From the blurb and cover, I wasn't sure if "The Klockwerk Kraken" would be just sex or have a plot and good characters. Luckily, it was the second.
"The Klockwerk Kraken" has an emphasis on the people rather than the science and shows an interesting spectrum of human nature—from the fact slavery still exists in some systems to Teo’s enormous, close family. Jimenez's story is sad but also uplifting, and Teo (a descendent of genetically altered humans) is interesting and relatable. Both have earned their way to where they are (for different reasons), and while Teo is relatively happy with his bar (apart from the delivery issues), Jimenez still struggles to free himself from his past and the effects it has on his mind. The ‘verse was well thought out, the geography researched, and the cultures interesting.
For a novella, "The Klockwerk Kraken" actually covers a fair number of events and I enjoyed it enough that it is now permanently on my ereader. I also looked up the author’s other stories. Definitely a good read for any sci-fi/futuristic/fantasy story lovers.
Jimenez is a freed and rehabilitated slave. He spent a long while on Celos, Teo's home planet, in an experimental program for freed slaves. He's totally attracted to Teo, but he's not sure if that's his own emotions or a remnant of his slave programming--he is still learning to negotiate in the world as an independent free man. Teo's offer of help is distressing, because Jimenez isn't sure if he should be offering some reciprocation for Teo's kindness. Traveling through empty silence of the Nothing is especially suited to Jimenez, who still fears crowds, loud noises and slaver ships.
Over the course of book, Teo and Jimenez do begin a sexual relationship, but it's a bit dine and dash--Jimenez shows up late in the evening, and leaves before Teo wakes. Teo would like more, but he's afraid to scare away his skittish partner. Jimenez is afraid to reveal too much of himself, particularly his scars from years as a slave.Read more ›
