Zenith By Sasha Alsberg

Most know Androma Racella as the Bloody Baroness a powerful mercenary whose reign of terror stretches across the Mirabel Galaxy To those aboard her glass starship Marauder however she's just Andi their friend and fearless leaderBut when a routine mission goes awry the Marauder's all girl crew is tested as they find themselves in. So I received an arc of this and I just I just can tIt s so stupid It s so badI was either cringing or laughing whilst reading this and only managed to get through 100 pages before I started skimmingThis is the flimsiest sci fi I ve encountered It s laughableSpoilers ahoyThe world building is SO LAME People are constantly described with kooky features red and white striped eyes webbed feeton someone who s evidently barefoot on a spaceship glowing eyes slitted nostrils horns covered in spikes and it s so stupid I assume they re all aliens But why are their other features human It s the laziest shit ever to just throw some random weird features on characters because you re in spaceOne of the main character has blue skin with scalesUh huh sureAnd the scales glowBut only when she s experiencing strong emotionAnd they can burn so hot they burn through fleshI was literally laughing my ass off when I read that It s so fucking stupidAnd it s caused by a genetic mutation that came from radiationAlso weren t Andi s eyes glowing in the first Zenith thing Did they remove that LMAOAnd what s with the planets being treated as countries Planets are HUGE are you fucking telling me several of these planets have ONE 1 leader Fuck off That s not how it worksTheir stupid names kept being tossed about with no explanation as wellSpeaking of stupid names if you re gonna throw strange words in your dialogue at least explain what it isWhat the fuck is Moon ChewNo seriously what is it And why can it kill you Andi grimaced as Lira pulled out a hunk of Moon Chew and popped it into her mouth That stuff can kill you you know I also find it absolutely hilarious that they completely removed their made up curse word fike from the book LMAOOOUghhhhhhSo The MarauderIt s a deadly and delicious spaceship made of glass But not just any glass no it s impenetrable glass with a fancy name And even though it s impenetrable it s got metal shields to slip on when being shot at Why Who knowsAnd yes it is actually referred to as deadly and delicious in this bookJfc if your ship is described as being impenetrableIsn t it impenetrableWhy does it need metal shields This is so stupidIt s super easy to just take over as well It takes what a chapter for whoever the fuck s after them to board the ship and just take it Again what are the fucking metal shields forAnd while we re at it why THE FUCK does this huge spaceship only have a crew of four people It takes WAY MORE than four people to run a spaceship Isn t that just common knowledge AND senseAnd perhaps the stupidest thing about this fucking book why are the escape pods disabled when the ship gets hit by an EMP The function of an escape pod is to use it to escape when the ship isn t working you fucking dipshitsAlso IDK if it s just me but a glass ship being hit by an EMP is just weird to me Shouldn t this supa speshul glass be able to block it What is the purpose of building a ship out of this glassHuhWhat was thatAesthetics Sarah J MaasOh OKThe Bloody Baroness aka Androma RacellaFirst of all WHOThe Bloody Baroness is the stupidest name I ve ever heardWhy baroness Is it from Harry Potter s bloody baron ghost dudeWhatever the reason it s ridiculous and you can t expect me to take her seriouslyEspecially because she s supposed to be this badass cold blooded killer yes Then why is she such a wuss Whenever we re in her POV she s just freaking out about everythingShe ANGSTS constantly and feels guilty about the people she s killedYet she kills them in a very brutal fashion and seems to enjoy itEven to the point of calling herself the Bloody Baroness Consistency who I don t know herAlso why does she have metal plates on her cheekbonesAND THEN THERE S THE BEST PART She is a space pirate Who fights people With katanas Electric Katanas She fights People Who Have Guns Guns With katanasShe also has white and purple hairEXCUSE MEWHITEANDPURPLEIS SHE AN INUYASHA VILLAINI MEAN COME ONThis is a character that has white and purple hair debatable glowing eyes fucking metal plated cheekbones and fights with electric katanas and angsts about murder whilst also enjoying it Again HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO TAKE THIS CHARACTER SERIOUSLYOH and also at the end she is made a general aka leader of AN ENTIRE FUCKING PLANET ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME SASHA LINDSAY STOPDextro Arezinsert laugh track hereWhen we re in his POV he mentions the moon he was left to die on at least once a pageHim and Andi used to be together Is he the love interest Who the fuck caresHe is as bland as stale breadHe s low budget space WolverineHe keeps winkingStopLiraLira is blue she has blue fingers and is very blue with blue scales Moon Chew Uhh pilotOh she s blue don t cha knowGilly aka a Murder ChildHer personality is that she s a redhead and she is ruthless and a crybabyShe s played a lot of competitive overwatch and has got her golden gunsNot allowed to say Bad Words but very much allowed to do Bad Things because logicBreckShe s a giantThat s itNor SolisOoooow the edge xXxPLOT TWIST SHE S THE UEEN OF THE UNIVERSE PAINT MY PALACE IN BLOOD SO EDGY WOWFuck offSome Forgettable Prince Guy That They Rescue aka Vengeance Will Be MinePLOT TWISTSo lameThe PlotWhere is it Did they lose it This book is so fucking boringThe writing Her stomach dropped to her toes B for BadIt s stupid It tries to be all epic and dramatic but really isn tI don t know which parts are written by which authors but it s all really underwhelming and stupidAlso badVery very bad Her nightmares were like bloodstains Edgy It then says because they re impossible to get rid of which is not true Do they not get periods Does vanish not exist jokes aside this is a really stupid analogyAlso the dialogue is weird We need that Soleran ice mare who tried to eat Andi s throat with her teeth a few months ago Gilly said This is such a weird fucking sentence I don t know if they tried to make her seem immature It s still really fucking Bad This time it was so bright and so loud that it lit up the skies You are in space There are no skies and there is no sound FUcking dipshit oh my god AND THIS KEEPS HAPPENING Androma always runs until she finds a place to hide Well yes We also have this gem She had always loved the stars Even as a child she d dreamed of dancing among them But tonight she felt as if they were watching her waiting for her to fail Mocking little bastards Well they d be sorely disappointed Is she delusional as well Why is this here Is it supposed to be ironic since she does fail in just a few pages It s ridiculousWhat is mocking about stars What is so different in this instance from any other She says she s always loved them BUT BUT WHAT WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS IS SO STUPID AAAAAAAJesus fucking christThis book never should ve been published and you know itIt reads like a wattpad story definitely not something to be actually sold in stores oh my fucking godNo matter how you look at this it s fucking shit either the internet sensation Sasha and her YT following got this picked up by a publisher or they genuinely thought this rushed garbage was actually worth publishingOne is likely than the other but still either way it s awfulThe majority of this book was written in six weeks according to the editor Lauren Smulski so that explains a lotListen I can t even spite read this shitYou know how there are books that are just so Bad that they become entertaining to readYeah this aint one of emThere s literally nothing here Which is surprising because I ve seen on both authors YT channels that they are both very passionate about this book Where is that passion Where did it goIt certainly does not shine through to the final productOh and btw I do not give a single shit if Lindsay and Sasha are good people because this book is still garbage You shouldn t rate a book higher just because the author is nice The fact that I even need to state this is sadTo sum it all up this book sucks and you should waste neither your time nor your money on itAlso there s going to be a seuel Hooray

Thanks NetGalley for the eARC All opinions are my ownTrigger Warnings murder PTSD bad rep griefEDIT 200118 I m not sure if I missed it but a rape subplot is in the final copy CLICK HERE TO GO OVER TO MY BLOG WHERE THIS REVIEW AND OTHERS ARE FEATUREDR A M B L EHere s the thing I knew Zenith wasn t going to be the book for me I knew it in my soul I had read the small snippet that was released last year I hated it At first I was shocked because it was pretty good on my first read through However the I sat on it the I hated it This 500 page copy of Zenith was somehow worse than those first 62 pages that were releasedI have never been so bored reading a book Nothing happens These characters are dull and our main character Androma Andi is so fucking boring I m going to talk about this later in this review but it is insane what an unmemorable character she wasIt felt like Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings tried too hard to turn Zenith into something it wasn t Filled with a ridiculous amount of POV chapters I feel the story was lost within side plots that did not add to the story in any way I also believe that the duo tried to create a story that would be similar to the YA favourite Six of Crows and Throne of Glass I found myself picking up on many similarities throughout the 500 page novel and wanting to roll my eyesNot even that but simply the overwhelming fact that the writing style was boring It was clear that one part of the novel had been heavily edited than the second half It was also incredibly clear that this book was written by two authors In my opinion the duo s writing styles didn t flow together and left this particular version of the book feeling clunky The flow was truly off with the pair focusing on scenes that added useless information to the story rather than the main plotIt wasn t even that actually The first part of the book the original 62 pages had been edited to have a sort of flowery style of writing It was confusing and unnecessary the amount of metaphors and similes that had been thrown into this book None of which really made sense However that style of writing basically completely stops out of nowhere and it becomes incredibly messy I know this is an eARC but I found several mistakes throughout and repeats of words and phrases I definitely couldn t stand the fact that you were told Andi s backstory every fifty or so pages It was frustrating because purely because this book could have been 300 pages shorter and still delivered the same plotI also uickly want to mention the girls inclusion of PTSD As someone who has PTSD I found their attempt at representing it through their main character laughable It wasn t good It was clunky and thrown in when it best suited them It didn t add to the character and it wasn t mentioned until convenient In no way did Andi come across as someone who was struggling with PTSD It actually incredibly frustrated me Sure there are many types of PTSD but in the case of this particular book it wasn t displayed accurately The girls would have been better to just drop that entire piece of the bookP L O TPlot is a funny word to use in regards to this book Mainly because for 490 pages nothing happens I truly wish I was kidding The excitement and climax of the book happens just seconds off you ending the book It felt sloppy it felt like it wasn t edited and boy did it feel rushed It felt as if the authors had a deadline to meet and where throwing every cliche on paper in order to get their book in It was frustrating to readThe primary plot of this is that the Bloody Baroness this nickname is a joke and I ll talk about it in my characters section has been recruited by a man who hates her to rescue his son with a man she tried to kill Really there are so many other YA stories where this is executed much better This particular mission is accomplished within 40% of the book The characters have retrieved him successfully For 50% we get to watch every other fuck around and have a ridiculous amount of POV chaptersI wish I was kidding about the POV chapters There were at least 6 POV chapters One takes place in the past three are people on the ship one is the evil ueen and one is the guy who is being rescued A ridiculous amount and many of which could have been taken out We really only needed the main character s perspective and this book could have been so much shorterC H A R A C T E R SThere are so many pointless fucking characters in Zenith I apologise for the language that is about to arise but I m getting mad just remembering this book There s the crew on the Marauder all women space pirates which sounds awesome but trust me I m not There s like a 12 year old murderer Lira and a giantess I have no idea honestly They were made clearly not important or relevant to have a backstory The only character who gets a POV chapter is Lira a perspective that really wasn t needed to add to the storyFor this section I only want to talk about Androma because I have a lot to say and this review is already longer than my usual There are characters like Dex who I liked better Nor who was an evil bitch that I wanted to murder everyone and Valen who was useless A N D R O M A R A C E L L ALets get into this Hello Androma Racella an attempt at both Celaena Sardothien and Kaz Brekker A terrible attempt It doesn t matter if you only like Throne of Glass or Six of Crows you will cringe at this clear attempt at trying to be like your favourite characters I truly have never read a unimpressive character in a fantasy novel I have never been bored in a fantasy novel either However Andi s perspective had to be some of the most boring everI want to start off with my first major hate for the scary and fearless main character The fact that she is not this big amazing character that we are meant to believe She is feared throughout the galaxies and the authors have described her as ruthless time and time again This is so incorrect With a title like the Bloody Baroness you don t expect a character to take time to mark each death on her blade and mourn the deaths under her blade It was truly pathetic honestly She thinks she s a monster but she continues to kill and enjoy it Her character was a contradiction that didn t make sense I ranted about this in my part one review of the novella It seems that it wasn t changed when they forced this book to hit 500 pages seriously Andi isn t interesting enough to be worth 100 pagesShe also treats everyone like shit From her crew who she is meant to love to her ex boyfriend Which was a romance that led to nothing Throughout the entire book you are seeing Andi and her ex Dex flirt and kind of grow their feelings as they learn what happened before the big betrayal It leads to nothing They ultimately go well we had our chance lmao nice knowing you and I m like are you fucking seriousThis book is a whole lot of nothing The characters are a whole lot of nothing The ultimate thing accomplished throughout this book isyou guessed it nothing 500 pages of shitty characters and nothing I m going insane even thinking about this book oh my God someone stop me from ripping my hair outO V E R A L LOverall this isn t a book you need to read on release day or week If you still want to read it I would recommend waiting for it to come down in price because it is not worth the hype It is truly a let down and I wasn t expecting anything at all I truly can t even put into words how much I recommend you don t waste your time with this book It s boring and nothing happens I mean look at the Goodreads rating on it It s damn lowI really just keep getting mad about this book This may sit under All The Bright Places and Caraval for most hated book by me ever I really tried to be nice throughout this review but the I typed the angrier I got that I spent 5 hours reading this load of shit when I could have done absolutely anything else in the world
