    Brilliant sci-fi tale

    Miasma is a three part novel exploring the lives of Lanton, Emi and Mokan. Each have different perspectives and each part of their stories lead to the inescapable truth of what Miasma really means. This is very well written novel, the three characters all have distinctly different voices which helps to keep the narrative fresh and interesting. The book contains many intriguing mysteries, the aloof but powerful Jaggra, missing information in the library, and mysterious but deadly forces from above. It is a great read, the perfect mixture of mystery, humour and philosophy, and I think it would appeal to any reader.

    A Wonderful Sci-Fi/Mystery Book!

    I was given a copy of Miasma in exchange for an honest review. Miasma by Pete Alex Harris is set on the planet of Misama; a wet, swampy planet surrounded by a gaseous cloud that filters out quite a bit of sunlight. Readers are led to believe that Miasma is aptly named because of its atmospheric qualities; however, as the story line progresses, readers learn that there is more behind the meaning of the planet's name. Miasma revolves around three central characters: Tanaka Emi is a polite, soft-spoken, dignified, and bookish female. Her career choice on Miasma might be described as archivist, transcriber, and librarian. Lanton is an active and rugged male that one might label as "the dumb jock." Lanton is a packet runner, a courier that runs between settlements to deliver lightweight parcels containing research papers, books, transcriptions, and written messages. Mokan is Miasma's mad scientist and inventor. If he isn't offending his peers in the settlement with his arrogance, he is disgusting the females with his libidinous nature. Each part of the book is written in the first-person point of view, and readers have a chance to experience three distinct points of view. Out of respect for Pete Alex Harris, I will not spoil the plot for readers; however, I will say this: Miasma is a combination science fiction and mystery story. The three central characters in the book are working together to solve the mystery of the "monsters" on Miasma, and trying to solve their own personal mysteries. Given the title, I was expecting a darker story line with characters that were cynical and depressed. Instead, I discovered vibrant and rich characters with distinctive and unique personalities. Miasma's story flows effortlessly from one point of view to the next; readers have to really pay attention to the different points of view in order to find clues to solve the story's central mystery and each character's personal mysteries. I am glad that I was given the opportunity to read this wonderful sci-fi/mystery book! Miasma by Pete Alex Harris is one of those books that readers will want to read again; the characters are likeable in their own ways, the story line has subtleties that I know I missed during the first reading, and the plot is very intriguing.
