I wish that I had read the earlier books written about Eric Olafson and his adventures around space I only got a glimpse into past books and the relationships that are in Eric Olafson Captain Black Velvet I am that type of reader that needs to know everything going on in the book If that means reading every book up until the one I am reviewing, I will do it So, I do feel that I missed out a bit when reading Eric Olafson Captain Black Velvet.I enjoyed reading Eric Olafson Captain Black Vel I wish that I had read the earlier books written about Eric Olafson and his adventures around space I only got a glimpse into past books and the relationships that are in Eric Olafson Captain Black Velvet I am that type of reader that needs to know everything going on in the book If that means reading every book up until the one I am reviewing, I will do it So, I do feel that I missed out a bit when reading Eric Olafson Captain Black Velvet.I enjoyed reading Eric Olafson Captain Black Velvet This had to be the most epic space opera that I have ever read and it is a long book, 542 pages But you forget how long the book is once you start reading The author did such a great job with world and character building I could picture them standing right next to me I enjoyed that the author took the time to round out even the most trivial character It made the book for me.Erica I liked..a lot She was the most feminine thing that I have read to date But she also retained some of her male attitude and outlook Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that she is male to female transgender Yup Erica, having been accepted as a transgender woman by her crew, also made the book for me It also helped that she was pretty badass I mean, she took on other alien lifeforms in the Death Fight Arena and in the process, saved a Nul Prince.While she ran a tight crew, Erica also had a soft spot for being in trouble That is how she ended up with two Togar, tiger like beings with a taste for human flesh, and other beings They became part of her crew That made for a very eclectic and unusual crew that people talked about.The fact that she was deep undercover as a pirate addedoomph to the book Erica also got into her fair share of trouble and had men chasing her all over the universe The shenanigans that she got into and out of was fantastic and, of course, it was done as bloody as possible Again, something that I enjoyed.The end of the book was very action filled I liked that none of the plotlines were wrapped up That left it open for the next books, which I cannot wait to read While I am waiting, I am going to pick up the other Eric Olafson books.My Summary of Eric Olafson Captain Black Velvet Eric Olafson Captain Black Velvet was an absolute dream to read Staying true to the space opera science fiction genre, I was taken on a wild ride around the universe I was also introduced to memorable characters The book is a bit long but that did nothing to take away from the wonderful character and world building in the book This is definitely a book that I would read again I also plan on reading the earlier books so I can get a better grip on the characters.How many stars will I

adventure Eric is deep undercover in the 51st century disguise as a female pirate captain name Black Velvet The adventure takes place at a multi cultural mega civilization in Free space The entire crew are all in disguise Their mission is to hunt and capture pirates and criminals Black velvet is a beauty with a knockout body and long blonde hair She has a reputation that in stills fear in criminals, civilians and space pirates throughout the galaxies She is the commander of the USS Tigershark There is a lot of twists and it s full of action But I m a little unsure of her writing style and the story needs a littleexcitement I would still recommend this book if you enjoy a Sci Fi futuristic,space epic story that s a continuing adventure with lots of engaging action I myself would read another adventure just because I like Sci Fi stories I received this book to read and give a review This is the third book in the Eric Olafson series Unfortunately, I have not read the first two books of the series, so there is some background I am not up on In this book, Eric appears to have been transformed into a female and is now known as Erica Olafson Early in the book it is not clear

This is the third book in the Eric Olafson series Unfortunately, I have not read the first two books of the series, so there is some background I am not up on In this book, Eric appears to have been transformed into a female and is now known as Erica Olafson Early in the book it is not clear whether this was to facilitate his disguise as Captain Black Velvet, a notorious female pirate, for an undercover mission into an area of the galaxy designated as Freespace or whether it was apermanent change Freespace was created by a treaty among the four most influential groups of planets Freespace is a kind of no man s space where the laws of the larger civilizations are not active, so it is a haven for space pirates and other types of criminals Most of the activity of the book takes place in Freespace Captain Olafson and her crew are part of the navy of the United Stars of the Galaxy They are violating the treaty by operating in Freespace, which is why they have to disguise themselves as pirates.The writing is a bit stilted, and the book could have used athorough editing There are many apparently missing words and inconsistent tenses, and several inconsistent spellings, especially near the end But the story is fascinating The plot is dense with a lot of adventures throughout the area If you like a lot of action with your space travel, this is the book for you.The crew of the Tigershark Silver Streak is remarkably diverse Even the alien bar in Star Wars looks tame in comparison I especially liked the image of this diverse crew working smoothly at their various jobs, having been carefully trained and constantly training new members as they come aboard, to achieve the repeated victories they are able to pull off.I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of this book As with others, this was my first time reading a book by Olafson and I missed out on the other books that led up to this one I don t have the background that was developed in previous stories But despite that, I did fine that the story was one that was interesting, albeit long Very long A book that was 500 plus pages long I almost put it aside a few times due to the length It was beginning to feel like it would never end But I hung in there and kept reading And I am glad I did It was a As with others, this was my first time reading a book by Olafson and I missed out on the other books that led

plus pages long I almost put it aside a few times due to the length It was beginning to feel like it would never end But I hung in there and kept reading And I am glad I did It was a different story than I am used to reading, not being one to read space types of works Yet I did find myself wanting to know what would happen next and thinking about the technology of the story in comparison to what we have today which drove me back to the book to learn.I was a little distracted by the grammatical errors scattered throughout, as well as the misuse of mechanics mainly commas and periods There is some editing that needs to be done to clean up the grammar and punctuation to help keep the readability smoother And in the process, there can be a little work on the overall content to help simplify some of it and shorten the text a bit With a good editor, this could be a very good book It was the writing that kept me from giving it the full 5 stars Plot, characters, character development, conclusion all of that left me thinking it was a good story, but mechanics and grammar kept me from giving it.That said, it is definitely worth reading and one I can recommend for those looking for books in this genre Great promise I have a weakness and last week I indulged it One morning I looked at my mound of literary fiction, YA, Mystery, Suspense, and Thriller titles in my TBR pile and groaned Where is my sci fi It gets that way sometimes Usually I soldier on and find myself forgetting my blah as soon as I pick up a good story Occasionally I need something drastic like a fix of space opera to snap me out of it That was this time Captain Eric Olafson and his band of loyal and a strange mix it is sidekicks are I have a weakness and last week I indulged it One morning I looked

really straightforward with Olafson From cover to cover, the adventures keep rolling asof the surprisingly complicated natures of the characters are revealed From slave pens to fighting off a purple worm in love, and , and , and , this is a serious title that should not be undervalued It is a well written fun read I am not sorry I broke my list for it I feel refreshed and entertained Now back to

while I haven t read any of the earlier installments, I was able to follow along pretty well Eric a is a human from a Neo Viking planet who became a Union officer and has also finally realized his dream of having a female body Erica is now posing as the mysterious pirate Black Velvet in order to combat crime and slave trading outside of Union space.The story is something like multiple episodes of Star Trek, with a multi species crew nobly pursuing Union goals and converting others to Union values There are hand to hand fights, gladiator trials, and space battles, along with surreptitious meetings in dirty bars and everything else you could want or imagine from a space opera At first it reminded me of C.J Cherryh s Alliance Union novels, but it sepisodic than that this is an adventure novel that follows Olafson s ship from seedy port to seedy port as the crew liberates the oppressed and downtrodden Not what you might call a serious book, but there s plenty of action and plenty of feel good moments for readers who like the lighter kind of space novel.My thanks to the publisher for providing a review copy of this book All opinions are my own Eric Olafson has been assigned an important mission, rid Freespace, a buffer zone between the Big Four Allies and their minions, and those who want to remain independent, of pirates He s undercover as a female pirate known as Captain Black Velvet, which, when added to the danger he faces should his cover be blown, causes him some personal anxiety and problems with his self image.The main enemies he must vanquish are the Kermac, a

literally Little does he know, though, that his mission is not quite so simple He finds himself in the middle of a battle that spans the cosmos, and it will take all of his wiles to survive.Eric Olafson Captain Black Velvet by Vanessa Ravencroft continues the adventures of Eric Olafson, a freebooter and adventurer with a Viking heritage, and a Viking mentality An eclectic cast of characters of all species are melded together into a starship crew that makes Star Trek look like a commuter ride on the Washington, DC Metro system.I received an advanced review copy of this book, and

unimaginably powerful.Rarely do I give up on a book but this one just became laborious and frustrating.Still, I wish the author well and I hope she employs the services of an editor to take this series where it deserves to go.Not recommended {Free Epub} º Eric Olafson: Captain Black Velvet í Follow Eric Olafson s epic adventure through a multi cultural mega civilization as he goes deep
