Snail Rating out of 5:
When outlaw Suzy Spitfire discovers her father was murdered after creating a super-duper artificial intelligence, she races across the solar system in search of the brain he built—but it’s a rough ride, and she’s soon forced to tangle with pirates, predators, and her father’s killer—as well as a man she thinks she can love.
Suzy Spitfire was nothing but fun. Spaceships, sex and trash-mouthed characters fill this book alongside an adventure across space that twists and turns at every corner. Sounds cheesy? It is a little – in the best way possible.
I thoroughly enjoyed the opening chapter of this novel. Snappy, humorous and full of enough descriptions to really create an atmosphere fitting out-of-space. I was immediately reminded of Futureama and was anticipating a quirky read full of unique characters. I wasn’t wrong. Suzy’s character really is fantastic. I felt like I’d known her character for a long time, and she took on an almost ant-hero kind of role which I like – a little different form your average hero!
Though this was a fun novel- full of quips and sexual tension between Suzie and Rodrigo, there wasn’t a lot of going on in the plot. Though it seems like it is all fast-paced and action-packed, it is essentially just a space-adventure and I started to get a little tired of the constant fights that Suzie and the gang seemed to find themselves in.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for some fast-paced space adventure. The premise of the novel is great – although I’d suggest, not entirely original- and would make an excellent space-adventure-action movie. – or even a cartoon, the cover art is pretty awesome.
