Today I’m sharing an ARC review of Zenith. I wrote this review about a year and a half ago before I had this blog. so I thought I’d post it here before I posted the review to the sequel. I wasn’t a very critical reader and wrote this review in terms of enjoyment. I don’t know if my review would be the same now, after having read and reviewed many books.

Most know Androma Racella as the Bloody Baroness, a powerful mercenary whose reign of terror stretches across the Mirabel Galaxy. To those aboard her glass starship, Marauder, however, she’s just Andi, their friend and fearless leader.
But when a routine mission goes awry, the Marauder‘s all-girl crew is tested as they find themselves in a treacherous situation and at the mercy of a sadistic bounty hunter from Andi’s past.
Meanwhile, across the galaxy, a ruthless ruler waits in the shadows of the planet Xen Ptera, biding her time to exact revenge for the destruction of her people. The pieces of her deadly plan are about to fall into place, unleashing a plot that will tear Mirabel in two.
Andi and her crew embark on a dangerous, soul-testing journey that could restore order to their ship or just as easily start a war that will devour worlds. As the Marauder hurtles toward the unknown, and Mirabel hangs in the balance, the only certainty is that in a galaxy run on lies and illusion, no one can be trusted

Thank you to Netagalley and HQ for the EARC. All opinions are my own.
I really enjoyed this book. I hardly read sci-fi so it took me some time to get into and over a month to read but it was worth it. I think the authors have done a good job.
This book is about Andi and her crew, going around the galaxy to do different missions, when they are caught, and tasked to do their most difficult mission yet. From there, chaos ensues.
The characters are well developed and thought out. I liked Andi and all her crew. They seemed like a close-knit family and it was really good to see their interactions. I also liked Dex and learning about the history he had Andi shared.
The story was in some parts a bit slow, and I didn’t particularly enjoy the flashbacks but they were essential to the story. It had many different viewpoints so we could see other parts of the story unfold and see the whole picture. It was also very interesting to learn about the different planets and their customs.
I didn’t expect the different twists and turns this book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The ending has me excited for the next book.
