As the story begins, our bruised Captain forms another company and places the overhauled clipper in service. Lowell documents fuseactors, bridge consoles and galleys; hiring the crew is a challenging exercise. Descriptions of lonely orbitals in the Deep Dark evoke images of ships following digital atlases. Maybe not dramatic, but this crew is trying to solve a puzzle hidden between stations. Pacing is steady, while these images are detailed.
It was never clear who the conspirators were, once the crew located their base. And again, Ishmael engages in a narcissistic exercise of clothes shopping. (Minus one star)
There are some differences though. Might is right, and there are fiefdoms everywhere. Not everyone tells the truth, including some of his oldest and dearest friends. When he finds some of those friends in danger, he doesn't give it a second thought. Helping each other is what friends do, even if it could cost him his life.
Nathan Lowell brings another book to the golden age series. There are lots of old faces and many new ones. Like many of his books, it about the journey, not the destination. A fun read for sci fi fans everywhere.
The first six books were fantastic and the first in this series was also great.
This one wasn't quite up to snuff as the others.
Captain Ishmael isn't his normal self. Somewhat forgivable as he is still getting over Greta's death.
Pip... that's a different story. His character has taken a sharp turn. Not at all the rakish youth as before. Now he feels like a pathological liar and con man.
The dynamic just is all wrong. Not as fun nor charming as they were in thevery first three books.
To top it all off the dark side is just odd. Feels like a huge stretch made to fit. After about 30% of the book things get better but still feels off.
Worthy of 4 stars just not the 5 overall of the original 6 nor 5+ of the first in this series. I say 5+ because I can't give more than 5 and that one set an incredibly high bar this one simply didn't achieve.
I enjoyed the story. Thanks Nathan.
It felt that Ishmael was still busy finding himself and getting his rhythm back. He still seems "damaged" from the events in the previous books and busy healing.
Pip seems to the be protagonist in story and is driving the plot. Ishmael lets him take the lead.
Events started unfolding midway the story. The first half was Ishmael getting his house in order. The plot accelerated in the second half.
I was a bit confused by the events between the second last and final chapters.
I loved the description of the more informal/fringe regions in space, away from official government control.
Also enjoyed some of the increased suspense.
Can't wait for the next book. It feels that this book was just setting the scene for more to come.
As Ishmael and Pip bring their bar bellbell out of the yards, ready to start hauling cargo, they take themselves into the deep dark, into Toe-Hold space. They find it a lot different than confederation space. And as they attempt to solve a decades old mystery, they find Toe-Hold space can be a lot more dangerous.
