Book Review: At the Edges by Alden Lila Reedy

BLURB:

Joan and her starship crew are in the business of slaves—specifically, rescuing as many as possible from the oppressive Empire. After dropping off their latest passengers and resupplying, Joan and her second-in-command, Luana, decide to ferry out citizens looking to escape imperial clutches. It means they risk taking on spies, but when the first meeting goes well, they decide to chance it.

But a trip that starts well soon turns sour, between problems with the ship, passengers asking uncomfortable questions, and a confession from Luana that Joan fears will only end in disappointment and destroy the friendship they’ve already built.

And before they have a chance to sort their problems out, the whole journey abruptly goes from bad to worse….

REVIEW:

I think my attention span keeps getting shorter, either that or the book just wasn't for me. At first, I couldn't get past the first three pages without getting bored, put I forged ahead and made it to page ten, however by then I kept waiting for a hook to grab my attention and either I skipped too many pages or there wasn't one interesting enough to keep me interested. In the end, I skipped to page 65 (out of 70 pages) and I hoped I would feel like I had missed something exciting so as to go back to the pages I skipped, yet nothing happened.
This Book Just wasn't for me. Too flat, too boring, too many unnecessary details that should have come after I cared enough about the characters to know all that.
