If you liked Firefly you’ll probably like this book. The author’s exposition is as subtle as a brick at times, but it’s a well told tale even if the confrontation with the villain is a bit of an anti-climax.

This was a light, entertaining story. But for a few twists, it could easily be the story of some other ship and crew in the Firefly universe. I don't mean that as a criticism; the story is action-packed, well told with some interesting characters....just like Firefly. Brooks does a great job of mixing back story with fast paced action.
The narration is excellent; Lynch does a great job with different accents and voices. Pacing is a bit fast but not really a problem.
It appears to be the first in a series: I will definitely be back for more.

I'm ok with tropes as they are familiar and comforting. However when the author uses a cliche to describe character annd plot points as a crutch so they don't have to actually spend effort writing something creative. That's not very enjoyable to read. Also the narrator is particularly bad... from half hearted to muddled accents to poor attempts at stage whispering or shouting. There are a couple of scenes where a character slips into another persona to con or trick someone ... but despite the book explaining what accent or speech pattern he is using to pretend to be someone else... the narrator basically uses the same voice... except one version has a slight sore throat, the other a stuffed nose.
