"But wait!" you might say. "I thought it was scifi!"
Well, there are spaceships, other worlds, and a radioactive guy that burns when exposed to air. But the scifi bit is pretty light. Setting more than story. So if you're looking for hi-tech hardcore space battles, or robots vs aliens, this isn't the book.
This is a gritty group of repo agents mixed up with the wrong sort of people and trying to do the best they can in a tough spot. The story would be right at home in turn-of-the-century New York, or present day Vegas. The fact that it's set far in the future on spaceships and other planets gives it a fun and unexpected tone, and for me as a scifi fan, made it really enjoyable.
Mike's great at world building and plot. This is a dirty, corrupt , industrial galaxy where Ripley or Mal would feel right at home, and there are lots of little, realistic touches that had me saying, "Hey, I know that mobster." It's a refreshing change of pace from the squeaky clean politics you usually see in these type of stories. And he moves the story along, throwing twists and double crosses at you at a pretty good clip.
I wish the main characters had a little more personality and differentiation. It's a little rough going in the beginning until they start to click, but not enough to lose a star.
All in all a great debut and I can't wait to read more!
