Black Dawn is the first book in the The Eurynome Code series. The story centers on Karin Makos, a pilot who is laying below the radar from her past. She joins a small scrounging vessel to help her stay hidden. After they are heading back into space after a routine job, they are assaulted late at night by Shades. Everywhere around space, shadows are taking over people and turning them zombie-like. Karin and her friends are trying to understand what is happening and how best to outrun it to find their loved ones. Karin has a secret that when it comes to light will set off a whole new chain of events. Will they find the answers they seek?
Final Rating: 5 Stars
Well, not only did it not go wrong. It actually went quite right! I ended up starting this pretty shortly after buying it, which is rare to start out with. And then I actually really enjoyed it. My first worry, about the grammar and style, was unfounded. The style is readable and fun, and I found it easy to slip into and out of the book. I haven't been feeling well for the past week or so, so this was very welcome indeed.
As far as action, it also had plenty of that. The first chapter or two were a bit slow, as they introduced Karin and the other main characters, but once the main plot kicked in, I found very few dull moments. The plot moves along at a decent clip, as you would expect from a shorter book like this, and looking back, I feel like a lot happened. The world-building can be a little slow to come into play, and for a while I felt like I was actually reading fantasy, rather than scifi, just based on the main character's abilities. However, as the book goes on, we learn more about Karin and her past, and that feeling pretty much faded away for me. There is still a ton that I want to know about the world though, and lots of questions to be answered.
The characters are also quite fun. Karin is the main, but Soo-Jin, Marc, and Ethan also play prominent roles, and I'm looking forward to learning more about all of them. Although the book is short, each of them did have a part to play and individuals worries in the story, which I was really happy about. I prefer my casts ensemble.
In all, I was pleasantly surprised by this book, and I'm looking forward to reading more of the series when I get a chance.
