Space Operas can be so entertaining and Fearless is just that: entertaining! Fast paced, entertaining plot that kept me hooked. I enjoyed my time reading this one.
I think the characters were well written. Each chapter is first person, and told by different people. I like when an author is able to execute multiple POVs without things getting confusing.
Lots of twists and turns. Lots of entertainment. This story was fun. Check out Fearless.
