The Superlative Stream
The Darktrench Saga, Book 2
By: Kerry Nietz
What: SandFly and HardCandy encounter a mysterious planet. Could it hold the answers to the Superlative Stream and A-not-A-cubed?
Recommended to those who like: Sci-fi, Christian, Sarcasm/wit, and have read book 1.
I finally got back around to this series! SandFly’s wit was just what I needed.
I would strongly recommend reading A Star Curiously Singing prior to picking up this book. However, if it’s been a while since you’ve read the first book, don’t be afraid to jump right into this one. Mr. Nietz does a good job catching you back up on what's happened previously.
SandFly and HardCandy finally reach the Betelgeuse system, only to find a mysterious planet and no sign of the Superlative Stream. Are the planet’s inhabitants the key to finding A~A^3 or is there something darker afoot? And what connects the two debuggers’ pasts?
This is an excellent follow-up to A Star Curiously Singing. The same humor mixed wonderfully with the darker themes of the book for a well-balanced read. I loved getting to learn more about HardCandy. She's quickly becoming a favorite character. The Christian theme is strong again, but it’s well executed.
I’ll definitely be picking up Freeheads when I get some down time.
Have you read any good sci-fi lately?
Please note that I will likely be slow to respond to comments this weekend.
