Bookshelf Tour #25 // Revenger by Alastair Reynolds

The galaxy has seen great empires rise and fall. Planets have shattered and been remade. Amongst the ruins of alien civilizations, building our own from the rubble, humanity still thrives.
And there are vast fortunes to be made, if you know where to find them.
Captain Rackamore and his crew do. It’s their business to find the tiny, enigmatic worlds which have been hidden away, booby-trapped, surrounded by layers of protection–and to crack them open for the ancient relics and barely-remembered technologies inside. But while they ply their risky trade with integrity, not everyone is so scrupulous.
Adrana and Fura Ness are the newest members of Rackamore’s crew, signed on to save their family from bankruptcy. Only Rackamore has enemies, and there might be more waiting for them in space than adventure and fortune: the fabled and feared Bosa Sennen in particular.
Revenger is a science fiction adventure story set in the rubble of our solar system in the dark, distant future–a tale of space pirates, buried treasure, and phantom weapons, of unspeakable hazards and single-minded heroism and of vengeance…

When I saw this book in Waterstones after the last book club meeting I knew I had to get it. I saw this book last year when I was at the Frankfurt Book Fair. Funny enough I even tweeted a picture of it and captioned it with a “This looks like a book I’m going to like”.

I have to admit I wasn’t thinking about Revenger at all and wouldn’t have gotten it if I hadn’t seen it in the shop, but here we are and thankfully Waterstones thought this book was good enough to put it in a popular spot.

I didn’t even read the synopsis of the book I just grabbed it and went to the tills with it. But reading it now I’m really excited to actually get to it.

Have you read Revenger? What are your thoughts? Or are you planning to read it? Advertisements Teilen mit:
