    I would say that this short story is exactly what I imagine a space opera to be except for the fact I don't know exactly what a space opera is I looked it up though (aren't I a great book reviewer?) and it is: any melodramatic literature, motion picture, or television program set in outer space Etymology: based on soap opera. I thoroughly enjoyed the read. The writer's concept of the world, the characters that make up the story and the awesomely-described gadgets will leave readers satisfied. Le [...]

    I didn't know what to expect in a space opera, but I honestly enjoyed this tale. Leda was a strong, brave warrior, the last defense of her world against the evil fuel sucking leeches. I'm totally lost in this world, was able to visualize it, making me ponder what is truly out there in the vast arena of space. I recommend this book to anyone.

    This is a short space opera. It can be read during lunch or when you just want a quick break from reality. Worth taking the time to read this unique and different story.

    Semper Audacia, by M. Pax, is a “space-opera” novelette of roughly 13,000 words. I received a copy for free from the author for the review – and then I went out and bought it. No really, it was that good. (The review is also posted on my author blog at mariaviolante.)Let me start out this review by saying that I’m generally not a fan of shorter fiction. If it’s under twenty-thousand words, most authors barely find time to squeeze in some exposition and introduce the main hook. As such, [...]

    M. Pax knows how to grab you from the start. Semper Audacia begins with Leda as the last soldier defending her home planet from a powerful enemy. After 10 years without an enemy sighting, an enemy ship arrives and transmits the correct codes. Now Leda doesn’t know whether to shoot them down or not. She sets off to find out the truth. We’re primed from the start to keep reading because we want to see this underdog succeed against a force infinitely more powerful.I did have a couple problems w [...]

    Semper Audacia is the story of a warrior; the last of her kind, defending her home world via an orbital outpost. The planets population too has dwindled and is just hanging on. Their ancient foe attacks and the last guardian springs into action accompanied by a battalion of ghosts; the memories of her fallen comrades.The odds are almost hopeless. Almost. She must try; it’s what she does, it’s what she is and has been all her life. But then a wrinkle – the enemy battleship transmits a valid [...]

    Well, my personal conviction that I don't review indie books seems to be going out the window. I'll at least try to keep this short. So, in the interest of brevity - When the last warrior on the losing side of an interstellar war is confronted with the possibility of surrender, she is forced to decide it peace is worth the cost.I so loved this novelette. This just screams "professional" at every turn. The ebook design, the formatting, the layout, the editing are all as good, or better than most [...]

    For a science-fiction novella, this story is well-deserved of five stars. M.Pax convincingly creates a strange world and infuses it with mechanics that seem so real to the person living in it that it can be no less real for us. Of particular interest to me was the second skin or armor that Leda wore. It not only had intelligence but was responsible for her extreme longevity. The only thing that I don't like about the story are the things that are NOT addressed. For example, there is a huge histo [...]

    A space-opera you can read in a weekend. Generally I'm a full-blown novel fan and the shorter stuff isn't really for me, but M. Pax, with her 13,000 words, changed my mind. I downloaded it when I wasn't feeling well and by the next day, felt good enough to decide I needed to be reading something. This was it.Though her main character spends a lot of time in isolation M. Pax does a great job of invoking all five senses in the reader, of drawing you into the world of this lone solider who's main c [...]

    Such an emotionally-rich story—and beautifully told. Despair, isolation, grief, courage, pride, responsibility, strength, and triumph. All of these are what the reader will feel right along with Leda, and the transition between them is smooth and logical, which I find to be a remarkable feat within the span of a novella. The visuals are also fantastic. Two elements that I know will stick with me for a long, long time are Leda’s amazing uniform and, well, I’ll just call it “the goo.” I [...]

    The title is awesome and sets the scene perfectly. SEMPER AUDACIA is a fascinating novella! MPax has built a dynamic world within the pages of an equally dynamic Science Fiction story that begs for sequels. I loved Leda a most interesting, alone through much of the story, she is an incredibly well devoloped character. However, I must return to the detail, MPax had me awe struck by the meticulous story she was able to create in the confines of a short story. The ghost brigades, and the space outp [...]

    A space opera novelette. This was more like it! Though this wasn't a full size novel or series, I felt satisfied. The depth of character, world-building, plot, action, adventure, all left me feeling like I'd been to outer-space, meet new beings, experienced friendships, saved and lost lives. In fact, this little book crammed more in than many long series I've read.All that said, I found myself lost trying to figure out if this were memory or the present. In the end, it all sorts itself out. Mayb [...]

    I love the concepts woven into this dark science fiction story, including fabulous technology that had me engaged from beginning to end. M. Pax also has a wonderful skill of description that makes the prose rich with imagery. It carried me away to the loneliness of space and the struggles of duty and battle. Without giving anything away, it had a bucket load of conflict and emotion, a twist in the middle, and left me feeling satisfied. This was a great read. I'd recommend this story to all lover [...]

    M. Pax knows how to create atmosphere and give you a sense of place. During most of the book, there is only the main character, and Pax describes what Leda is is experiencing perfectly. You are so aware, it's as if you've become Leda. Excellent book!

    This short story was a disappointment only because I wanted to read more! I love M. Pax's writing. She is very detailed oriented and puts strong images into your imagination. Brava for this Space Opera!
