Ahoy there me mateys! I received this sci-fi eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. So here be me honest musings . . .
zero limit (Jeremy K. Brown)
Title: zero limit
Author: Jeremy K. Brown
Publisher: 47North (47North is the Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror imprint of Amazon Publishing, the full-service publishing arm of Amazon)
Publication Date: TODAY!! (paperback and e-book)
So this book was described as “Artemis meets Gravity in this gripping, adrenaline-fueled ride.” Nope, not for me. I actually tried to read this twice and gave up on it both times.
Now I have not seen the movie gravity so I can’t comment on that but I would consider this to be a bad version of Armageddon the movie where ye replace Bruce Willis with a not-quite-as-badass woman, have even cheesier dialogue, and no real tension.
As for artemis . . . umm no. Well both take place on the moon. That’s about all they have in common. Artemis made me feel like the author had been to the moon and experienced both its wonders and its problems. This novel’s moon seemed like a cardboard cutout of a Hollywood sound stage with all the cliché glory that entails. I did like the concept of a miserable moon-dust rampaged living space but this novel did not do it justice.
Add in really bad politics involving the middle east and an immigrant (moon-born) hating politician and it just added to the rip-off feeling. I wish I could have liked it but alas.
So lastly . . .
Thank you 47 North!
Goodreads has this to say about the novel:
Twelve billion metric tons of asteroid. One woman who can save Earth. Zero margin for error.
For war hero Caitlin Taggart, mining work on the Moon is dirty, low pay, and high risk. But no risk seems too extreme if it helps her return to Earth and the daughter she loves more than life itself. Offered a dangerous, long-shot chance to realize that dream, Caitlin will gamble with more than just her life.
By leading a ragtag crew of miners on a perilous assignment to harvest an asteroid, Caitlin could earn a small fortune. More importantly, it would give her clearance to return to Earth.
But when an unexpected disaster strikes the mission, Caitlin is plunged into a race to save not only herself, but every human being on Earth.
