The crew is driven by the need to secure enough income to keep their ship operational, set against their need to keep a low profile to avoid their adversaries.

If any book can be given its own genre then this would surely fall under the heading of FUN. Jacob Carnehan has settled down. The guys and girls here and stereotypical and not that exciting. He stared at Crake, shocked. In some ways this makes it like Cowboy Bebop, but I find those characters instantly a lot more likeable than these. This is the first book i’ve read, since i was in a reading club retributiob kids, at my local library. The job sounded too good to be true and it was.

Three armed thugs ensured they stayed there. I wasn’t disappointed, to say the least. I had a little trouble with the narrative at times, as it jumped from person to person, and the in between, the prior narrator gets lost when the next takes over.


Cbris series is so mind-blowingly awesome that any book pales in comparison. An engaging read from start to finish.

Retribution Falls Tales of the Ketty Jay.
