In the far future, humanity settles the stars, bioengineering its descendants to survive in a harsh universe. This is the second book in the science fiction series, The Backworlds. A space opera adventure.

 Revenge is on Craze’s mind. He chews on it every day along with the relentless dust on Pardeep Station. He dreams of grander wealth, enough to make his father choke.

 That’s the dream consuming him when the interstellar portal opens, spitting out a ship that should no longer exist. A battleship spoiling for a fight. Yet the war with the Foreworlds ended two generations ago.

 One wrong move and the shaky truce will end. So will Craze and his friends.

 

 

 

#SciFi Worth Reading: The Sol Majestic #BookReview It’s Inevitable!

What an enjoyable feast of a read! The Sol Majestic by Ferrett Steinmetz was a treat I came back for every night with a voracious appetite for more.

Wonderful characters, a fascinating setting, and an original plot that had me wondering about my own place in the fate of my fellow humans.  I love quirky characters, and The Sol Majestic had a good number. Not only were they full of character, they were also endearing.

The world on which the story unfolded, a space station, was rich, exotic, and yet familiar. The main character, a sixteen-year-old boy named Kenna, is struggling to survive, and then struggles to save himself and the restaurant that took him in like family.

It was a satisfying story with a beautiful ending that became inevitable. Yes, I highly recommend this book. I’ve got another book on order from this author, which I’m looking forward to.

Kenna, an aspirational teen guru, wanders destitute across the stars as he tries to achieve his parents’ ambition to advise the celestial elite.

Everything changes when Kenna wins a free dinner at The Sol Majestic, the galaxy’s most renowned restaurant, giving him access to the cosmos’s one-percent. His dream is jeopardized, however, when he learns his highly-publicized “free meal” risks putting The Sol Majestic into financial ruin. Kenna and a motley gang of newfound friends—including a teleporting celebrity chef, a trust-fund adrenaline junkie, an inept apprentice, and a brilliant mistress of disguise—must concoct an extravagant scheme to save everything they cherish. In doing so, Kenna may sacrifice his ideals—or learn even greater lessons about wisdom, friendship, and love.

#SciFi Worth Reading: Transmission #BookReview

An emotional and gripping read, Transmission by Morgan Rice was a page turner. Kevin is dying of a rare brain disease, but he has a lasting gift to offer humankind. He’s the only one who can understand a message being sent by an alien race. What’s the message? Who are the aliens?

These questions kept me reading. Hope for Kevin kept me reading. Hope for a momentous discovery kept me reading.

Kevin and the scientists who go on this journey with him were great characters. There were some good twists and turns as this mystery unraveled. If you’re a fan of Earth meeting aliens, you won’t be disappointed by this book. There are more books in the series, which I need to acquire. I need to know what happens next.

When SETI finally receives a signal from an alien civilization, what will happen next?

A 13 year old boy, dying of a rare brain disease, is the only one able to hear and decode signals from outer space. SETI confirms it is a real signal.

What is the message? How will the world react?

And most of all: are the aliens coming?
