Dazzling space battles, intergalactic politics, and rogue AI collide in Velocity Weapon, the first book in this epic space opera by award-winning author Megan O'Keefe. Sanda and Biran Greeve were siblings destined for greatness. A high-flying sergeant, Sanda has the skills to take down any enemy combatant.

wasn't sure about this one, first of a trilogy, so at the end of it i had to commit to reading through the other two to really be sure. it's the beginning of a big story, but i also see signs that the author is not quite carrying it off. the writing is in the New Pulp sf category, and to me kind of shallow in terms of characters and settings. lots of interesting moments though, so hopefully it's headed somewhere interesting. onward to book two....

I picked this book up on a whim on a family trip to the local Barnes & Noble. And then it sat on various coffee, side, and end tables before I finally got around to it a year later.
Part of me is glad I waited so long, because if I hadn’t then I would have been waiting for the second book in the series to come out (which it did back in July) and been left for months with burning unanswered questions.
I ordered the 2nd book moments after finishing this one, once my idiot ass saw all the “book 1” indicators.
It’s paced perfectly to lead you right into the second book, and the cliffhanger is perfect.
Action, intrigue, spaceships, and great world-building and frankly I have questions. Can’t wait to see what gets answered! ( )

Engrossing plot with a breakneck pace, check.
Badass female main character (military type) check.
Politicians being politicians, check.
Cool AI’s, check.
Something wicked this way comes, check.

Anyway, Velocity Weapon is an entertaining space opera, without being a great or groundbreaking book. Of course, not every book has to be groundbreaking…

I enjoyed following Sanda (the badass, see above) and Bero the sentient spaceship. Bero is by far the most interesting character in the book and I would have liked to see more of him as well as chapters with his POV. Biran’s character is basically “I want to save my sister!” and “Oh, did I make the wrong decision again?” Boring…
The plot involving Jules and her heist gang also bored me – things happened, characters reacted, and nothing was resolved (the author was saving that for the next book, obviously).
To be fair, I flew through the second half of the book – there were some very interesting reveals, last minute rescues, and hints of dark conspiracies.

There is an annoying trope in some sci-fi books set hundreds and thousands of years into the future: people still listen to classical composer X, read this and that classic novel, and everyone in every star system understands the cultural references. I get it, humanity has been so busy colonising space that no one has had the time to create new classics☺ Velocity Weapon is guilty of that as well, with Beethoven and Le Petit Prince thrown in. Grrrrrrr.

I am beginning to sound grumpy, but this was an entertaining read, despite its flaws.

It was a hard book to start. There were too many lines going back and forth, too many time frames, but the longer you read the book the easier it became. Honestly, a few times the book made me go "what the hell..." while re-reading the bombshell that happened. Fantastic read overall, just felt the ending was lacking any type of closure. I didn't realize it was a series until I read this book, and I will look forward to reading the second in it. ( )

DNF. Only 5% in, but the writing bogs down in the brother's point of view for no reason I can figure out, and I don't have the energy to slog through it.
