I never thought I'd have a bounty on my head the size of the Milky Way.Of course, I never thought I'd be able to bend time, either.But hey, life is full of surprises.Don't get me wrong, feeling like a goddess has its perks, but those perks come with a hefty price. My brain is tapioca. I'm stranded in the middle of dead space. Ratters are using me for target practice, and a giant, cybernetic monster named Oscar is trying to make me his chew toy.All this because I played superhero (or thief, according to some) and snatched a doomsday device from an intergalactic mobster.So if I don't make it out of here alive, remember this: Above all else, I want a Viking funeral.… (more)

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
A sci-fi adventure in the future, reminding me of "Indiana Jones and ...". I found it interesting, but toward the end, I lost track of where Dakota and Tolby were in time, and pretty much just kept reading to finish. And it just ended. But there is a second book, which I suppose continues the adventure. As others have commented, probably aimed at YA audience, but I'm 70 and I enjoyed it. A light, easy sci-fi read. ( )

Apocalypse How? is a frenetic novel of humorous quips and a mixture of modernisms and science fiction tropes. The main characters, Dakota and Tolby, are snarky treasure hunters possibly in over their heads as they try to get to a treasure that will make them indescribably wealthy. There are, of course, murderous villains, a number of explosions, and other assorted high action science fiction tropes.

The book is funny, but only so much. And while I enjoyed it okay, there are a lot of conveniences involved in the plot. And the end plainly sets up for a sequel. But it has an unavailingly frenetic pace, which, at times, makes it a lot of work to read. Still, if you want something funny and "far future" science fiction, you might enjoy this. ( )

This was a fun, fast-paced adventure novel. I really liked the two main characters and the dynamic between them, and I enjoyed their shenanigans. I will say the pacing felt a bit off to me, some things felt very rushed, and there were a few sections that I felt didn't add anything to the book and should have been cut. Overall, I enjoyed it, and I would recommend to people looking for a fun adventure book, especially if they are fans of Indiana Jones. ( )

The novel starts off running and never really stops. There is no luxury for breath which in part can be attributed to the enormously long run-on-sentences that are injected every so often. Bear in mind that this is an ERC, so there hopefully will be changes before its final iteration. I wanted to like this novel, but execution just seems to fall flat - the whole experience feels like a dream, a tryhard dream with a lot of attempts at sarcastic witticisms.

The novel is not bad per se, it's just not my cup of tea despite all these cool elements - space travel, anthropomorphic animals, giant bald angels, cute robots who lure you in with ice-cream and cake. I feel that it would find a warmer reception with a YA audience. ( )

This book is a real romp. If you try not to think too hard about the way things fall into place then it's quite a non-stop rollercoaster ride. Dakota spends pretty much the whole time escaping danger. There are several contemporary SF references (which I love), one of which is key to helping things keep moving. It also references Indiana Jones, who seems to be the inspiration for this story. It feels like it's aimed at a YA audience. ( )
