    1. Oh, Razia.I should probably begin with the disclaimer that science fiction is not my thing I know that the future has endless possibilities, but I usually spend the whole book wondering why X in the future has changed while Y hasn t, and it kind of ruins the whole experience for me My suspension of disbelief is kind of unremarkable That aside, I follow the author on Twitter and I like her, and I thought her enthusiasm for her book was pretty cool, and I thought I d give it a try Space pirates, h [...]


    2. The aptly named Double Life is about Lyssa Peate, a respected scientist, and her bounty hunter alter ego, Razia As a young child Lyssa would accompany her father on his scientific journeys as he investigated the origins of the Great Creator On one such journey Lyssa ventured too close to a sacred structure and found herself nearly destroyed by a lake of fire After that Lyssa grew up knowing that the Great Creator deemed her soul to be foul, unworthy of salvation With this in mind, Lyssa began to [...]


    3. A quick and fun read, with both humor and depth I really enjoyed Double Life Our main character is Lyssa, and the we get to know her and her back story, the we understand her alter identity Razia Lyssa has been abandoned, betrayed, and rejected emotionally, spiritually, in so many ways Razia is so absurdly independent she won t let anyone help her at all because she is strong, she can do this, and she WILL do it, dang it Clearly, there s a lot of history, and as the story progresses, Lyssa Raz [...]


    4. I couldn t finish this one, so the review is only on the first fourth of the book The book wasn t for me anyway After a few pages, it was clearly a YA science fiction book leaned heavily towards the youngest end of the young adult category, with a special appeal to girls Since I am neither a teenager nor a girl, my opinion on the book doesn t carry much weight.The best way I could describe the story is Buffy in space The book combined fairly serious adult elements piracy, bounty hunters with a m [...]


    5. I may be a bit biased, as I have been waiting for the release of this book for years However, I was certainly not disappointed S Usher Evans presents us with a female heroine at the beginning of her journey to balance two completely different lives and she needs to come to terms with her past in order to move forwards with any success It is a journey that many women can relate to and the growth of Lyssa Razia throughout the book is intriguing to read However, all of this character development is [...]


    6. Engaging start and a story that keeps getting better Double Life is a creative adult read with adult language, but it has a breezy YA feel The sci fi was a lot of fun.


    7. This is a tricky review to write because I loved Double Life a lot and I m trying really hard to not ramble on about things nobody would understand I wasn t expecting to love Double Life as much as I did I was confident that it would be a 4 star read partially because I m not much of a sci fi reader I was pleasantly surprised when I was easily sucked into the world of bounty hunting and planet excavation My favourite part of Double Life was easily the whole bounty hunting aspect I can t tell you [...]


    8. So I admit it I am normally not into anything in space kinds of books But after reading this one, I am now than willing to expand my horizons Getting me to investigate a whole new genre is an accomplishment in of itself, besides the fact that it was an excellent book.Like most of us, Lyssa Peate has a day job that she s not the biggest fan of But it affords her the opportunity to leave for extended periods of time to be a pirate bounty hunter without anyone getting suspicious One she becomes Ra [...]


    9. Have you ever seen the show Cowboy Bebop It s a really amazing anime that I ll admit to watching many times and seeing as how I don t watch much anime at all, that s saying something Anyhow, Double Life really reminded me of this great show in all the best ways I love a good piracy game, and in space just makes it fun Add in some characters who are wonderfully complex though at times make you want to scream at them, ahem Razia , this was a really fun read I did find myself thinking that the wor [...]


    10. Leaving a small note to say SURPRISE The cover s been updated Over the next few weeks, I ll be updating all four Razia books, so be sure to update your Kindles and iPads sorry paperback peoples to get the new cover.


    11. Double Life is a snappy sci fi adventure that follows Lyssa Razia, the sometimes scholar, sometimes pirate, to the far reaches of space as she tries to find balance and meaning in her life It s a wild and thrilling ride filled with pirates, bounty hunters, betrayal and trust, and at its core, a quest for self knowledge that is dangerous and uncertain than any of the planets and any of the pirates Lyssa Razia encounters.Overall I found this to be an enjoyable read and a solid debut It s not your [...]


    12. Review also on the blog The Book VoyagersI needed a space opera book at the moment Double Life came at the right time and S Usher Evans wrote such a interesting universe to read about Things that I enjoyed hella lots I love Razia She s filled with spunk and so much passion in her heart She reminded me a bit of Thora James from Amour Amour by Krista and Becca Ritchie That when people tell her no and that why does she try to do stuff she won t get, she tells them to shut it and probe them all wron [...]


    13. Psychocat Reads Review of DOUBLE LIFE by S Usher Evans I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I ll start off by saying, I don t read sci fi It s just never been one of my genres of choice Of course, when S Usher Evans joined The Sassy Summer Book Party, I had to go be nosey and check out her book Hm, I may not read sci fi, but PIRATES Grant it, I haven t really read much pirate stuff either, but something about it just sounded fun In the end, I decided to tempt fate [...]


    14. This review was originally posted on Literary LegionnaireLyssa Peate is living a double life She juggles between selling planets as a Deep Space Explorer DSE and trying to hunt down intergalactic space pirates as Razia the Bounty Hunter, all while going through an identity crisis and dealing with her family that disowned her, her annoying younger brother who won t leave her alone, and Sage Teon, a guy from her past who just happens to show up whenever she s in trouble whether she wants him to or [...]


    15. Double Life by S Usher Evans I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review The story is set in a very small universe where pirating is a game of one upmanship, seeing who can get the highest bounty on their head while staying clear of the U Pol and their bounty hunting colleagues.Young Dr Lyssandra Peate, used and abused by her father and family in her tender, younger years, yearns to become Razia, a bounty hunting pirate and earning the highest bounty in the universe Con [...]


    16. Double Life 2014 introduces the reader to Lyssa, a space scientist with a dark secret Officially, she pursues a career at the Academy, excavating and selling planets for a living, but what nobody knows is that she leads a double life as a pirate under the name of Razia She is forever treading a dangerous line between her two aliases and as the bounty on her head rises, the stakes do as well Together with Lyssa, we enter the criminal underworld where pirates and bounty hunters play a dangerous ga [...]


    17. NetGalley Thanks for the copy.My feelings on books based in space is neutral I hate some I like some I love some Must I give examples But I think that Double Life is in the I like some area It isn t bad, and it is good at some parts, but there is still a lot of room for improvement.Want to dig with me Let s get started.Lyssa and Razia is the same person Lyssa is a boring doctor who discovers planets and sells them to rich people who want to do whatever they want to those planets Razia is the e [...]


    18. The original review was posted at Piplup s Shadowy BookshelfI m a huge sucker for a good sci fi adventure, so after immediately reading the sypnosis, I was hooked Pirates Bounty hunting And a good internal identity crisis I m in I read this book in the span of five days which is pretty good considering school has been overwhelming me When I finished it in French class, I absolutely freaked out and needed the next one And with that, I rate Double Life with an amazing 5 5 stars I was able to relat [...]


    19. Lyssa Peate and Razia are the same person.And they are representative of every woman on this planet and, who knows, maybe others.While Lyssa Peate excavates new planets and sells them to the highest bidder, Razia hunts pirates While Lyssa Peate pretends to continue her father s research as an outcast from the rest of her family, Razia s trying to climb the ranks Both of them are desperate for their freedom Lyssa Peate wants to disappear for good, and Razia wants her pick of the pirate bounties A [...]


    20. A wonderful beginning to a new series This is what science fiction should be all about enough technical information to keep you interested, but enough what if to let your mind roam over new vistas, and strange encounters.With an outstanding, strong female character, Ms Evans takes you on a wonderful ride through the double life of her main character The dichotomy is written well enough that the two parts do not blur into one another, yet flow seamlessly when you flip hats The recipe used for thi [...]


    21. I started to follow this author on Twitter before reading any of her workd after a whileI read the blurb about this book It caught my interest I ve read a lot of Sci Fi Fantasy over the years, but the concept sounded fun Pirates in space that bounty hunt each other for sport, a young female scientist who really wants to be a respected pirate, and a mixed up family life fraught with angst Well, I was ready for light hearted, page turning, romping adventure and this book did not disappoint While t [...]


    22. 5 out of 5 stars for Double Life Lyssa Peate is a scientist by day and a pirate bounty hunter by night Even though she is just as capable or so than any of the male pirates she is not given to opportunity to prove herself until she becomes Razia, one of the most wanted pirates in the universe.S Usher Evans has created a wonderful sci fi world filled with bounty hunters and pirates and the moral question of a good vs evil soul I was totally amazed at how much I became wrapped up in this world Ly [...]


    23. It is always refreshing to see a kick butt female lead, especially in science fiction Razia is a butt kicker, but because she is a woman, the only female pirate for that matter, she doesn t get the same respect as her male colleagues, despite working twice as hard as any of them Sadly, this may be fiction, but the real world parallels can be drawn without much of a stretch Razia and Lyssa can be a bit brusque The biggest criticism that I see from other reviewers is that she can t accept help whe [...]


    24. I ve been on such a space kick lately Double Life was a book I was looking forward to, and S Usher Evans definitely delivered But this book wasn t just SciFi It had a lot of depth to it that I appreciated It added many extra layers to the story that made it stand out The one thing that stood out the most to me about the main character, Razia, was that she was relatable Her story resonated so well with me and formed an instant bond between us There is plenty of masterful character development to [...]


    25. Scientist by day, pirate bounty hunter by night Double Life is the story of Lyssa Razia, a young woman struggling to make her place in the world The main character is one that many women, and men, can relate to Razia knows the life she wants to lead and has to deal with people telling her on a daily basis that she can t or is not good enough to live her dream as a pirate bounty hunter She is driven by a need to prove what she is capable of and prove her, many, critics wrong There are many unansw [...]


    26. OK, so let me start by saying, this book isn t my usual read I really like to have a bit romance in my stories, butat doesn t mean I didn t like this book.Ms Evans did a fantastic job of world building And, while there was a lot of science things in there, I didn t feel it was overly complicated or difficult to follow I didn t really understand how a pirate could also be a bounty hunter, as those two things seem diametrically opposed to me I also felt there were times that Razia wasn t as stron [...]


    27. I have received this book via first reads giveaway.The story of a young female scientist and bounty hunter named Lyssa, trying to make a career in a world in which she was refused by her own family But being a woman makes it unreasonably difficult for Razia, her alter ego, to become a fellow pirate The striking plot, happening in the future is full of twists and turns, and has interesting views on spirituality I m definitely looking forward to reading of Lyssa s Razia s adventures.


    28. Double Life was a good read This was a new and refreshing take on science fiction The characters were well developed, likeable, and easy to relate to even though they and the story line was different from anything that I have read before The book is the first in a series, but it ends without cliffhanger I look forward to the next book in the series not because I have to get unanswered questions answered, but because I want to see what happens next.


    29. Since I m so busy this week, I m just gonna write a short review and edit it later I got this book through first reads.I really enjoyed this book Even if I m not a huge sci fi fan, I must say I was really hooked PIRATES A Solid debut from the author The Characters are interesting The book is refreshing I highly recommend it.


    30. Pretty freaking awesome adventure story The author is pretty rad herself Can t wait to start the second book.
