I'm a book buying junkie who buys books faster than I can read them. But what better way is there to live than surrounded by books?! I read as much as I can and I do my best to give coherent reviews...which doesn't always happen. I enjoy many genres, which is likely the reason I struggle with deciding my next read.
This was a truly fascinating read. I really enjoyed the format. From one page to the next you didn't know what you were going to get, which was kind of exciting. The story was fantastic.
One consortium illegally colonized a planet for mining, and when the other consortium found out they launched a deadly attack with biochemical warfare and regular everyday missiles. Survivors are rescued, but they rescue ships are overrun with refugees and somewhat crippled. Luckily their dreadnought attacker has been crippled as well. Then it's a race to see who can get across the many, many lightyears to safety on a space station and get the word out about the attack (or silence the survivors.)
In the meantime the biowarfare waged is causing major troubles on one of the refugee ships, and the battleship's AI is damaged enough to make it cuckoo for coco puffs! There is so much going on in the story, and surprisingly, none of it was lost in the varying formats or the multiple characters. Very much looking forward to the next book in the series!
