Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

Nothing sane travels the starway. Today it brings disaster.

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

Revenge is on Craze’s mind. He chews on it every day along with the relentless dust on Pardeep Station. He dreams of grander wealth, enough to make his father choke.

That’s the dream consuming him when the interstellar portal opens, spitting out a ship that should no longer exist. A battleship spoiling for a fight. Yet the war with the Foreworlds ended two generations ago.

One wrong move and the shaky truce will end. So will Craze and his friends.

L'autore

M. Pax is author of the sci-fi series, The Backworlds, and the new adult science fiction fantasy Hetty Locklear series. 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 now 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. Want to connect? www.mpaxauthor.com

4.0 su 5 stelle Another imaginative tale from MPax 10 ottobre 2012
Di Doug Bittinger - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Stopover at the Backworlds' Edge is the second book in Mary Pax's Backworlds series about bio-engineered human life forms that were created to be able to thrive in the harsh environments of planets that are not exactly, "Earth Normal".

In this tale we find Craze and his new-found friends from the first book encamped at Pardeep Station, a sort of rest stop along the galactic interstate system, except Pardeep is out in the sticks, galactically speaking, and not an especially inviting place to go.

Craze has established his own tavern, serving the occasional starship that arrives at Pardeep. An old military ship arrives and discharges a form of engineered human life that was thought to be extinct - and her army of shadows. She brings news that the small group of friends has a traitor among them and that traitor has brought an old enemy bent on recovering a secret weapon stashed there long ago. With the arrival of this ship the life of everyone on Pardeep Station is now at risk.

This tale continues the tradition started in the first book of incorporating chocolate as a key element in the story. Stopover also has a love-interest for Craze, but again it's a rather quirky situation. Poor Craze - will he ever find a stable relationship?

As we have come to expect from M.Pax, this book is not only quite imaginative, but also expertly written and edited. The story steps along at a sprightly pace and holds the readers interest well. The characters are well developed and we are pulled into their amazing situations.

The only negative reaction is the rather frequent use of the word "shit". Most readers will likely not be bothered by this at all, but this reviewer's puritanical sensibilities reacted badly to it. Not badly enough to cause this book to be laid aside - as he has been known to do with weaker stories - but it did detract some from the enjoyment of it.

Another excellent story has emerged from the mind of M.Pax, employing elements of mystery, action adventure, and romance all rolled into a solid science fiction wrapper.

Thank you, M. Pax, for part two of the Backworlds adventure. Sci fi/space opera isn't my preferred reading genre, but I'll always make an exception for M. Pax's great stories. The author makes it easy to see, feel, and hear the myriad of interesting and entertaining characters, old and new, as they each face the next lot of obstacles, personal and collective, on Pardeep Station.
Craze is a character who stays with you long after the story is over, but I still don't know exactly what he looks like. It doesn't matter. I only want to know if he'll ever find his 'fortune' of chips, not to mention true love.
I'm looking forward to part 3.
M. Pax writes so well, she draws the unsuspecting, if not skeptical, reader in quickly and makes it difficult to put the book down voluntarily.
Stopover at the Backworlds' Edge is a wonderful entertaining read, easy to pick up where part 1 ended. Well done, M.

5.0 su 5 stelle 5-star satisfaction: One of my new favorites. 8 dicembre 2012
Di Mark Clay Grove - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

The second book in the Backworlds series, this one is just as satisfying as the first book and I look forward to the scheduled third book. Ms. Pax please do not stop at a trilogy. These characters, the subtle use of the language they speak, the dusty world on which they barely survive - all should be a beginning of a Star Trek-length series that lasts for the remainder of your writing career. Fresh world-building, exciting plot, enduring saga, endearing characters, as fine a story as the magnificent Nathan Lowell's the Golden Age of the Solar Clipper series. Ms. Pax, I want more and I want it as fast as possible. All thumbs up. Thank you.

3.0 su 5 stelle An OK book 31 agosto 2015
Di Lit Teacher - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Some good characterization here, but what I found somewhat annoying is that the book is so much a sequel and too obviously a lead-in for the next one. It's a trend, I understand, but I am not always willing to commit to a series and wait for the next (a la Game of Thrones) or read several segments which could easily be distilled for a better reading experience. Not the author's fault entirely since it's a marketing push.

But some of the action here could have been tightened. I had more difficulty getting into the flow of the story than the earlier book. The central character is consistent but not always with others.

Are you familiar with the "sophomore slump?" That's when a ballplayer plays like a phenom his first season, makes the cover of "Sports Illustrated" as rookie of the year, and then his second season, all the poor slob can do is set records for most errors and strike-outs. The same sort of thing can happen to a writer, too. Sometimes, a writer knocks it out of the ballpark with the first book in a series, only to fall flat on his face with the second one: a la sophomore slump, the second book... stinks.

Let me tell you just a little about THIS Book Two:

Craze doesn't know who to trust, but who could blame him? After all, the female he was planning to marry betrayed him, and even worse, so did his own father. It's their fault he got exiled. Because of their betrayal, he's still trying to eke out a living way out in the boondocks, in the dangerous badlands of outer space known as the Backworlds. He and his friends, a handful of bizarre beings, are now living and working on a dust-choked waystation, where they hope to find peace and make their fortune. But that isn't to be, because... one of them is a snitch.

Yep, it's happened to him again. Somebody betrayed them. Somebody gave away their location to a gang of sadistic soldiers, and now they're all in danger. Can Craze and his friends... and the snitch... outsmart the rogue soldiers from the Foreworld, or are they all doomed to die in the godforsaken dust?

Remember that sophomore slump? Well, Pax doesn't have anything to worry about. If she were a ballplayer, her face would be smiling from that magazine cover again. I enjoyed this second book of the series just as much as the first. Matter of fact, just because this author avoided the dreaded sophomore slump, I'd give this book 4 1/2 stars. Something tells me she has a lot more good seasons in her.
