Summary

Four hundred years in the future, the most dangerous criminals are kept in suspended animation aboard prison ships and 'rehabilitated' in a shared virtual reality environment. But Miska Storrow, a thief and hacker with a background in black ops, has stolen one of these ships, The Hangman's Daughter, and made it her own. Controlled by explosive collars and trained in virtual reality by the electronic ghost of a dead marine sergeant, the thieves, gangsters, murderers, and worse are transformed into Miska's own private indentured army: the Bastard Legion. Are the mercenaries just for fun and profit, or does Miska have a hidden purpose connected to her covert past?

Performance was 10/10 but the story was just ok

I liked this book. The voice actress was superb and everything was described in such a descriptive way which made the fight scenes amazing to listen to buy the story was just "ok". It was interesting and I did want to keep listening to the next chapter but at random times I would just phase out in the car sometimes and not bother rewinding the audio. Giving it a 4/5 from the voice acting for the amazing action scenes and bringing the main characters to life is such a descriptive way.

Action thriller sci-fi

I found this a bit of a struggle. The characters are a little wooden and a little too obvious. The storyline is okay-ish, but I do wish writers wouldn't sacrifice forward momentum with expositional back story.

It's ok, not great

In The Hangman's Daughter, a former marine takes over a prison space ship and uses the prisoners as mercenaries. The premise is intriguing, but there isn't much substance here. While there is a lot of action, and it is entertaining at times, most of the characters are pretty flat and have no development, and there is a lot lacking in the world building. The main character Miska is a tough character, but she never really shows any growth. We never figure out what any of Miska's true motivations are, other than avenging the death of her father. Overall, it misses a lot of its potential and ends up being just ok.

NOTE: I received this for free in exchange for an honest review.

Too much "F"oul language.

This was the first audible book we didn't finish.
Too much use of the F word in various forms.
I was in the Navy and have Marine friends. Nothing compares to this language.
