As this is a novella, I managed to read the whole story in an afternoon. What bothers me is, after finishing it, my reaction was:- Oh!

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.

Starship Winter is set a couple of years after the events of Starship Fall, and once again we're back in Magenta Bay, on the Planet of Chalcedony, with David Conway and his friends: Matt, Maddie, Hawk, and Kee. Winter is a relatively short novella, focusing again on the events that befall the small group of friends we have followed through the previous novellas, with David Conway the medium through which we experience this tale.

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.

I find it hard to fault anything Eric Brown writes because he makes it look so easy. His stories are all about ordinary people in extraordinary environments dealing with love, loss and human frailty. I have read all the 'starship' novellas so far and look forward to the fourth. If you like this then read 'Kethani', another Eric Brown book about a group of friends dealing with interesting times.
