Description

A fleet of 40 worldships carrying the last remnants of humanity on a mission of survival trying to find a new home...but what if a new planet were found - would it bring happiness and hope - or start a war that would rip the fleet apart?

Coming from the poverty-stricken Elfor settlement on the Humility, Master Thief Yasmine Dufont just wants a way off the stinking ship and to put a whole lot of distance between her and gangster ex-boyfriend, Dimitri. But when a dream score of credits goes disastrously wrong, she’s left on the run with a hidden code that everyone seems to want to get their hands on.

Addict Detective Zhang Woo will do anything for his next fix. Distracted by his insatiable needs, broken by the murder of his last lover, he knows he’s on a downward spiral but has no idea how to stop it, and even if he could recover the stolen navigational code his boss wants so badly, should he?  

Breaking new stories has always been Kristi Carter’s passion - but there’s something not adding up about the report she’s currently covering. Digging deeper could have repercussions not just for her career but for her very life....

As the tensions rise between Elfors and the anti-Elfor movement headed by the sadistic Captain Pierre Jefferson, everyone knows the breaking point will be reached soon. Humanity may well have been saved from complete destruction - but what cost are they willing to pay to secure their future?

So disappointing after a wonderful 1st book

I absolutely loved the first book in this series, Worldship Humility. That story was fast-paced, complex, there was humour, the characters were loveable (or at least you could empathize with their story, their struggles). It's hard to believe the same author wrote Elfor Drop.

To start with, the tone of this book is very different. Gone is the light-hearted humour. The characters are behaving in ways that make them unlikeable. Yassie was a tough but kind and fair character. Now she is selfish, childish, and prone to drastic mood swings. Janie's attitude is left without depth or explanation - a kind and caring friend suddenly turns into an immature, self-pitying high school girl. The Osmosis character had such potential, and now he is reduced to a pathetic, immoral, cruel and selfish person in a way that your classic sci-fi nerd would never be - it's just completely inconsistent with how he started out in the first book.

Worst of all, the story is moving SO SLOWLY, due in large part to the numerous long, drawn-out sex scenes that seem to show up every hour. I get it, Chang is a sex addict. His internal struggles and self-loathing created a deep and complex character in the first book. Now, he's an excuse to turn this second book into a soft-porn romance novel. Knowing what position they started in, what position they tried next, how many orgasms each person had, whether they were on the floor or the bed...these details add nothing to the story. Instead, they are a distraction and rapidly become boring. Meanwhile, the story stagnates. There's nothing worse than an author using sex scenes badly, in a way that doesn't contribute to the story and thus comes across as gratuitous and desperate - as if the author knows there isn't enough story to fill the pages without putting all these extra scenes in. The scenes of violence are similarly too lengthy, too graphic, and that level of detail does nothing to advance the story.

I'm almost halfway through the book and already bored and disconnected from the characters. The last book was hard to put down, now I'm almost dreading picking this one up. I find myself fast-forwarding through scenes just to get to the damned point. How did a story that started out on such a note of excitement (the meaning of the code) with such possibilities end up so bloody boring and tedious? Poor writing, that's how.

The only good thing I can say about this book is the narrator does an excellent job, as he did in the first book, giving distinct voices to the characters. I'm going to finish the book (because I feel obligated to do so) and hope things pick up a bit. But so far I am deeply disappointed.

Well worth the credit, and as we all know....

All credits are good credits, no questions asked.

This follow-up is everything i've been hoping it would be. Big fan of the first book, very pleased.

Flawed but interesting story

Very compeling story marred by the unnecessary and graphic sex scenes which add nothing to the plot.

From interesting scifi to soft-core porn

Very disappointed. The first book was an interesting and a refreshing lighter take on the space opera style. I'm not quite sure what happened with the author but a soft-core sex scene every other chapter is quite annoying and cheap. The main story is still interesting and has potential, but the focus needs to come back on moving it forward.

It’s at the top of my list!!

When I listened to the first book I wasn’t expecting it to be one of the best books that I’ve heard so far on audible. And I have a very large library. Somehow, this book surpassed the first book!

Amazing Story - Sometimes a Little Overwrought

Story is awesome, characters are a little over the top sometimes but the banter is pretty hilarious. I really enjoy listening to this book!

I do have an issue with the structure though. I am almost positive that the editor for this audiobook got some sections mixed up.... either that or the author is going for some non-linear slaughterhouse 5 vibe, because every once in a while something will happen... and then like 15 minutes later after the story has progressed suddenly someone rushes in and exclaims about the thing that just happened.... 15 minutes ago. Like.... the timeline is a little confusing on when certain events happen and I swear some sections of the audiobook are mixed up.

It may just be me, mixing up characters, but I have noticed it a few times... and gone and rewound a bunch to try to make sure I’m not hearing things wrong.

That aside, it doesn’t actually take away from the story too much. I still love everything about this book... even if the Nazi comparisons are extremely overwrought and some characters cartoonishly exaggerated.... it kind of fits the style.

Fantastic

Amazing series so far. I'm deeply invested in the characters and was surprised by how the author drew me in. Excellent narration as well. Fantastic book two, can't wait to start book three.

Was hoping for more science fiction.

Made it sound like from the previous book that they were going to land on a new planet. More of an excuse for a sex novel less science fiction.

Entertaining & A Good Story. Love it!

I'm a little suprised by some of the comments this book was getting about the sex scenes. I'm sorry, but one of the characters is a literal sex-addict detective. What were you expecting?!
Since there's a lot of complaints in these reviews about the sex, I guess I'll mention the things they DIDN'T complain about. There's drug use, drinking (alcohol), violence, gore, and sexual assault. Pretty sure torture is mentioned at one point.

Now that that's out of the way, I loved this story. I agree the first story was good, the second one is better. Some characters got more story time, some new characters were added and I loved them all.
Regarding the narration, I feel like it's impressive the range of voices Colin Morgan does. A little distracting at some points, but still impressive.

Overall, an exciting space story filled with all the seedy and sordid things we pretend to be horrified by.
