Great intro to a potential series

I found this story when browsing among the free books to get a start to my e-library. In general, I prefer to read full-length novels, rather than short stories, however to compare this to the movie industry, what I usually read are the movies, and this story came across as a single tv episode - on it's own it's ok, but I definitely want to see the rest of the series.

There is enough detail to give you a good feel about each of the characters, but Hogarth did a good job of not putting in so much detail that you are distracted from the rest of the story.

Good intro story! Abrupt ending.

Despite me giving only 3 stars for this one, this is actually a *good* introduction to the universe -- the viewpoint character is a human, and seeing his Pelted crewmembers through his eyes provides some of the context that the others may lack.

There's a plot, tension... There's an exciting twist. There's some universe introduction and building. It's told smoothly, without huge infodumps. I'm curling up and anticipating something nice and juicy with the buildup... And it stops, and I fall splat on my face and wail, "But... Where's the REST of it?!?!"

If there is later a sequel, this would probably pull up to four stars, easy, and likely even a full five. On its own, it rings a little hollow as a story.

But it's a freebie, and it's a good introduction to the universe of the Pelted if you haven't read the others, and it fills out some universe-building and technology if you *have* read the others, so it's perfectly worthwhile to pick up!

    Great intro into the world, I would like the series

    Good character build up but not over done for a short story. You get a peek into the situation of the universe. I didnt see a continuation of this world anywhete, and that is a shame

    Great Trek-style yarn

    Exciting, terse, tense.
