"There are only three real powers in the Spiral: the corporate power of the Trust versus the Union's labor's leverage. Between them the Guild tries to keep everyone's hands above the table. It ain't easy. Branded a Guild deserter, Jal "accidentally" lands a ride on a Guild ship. Helmed by an AI, with a ship's engineer/medic who doesn't see much of a difference between the two jobs, and a "don't make me shoot you" XO, the Guild crew of the Ambit is a little . . . different. They're also in over their heads. Responding to a distress call from an abandoned planet, they find a mass grave, and a live programmer who knows how it happened. The Trust has plans. This isn't the first dead planet, and it's not going to be the last. Unless the crew of the Ambit can stop it."--… (mais)

A detailed science fiction adventure about a wandering band of people who are trying to stave off disasters that could cause the death of millions. The pluses for the book is that it seems self contained not obviously angling to be a part of a series (which it is). Also, there are both men and women in the group and we are not sidetracked by burgeoning love affairs.. A negative that there are many terms and technology of the future that are not fully defined. Overall, it is a nice first novel. ( )

I was delighted to receive Cascade Failure with the puzzling cover. It doesn't hint at what the story is about. Chaotic building in the front and I thought it dealt with building failures.
As the reader, I need to respond to a distress call from another planet. I don't do science fiction so this book will go to a lucky person at Friends of the Library. ( )

Ugh. I made it through this one, but it was a slog. I'm sorry to slam a debut that has so many great elements -- found family, space adventure, interesting worlds (kind of) -- but it falls into the category of there's no there there for me. The characters are too stereotypical, the plotline is not surprising, the relationship drama is so much fluff, and I just wanted it to be over. I'm glad other people are enjoying it, but it missed in every category for me.

Pros: fun and interesting characters, tight plot, some thought provoking moments, good fight scenes

Cons:

The characters are so much fun. They’re all neurotic in complementary ways. Surly and snipey at times, talkative and playful at others. Eoan’s curiosity about everything was a real joy. Despite their arguments it’s clear Nash and Saint are a tight knit crew. Seeing Jal and Anke dropped into the crew’s dynamic made for some great interactions.

The plot is tight with enough down time to get to know all of the characters between chase scenes and fights. There are some real tense moments.

The politics of this future are suitably complex without taking over the story. There are a few decent questions about morality and whether it’s better to focus on the needs of society at large vs saving your personal friends and family. And who should make the necessary sacrifices.

It’s a book about the choices we make and how we deal with the consequences of the bad decisions of our past. Of working as a team to complete a goal. Of betrayal and redemption.

It’s a delightful story that, though it dealt with heavy issues at times, left me feeling hopeful about the future.

Review time! Cascade Failure, by @lmsagas, is one of the best things I've read in the last few years. This book has absolutely destroyed me in the best possible way. Scifi action? Check! Misfit found family? Check! Witty banter? Check! I laughed, I cheered, I sobbed so hard I nearly vomited... It's like if Becky Chambers wrote Firefly, but amped everything up times 100. More tension! More tragic back stories! More corporate greed! Basically, this book is everything I've ever wanted and more besides. I can't remember the last time I fell so damn hard for a book (25 floors hard). It's a queer chaos goblin dream, and I insist you all read it.

Thanks to Netgalley for the digital ARC. ( )
