A good read, though not one of his best.
on 14 March 2014
As I've noted before, I'm a fan of James S.A. Corey and his Expanse series. This was the first short I read and although I was happy to revisit that universe, I found that the situation of the main character was one I couldn't quite get engaged with for some reason.
There was quite a bit going on 'in the background' of this short which I would have loved to learn more about, but I suspect that was the intention of the author in this case. Having said that, about half way though I began to warm to the main character and so I felt that it definitely deserves 4 stars because it's genuinely a good short story in a really beautifully put-together universe written by an author who created great characters. I just don't feel it was one of his best.
