Starshatter is a collection of action-packed short stories that are really fun to read. Each story serves as the origin story of a character who will eventually form the crew of the Starshatter. Considering each short story on its own, the stories are well written, exciting, and there are moments that really pull at your heartstrings. My favorite character is Anit'za. He's had the most opportunity to let his personality shine and his reactions to situations are a joy to read. I'm looking forward to seeing him in future adventures.


Anit'za kinda reminds me of Bal from SG1. He's well dressed, eccentric, and rather flippant. He's not a villain, though! 


SPOILER WARNING!

I think the plot progression could have been stronger if, at the end of each story, each character is shown heading off to the asteroid colony where they will run into an eccentric and fabulously dressed captain who makes them an offer to join him on a galaxy-saving mission. This would make it clear at the end of each origin story what the overall story is leading towards: building up an awesome crew to embark on a galaxy-saving mission. Kinda like Mass Effect 2, if you've ever played that game. By having a clear end goal, this creates a sense of plot-progression as readers finish reading each origin story.


Yay! The crew's finally all together. Let's have one big party, followed by a drunken brawl, before heading off to save the Galaxy!


Overall, Starshatter is an enjoyable read. It doesn't ever get boring. I recommend it. I look forward to finally seeing the crew in action together in the next book, Twin Suns of Carrolla.
