Bred to kill, Lucy Okuda has escaped her space station prison. A schizophrenic psychopath hunted by the Obsidian Order, her former captives and tormentors, Lucy lives a life on the edge as M-Prov Carnival Supply Company’s premier assassin. Jillian Caldwell is the most powerful woman who has ever lived. The CEO of Linn Corporation, Jillian leads one of the three most powerful corporations in the universe – and someone wants her dead. In a universe filled with corporate deception and intrigue, everything is not as it seems.

One of the things that I profusely enjoyed about Okuda! A Dryden Universe Corporate Wars Novel was the ties to Japan and to Japanese culture. As someone who is into Japan and its culture, I took much delight in seeing connections from Japan’s culture to the culture of the worlds surrounding Okuda!. Even though I did not think the culture aspect had a massive impact on the storyline as a whole, I personally enjoyed the unique touches that were added to the novel. Another thing that I profusely enjoyed was the details in the novel; each world and scene, in the novel was uniquely described, from the world itself to the people who lived in said world. There was enough detail in order to know about the surroundings of the main cast as well as to explain each scene so that the reader can vividly imagine what’s happening. Each character had their own personality, skill set, and flaws, never overlapping with another character, standing as uniquely as possible among the cast of characters, no matter how major or minor they were in the storyline as a whole. Okuda! A Dryden Universe Corporate Wars Novel stands out among novels in its genre with a unique world and storyline, though remaining within the science-fiction genre. While there were things that I enjoyed about reading Okuda! there were a few things, though small and insignificant in the scheme of the novel, that did not stick with me. One of those reasons was how it took a while for me to actually get into the novel itself, most likely due to my limited knowledge of the background of the world and the characters themselves, which slowly expanded as the novel progressed. But that did not last long, as my interest started to grow as the novel went on. Okuda! A Dryden Universe Corporate Wars Novel was filled with action throughout, grabbing ahold of my attention until the very end.
