“After Terra: Year 200” is a wild adventure across the reaches of space. But it’s also much, much more. Unlike so many of today’s movies in which characterization takes a back seat to phony CGI eye candy, Daniel Coldspring’s story focuses on character.
And this book has characters aplenty. I’d introduce you, but I think it’s best you meet them for yourself. When you do, say ‘hello’ to Matthew, Jessie, and the gang for me. Now I need to go buy the sequel.
The action unfolds two hundred years after the destruction of planet Earth, presumably from wanton consumption of natural resources, war, and other human follies. Since the dissolution of our home planet, the human race has migrated to various terraformed planets, all of which are governed by the dystopian monolith known as the Consortium. A primitive "cropper" (the future's version of our "farmer"), Matthew Garrison leaves his home and ventures onto Neptune in search of a precious ring he hopes to use to ask for his sweetheart's hand in marriage. He arranges to meet up with a shady acquaintance. Naturally, the plan goes awry, and poor Matthew is left "cred-less" and stranded in a frightening cyber landscape. He crosses paths with a gang of anarchic thieves: the foul-mouthed, ass-kicking Jessie, the sleazy hacker Obed, and the stoic, half-cyborg Gunther. The gang picks up a few other misfits along the way as they find themselves in far more trouble than they asked for after a failed mission lands them as treasonists and the main enemies of the Consortium's demagogue leader the Baron.
This book is a slim, fast-paced read. There is also a strong rebellious spirit to it that would appeal to your inner contrarian. I'd highly recommend it.
