Scifi book, where female leading character named her guns! Every time I read it, I cringe.
Random thoughts on the writing style
- The narrator of this book is female protagonist Devi Morris, bad and ambitious ass-kicker, and the greatest melee fighter of her generation (or so she tells us herself). Her voice is flat, young-adultish/teen, imature and not very intellegent. This bad ass immediately falls for the cook named Rupert. And she named her guns and gear/suit, Sacha, Lady Gray. Come on.
- This book is fantasy book masquerading itself as a scifi book. In comparison with young-adult scifi books (which are actually cheesy romance+comics), it is definitely an improvement. And let's be clear - I like urban-fantasy books. But I have high standards for scifi genre. I prefer Honor Harrington books.
