Good books (2.5 to 3.5)

The Lost Voyager [Carson Mach #2], by A.C. Hadfield

3.5 out of 5 stars. Space opera for the junkie.

3.5 stars

Carson Mach and his Rag Tag Crew are back on it! Since the last book, they apparently wasted no time getting a bad rep sheet again, but they can clear all that and cash in on a nice payday, too. All they have to do is this tiny-whimsy mission.

This really deadly, crazy dangerous mission that involves all hell of shit. Odd enough, the black hole bomb is not the worst. It’s more like Aliens meets Starship Troopers.

The phage are really aggressive.

It’s satisfying enough, it’s what I expected after the first book. Nothing less, but sadly also nothing more. And the phage hardly make sense without a controlling race, but what can you do?

There seem to be some interesting hooks throughout the story, like a potential new crew member, but apparently A.C. decided not to go with them. Which is a pity, really.

So, solid food for the space opera junkie. Don’t expect anything surprising, and you’ll be good. Nuff said.
