      When I was first offered a copy of Vick’s Vultures for review, the press release promised a mix of Firefly and Mad Max. That was enough to catch my interest. When I had a chance to talk with Scott Warren about the book, he also mentioned Discworld having influenced his tone. That was enough to pique my interest. When I actually sat down to read it, I discovered that its Firefly sense of roguish adventure was cut with a good deal of Star Trek vibes. That was enough to sustain my interest.I love [...]

      I received this from Netgalley and Parvus Press in exchange for an honest review.Outstanding space battle/sci-fi that made my "favorites" shelf.This one had some definite "Star Trek/Capt Kirk" vibe to it, especially like the old battles with the Klingons and the Romulans. I was reminded a lot of Star Trek VI: Undiscovered Country. Lots of plot twists, surprises (and the expected "surprises", too!). The writing was very good, and drew me in almost instantly. Very quick read, and very entertaining [...]

      A neat twist on Earth's entry into a larger universe.

      This military science fiction novel crossed my review desk ages ago. The publisher requested that I review it saying it had “pioneer spirit and the wisecracking tone of Firefly combined with the action and taut pacing of Mad Max: Fury Road.”At the mention of Firefly I was hooked. How could I resist?Vick’s Vultures is set in a future where Earth, far behind the rest of the universe in terms of technology, runs a privateering fleet of spaceships whose crews scavenge alien tech from wrecks. T [...]

      I received this book from Parvus Press, in exchange for an honest review.Just a few days ago I was reading a fellow blogger’s reasons for not accepting submissions from indie authors any longer, and I could sympathize with those reasons: more often than not, the writing and editing quality of these books is not exactly stellar, or the premise and promise of the stories don’t hold up against closer scrutiny. And that not even taking into account personal reading preferences and biases. My own [...]

      Innovative space opera.Humans have reached the stars,but it seems we were never all that alone. With 1500 other alien races about humanity isn't just the underdog, we're the bug you accidentally swatt in passing. Thus Victoria Martin and her ship The Vulture are on a scavenging mission for earth. Searching and scavenging for any peace of Xenotech they can find to make some money and reduce the enormous technology gap between us and all the rest. Things are just a bit complicated when a distress [...]

      Really good escapist fun, I enjoyed Vick's Vultures it some ways it brought back happy memories of reading Horatio Hornblower albeit space battles instead of on the high seas, also a touch of Firefly that fabulous TV series that showed that Science Fiction could be real fun.A lovely number of twists and turns, also a nice mix of characters, its not all about Victoria. Look forward very much to some sequels.

      I had some high expectations for Vick’s Vultures after reading the blurb. It seemed like the scope promised was just too big for 223 pages. I’m happy to report that relative newcomer Scott Warren rose to the hype. This is a really good sci-fi read in a market flooded with the paranormal. It embraces the traditional space opera, but brings fresh ideas to the future Warren has imagined. The writing is not only tight, it is consistent and approachable. Warren assumes an intelligent reader, not [...]

      A good story about humans as scavengers because we are late to the space race game. I enjoyed the story arc, characters, and the outcome. Ill look for more in this series.

      Well, that was a waste of time. As far as sci-fi goes, there was nothing truly original to be found here. I've come across every sci-fi concept before and in each case, it was done better somewhere else. I found it boring, cheesy and stupid all at the same time. The best thing you can say about it is that it's short.It's quite clear that the author was going for that Firefly feel that a lot of people seem to enjoy. However, it never quite sets up the universe well enough for you to know what the [...]

      3.5 starsI struggled with the beginning of this book, because there were a lot of technological descriptions that took me a while to get through. After a while I got used to it and my reading experience got a lot better. One of the major ideas in this book is that humans are a minor species. In the universe this story is set in, there are many empires that are more powerful than the humans. I loved the fact that humans were the underdogs. It really made me root for them eventhough I did not conn [...]

      Original Review HereI received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I am more of a fantasy girl than science fiction, but I thought I would give Vick’s Vultures a go. It was the first book set in space that that gripped me from the start. The pacing and tension kept me engaged, the characters made me laugh and the whole premise was engaging from the first page. A thoroughly enjoyable book!After picking up a distress signal, Vick takes her Vultures to salvage parts from one [...]

      Have I flown with Vick? Well, see right there, you're starting off with the wrong sort of question. ‘Course, I ain't faulting you none, I'd’ve asked the same to someone else before I knowed Vick. I've flown with lots of folks, some level-headed characters from epic space operas, the legends of all the classics, a few complicated and conflicted souls in the odd fantasy universe. But Vick, now, she's kinda in this special class of her own.When I first boarded, things were already moving pretty [...]

      Offering up insights into alien points of view, Scott Warren wields a mighty pen to create this electrifying tale of humanity's role as a "lesser empire" in the whole of the galaxy - lesser in size and technology but not in gumption.For the most part, other races of the galaxy don't even know humankind exists, let alone feel threatened by them. Those races aware of humanity know they are a force to be reckoned with; they will fight for survival when the need arises but are just as eager to make [...]

      REFRESHINGLY ORIGINAL The “official” synopsis of this work is online. Just let me say that once I began to read I unwillingly put it down, even for biological breaks; and eagerly await any (or all) sequels. The idea of humankind as stellar scavengers among more advanced, widespread, and most often belligerent races is new. Victoria Marin captains the Condor, a ship of the Union Earth Privateers (Earth’s military forces are no match for many of even the lesser empires and are used solely fo [...]

      Vick's Vultures was a complete surprise. I wasn't 100% sure what to expect when I started it, but I'll assure you it wasn't gripping writing, fun characters, an interesting universe (or two) inhabited by a slew of differing alien creatures and cultures, all of it fitting together almost seamlessly. And it darned sure wasn't a kick-butt female captain that wonderfully walked the line in which she was definitely a woman, but that never eclipsed her being a captain, nor did the author feel the need [...]

      Oh my gosh, did I love this book!Initially, I wasn't sure I was going to like it, battles in space are not normally my cup of tea. But I do like scifi, especially scifi with some snark in it (like Firefly). I had a very hard time putting this book down. I was reading on the Metro, there were delays because of single tracking, others were grumbling, I was not, because it meant I could keep reading for a little while longer. The characters are compelling, and the plot is gripping. I want to go to [...]

      Potential for a good series Action military space drama. Captain Victoria is commander of a privateer ship from Earth. They have been picking up salvage from battles fought by the three huge space empires and reverse engineering the components to boost Earth's technology. Was especially creative in alien diversity. The idea of locating a salvage vessel with survivors which included the First Prince of the Malagath Empire was good. This was a fun space romp.Areas for improvement would include exp [...]

      This was a fun sci-fi book where humans are lowly scavengers in space because there are hundreds of alien races that have more advanced technology and more worlds occupied. The greatest prize for human privateers to find is ship parts and designs they can salvage from derelict alien spaceships. Three alien races in particular are the top dogs of all as they have thousands of colonized worlds. When two of them get into a conflict a human ship ends up getting inadvertently involved and has to pull [...]

      Buy itGreat space opera. Refuse to call any book with as much heart as this one military sf. Reminds me of the warm feeling that the first books by CJ Cherryh gave me. Only got 4 stars because it has all the typos you expect in electronic books. Standards are standards. My reaction at the end was disbelief that the second volume of the series wasn't out yet. Yeah, I know, totally unfair to Scott. I'll just have to see if his fantasies are as good.

      REIn 2017, USA, it’s a little problematic to praise individuality. The yapping and shrieking of polarization being what it is today. But, be that as it may, this is a good, satisfying tale of very old codes applied to strange circumstances. And there is certainly substantial praise for individual characterizations here. Looking forward to more from this author. Seems like anyone enjoying reflections on humans earning their lives would do the same.

      What a pleasant surpriseAfter starting several books without finishing due to lack of interest and energy in the story, fell on this one and what a surprise. A well written, grab you by the sit of the pants space opera that I inhaled in one morning. A story that generate emotions about heroine and heroes who do what has to be done.Like a great tasting food that leaves the taste of “more, more” at the end.Looking forward to the second book.

      Fun fun funWell that was a page turner! A quick, fun little read. I do like sci-fi where humans are at the margins nibbling away and trying to make good while the star empires fight amongst themselves.

      As SF goes, pretty goodGlued to your chair sort of action. The plot is the usual chase, but it moves along and the characters are brought to life. For that matter it has what most literature is lacking.

      This book is great.I love the universe this book builds.It's a lot of fun, and I have listened to it several times now on audible and it is still enjoyable.I was going to write a review with a lot of spoilers, but you should read it yourself.
