Who doesn’t like to be kept guessing in a science fiction book? I will admit to being surprised by such a tame ending as I expected Maggie to still be back on her ship that she originally crashed. (laugh) Now I just said a tame ending...I kind of just lied. Metzger throws in a diablogical twist at the end that had me pausing, then saying, “NO WAY!!!” Not telling.
Pay attention. This is all I am going to say….well no it’s not. Read the book. The next book will be out any day now.
This whole story takes place from Maggie's POV, and I really liked her internal dialogue as the story got set up. At first I was admittedly confused if she was trans or not, but I think I understand that she's both sexes. The main theme of the story and her journey is that it doesn't matter regardless. We, as individual people, aren't confined to being defined by our sex.
Speaking of sex, there isn't any in this book and very little romance. Since this is the first in the series, I'm assuming the relationship that does start will continue more in the second.
What is really brilliant about this book is how well planned out the space world is by the author. I always admire the creativity that is in a well written sci-fi book, and this did not disappoint.
Overall, I'm looking forward to seeing how this series continues.
This was a fairly enjoyable read and I'm always here for lesbians in space but overall I just didn't feel like there was a good balance between the romance / gender introspection stuff and the mystery / sci-fi plot. I think both were fairly well developed but they didn't really seem to go together a lot of the time and weren't integrated in a way that I thought flowed very well. Sometimes I would be very invested in the mystery of what was happening on the station and it would stop for a long internal monologue on something completely different and then once I was like 'ok that was interesting' it would throw me right back into the events on the ship and I was like 'oh yeah that's what we were supposed to be doing'. It was still an enjoyable read though and I would probably be interested in reading the next book in the series depending on what the summary looks like.
This is a fast-paced hard SciFi novel with a strong woman character and so many twists and turns, that the reader doesn’t dare stop reading. The ending was stunningly unexpected and took a few seconds to comprehend.
If you love hard SciFi this book is for you. If love strong women driving the story, this book is for you. If you love books that are unique because of the issues raised and discussed within the confines of finely written novel, this book is for you. It needs to sit at the top of your to-be-read list.
