Book Debate Book Reviews

Book Debate: Grimspace

Loads of glowing reviews around blogland have prompted us to pick Grimspace for our Book of the Month feature and do a joint review. But, in the process of reading it we realized that whilst Ana was having a good time, Thea wasn’t. Surprised that once again we were not able to reach a consensus over a book , we realized that it was a good opportunity for another feature instead.

Ladies and gentleman of the jury, The Book Smugglers present our second Book Debate with Thea on the attack and Ana on the defense.

Title: Grimspace

Author: Ann Aguirre

Genre: Sci-Fi

Stand alone/Series: Book one in the Jax series.

By all accounts, Sirantha Jax should have burned out years ago…
As the carrier of a rare gene, Jax has the ability to jump ships through grimspace—a talent which cuts into her life expectancy, but makes her a highly prized navigator for the Corp. But then the ship she’s navigating crash-lands, and she’s accused of killing everyone on board. It’s hard for Jax to defend herself: she has no memory of the crash.
Now imprisoned and the subject of a ruthless interrogation, Jax is on the verge of madness. Then a mysterious man breaks into her cell, offering her freedom—for a price. March needs Jax to help his small band of rogue fighters break the Corp monopoly on interstellar travel—and establish a new breed of jumper.
Jax is only good at one thing—grimspace—and it will eventually kill her. So she may as well have some fun in the meantime…

En garde!

    Hey, you changed your template (err yes, I’ve been reading via RSS for a while)!

    Grimspace is in my TBR pile, in fact I meant to read it a week ago, but have been sidetracked by various books. So I’ve only skimmed both your reviews but am planning to read this one soon – I’ve suspected my reading tastes tend to align more with Thea than Ana, so we shall see 🙂

    Hey li! You’re a big Sharon Shinn fan, right? She blurbed this book. I gotta admit I’m still scratching my head over it since I love Sharon Shinn’s work so much…

    Give it a go, can’t wait to see what you think! 🙂
