Sarah A. Hoyt’s Darkship Thieves

Who would have thought K.T Bradford was right! I wouldn’t have thought so either, but I just finished reading DarkShip Thieves by Sarah A. Hoyt and it was magnificent! 5 stars.

In Darkship Thieves, Sarah weaves the tale of the feisty and slightly barking heiress Athena Hera Sinistra, on the run from her fathers goons, swept off to a secret life with a strange group of genetically engineered exiles from earth. This is the first in Sarah’s Usaian stories and is part of a trilogy. Sarah tells an engaging story of mystery and adventure while weaving in some of her own brand of political ideas as part of the history and back story in the universe. She does it more subtly than Heinlein but at least as engagingly.

Who would have thought K.T. Bradord would be right? Sarah is after all a POC women of colour! Although I suspect K.T. would rage quit Sarah’s book as containing to much ungood think. I loved it from beginning to end and couldn’t put it down, and I highly recommend it. Get it today!
