I have a feature that I do every Sunday here on the blog called Suspense Sunday, where I feature a Suspense title from my library. To kick off what I hope will be an ongoing feature called Sci-fi Saturday, I’d like to spotlight one of my fave (so far) sci-fi titles and offer a giveaway!
I’m relatively new to sci-fi, and I’m constantly discovering new titles! I’m hoping to enlist my husband, who is my resident sci-fi expert, in not only recommending titles, but also providing suggestions for Sci-fi Saturday!
Publisher: Penguin (Feb. 2008)
Synopsis: As the carrier of a rare gene, Sirantha Jax has the ability to jump ships through grimspace-a talent which makes her a highly prized navigator for the Corp. Then a crash landing kills everyone on board, leaving Jax in a jail cell with no memory of the crash. But her fun’s not over. A group of rogue fighters frees her…for a price: her help in overthrowing the established order.
I never reviewed this for the site because I read it quite some time before I started the blog, but I can definitely say it was the book that opened the sci-fi door for me. It’s not hard sci-fi, so it’s a great book for newbies, and Sirantha Jax is one of my favorite characters to come along in quite awhile! Clever dialogue, romance, and wonderful characterizations set this series apart! VERY highly recommended!
