Rosemary Harper doesn't expect much when she joins the crew of the aging Wayfarer. While the patched-up ship has seen better days, it offers her a bed, a chance to explore the far-off corners of the galaxy, and most importantly, some distance from her past. An introspective young woman, she's never met anyone remotely like the ship's diverse crew, including Sissix, the exotic reptilian pilot, chatty engineers Kizzy and Jenks, who keep the ship running, and Ashby, their noble captain. Life aboard the Wayfarer is chaotic and crazy-exactly what Rosemary wants. It's also about to get extremely dangerous when the crew is offered the job of a lifetime. Tunneling wormholes through space to a distant planet is definitely lucrative and will keep them comfortable for years. But risking her life wasn't part of the plan. In the far reaches of deep space, the tiny Wayfarer crew will confront a host of unexpected mishaps and thrilling adventures that force them to depend on each other. To survive, Rosemary's got to learn how to rely on this assortment of oddballs-an experience that teaches her about love and trust, and that having a family isn't necessarily the worst thing in the universe.… (mer)

    Ancillary Justice av Ann Leckie (souloftherose)

    The Empress of Salt and Fortune av Nghi Vo (andreas.wpv)
    andreas.wpv: The book is really different in story and in setting. Empress is high fantasy - but barely visible, and tells a story of a story being collected from the maidservant of an empress. While the story is so different, the mood and feel of the story, and the telling of the story are similar - a tender loving observation of human beings living their lives together in non-ordinary circumstances. I have not read the next books of the 'empress' - so not sure this holds, but to me, they are so similar.… (mer)

This far future sci fi novel focuses on a space ship and its crew. The ship is designed to bore wormholes in space. It takes on a particularly dangerous mission with a massive pay-off to create a wormhole in a war-torn location. The plot of the novel, admittedly, is a little meandering and thin, but that's not the point of a book like this. It is all about the characters - some human, some mutant humans, some barely resembling humans - how they interact and what their backstories are. This focus on people (or friendly aliens at least) makes the story far richer, funnier, and more immersive than conventional novels. It is terrific fun to read. ( )

DNF @ 60%.

I love the worldbuilding, but there's just nothing happening in this book, except for people talking about and explaining things. Just characters telling each other about the world, but since they do nothing, I don't really know who they are and why I should care about them. It's all tell, don't show and sadly, I did not enjoy one chapter of it.

Two stars for the worldbuilding, which is, as I said, excellent. ( )

This book fits a genre I've been begging for but didn't think existed. I'm not even sure if it has a name. Slice-of-life sci-fi? Journey-over-destination? Who's to say, all I've got is that this book is terrific and is sure to invoke a warm feeling in all fans of sci-fi. ( )

Really enjoyed this. It was like Firefly but with lots of aliens. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series. ( )

Oh stars, where do I even begin? I'm not actually sure I can find any faults with this book. There are sci-fi universes out there that are bigger and with more detail, but few are quite so immersive. The Wayfarer was full of beautiful, flawed and fantastic individuals that were not only believable but enchanting and utterly fascinating. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series, and I hope there will be many more than 3 books in it.
