Cordelia Naismith, Betan Survey Captain, was expecting the unexpected: hexapods, floating creatures, odd parasites… She was not, however, expecting to find hostile humans on an uninhabited planet. And she wasn’t really expecting to fall in love with a 40-plus barbarian known to cosmopolitan galactics as the Butcher of Komarr.

I like that this description is short and sweet. You get an idea of where the plot is going to go, a strong sense of action. It’s straight and to the point. I feel like even though we only have a few sentences to work with, we still have a pretty good idea of what the main character’s voice will be like and what kind of plot we’re looking at.We also have a sense of a baseline for normalcy (or lack thereof). I’m fairly impressed with the ability for just a few sentences to pack in so much, and I applaud the description.
Since there’s not really much content to praise (or pick at) with this one, I’m going to make my review short and sweet as well.
