    Dark Deeds By Mike Brooks


    Upon reading Dark Deeds , it is very clear that Brooks has become very comfortable climbing inside each character s head The series has grown, and although the plot and setting of each novel has been well crafted and fun, what truly makes the Keiko series shine is the characters.And damn, do they shine brightly in Dark Deeds.Starting shortly after the end of Dark Sky , the Keiko crew find themselves on the wrong side of Orlov, the mob boss they failed to please on the previous novel He takes Tam [...]

    this is a 4.5 wish good reads would allow half stars If you read the other 2 books do yourself a favor and read it.The strong point of the Keiko books are the characters, this book explored of that and it pays off Tamara Rouke steals all scenes she s in, until now most of her decisions were based on the team itself or orders, but now you get to see how her mind works I hope the author does this in the future I didn t liked the end very much, but that s just because it felt too clean , but I e [...]

    Dark Deeds is the third book in the Keiko series, which has quickly become one of my favorite ongoing series ever I was immensely looking forward to this book and am currently feeling very polarizing, conflicting emotions The first half is an easy 5 star, but about 60% in, things take a major turn and the ending really threw me for a loop, and not in the good way If you have read my reviews of the previous 2 books, you know I said something similar about the first book Dark Run there too I loved [...]

    I m not sure how I feel about this book There were some things I didn t like but things I did Overall, the character pieces were excellent, I wasn t a huge fan of the ending, and the narrative still feels a bit unfinished The Good Firstly, the cast The crew, both new and old, each have their individual moments to shine Although Jenna s diminished role was rather disappointing to me, Jia and Kuai both get get some excellent character moments in this segment of the series Chief had some great mom [...]

    Another entertaining and somewhat tragic caper for the Keiko crew Crime boss Orlov captures Captain Drift and his partner Tamara Rourke to extract payment and revenge for their failed mission in the prior novel Rourke is held hostage and Drift has to raise a large sum to pay off Orlov in a tight time frame They find another corrupt plan and figure out how to earn some starter capital betting on Apirana s cage fighting skills Things go awry, of course, and the local syndicate brings down chaos an [...]

    This is the third in Brooks excellent Keiko series following the crew of the spaceship Keiko adventures that to describe you would have to use the words shenanigans capers and rogues In some ways the series resembles a popular tv scifi series but Brooks makes the crew distinct and unique its not often you find a maori fighter as a major character In this installement the characters and motivations of the crew are revealed with a focus on Tamara Rourke, as she finds herself having to take her fut [...]

    Brooks has stepped up his game from the really good first two books to deliver a complex and engaging plot that s hard to stop reading.The failure of the crew s job in Dark Skies has come back to bite them with Tamara Rourke held hostage until the rest of them achieve a huge pay off Tamara s in no mood to be rescued and goes about flipping the script meanwhile Drift launches a scheme that s as dangerous as it s desperate Along the way we get a lot of the Chang siblings difficult relationship an [...]

    As enjoyable as the first two I still like the crew, and the tale is definitely tragic The one bit of light is the sideline for Jenna and Apirana.I saw another reviewer mention this too, but I wanted to share my own feelings The story was good and made sense right up until the very end At that point Rourke did something I didn t fully understand, and it forced her to do something that seemed like it might have been completely unnecessary She d literally just had a conversation with a dude who to [...]

    I m torn I really don t know how I feel about this book First, and most importantly, the book is enjoyable to read It s a heist story, which this crew is tailor made for, and stakes felt real throughout.It didn t end how stories of this ilk should, which I also like The crew shift is what has me leaving with a bad taste in my mouth The twins always felt like secondary characters to me, and their prominence here felt telling I don t mind losing them, though It s Tamara s shifts that I struggle wi [...]

    I ve enjoyed this series and this latest book is no exception Mostly However, I m dropping my rating on Dark Deeds for one reason I found the use of these new gender neutral pronouns ze and zir to be terribly annoying First, I m of the opinion that they and them are perfectly acceptable pronouns for gender neutral needs, so it was irksome to start with Second, and importantly, because these new pronouns weren t in either of the first books, the use of it here seemed a totally forced and awkward [...]

    Spoilers I thought this was a 4 star book until the last chapter I really didn t like Rouke s actions First signing the contract before the time was up for Drift to get back with the money Then the cold blooded killing of 3 people.Didn t work for me.Still like the series and will keep buying them, but this story was a let down.While Brooks is not quite a GRRM in his willingness to change out characters, it was a surprise to lose Jia and Kuai More Jia than Kuai It would seem that Drift and Rouke [...]

    Just keeps getting better.This latest installment in the ongoing trials and tribulations of the Keiko and crew saga just keeps getting better and better I rarely give a 5 star rating but this deserves it IMHO Great character development and story telling here Never a dull moment wrapped around interesting storylines What can I say, I m loving the series I never go into the exact storylines so won t here Just to say that nothing is a what I thought it would be and that s part of the pleasure Love [...]

    The Dark part of the title is very true in this third book in the Keiko series Events just seem to go against the crew and as a result the action is non stop and the tension just keeps ramping up The story follows two tracks as the crew separates and it is touch and go as to how everything will end Another hard to put down book by Brooks.

    Jelena Milašinović
    This book was such a roller coaster It s fast paced, on point and sucks you in with brilliant characters and a great story so that you simply can t stop reading This series is quickly becoming one of my favourite SF adventures that I adore reading over and over again and recommending it to friends.

    These books only get 4 stars because I don t LOVE any of the characters They re all good, but they just don t draw you in to really empathize with them Also, though the story is well written the plot lines are pretty basic There s one job, it s hectic, but it gets done.

    I was up in the air with this one for the first half I wasn t getting drawn into it, and it just seemed off But, then things started happening, the characters started being real, and it turned into a great roller coaster of events.

    In his third novel about the crew of the Keiko, Mike Brooks comes into his own In Dark Deeds, he has brought a balancing act between the heist story of the first book and the action adventure of the second, and created a satisfying adventure that keeps going right up to the end.

    The series rolls on with another highly readable volume that combines the energy of the first two books with stakes that feel even higher Still fun still looking forward to the next one.

    Captain Ichabod Drift and his wily crew of rascals offer up some grand adventures in the current trilogy Go for it.

    I enjoyed the world this book is set in, and the characters of the book.

    More rock em sock em spaceways adventure a la Firefly Hope there will ne with, maybe, a little less angsting among the cast.

    Doug Murphy
    If you liked Firefly, you ll enjoy this third novel in a series about a freighter and her adventuresome crew

    defies expectations of the genre all around was pleasantly surprised A being over twice Jenna s age is still creepy though

    Brittany Zelkovich
    Well I m good and afraid for the crew of the Keiko This can t be the end, right There has to be There has to be better resolution for the Changs and for Rourke Right

    The stuff at the end surprised me a bit, but I don t feel like it ruins anything I do hope the author continues this series.

    Love this series would read Lots of fun.

    I was really looking forward to this book, as the momentum of the characters from the first two books was great, but i felt that this one fell short I didn t get sucked into the story quite as much, and I didn t feel like we learned anything new about the characters If you liked the first two books, you ll be ok with this one, but it wasn t quite up to the same level for me.
