In his first assignment as an officer, Ishmael Horatio Wang finds himself fresh out of school, wet behind the ears, and way out of his depth. Aboard the William Tinker the senior officers are derelict and abusive, the crew demoralized and undisciplined, and change unwelcomed and dangerous. Can Horatio use what he learned aboard the Lois McKendrick to help the crew find the ship's heart? Or will he discover that bucking the system may come at too high a price?… (mais)

Wow. The enjoyment I've been getting from this series derives almost entirely from the low-conflict, light-hearted nature of the books. Double Share takes that and throws it out the window. My first reaction was positive. This could be something new, something great. Then reality set in.

Rather than the Lois McKendrick, our protaganists' home in the Deep Dark for the past few books, we now move the setting to a new ship, the William Tinker. This ship is gross. It's filthy, smells, everyone is nasty to one another, and, oh yeah, the entire female crew is being constantly raped.

I absolutely hate rape stories, whether in book, TV, or film. They make me want to throw up, and that's not how I enjoy spending my light-hearted reading time. Really, the only way to make it worse is to treat the rape as anything less than horrific. Guess what Nathan Lowell managed to do?

I'm not going to really spoil anything here because this book can't get any more spoiled. In the end, after the dust has settled and things are "resolved", the new female captain (who has witnessed these atrocities happening for years) keeps one of the rapists aboard. The character even manages to explain away what he did by saying "he's a good boy that fell in with a bad crowd". How about we tell that to the women he raped time and time again over the course of YEARS while they had no means of escape except the emptiness of space? How about we go back to the part when we learn that he has murdered women that have tried to fight back or complain?

This book was digsusting. Much more so than the William Tinker. ( )

This book in the series is a very dark departure from the first 3. Ishmael is put in a very bad situation of abuse aboard a new ship after graduating from the space academy. It is his first berth as an officer and he must now deal with a captain and crew that abuses the crew in very dark ways. He must grow and figure out how to deal with the situation. What can he do, how will he survive and help those being abused including himself. A very different story than the first three but I found it still a very good read. Will definitely continue to read the rest of the series. ( )

This was not okay. Sexual abuse run rampant. Horrible things. Completely incomprehensible plot moments.

The reviews say the next one is better. I'll give it a try. ( )

My feeling for this book, and for the entire series is that we have one story that has been chopped up amongst all the work of Mr. Lowell. Then stretched with inconsequential filler to try and make a tale book length.

I think that Lowell has reached a crisis point in his writing, and that is to understand that conflict involves making his hero have some skin in the game. His hero, Wang, never seems to be bothered about the circumstances that set him on the road he is on, so there is no growth there, nor does Wang seem to feel particularly challenged by any of the problems he has ever had. He could study for all the different types of ships jobs there are and pass. He could do this with ease, or that.

Never does the hero face a choice that could lead to death. So never is there truly any tenseness for the character to face. It is all easy peasy. Lowell has an interesting world. He has an interesting trade protocol, but what he fails at is bringing an interesting story to development.

These could be better served by learning from the story arc. To place challenges and development before us. With that as a goal these could be strong as the Liaden books are. But until Lowell takes a look at his efforts in such a context they aren't. ( )
