One day space travel might be as simple as guiding a stranger across the plains in the days of wagon trains. Whole planets might guard themselves with secret faith. And a girl called Raven might agree to transport a scientist away from the land where an Oracle dwells. There’s a wonderful robot, the glorious blackness of space, and a pleasingly authentic feel to Raven’s spaceship. But Raven’s been keeping her heart in check and friend Ben has longed for a plan to set her free. Revelations, spiritual, natural and informational, come with perfect timing in Laura Eno’s short novella. New characters spring to life on the page. Action, adventure, suspicion, excitement and more make this look like the start of a series well worth following, with hints of Firefly in its distant future and dreams. Highly recommended.
Disclosure: I was lucky enough to find a free copy; sadly it took me a while to find free time to read it.
