Review: A Light In The Dark



A Book at the Bottom of your To Be Read Pile: A Light In The Dark by Nathan Lowell



When Captain Bjorn Gunderson docks with what he thinks is routine cargo, he embarks on an unexpected voyage. On a milk run from Welliver to Breakall, a tiny rock punctures his ship and leaves the crew adrift twenty-thousand years from home. With food, water, and air running out, a desperate crewman takes a reckless gamble, risking his life in a daring bid to find safety. What he finds instead puts them all at risk.



I’m not sure if this qualifies for “the bottom” of my to read pile. But I’ve had it for a long time, really wanted to read it, and something else always was there to take priority. But it was worth it. I very much missed Nathan’s voice narrating this world. I’ve listened to all of the other stories in this world and it definitely brings something special. It is a great look at another part of the Solar Clipper world, one we haven’t seen yet. I enjoyed the characters quite a bit, though due to the short length, I didn’t get to understand them as much as I’d have liked. As always, the writing was top notch and the tone and pace were perfect.
