Warship (Black Fleet Trilogy, Book 1) by Joshua Dalzelle (Book 2015

After reading the first few chapters, I didn't think I would like the book. The main Captain seemed to be an ass and the the rest of the ship and crew seemed quite stale. This didn't change all that much throughout the book, but the story moved along pretty fast so that convinced me to keep on reading.

The plot was very reminiscent of the Ark Royal series, which made you wonder... Towards the end of the book though, it splits off and actually becomes its own story but still. If you want to compare the two, the Ark Royal series was better.

Although the writing was pretty good, I just didn't like any of the characters. They all seemed forgettable and the Captain continued to be a dry cut-out. I'll put this series in the basket just in case I run out of books to read, but it certainly isn't a series that I'll be too eager to continue on with.
