Availability: Ready to download

Ki is a petty thief. Her best friend wills her his solo-flyer—call it a space motorcycle: temperamental, fast as hell, and expensive to maintain. Any reasonable person would sell it to get off the street, but Ki isn’t reasonable. Margot is a military vet at loose ends. She blows her entire back pay on a solo-flyer, a decision she instantly regrets but can’t bring herself to Ki is a petty thief. Her best friend wills her his solo-flyer—call it a space motorcycle: temperamental, fast as hell, and expensive to maintain. Any reasonable person would sell it to get off the street, but Ki isn’t reasonable. Margot is a military vet at loose ends. She blows her entire back pay on a solo-flyer, a decision she instantly regrets but can’t bring herself to undo. Margot meets Ki and thinks she’s the sympathetic friend she needs when she feels most alone. Ki thinks Margot is an easy mark for food money. They’re both right, but lunch leads to a joy ride to planet Ratana, where Margot is arrested by border control. Ki enlists Ratanese local Zuleikah, a bored rich girl who can think of no stupider, and therefore better, way to spend her time than busting someone out of jail. Together they rescue Margot, but find themselves trapped on a hostile planet on the cusp of civil war. When Zuleikah convinces them that their best bet for escape is to kidnap—er, rescue—Prince Thane from his dreary role in the crumbling monarchy, it results in a chase across the desert and into the farthest reaches of the universe. If they can learn to trust each other, and if the repo men, cops, and three different galactic governments don’t catch them, the Galactic Hellcats might just use their solo-fliers to carve a place for themselves among the stars.

    I mean ... I've read this 80 times through and I love it each time, but I'm the audience the author had in mind writing it. :D ... I did this mostly as a joke but now I can't remove it? Oops.

    I love books in which, when I close the book, I can tell the characters continue on with their lives and adventures. I love books in which I want to hang out with the characters, laugh with them, and be friends with them. I love this book for those reasons and many more. The characters are fully drawn and three-dimensional and they made me laugh (especially Ki) and made me want to give them all hugs. Also, this book is kind. Everyone is messed up and in pain, but their kindness for each other, e I love books in which, when I close the book, I can tell the characters continue on with their lives and adventures.

Everyone is messed up and in pain, but their kindness for each other, even when they don't understand one another, really comes through. Vibbert does a fabulous job of taking care of her characters even when she's putting them in danger, if that makes sense (and I think it does). For fans of Murderbot and A Long Way to a Small Angry Planet. If you like your space opera and heists and characters saving each other, then this should be your next read. Also, dammit, I want a solo-flyer.

    A fast-paced, interstellar journey of three unlikely friends who have one thing in common... they enjoy life in the fast lane, crossing the galaxy in their space motorcycles. Though the three women are self proclaimed independent spirits, the find that they need each other and that, together, they can cause just as much good as trouble. If you like feisty females and futuristic space crime, you’re going to want to buckle up and read Galactic Hellcats!

    Galactic Hellcats is an action-packed thriller that will keep you turning pages late into the night. It’s a full-throttle adventure through space with a thief, a Navy vet, a noble woman and a prince. You’ll follow this hapless gang of solo flyers — think space motorcycles — through the process of learning to trust each other and learning to follow their hearts to what they truly want in life. Zuleikah — the wealthy noble woman — and Margot — the middle-class Navy vet — can’t understand why pennil Galactic Hellcats is an action-packed thriller that will keep you turning pages late into the night.

You’ll follow this hapless gang of solo flyers — think space motorcycles — through the process of learning to trust each other and learning to follow their hearts to what they truly want in life. Zuleikah — the wealthy noble woman — and Margot — the middle-class Navy vet — can’t understand why penniless Ki feels the need to steal anything and everything she can lay her hands on. It represents the ignorance of those that have to the plight of those that have not. Handsome Prince Thane takes the feminine fairy-tale trope of the helpless princess who needs to be rescued and flips it on its head. Here, he’s the prized chattel who’s just supposed to keep his pretty mouth shut and make an advantageous marriage. All together, it’s a fast-paced story with vibrant characters and humor to spare. It’s a tale of how the “family” you choose can be all the “family” you truly need.

    Are you looking for fun, adventure science-fiction without getting bogged down in all the gritty details of how things work (e.g., lightspeed)? Do you want to read something with a little heart? Marie Vibbert's first book has the promise of a series (I hope!) about a rag-tag wannabe gang of thieves. But these are thieves we can all love.

Do you want to read something with a little heart? Marie Vibbert's first book has the promise of a series (I hope!) about a rag-tag wannabe gang of thieves. But these are thieves we can all love. Through their separate stories, I grew to understand their personal struggles. I loved Ki's sad backstory and felt Margot's feeling of listlessness and uselessness and I identified with rich girl Zuleikah's boredom, but the person for whom I had the most sympathy was poor, abused Prince Thane. When the gang breaks him out of his oppressive life on Ratana (a planet whose gender discrimination is tipped towards extreme feminism), I felt complete relief. For the entire novel, I fretted about his mother catching up with him and taking him back. That poor man needs to get away from his expected life the most! I loved the name of the planets (Old Hope, Jefferson are some examples). I loved that this universe was slightly quirky and not what you would expect. The story is serious at times, lighthearted at others. Ki's over-inflated sense of self-confidence both gets the group into and out of trouble. Vibbert's world-building was spot-on: feeding you the immediate details you need to understand the situation at-hand, but leaving more questions in the wake for (again, hopefully) future tales. I can't wait to continue the adventures of the Galactic Hellcats and learn more about this quirky universe.

    I am not a science fiction genre reader. That being said, I enjoyed this book. I enjoyed the character development, I really liked the characters and felt like they were friends. I cared what happened to them. I can't wait to see this book as a movie. I am already thinking about who I would cast in the lead roles. I recommend this to LGBT teens and adults alike.

    Excellent story. Hard to put down I read a lot of books. This one has characters that keep you reading. The story arch is full of action, keeping you on your toes. Just when one crisis ends, another kicks in.
