  • Who's a good dog?

    A "spacey" private investigator story. McCall (along with her android Scipio) is hired to locate stolen maple syrup. They study the employees of the company and look at the surroundings of the theft. In the meantime, she meets Junkyard (aaahh) an injured, abandoned dog in the nearby junkyard. Nice story.

  • Junkyard

    I grabbed this book when I noticed it was free. I already had a few of this author's other books, but I eventually decided to start with this series. I started with Junkyard as it sounded like it would work as a prequel and I already had bought book 1 as well. I think it works great either as prequel or later in the series as it gives a bit of backstory about how McCall gets her dog Junkyard. Junkyard tells the story of a mission McCall gets hired for .They have to find the missing maple syrup that's been stolen from a warehouse. McCall has her android Scipio by her side, who she rescued a while ago. And together they try and figure out what happened to the maple syrup. I liked this novella, it was the perfect length for this bit of backstory. I felt for the dog Junkyard immediately and I am glad McCall decides to take him in. It also was fun to see how they tried to find out who stole the syrup. I wasn't sure who had done it, but in the end the person who stole it makes a move that reveals them. It wasn't a very intricate mystery or plot line, but it was still fun to read and it did a good job giving me a feel for the main characters and the type of story I can expect from this series. I liked McCall, she an autistic captain who likes her freedom and doesn't like interacting with other people. I thought she was a likable character. It's clear she cares about Scipio and quickly the dog as well. And she is friendly enough even tough human interaction isn't really her thing. I thought her autism was well done, it felt realistic how that was handled and added an unique twist to her character. I also really liked Scipio and his love for expensive clothing, it really gave him an interesting personality. Junkyard seemed like a fun dog and I am looking forward to see more of him. Although we never find out part of his backstory and I wonder if we even will. To summarize: This was a fun novella that made me even more excited for the first book in this series. And I started Fractured Stars right after I finished this one. This novella provides a bit of backstory for McCall and how she finds her dog Junkyard. As well as a short mystery involving stolen maple syrup they have to solve. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and seeing them solve the mystery. I liked McCall and her autism felt handled realistically and added an unique touch to her character. I also liked Scipio with his taste for expensive clothing. All in in all this was a fun introduction to the series.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The dog lives!

    McCall is an autistic bounty hunter/investigator. She's an expert in tracking down people who've eluded capture. Only … her new personal assistant, Scipio, has signed her up for a job tracking down 200 tons of missing maple syrup. Part whodunnit and part science fiction. Think Asimov's Caves of Steel with the (very welcome) addition of a 150-pound adorable failure of a guard dog. If Goodreads allowed half stars, I'd take half a star off for failure to include a content warning that there would be reference to horrible animal cruelty. Go ahead and kill all the fictional people you want, but if you harm one hair on a dog's head, I will never forgive you. If the dog had died, I'd have put the author straight onto my never-again list. I'm happy to report, she's going on my favourites list instead.

    Thanks for your feedback!
