Iron Sunrise (Eschaton, #2)

By Charles Stross

Rating: 3 stars

The follow-up to Singularity Sky, this has some of the same characters and is set in the same universe, although reading the first one isn’t necessary to enjoy this one. And it is an enjoyable book, a good space opera with some nice ideas and an ending that tied up the plot in this book but set up new threads for future books in the same universe. Well worth reading.

Silent Galaxy

By William Tedford

Rating: 3 stars

After a nuclear holocaust, the only remains of human civilisation are the fledgling space colonies, which adapt and colonise the solar system. A couple of hundred years later, a Jovan fighter pilot crash-lands on Earth after a battle with Luna Nation setting off a chain of events that would take him all across the solar system and and possibly lead to the life or death of the human species.

I enjoyed this book. The story kept going at a decent pace, the characters were all likeable and sympathetic and, although there was a strand of mysticism running throughout the book, it didn’t overwhelm it, but just nudged the story along when it needed it.
