    2. 3.5 starsFree on Kindle at time of reviewA sci-fi story that is not bogged down by unpronounceable words and textbook-like descriptions typical in a lot of sci-fi books! :) Reese is the captain of the Earthrise, a freighter ship with a crew of mixed species you've got cat-like aliens, a Phoenix, and one that walks on four legs and has wings. They decide to go on a mission to rescue an almost elf-like alien called an Eldritch. He is several hundreds of years old and has mental abilities. Once the [...]

    3. *** 3.75 ***A buddy read with the MacHalo Freaks:):):) I had no clue what to expect apart from this book being classified as a Sci-Fi, so I was very pleased to discover a fun Universe of pelted races, humans and Space Elvs!!!! I know, how cool is that??? Well, we get to meet one of them, at least, when a Captain of the trader ship Earthrise, Reese is charged with finding and rescuing a mysterious Eldritch Hirianthial who has been captured by pirates and about to be given to slavers Reese has no [...]

    4. The cover! The cover! I adore this cover! So much awesomesauce with this cover! A heroine with dark skin and braids. How often does THAT happen in any genre? Julie Dillon is just so amazing when it comes to creating incredible fantasy art with PoC front and center.Happy happy! Joy joy! Dancing around the room listening to the latest Blind Guardian. It's been ages since I've read such a kick-ass swashbuckling sci-fi adventure. The last one I'd read with a Black female lead was Ascension (which wa [...]

    5. Free ARC, provided by Netgalley, thank you!Wasn't so sure at first, if I would like it, but about a quarter into the book I was in love with all of the main characters. I adore Hirianthial, his psychic landscape is fantastic. The Harat-Shar are great comic characters and the bird-like Bryer is fascinating. The Flitzbe is like a more advanced tribble.Throw in a classic run-chase-and-hide scenario with an asteroid field, and your swashbuckling space adventure is off to an entertaining ride.I reall [...]

    6. I should learn to prioritize the books my dear wife recommends because this was great! It's been a while since I got so caught up in a series. I actually finished it in a week. Sure there were just three books but still. Especially since RL has been a bitch lately and my reading time is severely reduced. Back to the book. Earthrise introduces the reader to a universe filled with genetically engineered species called the Pelted. At some point the Pelted left Earth and colonised their own planets. [...]

    7. Ufffffff. It's complicated.On one hand, Earthrise is a book with an intriguing plot, well-rounded characters, creative world-building and, most importantly, a cover that borders to absolute divine perfection! On the other hand. it took me several months to finish it. Why? Let's just say that despite one of the most likable and unique casts that exists in fiction, despite the huge amount of creativity in terms of races, worlds, psychology and the complete unpredictability of the plot, there was o [...]

    8. Alright, here it goes. A semi-crappy review bulked up with some pretty crappy pics but honestly, it's all I have the brain cells for anymore.I purchased and listened to the audio for this one, and I'll be honest, I don't think he was a great choice for this book. Big shocker there, right? His voice was way too raspy, whispery, and gravelly for the role. He sounds like he should be voicing an old-time, down and out cowboy like this,not a 30 year old woman like this, I listened to bits in the car [...]

    9. This came highly recommended by people I respect, but I guess it's just a matter of taste. The writing and editing were done well. I love the space camp-y feel. But I just disliked the heroine so much that it ruined the book for me. By the end, her TSTL actions because of her anger towards everyone close to her drove me crazy. She almost got them all killed, because she refused to listen to an ally who had proven himself. I HATE heroines like that. To me she acted like some middle-school brat.ed [...]

    10. TL;DR Review:3.5 stars. Where have you been all my life, book? Even with my few complaints, where have you been?Longer Review:Full Disclosure: A review copy of this book was provided to me by Studio MCAH via Netgalley. I would like to thank the author, the publisher, and Netgalley for providing me this opportunity. All opinions expressed from here forward are my own.I almost put this book a little lower on my NetGalley pile because the NetGalley description had a side note that this was a space [...]

    11. The main character oh man. I shucked three stars from this otherwise excellent sci-fi novel just because the MC (Reese) is so poorly written. I get that she's supposed to be an anti-hero, oh boy do I get that, but the construction of her personality just makes no sense, at all, in any genre. She's constantly combative and angry (that's her personality, period); she has the galaxy's worst decision-making skills and shows absolutely no command capability, let alone the ability to be in a room wit [...]

    12. Abandoned. (DNF'd) I'm sorry to say that I just could not keep going with this audio book. The narration was just too off putting. The narrator's voice is extremely deep which under normal circumstances would be a plus for me, however in this case his voice was so raspy that it sounded to me like he was just recovering for a bad bought of laryngitis. There are odd sections of the audio that feel spliced together along with some kind of odd ambient noises in the background. I think that I like th [...]

    13. 3.75 stars. I found myself deeply annoyed by the main character's combative attitude and poor decision-making, but I kept reading to follow the other beings the storyline introduced. Here's hoping Reese is more tolerable in the next book in the series.

    14. After having read and reviewed A Rosary of Stones and Thorns for Hogarth, I’d kicked her campaign for Earthrise – mainly because it was 1) a book 2) by an author I was familiar with 3) that was offering a signed copy of the book upon completion for an exceptionally reasonable amount of money.Sold!So when I finally got my copy of Earthrise after having copy-edited Mindtouch for her, I was ecstatic. Earthrise promised me more Eldritch and more Pelted people and more interesting times in the sp [...]

    15. 3 1/2 starsI've been awful busy these days writing my own series, but I finally had the (LONG, ARDUOUS, 4-HOUR FLIGHT-INDUCED) free time to read a title about a black female protagonist in a sci-fi setting. Thankfully, I was recommended this book, and it's a delightful change of pace from things I've tried previously. Don't let the 3 1/2 star rating fool you. I'm prepared to go into detail, and please don't think there is anything overtly WRONG with the book. I actually like it more than I've li [...]

    16. This book was absolutely perfect for me.I don't know how to explain it, maybe by making a list: perfect characters, action but no non-stop-action, alternative humans and aliens, an every day live story, endearing characters, humour, a lot of good psychology, people who act like real people, a sentiment of reality in an alternative world and, at least but not last, a very easy and comfortable read.Some people could say that the tonality is a little bit naive, but not me. On the contrary, I love t [...]

    17. 4.5 StarsWhen I picked up this full length sci-fi novel for free on , I was hoping for something with a bit of a 'Firefly' feel, and it scratched my itch. It may not be quite as humorous as 'Firefly', but the relationships between captain and crew and the solid world building did it for me. Since I don't read a lot of sci-fi I had a little trouble at first with all the different aliens on the ship (and there aren't many, it's just me) and wasn't sure if I'd enjoy a book with only one human as a [...]

    18. A cranky female space freighter captain unintentionally gets involved with interplanetary drug dealers and slave traders. It's not an overly original story, but it's entertaining enough for a light read. It's mostly a space opera with a fair amount of chaste romance, some fantasy, and a bit too much introspective angst (for my taste). I found some of the prose.ard at times. The protagonist is not entirely likeable or believable. She seems slow on the uptake, and her reactions often do not seem t [...]

    19. Oh, heh-heh, fluffy space opera. I love fluffy space opera! Dealing with pirates, everyone's broke, awkard situations— well that's some buried trauma we just dealt with. And that's some more trauma. OH WOW that's a lot of trauma. BLOOD. SO MUCH BLOOD AND TRAUMA. WHY IS EVERYTHING TERRIBLE. RUN. RUN. START THE SHIP WE NEED TO RUN.

    20. You really have to look a gift horse in the mouth. Reese Eddings took a loan that is now putting her ship the Earthrise, her crew and herself in danger. I loved the characters in Earthrise. Reese Eddings is at the center the story. She has a lot of internal problems that play out throughout the story. Her mixed race crew is full of interesting people. I loved the pelted ones. They added a lot of humor.In spite of the danger at the heart of the story this is a slow moving story. Hogarth takes the [...]

    21. Book one of a great seriesWith a crew of alien species, human Captain Reese is flying her battered merchant ship through space attempting to make a profit trading. Unexpectedly she is called to pay off a debt by picking up a Eldrich man being held prisoner for sale to slavers. This begins a series of adventures filled with danger, including those of emotional attachment. The characters are all well developed with both lovable quirks and weaknesses, and you will soon be strongly invested in their [...]

    22. Actual Rating: 3.5 for the plot and world; 2.0 for the characters"he felt as if he was embracing an armful of naked swords."Best line to describe Reese, our main character and Captain of the Earthrise merchant vessel. This has to be one of the most emotionally inept characters I have ever read. Childish temper tantrums are not just tantrums, but how shespeaks to her crew!!! Throughout the entire novel I was telling her to grow the f up. My niece was more polite and socially intelligent during he [...]

    23. I didn’t expect to be marking a “best read of the year” in January, but Earthrise earned it from me. I went into it not knowing much except the description and that it was a space opera, one of my favorite genres. Earthrise definitely delivers in the adventure department, with space pirates, chase scenes, and shootouts, but what really made the story stand out for me was the depth of the characters and their relationships. Everyone in this book felt real, and while their external problems [...]

    24. Ok…WOWNow I’ve seen this book come up on my recommendation list all the time, but I always ignore it because.I’m not into reading science fiction, I like watching science fiction movies and TV shows but I do not like to read em. Not that I don’t ever read them….just not my first choice.But somehow I had a change of heart and I though “ehwhat the heck” and decided to just give it a try and see if I liked it…aaaand……I LIKE IT !!! HAHAHA (this may be a long review)*****SPOILERS [...]

    25. A fascinating, new (to me) multi-species universe and castThis is my second book by M.C.A. Hogarth, and it's nice to know that I would have found her from ' Alien Diplomacy & Interspecies Friendship list even if I hadn't already read "Thief of Songs". While this Pelted universe (populated with various races, including humanoids engineered with the addition of various animal species' DNA) space opera adventure — which features a struggling merchant crew evading and/or fighting slavers and p [...]

    26. I've been waiting to read this book for a long time, so it was great to finally get my hands on a copy through Kindle! I was drawn to it partly because of the beautiful cover art and partly because it features a female not-white captain as protagonist - what's not to love?So I dove into the story of Captain Reese Eddings and her merchant crew of aliens who get into more trouble than they deserve and I had a lot of fun. So much fun that I bought the two sequels when only 80% done with the story.I [...]

    27. I registered a book at BookCrossing!BookCrossing/journal/13667220I had a nice experience with this book. Comfy Space Opera.Captain Reese Eddings is a bit of a romance reader and her character is a typical romance heroine in many ways. The attraction to the mysterious albino space "elf" is instant and she habitually throws up roadblocks to the attraction. It's over the top the amount of denial she's in and her crew drags her along the path of most resistance for her own good (as well as the plot' [...]

    28. I enjoyed this by the most part, it seems to be a start of a very interesting series. The only part I didn't enjoy too much was when it came to Sascha and Irine, a sort of cat people, they have tails, fur and ear like a large cat, they walk up right and are intelligent. Those two are bother and sister, twins, they are also lovers, they have an incestual relationship. The argument might be made that they are cats, aliens with a different culture, well, that's all well and good but I have no inter [...]

    29. This book will catch the attention of nearly anyone who enjoys a good space saga centred around a ship and it's crew. Especially when faced with challenges that put the characters out of their comfort-zone and require growth. If you enjoyed things like Firefly or Andromeda then I think you will really enjoy this one!The third person narration was smoothly done and elaborated details nicely. It didn't try to shovel tons of it at you all at once, or give you no clues at all. The steady, but manage [...]
