    Inhaltsangabe

    Shortlisted for the Philip K. Dick Arard.

    The last thing Sanda remembers is her gunship exploding. She expected to be recovered by salvage medics and to awaken in friendly hands, patched up and ready to rejoin the fight. Instead she wakes up 230 years later, on a deserted enemy starship called The Light of Berossus - or, as he prefers to call himself, 'Bero'.

    Bero tells Sanda the war is lost. That the entire star system is dead. But is that the full story? After all, in the vastness of space, anything is possible....

    Dazzling space battles, deadly galactic politics and rogue AI collide in Velocity Weapon, an epic space opera from award-winning author Megan E. O'Keefe.

    Lacks inspiration and depth

    The idea behind the story is not bad, but lacks greatly in storytelling. Also, the author clearly has little scientific knowledge, and so much so that it hurts the story's credibility as a whole.
    World building is not convincing, either, as well as character development. They mostly remain flat, bordering on annoying (especially the overstretched "romance"). What also struck me as weird is that the author doesn't seem to understand military rand and procedure, which would've been easy to research. A sergeant commanding a ship... well, no.
    The only highlight is the narrator, who is able to perform a lot of characters in a distibuishable and versatile way. This clearly gains the audio book an extra star.
    All in all an unmemorable story only worth your attention if you're starving for the next Peter F. Hamilton novel.

    It got better the more I heard

    The beginning was a bit hit and miss with me as the speaker with his accent sold the story as a bit cheesy, it took me a while to get used to him, but it did get steadily better, I enjoyed this book immensely and would recommend it, if you like space opera that is
