Book Review: Lost Solace by Karl Drinkwater


Publishing Date: October 2017

Publisher: BooksGoSocial

ISBN: 9781911278122

Genre: SciFi

Rating: 3.9/5

Publisher’s Description: 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.

Review: This received good reviews across the board except for one asshat that does not like anything with the military in it. Forget the things that matter like character development, story line etc.

This was epic SciFi at its best with some really creepy shjt underlying the surface. Take Alien and make a horror menagerie out of it and you will get the sense of a place you never want to be. Thankfully the story does not reside solely in the SciFi horror genre but embraces grand world building and believable technology.

A fun read. Get it!
