Potato Surprise: A Brimstone PrequelPotato Surprise: A Brimstone Prequel by Angel Martinez

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a lot of fun and definitely made me want to look up the rest of the series. The snark is strong in this one. Shax, a demon prince, and his companion, Vernin have stolen a ship and managed to end up on the far side of the galaxy with no real idea how to get home, provided they had a home to get back to. Armed with their wits and the ship's drag queen AI, they try to make their way by taking on cargo and flirting with outright piracy. Their first cargo is neat, jewel-like creatures that Shax takes a liking to.

However, their cargo in politically loaded and several groups are happy to kill them and take the cargo for themselves. Shax and Vernin have to avoid both criminals and galactic cops and try to figure out what to do with the cargo, not to mention how to keep themselves alive.

There's a great bunch of action, none of which that overstays the point of interest and the sex scenes are relatively short and hot, adding to the story rather than bogging it down. There's a nice helping of humor too. I'm looking forward to more.
