[ Pdf The Long Way Home (Sequoyah, #1) · harlequin-nocturne PDF ] by Sabrina Chase · DNF PG 19Why Because I had no business reading it in the first place I mean, this is the kind of book I d usually just ignore but for some reason some time back, I bought it If I buy the book, I always at least try to read it I mean, I spent money on it, so I should at least give it a shot If I hadn t, I d still have this book sitting on my kindle five years from now always wondering what caused me to buy it I really don t know Anyway, the book is, quite simply, not for me The writing is too something Wordy, maybe Distancing is another choice, because I feel nothing but mild frustration towards these main characters.
Wow, a great first novel Wonderful pacing and characters, good hard sci fi world building, just enough complexity in plotting to be compelling.
Be warned, this book is really the first half of at least two books in the series.
Very good stuff here And, WOW, Kudos for self publishing WELL DONE When I finished this book, I screamed OUT LOUD This is why I have this shelved under wtf ending My husband looked over and said books are supposed to be private ok because I was apoplectic This was last night So The thing is, I love this book The bad thing is the ending is just a punch in the gut in that while it isn t technically a cliff hangar it just.

before it is supposed to be ending.
I still love this book however Moira Cameron is the only survivor from her ship Bon Accord Being the pilot she was burdened by her commander and lover to return back to Earth with information about their discovery, meanwhile her crew died so that she may do this Obviously this information is terribly important that her entire crew would sacrifice their lives so she c The scope of this book is magnificent From the frontlines of a war in space to the backwater planets on the Fringe, this book has a little bit of everything.
Mercenaries, Fleet military, pirates, and pioneers The cast of characters are vast, varied and colorful The landscape is just as rich From planetside to ship life, you get a taste of everything All without missing a beat.
The character development is phenomenal Moire is vulnerable in her pain at being stranded 80 years from her time Yet she shows a strength that is admirable Her resourcefulness causes even respect.
I really felt her loneliness at being the only survivor from her crew and her determination to complete her mission I also felt her desperation as she felt the odds weigh against her as she realized how unlikely it would be for her to succeed against the giant corporation Toren with all its resources You c Sometimes my subscription to Bookbub really, really pays off The Long Way Home is a fantastic SF Space Opera adventure tale Chase takes the concept of in medias res and RUNS with it the preview on dropped me right into the middle of a battle, and dropped just enough hints about protagonist Moire Cameron s mysterious secret to reel me in By the time I reached the end of the sample chapters, I was thoroughly invested.
It doesn t end there Chase is completely unafraid to skip big chunks of time and drop you right into something else exciting It s almost never disorienting, and a few shared threads Toren, Sequoyah, Alan keep it from feeling too episodic And the technique allows Chase to cover a lot of time and a lot of space, giv
Very good I liked Moira I hope she fulfills her mission A very strong 4 stars This was an interesting variant on the wise old pilot from the past scifi story The characters and the story structure were both very solid Few data dumps, so the galaxy building was learn as you go, which was also well done.
I ll read the next one, and I anticipate that it will be even better.
Excellent science fiction Good characterizations for the most part too I really cared about some of the characters First in a trilogy series I ll be looking for the sequels.
