    1. [July 5, 2017]FREE TODAY!!! Get it, get it, get it!!![June 2015] ► Initial rating: 5 stars► Second rating: 8 starsThink you're going to get another review from me? Think again. Just raise my original review to the third power and you'll get an idea of how I feel about this story.[April 2015]Don'tLetMeGoBOOM. Pippa DaCosta's done it again.Houston, we have a problem. The Pippa DaCosta Problem. Whenever I have to review one of her books my grey cells malfunction. They're so cool-fantastic-aweso [...]

    2. "She's only just begun."Good. God. Good. God.It was love at first sight. Un colpo di fulmine. Un flechazo (see, Fran? Spanish!). And if I knew how to say this in other languages too, I would. Wait, I can also tell you something similar in my local dialect: Mi fici perdiri a testa.My knowledge really ends here though.And now, onto the completely useless and disconnected sort-of-comment review!•The characters. I don't really know why I am even trying to write something logical here because evey [...]

    3. I wasn't too sure about this until about the halfway point, then it really got interesting. And, all of the things revealed towards the end? Blew my mind. So very good.Robots have feelings too.

    4. 19 November 2015: $0.99 on Kindle!!I feel awkward reviewing this because it's not an entire story. It's the beginning of the story. It does have a nice arc - for which I'm thankful - but it's so clearly just the start that I almost want to wait until I've read the next 2 books (which should finish it out, I hope) before I review and grade it. The ending can make a huge difference in how I feel about the earlier sections. However, this part of the story still made a really big impression on me an [...]

    5. I JUST FINISHED THIS AND IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT. Thank you book for being made of KICK-ASS and AWESOME. <3 I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE SEQUEL I NEED IT NOWReview to come.-----------------------------------------------------------------------OMG SEX, DRUGS AND VIOLENCE I WANT THEM ALL GIVE 'EM TO ME!!! PLEASE BE AWESOME BOOK I BEG OF YOU.

    6. 4.25 “Nice? Nice is nothing. Nice is bland. Nice is the morning after when you can’t remember her name.” StarsI flew through this. Pippa DaCosta is becoming a favorite author of mine even if she doesn’t seem to believe in the conventional happily ever after and most of her characters are a bit broken but never Mary or Stu Sue.Caleb is the smuggler pilot down on his luck who might fix a problem you’re having for the right price. Fran is his co-pilot sidekick who loves to tease him and n [...]

    7. 4.5 screaming stars!Well thenjumping right in.There are no good guys here, no good galshell, most of the people in this little tale run the gamut between morally ambigious to morally repugnant. Except oned she's not human. Or is she?Caleb is the down-and-out captain of a starship. He has a 2nd in command he'd dearly love to get on her back and a past he's buried under the rubble of the soul he never had. When he finds a synth stow-a-way his first thought is what a pain in the ass. His 2nd is how [...]

    8. This novella had an interesting premise. Very rich people pay to be "injected" into synthetic bodies after death. They are sort of like advanced robots with real blood running in their veins, along with memories of their past lives. This story is about synthetic #1001, who goes against her "programming" and gets caught up with someone she knew from her past life.Caleb is the captain of the ship she ends up on and Fran is his pilot and second-in-command. There was a lot of fun sci-fi action, but [...]

    9. I finished Pippa DaCosta's Beyond The Veil, but it was a struggle. I decided to give her another chance, but this was similar. The beginning was entertaining and not badly written, I liked the plot idea and the characters. But somewhere around the midway point my interest ran out and I spent a whole week reading fanfiction instead. I had to force myself to pick this up again and finish it.I am not quite sure what my problem was. I went into this with very low expectations anyhow and was pleasant [...]

    10. Fan-freakin-tastic. The only reason I took off one star is because this feels like a serial to me and I HATE SERIALS. Just release all the parts as one damn book and charge me a little more. I love characters like this. Where there is plenty to love AND hate about them. Morally ambiguous is REAL LIFE SHIT. I love it. I LOVE IT! Now I'm off to buy part two and then I'll have to wait for part three which pisses me right off.

    11. i love the new covers so much more lol---Actual rating: 3.5Y'know, the concept of futuristic societies in space isn't all the original. Neither are robots. So I didn't really expect anything from this book. But, I've only read so many science fiction novels in my young lifetime, so what can I really say about originality?This book, it's hard to explain for me. Basically, you have two main characters in play: a synth, #1001, and a smuggler, Caleb. Synths are their world's robots. Made by Chitec, [...]

    12. This should not be a romance.I think the title Betrayal is very fitting.The so called hero is a coward and a murderer by association who did it to get ahead in life. I am glad he was duped by the actual murderer. Left alone to rot.(view spoiler)[So basically, the hero was a rising fleet star who started dating the daughter of the CEO (the heroine) of a tech company that supplied fleet. This tech company has a lot of power over the fleet. So basically when the hero and heroine stumble upon eviden [...]

    13. A gritty, realistic sci-fi brought to you by the great Pippa DaCosta! After reading this I kind of want to see her try her hand at historical romance. Just so I can see if she can do anything wrong. The main idea behind the synthetics is not something original but as usual Ms. DaCosta takes the cliche and demolishes all preconceptions. I saw most of the twists before they happened but I'm chalking that up to my familiarity with some of her other works. I'm pretty sure it was a fluke however and [...]

    14. Pippa DaCosta's Girl From Above: Betrayal isn't a romance, but it is a love story. The aptly descriptive blurb calls this book an "action-packed story of love, redemption and revenge." At first the reader is lulled into believing adorable scoundrel Capt. Caleb Shepperd is a horn-dog version of Han Solo or Firefly's Mal Reynolds. DaCosta made him think things like, "Her black tank top left little to the imagination, which was fortuitous, given that I didn't have one." He was crass enough that I b [...]

    15. I'll start off by saying I'm not a huge fan of Scifi stuff but this was pretty neat. I enjoyed the fact that this story seemed different from other scifi books I've read. The connection between robot and human in this book seems to be shaky because robots have a different role in the future. This story follows the beginning of life for #1001, or at least her beginnings of freedom. #1001 isn't like the others, she's able to feel, make decisions and process what's going on around her. She no longe [...]

    16. "The storm still raged. And nothing had changed, except there was one less man in the world. " This book is made of awesome. Really, I was a little skeptic at the beginning but after a few chapters in I knew this was going to be good. So naturally, I became alert- I was waiting for the book to screw up, and I knew excatly how it would happen. You see, #1001 is a synthetich human being- she follows orders. Which is why I was sure I would not grow to like her, also, I was sure I would not grow to [...]

    17. “I used to believe stars were wishes, that if we reached for them, our dreams would come true. But the stars will always be out of reach, and no amount of dreaming will capture them. I wish… I wish we had more time. I wish we had forever. I wish you loved me.” Want sci-fi with some real zing? Then Pippa’s newest offering; Girl From Above (The 1000 Revolution) just might be the book for you. This novel(la) ticks all the right boxes for a great space opera. This is a story of love gone wro [...]

    18. A-MAZ-ING!! 5 Stars! I absolutely loved this book. It's as if Firefly and Ex_Machina had a baby named Girl From Above! My inner geek-girl was bouncing up and down in delight.DaCosta has moved in a totally new direction with this series - not only with genre, but with style and tone as well. This book is darker, grittier, and more adult than her previous work to date. The plot and pace were swift; just as one secret is revealed another appears, keeping the dramatic tension constant throughout. He [...]

    19. 19/04 Free on . I used to believe stars were wishes, that if we reached them, our dreams would come true. But the stars will always be out of reach, and no amount of dreaming will capture them.Captain Caleb Shepperd, ex-fleet star in rising, is smuggler, occasionally a fixer and constant jackass. For five years now he’s been smuggling all kinds of illegal cargo through the nine systems, earning a living and staying mostly under the radar. When he finds unwanted passenger on his ship it seems h [...]

    20. "My name is #1001, and I am not ready to die. I’d only just begun to live."So this book? It was really good. I can't say I have read many books in this genre in my life (though lately I've been getting more into it) but this has got to be in my top three of best sci-fi books. Girl From Above: Betrayal follows Caleb, a captain who has been released from prison who's trying to keep a low profile and #1001, a synth, who is not meant to excist, as there are only supposed to be 1000 synthetic human [...]

    21. Holy crap, what did I just read? I was told this was just a silly little space romp with hot sex bots and Firefly snark. Whoever told me that is a liar because this has action, drama, intrigue, and characters I want to throttle to almost-death and then hug to pieces. Some bits of worldbuilding and character motivation were a smidge vague at the edges, but such irritants were easy to gloss over, thanks to fast pacing and epic conflict. I can't wait to be back in black with book two!I received a f [...]

    22. I read "I was created to kill" and it was an instant add. The possibility of murder, mayhem, and death is always a to-read, especially from killer females.

    23. Clean that TBR already!Shelved in October 2016 (which doesn't show anymore because of the change of edition)~Rating : 4 stars Wow. This book is an explosive cocktail of complicated and fucked up characters.

    24. There are only 1000 synths in existence, these highly advanced synthetic humans can be purchased the super rich so that their memories and consciousness can be transferred to the synth when they die. But if only 1000 of them were created who is #1001, where did she come from and why is she so different to the others? #1001 wants to live, she's managed to escape captivity and she has a plan but is it a coincidence that it's Caleb's ship that she ends up on? Caleb makes a living smuggling cargo bu [...]

    25. Oh Hell No. You know when you're watching the beginning of a movie on the SciFy channel, and the obligatory warning comes up: "This program contains, Sexual References, Nudity, Drug Use, Adult Themes, Coarse Language, Violence, Sex Scenesyada, yada, yada" and you're thinking, "ALRIGHT! My kind of movie." (Well maybe it isn't your kind of movie, but you get my drift, right?) Then you start watching the movie and it's one of those crappy B Grade shows made for TV, and even though it's pretty crapp [...]

    26. Pippa DaCosta is back with a new S/F novel! The changes in her writing style is definitely noticeable and this completely a different feel from her first series, The Veil. This is grittier, more complex and unique. If you like fluff and romance with your S/F, you will not find it here. Caleb intended to live a low profile life after his stint in prison, coursing through the galaxy and selling smuggled weapons but when a synth falls on his lap, his plan changes everything. #1001 is not supposed t [...]

    27. I've always kinda been a sucker for anti-hero characters, but the characters in this story almost go beyond that. They're not the good guys; it just so happens that the antagonists are worse, a different level of bad. That setup always intrigues me, because more often than not, it seems more realistic - given the setting - than it would if the characters were genuine heroes. Caleb and Fran (and even 1001, I suppose) are miserable, troubled people who are just fighting for survival. I'll be inter [...]
