The scene is really well set up and intriguing, so much so that I really couldn't put my Kindle down. Anyone familiar with Eric Brown's Starship series will instantly feel at home with the characters and general scenario.
What a shame then, that the climax is such an anticlimax. Without wanting to give the plot away, it really was a case of:- Oh!
Four stars because it is better than Starship Fall, but not as good as Summer.
As is Eric Brown's trademark, Starship Winter is easily readable, the prose flowing off the page with little effort. This makes the pages turn all too quickly for a story of its length and before long the end is drawing close. However, despite this - or perhaps because of it - Brown fills the text with vivid descriptions, planting the alien images in your mind without being overpowering. It's remarkable how easily he does this, and how well it ties into the story to pull off another emotional and fitting read.
While the story itself is not long, it does have a solid centre to it, and it also raises some interesting aspects about art, spirituality, and the interactions humans have with alien species. Darius Dortmund is perhaps central to this aspect, a human with empathetic and telepathic abilities with aliens and, to an extent, humans. His views and actions are strange and cold, but through these the story unfolds and revelations are made, and deeper truths uncovered.
Sometimes, when reading a novel, there is an aspect that hits home harder than anything else within. In Starship Winter it was the relationship that develops between David and Hannah.Read more ›
