10 JanMirror Space 1

So hello, 2012! Nothing like starting off the New Year with a bang. And my first book of the year is definitely a bang!

Mirror SpaceMirror Space by Marianne de Pierres is the third book in the Sentients of Orion series.

After her world was overrun by aliens that have destroyed any humanoid in their path, Baronessa Mira Fedor has fled to plead for help from OLOSS – the Orion League of Sentient Species. Along the way she has met up with mercenaries, an intellectual, a hero of the Stain Wars, a God discoverer – just to name a few. Their stories weave together as they cross paths and separate, and yet they are still linked as the story unfolds. At the end of the second book Mira has been kidnapped, so book three begins with the characters figuring out why.

When I first started reading this series, I had a hard time getting into it. Now I’m on book three, I can hardly put this book down! Each chapter is written from a different character’s point of view. I get so into the story, that when one of the chapter’s end I can feel myself dying to get through until that character’s next chapter. But then, I get caught up in the next chapter and the cycle repeats. As the reader you just can’t tear yourself away from the story she’s constructed.

I like the fact that this book is gritty – the author isn’t afraid to gross you out, and she doesn’t sanitize things like many stories tend to. The characters feel more like everyday people instead of the almost too perfect characters often found in science fiction.

I’m really looking forward to book four in the series. So much so, that when it comes in at work it’s going to jump the line in my TBR pile :-)

Five stars!
