly smart and works well under pressure I didn t really get as much of a feel for Sei but since he couldn t speak for most of the book I guess that is to be expectedI would recommend this book to others I had a whole lot of fun reading this book and ended up enjoying it just as much as Admiral if not a bit It was one of those books that really felt like it would make a great movie script I can t wait to see what Sean Danker comes up with next I received an advance reader edition of this book from Berkley Publishing Group Ace via NetGalleyInitial ThoughtsI thought this book was a lot of fun It was a bit different than Admiral but just as entertaining

    Originally published at Reading RealityWhat kind of story do you get when a completely unreliable narrator attempts to be at least semi reliable? And when the rest of the story is from the perspective of someone who always plays it straight but in this case just doesn’t know what part or game she is playing?It
