    B&N

    I looked at the reviews to see if i might like to purchase this book, only to find that people were actually not writing book reviews, they are writing a description of themselves as if they are on a dating site. Am i missing something B&N? Is this what book reviews have come to on B&N? Hey B&N start screening your book reviews please!

    The first story in this series, B-Team, really impressed me.  A complete story arch, the great beginnings of a series, all in a nice, easy to read package.

    I was quite disappointed, then, when the second in the series was 1/4 of the length, and not a story at all, apparently just a setup of things to come.  None of the same characters, none of the action.  A depressing and depressingly short  interlude.

    Had the first book not been so good, I probably would have been happier with this one.  But the first set expectations very high, and this second part failed to deliver.

    Short story

    After getting over 200 pages in the first book, I was mildly disappointed to get less than 70 in this one. Its a decent short story; nothing exceptional. It is good if you have a little time and want to read something.

    A man is on a ship when it gets boarded. A brief story about what happens to him. Written like a play so it's a little weird to read, but still a good story.
