Beschreibung

How far will she go for freedom?

Amari Prokop murdered her first victim at age eight... 

She acquired her starship at twenty-four... 

She started smuggling people from Earth to the freedom on Europa for a price but found that blackmail and murder paid much better. All that wealth should have made her happy. But it didn't, nothing could fill that void she felt. She had to get out and start over. 

Now on her last job, all she has to do was kidnap Cloee Thompson from a government transport ship and hold her until Amari's employer was ready to take her. The promise of a pardon from the United Nations was too good to pass up. It was the only way to leave that life behind. 

Colin Ross was an Interplanetary Space Security Force (ISSF) agent, handpicked by the United Nations to recapture the mysterious terrorist Cloee Thompson and stop Amari, dead or alive. With his partner Marlie, they began the chase across the stars. 

Can Amari escape Colin and the ISSF? Will she get her freedom? Who will steal Amari's heart? Why is Cloee Thompson so important? Who is pulling strings and why?

Über den Autor

I grew up reading fantasy books and watching science fiction whenever I could. When I was young, I played role playing games within the fantasy genre. Close to the end of my military career, I started to write. It was something I always wanted to do but never did, until now.

    **SPOILERS**This was an awesome book. If you like Star Trek, or sci-fy/fantasy books then this is the one for you. It follows Amari, a space pirate, who is hired to kidnap a convicted terrorist form a prison transport ship. Soon things begin to go crazy.Inside jobs, government corruption, and false identities lead to a revolution of sorts.I would highly recommend this book to anyone above the age of 15.

    I was given this book as a Member Giveaway in exchange for an honest review. I tend to love sci fi/ fantasy books. This one was just ok, for me. There were definite spelling and grammar issues from time to time. In today's day and age, there is NO reason for those to exist in published books anymore. Having said that, it was a fun little story. As another reviewer said it's a "B-movie sci-fi adventure" based on a lady pirate in the future. The story could have used more depth, the characters could have used more development, it was a bit cheesy at times. But a fun little read.

    I received this book through library thing in exchange for an honest reviewFirst let me say I liked the story but I found it lacking some of the character development and the relationship developments did not seem natural I found it absurd that Amari would bare her soul to this prisoner she just met asking Cloee for relationship advice less than 24hrs of her being on the ship. Cloee wasn't there long enough to develop a rapor with Amari or any of the crew. I just did not get drawn in unfortunately this series is just not for me.

    Wow. It's like author reads TvTropes and took few trope character types and made this book.Some of reactions by characters is really strange. Weird religious vibe over whole thing too. I had to eyeroll over few "instant converts" praying right before die or thought will die soon.Don't bother with this book.

    Amari...I fell in love with Amari, an action-ready heroine not afraid to get her hands dirty for a good cause, and while hard and tough on the outside, just a little girl on the inside.Amari Prokop: female pirate with one more mission to complete before she retires and use her new found time time to build a family with the one she loves. Seemingly simple and straight-forward, one last mission to capture and hand over a hacker with a history. But what seemed simple at first, turns into a quest where Amari chooses for good over evil, not for her own benefit, but for that of the whole of mankind.

    Very good book. I'll need to find the next one to see what happens. Great characterization and descriptive ability from the writer. Steven Atwood is very skilled at presenting a good read that leaves you wanting more. Well definitely look for more books by this author. I like his writing style and attention to detail. If you like dystopian mixed with sci-fi this is the book that combines them seamlessly. Highly recommend.

    Having received this through a LibraryThing giveaway and never having read this author before I was not sure what I would find within its pages. It is a SciFi type story with space vehicles and space pirates in a world that has leaders who are very corrupt. There are twists and turns and plenty of action with good flow but there are grammatical errors and issues that could be cleaned up a bit. I did put the book down from time to time to read other books so it did not keep me on the edge of my seat although in the end it was an enjoyable read. NOTE: My version had a different cover and ISBN.

    I’ve been a science fiction fan since reading Edgar Rice Burroughs’ John Carter series way back in the dark ages of the 1950s. I particularly like the swashbuckling space epics with the good guys battling evil a la Han Solo from the bridge of his Millennium Falcon. So, I approached Steven Atwood’s Amari with some pretty high expectations.Amari is the story of space pirate Amari Prokop, who does battle against the International Security Space Force (ISSF), the dreaded secret police of the UN. With her crew of pirates, including her XO, Borris, with whom she has a somewhat strange relationship, Amari dashes off to dispense justice and get some payback for past ISSF misdeeds when she is tasked with snatching a prisoner from an ISSF prisoner transport vessel.This is a competently written story – albeit with a few grammatical glitches that threw me a bit off stride, but not irrevocably so, and one or two minor internal inconsistencies – but, despite the potential, it doesn’t quite rise to the level I believe Atwood is capable of. Dialogue and descriptions are at time a bit wordy and cliché. That said, Amari is still a fun story to read I can see the four-star potential in Atwood’s writing, but alas, I can only give him three stars this time.

    So I m not a big fan of syfy books but this one made start to like this type of books.Amari its about a brave pirate with the same name who lives an unexpected adventure and face the decision to make about saving humanity from its dictators with the help of a few of course.Its not only about the adventure its also about the sacrifice that people in this world are willing to pay for there convictions and believes.Now lets talk a little about the interactions between the characters; I really liked Boris and Amari a true love story ,the interactions between both, the respect, the friendship and of course the love even if it ended in tragedy still a good story; Colin and Marly, I have to say that I appreciated Colin since the beginning because I knew that in the end he’ll do the right thing but for Marly in the contrary her character was really the villain one “to betray your friends like and even willing to sacrifice there life for power not good” but in the end she had what she deserve.And finally Cloee ahh the symbol of kindness, purety and forgiveness , and I expect a lot for her in the future.So if your are a fan of syfy this is defently a book to read and appreciate reading it.

    Amari By Steven AtwoodAmari is a science fiction, dystopian future, space adventure where the UN took over the running of the known universe after the GFC. They became power hungry tyrants that basically became thought police. They shipped people off to Mars to be “Re-educated” in the mines and others who escaped colonised Europa and beyond, creating places ripe for piracy and black market trading. I think I was hoping for Firefly and was sorely disappointed. I also thought I could read around the religious aspects of the book but couldn’t. The idea that all the religious people were calm and righteous and all those against religion were cruel, callous and fear their own death more than anything else really grated on me. Mainly because I read science fiction because it reflects the world quite well and I don’t see this as the way the world is. Simple being religious does not suddenly make you a perfect person as it seemed to do in this story.The further you go in the book the more grammatical errors there are, which slows down the reading process dramatically. If religion is the saviour of you world and you like science fiction with that flavour, this would be a great book for you but not me.I received this book from Library Thing’s Members Giveaways.
