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.

3.0 su 5 stelle The story is ho-hum but the bio-diversity of the Backworlds is more interesting 24 luglio 2015
Di Catherine Mackay - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This was an ok read, but I have to be honest, I felt somewhat underwhelmed especially since it had an interesting premise. This is the story of Craze, a young man given the heave-ho by his Dad and told to make his fortune. He leaves his home planet under a cloud - the Elders having labeled him a leecher. Craze gets his back up because as far as he is concerned he isn't a leecher and he vows to get revenge on the Elders and the father who has banished him. From that point on the story grinds slowly onwards and I felt boredom set in well before the half-way point. I did not feel invested in the story of the main character who I felt was a dope, particularly since he hooks up with some unsavoury characters whom he knows are probably playing him, but still goes ahead anyway. I'm afraid I like my main characters to have some intelligence, strengths and weaknesses - Craze was just too dumb and lacking any vibrancy. All in all this book just wasn't my cup of tea, despite the fact the author's writing is good and she has written in a setting that is interesting - the bio-diversity of the backworlds is more interesting that the character's story.

4.0 su 5 stelle first one ok, second one, not so much 18 maggio 2014
Di Kindle Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

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?

5.0 su 5 stelle Worth the wait 4 febbraio 2016

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.

5.0 su 5 stelle Second read...still love it 15 giugno 2016

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".

4.0 su 5 stelle What an amazing galactic civilisation... 14 ottobre 2014
Di Michelle Wallace - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is my first sci-fi read and...wow! I must say that I'm impressed.

This novella-length prequel made for quick reading, introducing an amazing galactic civilisation, a rich universe (it had my imagination running riot...) filled with a host of places (what great names such as Mortua, Wism, Danysovia...) and a variety of interesting and vividly-portrayed, colourful bio-engineered beings from old "fabled earth" like the Verkinn, Jix, and the aviarmen, all with their own distinct set of physical/character traits.

I really liked the main character Craze, whose main goal is to own his own bar, and to have one up on his father, Bast, who has cut him off from family and friends and run him out of town. He is a roguish type of character, but still appealing, strong and resilient when needs be, yet also naive at the same time.

I'm looking forward to reading part two of this story.
