Good book! Stars Uncharted

Stars UnchartedStars Uncharted by S.K. Dunstall
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book hit many of my likes in a story!

  • Space travel.
  • Set in an indeterminate future time.
  • Space salvage (though not much of this, and mostly just kind of mentioned).
  • No aliens.
  • Tech that just exists, with no need to explain it.
  • Male and female characters that don't fall in love and are just friends or co-workers (though a couple of them maybe started down that path).
  • Main characters living on the raggedy-edge of making a living, worrying about where their next paycheck is coming from, but happily working for it doing what they want.

And probably many more.

Read it!

Review: Days Until Home

Days Until Home Days Until Home by Mark Gardner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What an interesting idea for writing and structuring a book.
I couldn't tell one author's sections from another - so the book/narrative flowed well. The story kept me reading, and kept me guessing whodunit right up until the end. Which I think was the point.
Interesting characters, interesting backstories, interesting world-building.

Good stuff!

Review: The Clockwork Dynasty

The Clockwork Dynasty The Clockwork Dynasty by Daniel H. Wilson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fascinating world-building.

I want to know more about the avtomats and their history - specifically, what their anima is and how it's made!

Another good book from Daniel H. Wilson!

I got an ARC of this book for review from NetGalley.

Aye, Robot - a review

Aye, Robot (A Rex Nihilo Adventure) (Starship Grifters Book 2)Aye, Robot (A Rex Nihilo Adventure) by Robert Kroese
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Another fun Rex Nihilo book. Not as ...crazy as the first one, but still had some moments of "Did I really just read that? And why did I enjoy it so much?"

When I first found this book on Amazon, I tweeted this:

So yeah, I'll be looking out for more Rex Nihilo books.
