One Jump Ahead
Jon & Lobo #1
Mark L. Van Name
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
We are introduced to a worn, weary, nano-bot infested mercenary. Who happens to have a thing about his sister, who he doesn’t know if she is alive or not. After the 5th time of him having a flashback, or a memory, or some whine, about her, it really got tiresome.
He also is incredibly stupid, getting tricked, because he won’t do the proper interrogation of people. He simply needed to do a quick search on the captive and he would have learned whose daughter she truly was.
But he buys a powerful AI ship, who he is always complaining about as being to smart-alecky.
Then everything ends happily and he sails off into the stars to continue his life.
If I come across the rest of the series for free, I’ll definitely read them, but wouldn’t really want to pay for them.
