Not what was expected

Thought that this was a collection of monster tales... Nope. It's mostly a review / critique of the remake of Kong movie, with one lame story after it.

Corsair... this book was thrilling. The author really made what is in real life not very exciting a great depiction of near-future fictional space battles with satellites. The controversy among the characters definitely made for an exciting story. A lot of strong colorful personalities intermingle with satisfying sci-fi. This was a real journey and I was excited to know what happened next.

This novel of first contact and inter-species conflict was done from all angles, and it really grabbed me. I know giving the alien perspective as well as the human has been done before, but Cambias did a great job creating two distinct alien cultures. It wasn't just a story of humans meeting aliens; it was humans meeting aliens even though they've agreed with another race of aliens not to make contact. The ethical questions brought up by the resulting conflict makes for a thought-provoking read.

It's not a page-turner because it's action-packed from start to finish. It's a page-turner because it's just so darn interesting. It's not my normal fare, but I'm glad I gave it a whirl.
