    All the time I was reading this I was thinking three stars, but in the end I'm giving two. Not because of the "oh, did you think there wouldn't be more volumes?" ending, just from a general feeling of dissatisfaction. Early on I read "gunnery sergeant"and I thought "oh no, not anot...

    DNF @ 44% I tried with this book. I really tried. I wanted to like it, I wanted to at least finish it. But I just don't care about the characters enough to keep reading. I enjoyed the concept and the worldbuilding, which is why I read as much as I did and why I'm giving this a 2 ...

    This is the sort of novel that is excellent for readers who love a good twist. You'll not only get one -- you'll get several and all of them are based around some interesting ideas. There's also a heavy sense of paranoia, which could be rather a lot of fun. For me, however, the book wa...

    This book was a beast of a read. Took me forever to get through it but mainly because I was a bit too busy I read for about a week. It?s a great first book in a series. Or maybe part of a duo? Not sure but it?s thrilling and so interesting and I was lost within the pages every ...

    This is an extremely fun, space opera with a fast pace that is maintained throughout 500+ pages. I really enjoyed all the POV characters, but especially the interaction between Sanda the stranded Gunnery ship pilot and Bero the A.I. of the enemy ship she is stranded on. I also enjoyed ...

    Hugely enjoyable space opera, with fantastic worldbuilding, some great characters and an intriguing starship AI. I really enjoyed the way in which the novel develops - it's twisty and exciting - and while there is a dark foreboding over much of the events, it's also light and fun. I lo...

    Velocity Weapon is a fast-paced three-act play of intrigue, moral ambiguity, and science fiction fun. It contains everything I look for in Scifi? a future that is futuristic in every way: Tech, culture, and space. O?Keefe has real talent for describing spacey stuff with everyday me...

    3.5 Stars Video Review: https://youtu.be/dz0GG6yuIJs As someone obsessed with space opera, I was eager to read Velocity Weapon, the first book in a brand new space opera series. My excitement only grew when I learned that it was written by a female author with a predominant female...

    This one started out well, but . . . . kind of tailed off, like she had run out of ideas? And I didn't really connect with any of the characters except the ship AI. Which is pretty cool. But, 500+ pages! For Book #1 of a new series, by a new author. . . . I'd read something else by h...

    DNF at 43%. It was a good book but way too long, and got boring as a result. It was a really interesting concept and honestly, I am very very interested to find out how it ends, but it was taking way too long to get there. At times it felt like the plot wasn't moving forward at all....

    Gunnery Sergeant Sanda Greeve wakes up on an enemy ship, alone, naked and missing a leg. The shocks don't stop there, as the ship she's on is controlled by an AI who tells her that she's slept for two hundred and thirty years and both her civilization of Ada Prime and the enemy civiliz...

    Very cinematographic read, full of twists and turns! The narration is divided mostly between the siblings, gunnery sergeant Sanda stranded alone on an enemy ship controlled by an AI with attitude some 230 years in the future, and her brother Biran, in the present, who tries everyth...

    4.5 stars. Did you ever fall in love with a dangerous, somewhat murderous sentient spaceship suffering from trauma? Well, I did, and his name is The Light of Berossus, Bero to his friends. Or friend, who in this case is Sanda Greeve, gunnery sergeant. Sanda's on board Bero, who tel...

    New favorite: ACQUIRED. This book was a whirlwind of plot twists, adventure, interesting characters, politicking, and AWESOME. I loved the diversity (disabled MC, siblings raised by two dads, etc.), the sibling relationship, the sentient ship, the epic story scope, and all of the TWIST...

    I inhaled Velocity Weapon in a few hours, it was so much fun, also brilliantly written, dark and beautiful and a rollicking good adventure. Sanda is a purely wonderful character, having woken up on an intelligent ship years into the future, everyone lost to her. Said ship Bero is a me...

    Audible version. The book was well written & the narrator did a decent enough job but I couldn?t get into this book. The only character that interested me was the spaceship Bero. I was completely uninterested in the Aliens species, the humans, or politics at play. The story arc j...

    (Free review copy) An adult scifi with great crossover appeal for those who love YA. It's action packed with awesome complicated characters set around two planets on the outer edge of the galaxy fighting for use of keeper controlled gateway tech. Siblings Sanda, a gunship pilot, a...

    I was the wrong audience for this book because I am not usually a fan of space opera, and I abandoned this book at the 35% mark, soon after Sanda made one too many references to Tomas?s dimples. Up to that point, I had been given very little description of what this world looked like...

    I'm putting this aside for now at 18%. I'm not ready to completely DNF it, but I'm just not feeling it at the moment. I'm pretty sure that this is on me though, and not the book, so I'll probably give it another go sometime later. ...

    An amazing debut! I was thrilled by this book, it did a great job surprising me and keeping me on my toes. I loved the characters and I look forward to the continuation of this series. I'm just wowed by the story, the way the multiple storylines coalesced at the end. There is so muc...

    4.5 stars I can?t remember the last time I read a book that got me with so many ?Excuse, me, WHAT?? moments. This is one tricksy author. And she?s put together more than just a well crafted story, it?s a genuinely fun reading experience that has you smiling at your own sho...

    I really couldn?t get into this. While Sanda?s storyline was ? as far as I read ? straightforward enough and easy to follow, the book is made of really short chapters, and between two Sanda chapters you always get one or more set ?before?, following other characters. I unde...

    Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the free ebook! All thoughts/opinions are my own. It's best to consider this book based on the three perspective characters we follow: Sanda (arguably the main character), Biran (Sanda's brother and a secondary force in her storyline), an...
