Book #52 - Corsair

51YTLaRTieL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA300_SH20_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-34,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_After slipping back into a sci-fi track, I grabbed Corsair as a free book and was a bit disappointed. The writing is OK, but the story wasn't well done. It almost felt like the book was missing a few chapters at the beginning. The author tries to build this suspense of a future mercenary or military group protecting freighters from pirates. The captain of the ship has a history with a pirate that they are hoping to ambush and stop.

It's short, and it has potential, but it seems to be missing something from my perspective. I'd like to see a few other stories from the author and see if he can develop the characters and story more.
