Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

In the far future, humanity settles the stars, bioengineering its descendants to survive in a harsh universe. This is the first book in the science fiction series, The Backworlds. A space opera adventure.

After the war with the Foreworlders, Backworlders scatter across the remaining planets. Competition is fierce, and pickings are scant. Scant enough that Craze’s father decides to improve his fortunes by destroying his son. He tells his only boy their moon isn’t big enough for them both and gives Craze a ticket for the next transport leaving the space dock.

Cut off from everyone he knows with little money and no knowledge of the worlds beyond, Craze must find a way to forge a new life and make his father regret this day. First, he must survive.

L'autore

M. Pax is author of the sci-fi series, The Backworlds, and the new adult science fiction fantasy The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear. A Browncoat and SG fan, she’s also slightly obsessed with Jane Austen. In the summers she docents as a star guide at Pine Mountain Observatory where the other astronomers believe she has the most extensive collection of moon photos in existence. No fear, there will be more next summer. She lives in stunning Central Oregon with the Husband Unit and two lovely, spoiled cats.

Craze is a Verkinn from the planet Sienga. His people appreciate hard work and deal making. Which he's done. But with the approval of the council his father Bast is taking on a second wife. The second wife happens to be Yerniss, Craze's girlfriend. In order to make things simpler, Bast and the council label Craze a Leecher, which is like calling him a welfare queen and among the Verkinn, it's one of the worst things you can be branded.

Being handed a few chips and a backpack with a few more items, Craze is chased down to the docks by members of the council where he's put on a ship to Elstwhere. On the ship he meets and befriends two Aviarmen named Talos and Lepsi who are on their way to buy a ship and make their way out on the Edge.

On Elstwhere Craze also meets a shape shifter who essentially makes him the fall guy for a shifty deal with some Foreworlder's. The deal goes south and Craze gets picked up by the law, but his new friends Talos and Lepsi convince the lawman that Craze is just a naive fool. Together with the lawman they begin tracking down the Foreworlders.

I loved this book. I'd been meaning to read it for a long time and when I finally started, I couldn't put it down. The writing is tight, the characters are tight, and the worlds are clever and the imagery fantastic. The pacing is good so it makes for a quick read.

The interaction between Craze and the Aviarmen is great and the way they bond is believable. Essentially they are all starting out new and need friends in order to survive out on the Edge. The one gripe that I have is with the lawman, Dactill. The way that he finds himself as part of the main group of characters seems a bit convenient (not that he's with them, but why he stays) but this is the first book in a series so I'm sure we'll get a bit more about him.

The Backworlds(Book 1) by M. Pax

This book really entertained me.

I love character driven stories and I frankly thought at the beginning that there was no way a shallow self absorbed character like this was going to get me through the story.

The problem is that for the most part the story is well written and the style of writing drew me into the story.

It took a while for my thick head to figure out that Craze was some sort of gene-engineered made for space being. And as I read I began to wonder if perhaps he wasn't a victim of some bit of inbreeding. Craze reminds me of a few people who at the age of 30 were still sponging off their parents. But, it might be in this case that his parents may be overly opportunistic and have continually used him and this time they gave him the boot and his father stole his girlfriend. Also, unless I got things wrong I think all of this happened with the approval of his mother.

These things come out throughout the narrative and some of Craze's inner dialogue.

Reluctantly Craze leaves. To be honest he's forced out by use of some sort of electronic prod. He has to go to Elstwhere and from there he has to make his own life. Craze wants to own a bar and his thoughts constantly return to the orderliness of his racks of exotic liquors. I think that Craze may be a bit OCD. On the way to Elstwhere he meets Lepsi and Talos some Aviarmen who are on their way to obtain a ship to begin their own enterprise. Craze gets involved with them from the point of view that he too must make his own life now. He sees them as a means to his end.

They also seem to have the same revenge filled nature that Craze is beginning to acquire.

This whole story begins to become of comedy of errors with most of the characters coming off as being users. They are using each other and any one they can to obtain their goals.

Craze meets the -possibly bisexual -Gattar, a Jax who introduces him to a scheme to obtain chocolate- which is precious. Lepsi and Talos recognize the Jax and clue Craze into how the chocolate might be a red herring for the trafficking of prohibited weapons from Earth or the Fore'worlds.

Add in the involvement of local authorities and all the best laid plans....

As a forewarning to everyone even though this book is long enough to be considered at least a novella and probably a novel it completes with the air of being incomplete because it's part of a series and because the author chose to end it as she chose to end it.

All I can say is if her engaging and humorous style prevails throughout the series I'll have no problem with these stories. It kept reminding me of the Retief stories by Keith Laumer- except lacking the strong sensible character that was Retief.

Nonetheless Craze has some redeeming qualities and his associates prove to be both a foil and a balance for him.

Nice Entertaining Sci-Fi and Strange alien fiction- these characters are not human and for the most part don't act any more human than a bit of anthropomorphizing here and there like salt an pepper for flavor.

I agree with another reviewer Steven J Morris that the thought processes our protagonist seems to have are not realistic and, i confess I got through the book not noticing that. I thought this book was rather well written, insofar as it being imaginative and I'd say I read a lot of Sci fi and am pretty picky. This book was free, so I could hardly argue with the price i was paying either. But when i purchased the second book and read 3/4 of the way through i was very disappointed and gave up (and also the price really isn't all that great for what you're getting, these books are small novels). But I encourage M Pax to continue because despite Mr Morris' vitriol which I think was a little harsh, i think you have plenty of talent. Maybe you just need some help with the male perspective?

One of my favorite authors for her imaginative and highly skilled writing style. I've read many of her books and she never disappoints. Very vividly described alien landscapes and characters takes me to places beyond my own imagination. Highly recommend this author and this work of hers to sci-fy and fantasy fans, and for anyone looking to escape for a bit.

I just read this book for the second time and was surprised to see I didn't review it the first time! I loved this book. After being betrayed by his father and his home world , Craze is forced to face the universe alone and scared. He's lucky enough to make a few good friends. They fly off to other worlds to look for their golden opportunity. The characters are well developed and the other worlds are thoughtfully described. I love to hear about other worlds and "aliens" so this book was right up my alley. I think anyone looking for a great space opera adventure would love "The Backworlds".
