Once on Arcadia, the travelers must dodge aliens of various sizes and levels of ferocity, while looking for clues as to the fate of the first group of humans. Problems, both external and within the group, complicate the mission. Borg’s debut novel has quite a bit of suspense, a good character development, and lots of world building. The gadgets, although present, don’t over-power the story, either, which I like.
As in many worthy stories, the bad guys (or critters) aren’t all bad, and the good guys aren’t all good. Some of the early reviewers have stated that the story was so compelling that they read it in a single sitting. Yes, it is suspenseful, but I could, and did put it down. However, I did enjoy the book all the way through. Without giving any spoilers, there are elements in this story that remind me of some excellent science fiction writers, especially Jules Verne and Pierre Boulle (Planet of the Apes.) The ending isn’t quite a cliff hanger, but it opens the door for sequels, and I hope the author continues the story line in other novels.
Edge of Extinction is skillfully written. Kim Borg states in her acknowledgements at the end of the novel that her goal is to both educate and entertain the reader, and she accomplishes the latter for sure. Borg is a new author for fans of classic science fiction to watch. Her debut novel is a winner!
