I am sad because this book had so much potential in my eyes, that I am a bit mad about how I feel. I loved how Pippa Grant made Joey, a female bad-ass pilot, who got more lady balls then guys. And generally speaking I think this is the most bad-ass female character I have ever read of. And here comes the sad part: she was so freaking strong and ballsy, but when she used “Dog” instead of “God” I could barely focused on anything else. You know that one thing that annoys you and you cannot stop seeing? I am a master at avoiding grammar mistakes, or other books mistakes that can happen without fault, but this was too much. I feel that it went against of what Joey was supposed to be. I really hope this is not an issue for you, so fingers crossed.
Here as some examples to see if i’m exaggerating:
“Ohmydog, yes, there” ; “Dog, more!!” … really? and it keeps going.
But on other part, the entire book was like a battle of wills, which was a plus for me. Matching performances on who can do it better. That is why I say it had so much potential. I love my characters smart, arrogant, witty, but I wanted a bit more on this book. Joey, maybe a bit more feminine, but Zeus was a good match for her. I loved that he had so much masculinity, that it did not bother him. I am aware that are a lot of girls there, like Zoey, tomboys, who maybe they face the same issues as her. SO kuddos to you, Pippa Grant, that you approached such a female lead.
The book is a standalone, but there are other books about the side characters in their group.
Here are the other books and which characters they take on.
