The Dark Colony

Posted February 8, 2015

Now this is my sort of book – thrown into a strange environment (which in this case is a colony in space) and made to feel as if the writer is discussing an environment that’s as familiar as the village park. The writing is very matter-of-fact as it takes the reader on a tour of the premises. Led by the protagonist, the world is described to the reader through a series of events. Back story is brief and told through the voice of the narration, as for the grammar – well, I didn’t find a single typo in the first couple of chapters, which is really unusual for an independently published book.

This book is hard sci-fi, so it does contain a lot of detail, so if you’re looking for an easy read, this isn’t the book for you. That isn’t to say its hard to read because it’s not. I love books where the clues are laid down like breadcrumbs, ready for me to process and collate to make my own conclusions.
