Review: Cyborg Legacy

Cyborg Legacy by Lindsay Buroker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I got this book as part of a bundle – I wouldn’t have otherwise bought book #8.6 out of a series I’ve never read. But the description said it worked as a standalone story. In the intro to the book, the author confirms this. So I jumped in.

This book did not disappoint. It was an incredibly fast read – I think my ereader (Kobo) marked it as 155 pages. But Buroker does a good job of quickly setting up the world and our characters before jumping into the main plot. I don’t know if the main series is like this, but the narrative is a lot more fun than you’d think based on the cover (I know, I know…. don’t just a book by its cover) or the description. There are heavy topics discussed and there’s death and violence. But there’s also a sweet married relationship that involves flirting and innuendoes. There are pilots who make wry comments. The main characters don’t take themselves too seriously except when it makes sense to the plot.

All in all, this was a surprisingly good book that I got in a virtual grab bag. I’ll be going back to read the original series and, if it has the same tone as this book, I think I’ll be having a lot of fun. I heartily recommend and you definitely don’t have to have read the first 8 to get it.
