Book: The Scourge Between Stars
Author: Ness Brown
Thank you NetGalley and OrangeSky Audio for an advanced audio copy.
I love science fiction. So many books fail to capture my love for the genre, The Scourge Between Stars is not one of them.
This is a short book coming in under 200 pages so it’s a very quick read. With that said, for me, it started very slowly. It did not seem all that tense or interesting for about the first half of the book. That changed for the better and this was everything I wanted it to be.
It is hard to take a story like this and not compare it to Alien. Like Alien, we have a strong female lead, and a killing machine lose on a spaceship. There is also a life like android to help that comparison even more. This could have just been a copy of Alien and I would have loved it but it tried to be its own thing and it mostly succeeds.
I hope this becomes a series and I get to go back to space and see how this journey continues.
Final Score 4/5
