Check it out, just prepare for the fact that this story feels like a bit of a tease.
Here is an example from the first page. Apparently until 60 seconds before the book starts the hero has had a wonderful and close relationship with his father. Now his dad seems to turn on him and he wonders if his Dad has been scamming him for 20 years only pretending he cares for him. That doesn't happen to real people unless they are idiots. The whole conversation is unbelievable. People don't suddenly wonder if someone they know well is secretly totally different. After 20 years of living with someone you can't make that big a mistake judging them. Real people can't totally hide an evil side every day for that many years of intimate living. You at least get hints that make you suspicious. Even if they did it is not your first thought. If your parents do something strange either you suspected their motives all along or you wonder what bizarre thing is making them act so strange. You don't immediately suspect your own judgement.
Clearly the author is creating conflict and can't be bothered to make it seem real. I suspect Dad is kindly kicking the fledgling out of the nest so he can learn to fly but the author wants the hero to not realize this. If this was as far as it went it wouldn't be a problem. Lots of authors fumble at artificially creating conflict but tell a good story after the conflict is set up. The problem with this book is that this is a pattern.Read more ›
Great job, M Pax. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip you took me on. I appreciated your characterization, the pacing, and how this new world was introduced without too much direct exposition and/or description. It was an easy-to-read page-turner, and I shall definitely be on the lookout for more of your works.
I became a fan of the author when I read Semper Audacia last year. I can't remember the details of that review, but I decided then that I was going to be reading everything I could get my hands on that had the name M Pax, on the cover.
So, this came around and my perception of what this author is capable of just went up considerably. This is MAJOR league awesome. I need, what? I need another star to hand out, can I do that? It's a six star read.
Oh, the story? It's a tale of a poor, bio-engineered, far-future human that just wants to be the owner/operator of a bar. That's it. But all of damned creation seems to be hell bent on making sure any opportunities for success are taken from him before he can achieve them.
I rooted for this guy, and felt thrill after thrill as he fell into, and out of, trouble from the very first sentence of the story. I cannot wait for the next installment.
