Box Set 4,5,6

The galaxy beyond the Backworlds is rife with trouble. The desperate search to save a friend ends in the discovery of an unstoppable enemy.

This boxed set contains books 4, 5, and 6 in the Backworld series: Beyond the Edge, Worlds on Edge, and Precipice.

Beyond the Edge

Some truths are better left unfound.

For two years, Lepsi has been missing. A haunted spaceship has a message from him. Maybe Lepsi isn’t dead. Craze and Captain Talos travel to uncharted worlds, searching a region of the galaxy beyond the Backworlds. Out there, they stumble upon a terrible truth.

Worlds on Edge

Home is worth the fight.

War is coming. A horde of merciless aliens poise just beyond the Edge. Racing ahead of the apocalypse, Craze rushes to warn his people and plan a defense. Only, he can’t go home. Banned from Pardeep Station, he must wage another war to save his home.

Precipice

Salvation comes at a price.

A new enemy wants to destroy the galaxy. The Fo’wo’s want another war.

Annihilation is coming to the Backworlds, and Craze’s option to prevent the genocide of his people is a nightmare. The best chance for survival is to overcome a century of hate and forge an alliance with the Fo’wo’s. If he succeeds, Craze will be the most hated man in the galaxy.

 

 

 

 

#Scifi Worth Reading: The Truth of Valor #BookReview

I fell hard for Gunny Sergeant Torin Kerr in Valor’s Choice, the first book in Tanya Huff’s space opera series. Action-packed, unique and unpredictable with one kick-ass character is what caught my attention. I then devoured the next three books in the series: The Better Part of Valor, The Heart of Valor, and Valor’s Trial.

So when this book came out, The Truth of Valor, I was thrilled.

Huff threw us into a new aspect of Kerr’s life as she tries to adjust to being a former Marine. Kerr kicks ass as much as ever, and I hope the series will continue. I will certainly keep reading.

Although this novel did not surprise me as much as the previous books in The Confederation Novels, there was still a lot of action, and a lot of fun. The imagination is superb, and it’s an above-average read.

If you haven’t discovered the Confederation Novels yet, I envy you reading them for the first time. They rock.

This is definitely a series I recommend.

 

 

 

#SciFi Worth Reading: A Memory Called Empire #BookReview

A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine was a rich and wonderful read. The galaxy it’s set in is awe-inspiring and full of novelty, yet it is also very familiar, which makes it an easy read.

The plot follows a young diplomat from a small mining station, Mahit Dzmare, on her assignment to the sprawling, consuming empire.

The empire has conquered and ‘civilized’ many worlds and Mahit fell in love with their culture as a child. She’s thrilled to get to experience it and dreams of becoming part of the empire.

Her mining colony uses technology that records memories. The technology embedded into her brain allowing her to share the experiences of the former ambassador malfunctions. Not only that, the former ambassador is dead under mysterious circumstances.

This novel has political intrigue, mystery, and a simmering tension about to break out into civil war.

The impression of the empire is beautiful and also not something I’d want to become a part of. There was aching longing intertwined with ugly reality. I eagerly returned to this novel every day, and would read more by this author. I recommend it.

Winner of the 2020 Hugo Award for Best Novel

Ambassador Mahit Dzmare arrives in the center of the multi-system Teixcalaanli Empire only to discover that her predecessor, the previous ambassador from their small but fiercely independent mining Station, has died. But no one will admit that his death wasn’t an accident―or that Mahit might be next to die, during a time of political instability in the highest echelons of the imperial court.

Now, Mahit must discover who is behind the murder, rescue herself, and save her Station from Teixcalaan’s unceasing expansion―all while navigating an alien culture that is all too seductive, engaging in intrigues of her own, and hiding a deadly technological secret―one that might spell the end of her Station and her way of life―or rescue it from annihilation.
