They’re only good at being bad.
Cora Saros is just trying her best to join the family business of theft and intergalactic smuggling. Unfortunately, she’s a total disaster.
After landing herself in prison following an attempted heist gone very wrong, she strikes a bargain with the prison warden: He’ll expunge her record if she brings back a long-lost treasure rumored to grant immortality.
Cora is skeptical, but with no other way out of prison (and back in her family’s good graces), she has no choice but to assemble a crew from her collection of misfit cellmates—a disgraced warrior from an alien planet; a cocky pirate who claims to have the largest ship in the galaxy; and a glitch-prone robot with a penchant for baking—and take off after the fabled prize.
But the ragtag group soon discovers that not only is the too-good-to-be-true treasure very real, but they’re also not the only crew on the hunt for it. And it’s definitely a prize worth killing for.
Whip-smart and utterly charming, this irreverent sci-fi adventure is perfect for fans of "Guardians of the Galaxy," The Lunar Chronicles, and "Firefly."
~ BOOK REVIEW for The Good for Nothings ~
(?) out of 5 stars
I got a late start on this one, and I'm only about half way through, so I'll have to get back to you on it! But, so far, so good! Nothings that has blown my socks off yet, but the story seems to be moving right along. The title here says this is Book #6 of a series, but this is the first I heard that; and it so far reads just fine as a standalone tale. There is a host of quirky main characters whom we seem to be very slowly getting to know. Right now they are on a quest, and we'll just have to see how things go! Honestly, it greatly reminds me of the original "Guardians of the Galaxy" movie, which took me awhile to warm up to as well, but soon became one of my favorite movies. We'll see if this story holds true to form!
