  • Fun and fast paced sci-fi story!!!

    A fast paced, intriguing and wild ride of a science fiction story!! This stand alone story really does have it all: a rogue AI, strong female protagonist, fun side characters, a murder mystery, a wolf companion, and more crises than you can imagine!! The tale begins with Michelle "Shell" Campion waiting to board the spaceship Ragtime as its first mate on an interstellar voyage where she will be in Dreamstate for 10 years on the outbound trip. The Ragtime is carrying colonists for the planet Bloodroot, and its captain in an artificial intelligence, so Shell's job is mostly ceremonial as the AI's always handle everything so well. Except this one time. Shell is woken from Dreamstate early to a ship where the AI is not responsive and the "you know what" has hit the fan. From here the story takes off and the twists, turns and wild events that take place keeps you thoroughly engaged in this tale. The interactions of the characters like Fin and Joke really make the story and enjoyed getting the backstories along the way. I recommend this book not only to people who love a good space adventure story but who also love a good mystery story. So this one's a winner on multiple levels!! A fun read!!

  • Not my kind of thing...

    Evidently people like this book, but wow, it's not my kind of thing. The terse, choppy writing style may be intended as an homage to the gritty dimestore noir novellas of the last century, but I just found it to be grinding and acerbic. To be fair, I stopped reading 1/4 of the way through the book. At that point, I no longer found myself invested enough in the characters to wade through the unfolding chain of calamities with them.

    Thanks for your feedback!
