Nightchaser (The Endeavour Trilogy) by [Bouchet, Amanda]

Genre: Romance, Sci-fi and fantasy

Well, my bad. I so loved Amanda’s Kingmaker trilogy and saw this was another fantasy read that I made a huge error and didn’t read description 😦 and its a Space orientated novel, something I perhaps could have guessed from the MC’s Captain title, though not necessarily. Sadly space fiction isn’t my thing but I struggled through this.

Its very well written, as with Kingmaker, same solid characters, exciting incidents, and of course its got that world is unfair and only MC can put it right feel. Tess is more proactive about that than Cat in the Kingmaker novels, Tess is actively working against the current government aiding those in need, even though she’s classed as a criminal. Cat is just trying to get through life without being discovered. For both though life is hard and whatever action they take is fraught with danger.

It follows a pretty standard format of suspense, action, danger and introducing new characters who become part of the main group. That’s all well set out, felt very real and had some interesting moments. I liked Tess and her crew, though would like to know more how they got where they are – later in series I guess. Big Guy, very ambiguous character that made me wonder what his story was and of course Shade, what were his motives, would everything fall back on him in the end. Of course looking at things from his viewpoint if very different from looking at issues from Tess view, where we have the advantage of seeing the overall picture.
There are people to root for and people to hate, but for me it was a hard slog, simply because its not a subject that interests me.

If space fiction was my bent I’d no doubt love this, but sadly it isn’t. I was hoping maybe I was just prejudiced, all those years of being force fed Stars Wars but kids and husband had maybe prejudiced my taste, but it proved not to be. Shame as there’s so many space fic novels I could read if only I enjoyed the genre…..

Stars:Three, fabulously written as was Kingmaker. Sadly for me the setting just isn’t what I enjoy reading, one I just can’t connect with.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
