APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Bursting at the seams with mean pirates, weird aliens, and spaceships that sail, the final book in Alastair Reynolds’ hugely entertaining Revenger trilogy pulls us deeper into a strange and beautifully crafted universe. Two fearless young sisters have assumed control of a powerful spaceship, but it seems they’ve made some deadly enemies along the way. Their maverick crew will need all the cunning in the galaxy to survive when they’re chased by a fleet commanded by a complete psychopath. We loved Bone Silence for its imaginative blend of hard science fiction and operatic space fantasy—as well as its quirky use of totally unexpected items, from old-fashioned telephones to space radios made out of alien skulls. This epic story works as a stand-alone adventure, but trust us, you’ll want to read the first two in the series, Revenger and Shadow Captain, as soon as you’re done. We wish we could stay forever inside Reynolds’ strange, exotic world...even with its creepy space-Frankenstein henchmen.
Very much juvenile fiction. Seemed neither science nor fantasy. Having just come off a binge read of a Hamilton series this is as, in contrast, quite disappointing.
