I’m absolutely thrilled to have been asked to be on this blog tour. Indie authors are a big deal for me so when Anne asked I jumped at the chance. Thank you.
Sometimes spaceships disappear with everyone on board – the Lost Ships. But sometimes they come back, strangely altered, derelict, and rumoured to be full of horrors.
Opal is on a mission. She’s been seeking something her whole life. Something she is willing to die for. And she thinks it might be on a Lost Ship.
Opal has stolen Clarissa, an experimental AI-controlled spaceship, from the military. Together they have tracked down a Lost Ship, in a lonely nebula far from colonised space.
The Lost Ship is falling into the gravity well of a neutron star, and will soon be truly lost … forever. Legends say the ships harbour death, but there’s no time for indecision.
Opal gears up to board it. She’s just one woman, entering an alien and lethal environment. But perhaps with the aid of Clarissa’s intelligence – and an armoured spacesuit – Opal may stand a chance.
My Review ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 stars
Sci-fi with a dash of Horror.
A really interesting dynamic. I haven’t read sci-fi before but i am quite familiar with the genre and its one i like quite a bit. I always enjoy a book that makes me think and sends my imagination wild. The whole concept of just one main character and an A.I was very interesting, plausible and well executed. I loved their relationship, the dialogue between them was sparky, intelligent, witty and felt very much like a real friendship. I was a little worried the more technical aspects would throw me but they were very well though out and explained without being overly complicated. I did find some of the scenes a little long winded but that was only because i was so eager to find out what was going to happen next. Over all this book is an engaging, full throttle and intelligent read.
