    There is absolutely no way that I could give this book any less than five stars. If you're an avid watcher of my Youtube channel you got to watch me experience and fall head over heels in love with A big Ship at the Edge of the Universe (the first volume to this series) by author Alex ...

    4.5 stars~ "It swung a claw at her, arms extending like a bullwhip crack, and Nilah leapt off one of the shelves to get clear. Her calf muscle seared with pain as knifelike claws grazed her skin, tearing her pant leg. She landed hard, but soundly, and dashed off after Boots and Aish...

    Alright 4.5. I almost gave this book a 4* because it suffers from being the 2nd book in a series where the first book is one of my favorite books of the year. The book starts off a bit slow and unfortunately follows the traditional path of explaining the back story as the novel unfolds...

    A thrilling sequel to my favorite sci-fi read of the year. Which makes Bad Deal another favorite sci-fi of the year. I will have more words to add to this later, but for now, all I can say is: READ THIS BOOK! That is all. ...

    More ?Firefly? meets Jack Vance?s ?Demon Princes? series, with nonstop action and wow, a LOT of explosions and gruesome injuries. One character says it all: ?With all the stupid crap we do, it?s amazing we made it this far.? I do wish that the author would stop kill...

    I adore the first book in this series. Here's a relevant part of my review for it: "Fast and furious, we get space battles, planet battles, magic battles, fisticuffs, and more. I devoured all the breakneck action scenes. Another note of interest is that this book mixes a sci-fi space s...

    The second book in Alex White's The Salvagers series lacks a bit of the, well, magic of the first--we already know the characters and the world, so there's less of a sense of discovery in this one--but makes up for it with a tighter plot with a well-defined antagonist who's less nebulo...

    Second book slump but still worth reading, let?s hope number three restores our faith in the series. ...

    What an amazing book! I love the crew of Capricious, every single one member is unique and hard not to like. In this installment we get even more adventure with battles, magic and a lot of badassery. ...

    Loving this series. Can't wait for the third installment! ...

    Not the best books, and everyone of the main characters sure do get messed up a lot-like they should realistically die in each book- but this is an entertaining story that moves at a great pace. I enjoy burning through the pages to find out what happens next. Bring on book 3. ...

    4.5 stars ...

    White's second novel in The Salvagers series continues the story of our favorite crew of heroes and their fight against the 'gods' of the galaxy. While not quite as good as the first volume, we do get a rip-roaring continuation of the story, some growth in our crew and two new members ...

    Alright 4.5. I almost gave this book a 4* because it suffers from being the 2nd book in a series where the first book is one of my favorite books of the year. The book starts off a bit slow and unfortunately follows the traditional path of explaining the back story as the novel unfolds...

    A thrilling sequel to my favorite sci-fi read of the year. Which makes Bad Deal another favorite sci-fi of the year. I will have more words to add to this later, but for now, all I can say is: READ THIS BOOK! That is all. ...

    More ?Firefly? meets Jack Vance?s ?Demon Princes? series, with nonstop action and wow, a LOT of explosions and gruesome injuries. One character says it all: ?With all the stupid crap we do, it?s amazing we made it this far.? I do wish that the author would stop kill...

    Excellent follow-up and I can't wait for the next one. ...

    I adore the first book in this series. Here's a relevant part of my review for it: "Fast and furious, we get space battles, planet battles, magic battles, fisticuffs, and more. I devoured all the breakneck action scenes. Another note of interest is that this book mixes a sci-fi space s...

    The second book in Alex White's The Salvagers series lacks a bit of the, well, magic of the first--we already know the characters and the world, so there's less of a sense of discovery in this one--but makes up for it with a tighter plot with a well-defined antagonist who's less nebulo...

    'I'm not putting love handles on my killbot.' EXCUSE ME, WHO ALLOWED THIS BOOK TO BE AS FANTASTIC AS IT IS?! There's basically non-stop action in this, which is almost a given for this series and I just love how deep everything goes and THE STAKES KEEP GETTING HIGH. I especially...

    After gushing about how much I loved A Big Ship at the End of the Universe, I'm thrilled to say that A Bad Deal was the perfect follow-up and now I can gush endlessly about both books, while waiting impatiently for the third. It was the best sequel I could have asked for, furthering th...

    A great followup to the first book, which was already quite lovely. Basically follows the original crew with new additions on their quest to try to deal with some of the fallout from the Harrow mission along with new contenders including a creepy new cult that has arisen. Like the firs...

    Summary + Thoughts: This is a sequel to A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe. It follows the crew as they go after another member of the conspiracy they uncovered in the first book. While the plot of the first book was a treasure-hunt, this one is a caper. One half of the team infilt...

    I loved the first book in the Salvagers series (A Big Ship At The End Of The Universe), prompting me to purchase the second book as soon as I finished ABSATEOTU. While I did enjoy the book, there was something missing: the feel of Firefly, which was a selling point of one review of the...

    Fantastic sequel! Yet again fast paced, great imagination accompanied with beautiful prose! I love how every character is well fleshed out and likable. The antagonists are evil and creepy at times! The hardships and action is suspenseful and the groups dedication strong :D! ...

    Second book slump but still worth reading, let?s hope number three restores our faith in the series. ...

    What an amazing book! I love the crew of Capricious, every single one member is unique and hard not to like. In this installment we get even more adventure with battles, magic and a lot of badassery. ...

    This is one of those books where the action sequences deliver, and you can actually believe in the team. It reminds me a bunch of early Culture novels, only instead of force fields and minds, you have magic shields and contracts tying everything together, like in the Craft Sequence but...

    This one was a 4.5 for me! A big thank you to Paola from Orbit for sending me a copy to read and review! *All opinions are my own.* I really enjoyed this continuation, almost as much as I enjoyed A Big Ship! We get to see a bit more from all of our favorite characters, and we ge...

    Loving this series. Can't wait for the third installment! ...

    Not the best books, and everyone of the main characters sure do get messed up a lot-like they should realistically die in each book- but this is an entertaining story that moves at a great pace. I enjoy burning through the pages to find out what happens next. Bring on book 3. ...

    There is absolutely no way that I could give this book any less than five stars. If you're an avid watcher of my Youtube channel you got to watch me experience and fall head over heels in love with A big Ship at the Edge of the Universe (the first volume to this series) by author Alex ...

    Alright 4.5. I almost gave this book a 4* because it suffers from being the 2nd book in a series where the first book is one of my favorite books of the year. The book starts off a bit slow and unfortunately follows the traditional path of explaining the back story as the novel unfolds...

    A thrilling sequel to my favorite sci-fi read of the year. Which makes Bad Deal another favorite sci-fi of the year. I will have more words to add to this later, but for now, all I can say is: READ THIS BOOK! That is all. ...

    More ?Firefly? meets Jack Vance?s ?Demon Princes? series, with nonstop action and wow, a LOT of explosions and gruesome injuries. One character says it all: ?With all the stupid crap we do, it?s amazing we made it this far.? I do wish that the author would stop kill...

    I adore the first book in this series. Here's a relevant part of my review for it: "Fast and furious, we get space battles, planet battles, magic battles, fisticuffs, and more. I devoured all the breakneck action scenes. Another note of interest is that this book mixes a sci-fi space s...

    The second book in Alex White's The Salvagers series lacks a bit of the, well, magic of the first--we already know the characters and the world, so there's less of a sense of discovery in this one--but makes up for it with a tighter plot with a well-defined antagonist who's less nebulo...

    I loved the first book in the Salvagers series (A Big Ship At The End Of The Universe), prompting me to purchase the second book as soon as I finished ABSATEOTU. While I did enjoy the book, there was something missing: the feel of Firefly, which was a selling point of one review of the...

    Fantastic sequel! Yet again fast paced, great imagination accompanied with beautiful prose! I love how every character is well fleshed out and likable. The antagonists are evil and creepy at times! The hardships and action is suspenseful and the groups dedication strong :D! ...

    Second book slump but still worth reading, let?s hope number three restores our faith in the series. ...

    What an amazing book! I love the crew of Capricious, every single one member is unique and hard not to like. In this installment we get even more adventure with battles, magic and a lot of badassery. ...

    This is one of those books where the action sequences deliver, and you can actually believe in the team. It reminds me a bunch of early Culture novels, only instead of force fields and minds, you have magic shields and contracts tying everything together, like in the Craft Sequence but...

    This one was a 4.5 for me! A big thank you to Paola from Orbit for sending me a copy to read and review! *All opinions are my own.* I really enjoyed this continuation, almost as much as I enjoyed A Big Ship! We get to see a bit more from all of our favorite characters, and we ge...

    Loving this series. Can't wait for the third installment! ...

    Not the best books, and everyone of the main characters sure do get messed up a lot-like they should realistically die in each book- but this is an entertaining story that moves at a great pace. I enjoy burning through the pages to find out what happens next. Bring on book 3. ...

    4.5 stars ...

    White's second novel in The Salvagers series continues the story of our favorite crew of heroes and their fight against the 'gods' of the galaxy. While not quite as good as the first volume, we do get a rip-roaring continuation of the story, some growth in our crew and two new members ...

    Just as good (maybe even better) than the first one. The stakes are higher, the enemies more dangerous, the romance more pronounced. I can't wait for the third book! ...

    Alright 4.5. I almost gave this book a 4* because it suffers from being the 2nd book in a series where the first book is one of my favorite books of the year. The book starts off a bit slow and unfortunately follows the traditional path of explaining the back story as the novel unfolds...

    A thrilling sequel to my favorite sci-fi read of the year. Which makes Bad Deal another favorite sci-fi of the year. I will have more words to add to this later, but for now, all I can say is: READ THIS BOOK! That is all. ...

    More ?Firefly? meets Jack Vance?s ?Demon Princes? series, with nonstop action and wow, a LOT of explosions and gruesome injuries. One character says it all: ?With all the stupid crap we do, it?s amazing we made it this far.? I do wish that the author would stop kill...

    Excellent follow-up and I can't wait for the next one. ...

    I adore the first book in this series. Here's a relevant part of my review for it: "Fast and furious, we get space battles, planet battles, magic battles, fisticuffs, and more. I devoured all the breakneck action scenes. Another note of interest is that this book mixes a sci-fi space s...

    The second book in Alex White's The Salvagers series lacks a bit of the, well, magic of the first--we already know the characters and the world, so there's less of a sense of discovery in this one--but makes up for it with a tighter plot with a well-defined antagonist who's less nebulo...

    So fucking good. ...

    Another fantastic adventure, loved every word. Such a brilliant, colourful universe. Loved the scale of the battles, all great, bring on book 2 ...

    'I'm not putting love handles on my killbot.' EXCUSE ME, WHO ALLOWED THIS BOOK TO BE AS FANTASTIC AS IT IS?! There's basically non-stop action in this, which is almost a given for this series and I just love how deep everything goes and THE STAKES KEEP GETTING HIGH. I especially...

    After gushing about how much I loved A Big Ship at the End of the Universe, I'm thrilled to say that A Bad Deal was the perfect follow-up and now I can gush endlessly about both books, while waiting impatiently for the third. It was the best sequel I could have asked for, furthering th...

    Summary + Thoughts: This is a sequel to A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe. It follows the crew as they go after another member of the conspiracy they uncovered in the first book. While the plot of the first book was a treasure-hunt, this one is a caper. One half of the team infilt...

    I loved the first book in the Salvagers series (A Big Ship At The End Of The Universe), prompting me to purchase the second book as soon as I finished ABSATEOTU. While I did enjoy the book, there was something missing: the feel of Firefly, which was a selling point of one review of the...

    Fantastic sequel! Yet again fast paced, great imagination accompanied with beautiful prose! I love how every character is well fleshed out and likable. The antagonists are evil and creepy at times! The hardships and action is suspenseful and the groups dedication strong :D! ...

    Second book slump but still worth reading, let?s hope number three restores our faith in the series. ...

    What an amazing book! I love the crew of Capricious, every single one member is unique and hard not to like. In this installment we get even more adventure with battles, magic and a lot of badassery. ...

    This is one of those books where the action sequences deliver, and you can actually believe in the team. It reminds me a bunch of early Culture novels, only instead of force fields and minds, you have magic shields and contracts tying everything together, like in the Craft Sequence but...

    This one was a 4.5 for me! A big thank you to Paola from Orbit for sending me a copy to read and review! *All opinions are my own.* I really enjoyed this continuation, almost as much as I enjoyed A Big Ship! We get to see a bit more from all of our favorite characters, and we ge...

    Loving this series. Can't wait for the third installment! ...

    Not the best books, and everyone of the main characters sure do get messed up a lot-like they should realistically die in each book- but this is an entertaining story that moves at a great pace. I enjoy burning through the pages to find out what happens next. Bring on book 3. ...

    4.5 stars ...

    White's second novel in The Salvagers series continues the story of our favorite crew of heroes and their fight against the 'gods' of the galaxy. While not quite as good as the first volume, we do get a rip-roaring continuation of the story, some growth in our crew and two new members ...

    Just as good (maybe even better) than the first one. The stakes are higher, the enemies more dangerous, the romance more pronounced. I can't wait for the third book! ...

    Truly loving this series! The characters are fantastic, the plot is fast paced, and it makes me want to read all the space operas?? Only sad I have to wait another year for the final book to come out! ...
