Athena Hera Sinistra never wanted to go to space. Never wanted see the eerie glow of the Powerpods. Never wanted to visit Circum Terra. Never had any interest in finding out the truth about the DarkShips. You always get what you don't ask for. Which must have been why she woke up in the dark of shipnight, within the greater night of space in her father's space cruiser, knowing that there was a stranger in her room. In a short time, after taking out the strangerwho turned out to be one of her father's bodyguards up to no good, she was hurtling away from the ship in a lifeboat to get help. But what she got instead would be the adventure of a lifetime - if she managed to survive.

While not perfect, Dark Ship Thieves is a refreshing fun and original sci-fi with a charming female protagonist and great reader.
I absolutally loved it. Lots of excitement, action/adventure and I loved the ending - the story concluded well - though I could see where it was going ahead of time, there was still a surprise at the end that really made it moving (which I didn't see coming). I'm not going to say anymore on the end, so I don't spoil it. This book is for anyone who loves scifi's and adventure (and of course romance). It's something I would listen to again.
It was a good book, and enjoyed it. The main character had a lot of spice and was destructive in her thoughts, which I liked.
Exciting story Line and Kimberly Dakin Brought it to Life

Any friend who is looking for a just plain fun story will love this.
Athena. Her voyage of self-discovery that moves through the story is compelling.
Absolutely. It drove me nuts to have to pause the IPOD in order to go to work, but I had to go to work to buy more audiobooks
Dakin's reading is excellent. Just enough emotion carries through without trying to out-perform the story.
I barely finished this book despite some nice references to Henlein's work. I guess author wanted to re-make "Friday" but that did not go all too well. Nice ambiance, first half of the book goes OK, second half is very bland. All in all, I did not think it was time well spent.
Move along the plot and make it seem less like a female soap opera fantasy in space.
Her voice reminds me of every arrogant, swarmy socialite elitist I've ever met. Rubbed me the wrong way.
I didn't finish it.
I could not listen to this book, i managed to hang in there for 30mins but gave up due to the poor and almost inaudible narration. It's a shame because i've heard good things about this book. I can NOT recommend purchasing this audio book.
"Great Audio Book"
I had not heard of this author before but as a long term Robert A Heinlein fan the comparisons to him attracted me.
Not disappointed, a great audio book I would recommend to all who enjoy Robert Heinlein or John Ringo.
Would certainly buy more from this author if they become available.
