Slave Trade (Judge, Jury & Excecutioner, #5).
By Craig Martelle.
My rating ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
No respect for life. Or the law.
It’s the trade. In sentience. Run by the Corranites, creatures that have always traded in intelligent alien life.
Bought and sold. Nothing more than property.
Rivka is having none of it. With an eye toward taking the entire supply line down, she launches into the greater galaxy. All the way to the heart of the Federation.
It’s bigger than anyone knows. She calls all her friends and finds that she has woefully few. With a snarl and a mandate, she dives head first into the firepit of the Slave Trade.
Magistrate Rivka Anoa is the legal eagle you want on your side. No better friend. No worse enemy.
It is a while since I read a book in this series. I had almost forgotten about it. I remember that I thought the books were okayish but not something I would binge on.
This one is pretty much the same. Decent read but nothing fantastic. Rivka is a likable main protagonist and she is surrounded by quite a few likable characters. I like that Rivka has become quite a kick-ass character and she is nicely backed up by her companions, especially Red. I do wish her nanite fuelled powers would be a bit more interesting than this half assed mind reading though.
The story is, well, like the book overall, it is okay but not fantastic. There is plenty of action, some investigation and the usual, often foul mouthed, banter.
I’m not sure I can say much more about this book. This is one of these books that I though was okay to read but in reality is rather forgettable.
