Book with cat: hugging book

Book #25 of 2018: Admiral

Admiral by Sean Danker
Traditional or self-published: Traditional
Rating: Loved (Hated-Disliked-Okay-Liked-Loved)

I loved this book... but it also took me forever to read it. While the story had completely hooked me, I was so distracted by non-reading stuff through the last quarter of it.

Four people wake up out of stasis pods on a spaceship. They're alone, just the four of them. Three cadet and one man who had been in a pod marked as the ship's admiral's. But is he really one?

The group has little time to try to figure that out. Their ship crash landed on an uncharted planet. A hostile one.

Bad things kept happening nonstop in the story (it was action-packed, if I wanted to be cliche about phrasing it), but the did so in a holistic way. Sometimes it feels like an author has a checklist or outline of things they want to happen, but this felt completely realistic and natural.

I loved the whole book, and I already have the next two in the series on my Kindle.
