Rating: 3 out of 5.

For me, this science fiction book is a miss. I just couldn’t get into it. It is well-written and packed with action, but it just didn’t interest me.

Persephone Station is backwater planet that the Serrao-Orlov Corporation has taken an intense interest in. The people that run the corporation know the planet’s secrets, and want to exploit them. Rosie owns a bar that criminals, and those that want to hire them, come to do business. Rosie hires a group of mercenaries led by Angel to do a job for her that pits them against Serrao-Orlov Corporation. The odds are not in Angel’s favor, but she will do everything she can to win.

There is very little world building or character development, which is a shame because most of the characters are female (Girl Power, yay!), and there is gay, lesbian, bisexual and non-binary characters in the book. It would have been nice to delve more into these characters before all of the fighting started. Most of the focus is on describing the surroundings and the enormous amount of fighting that goes on in the book. There is nothing wrong with a lot of action, and I like reading it. But, without fleshing out more about why the conflict is happening, and making the characters more accessible so that I want to invest in them, I had a hard time wanting to finish the book. I may be in the minority. There may be a lot of people that will like this book.

Thank you to NetGalley and Gallery/Saga Press for the digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
