Kept me reading past my bedtime to finish in one sitting.
Great premise, interesting characters that could be better developed, ending on such a major cliffhanger could be a minus to some readers. All in all, I will gladly and happily buy book 2 when it comes out. Well done and thanks for the trip in your universe.

A well-rounded, entertaining piece of science-fiction that leaves you eager to read the sequel
I enjoyed Starship Doi thoroughly. The subject is fresh and intriguing, the characters are well shaped and believable, and the dialogue is surprisingly realistic. I also imagine that the interaction between characters that come from very different worlds is not an easy challenge for a writer, which is one of the reasons I found this book to be so well written - there was no shortage of filling in the gaps between the characters' discrepant backgrounds.
Then, of course, the book is also rich in delightful humor that had me laugh out loud on many occasions.

A wonderful sci-fi novel that had me right away and kept my interest.
Great plot, surprises, and loved the ship! Great characters too! Loved them. Great job.

Great book. Good writing. Interesting story.
This is the beginning book in a series that is off to a good start, The plot is different from any other that I have read, and the author adds enough suspense so that book is hard to put down. I recommend this book.

A fun read. A little sleep deprived now!
Unique premise. Intriguing. Some great humour. It's quite unfair when authors write such a compelling story and I don't have the next one lined up to read. Or worse still, if they haven't yet written it.
Good length too.
I thoroughly enjoyed this yarn. The very different characters, well described, finding themselves in such a bizarre time and place make this a page turner. Only problem is I've now run out of pages. Hate it when that happens!
Not sure what this is tagged as. It's science fiction but not really space opera. There's time travel, sort of. We have aliens, as yet unsighted. And a pretty nifty spaceship - glad I'm not on it, I don't think it has a clue how to make coffee or chocolate, two of my necessities.
I have to get the sequel, even if it's just to make sure poor Aram gets to eat some corn. Hmm, wondered why I kept smelling barbecued corn cobs. Happily, my favourite author list is growing by the week and Mr Deva just added himself to that list.
Highly recommend.
It's worth reading just to see what the rather crazy third century Dacian uses to fend off an attacking force!
