    1 thought on “Scout's Honor

    1. An old school action and adventure planetary romance Indeed, part of the fun was the meta effect of recognizing the old tropes.Scout First Class David Rice jumps through a wormhole and lands in the most disasterous local possible an asteroid belt With pulp SF concentration of asteroids, naturally He crash lands, barely managing to do it non lethally, and escapes with only one bag of supplies when his ship sinks into a lake Shortly thereafter a scream alerts him to a fight a woman being guarded b [...]

    2. It s a rocketing story that gets much of its velocity from super short chapters and a narrator with no internal life and no ability to storytell This is a recitation of events without reflection or opinion, which in this format gives him a disturbingly flat affect and makes his motives entirely cryptic When did he become attached enough to Princess Callan to swear an oath of loyalty How, as a baseline fact, does he feel about being shipwrecked Is it anything other than a small irritation to him [...]

    3. Super short chapters 2 to 3 pages moved the story along at a break neck pace without really going anywhere Our hero is just jumping back and forth from frying pan to fire trapped, escaping, trapped again, and rescuing the princess, losing the princess, then rescuing the princess again There is very little character development or world building.But.It is not all bad The story lacks depth, but it does have heart At times it is fun, and the characters have potential I get the feeling that I would [...]

    4. Short easy read, but too shallowToo short and shallow to be satisfying Insufficient character development for the story to create a world with enough depth for suspended disbelief.

    5. Great TributeThis is a fun ride similar to John Carter of Mars The characters are well developed and easy to relate to.
