Happy National Book Lovers Day, everyone!
It’s no secret that I love books and that I’ve been getting more into sci-fi and space stories.
If you’re looking for a sci-fi novella set in space, I’ve got you covered.
The Stellar Snow Job follows Eddie, a pilot of her spaceship called the Colibri, and Richard, a private investigator, as they start a new job. It also follows Alannah, a travel writer.
I loved the characters, and though the story had its darker moments, this is a fun, adventurous, and humorous story.
In between the POVs of Eddie, Richard, and Alannah, we also have snippets from Alannah’s travel writing. I loved these sections; I felt like they solidified the world even more and added commentary on humanity, a theme that was woven throughout the story.
I was so impressed by the worldbuilding. In 158 pages, I felt like I knew the world better than some full-fledged novels I’ve read. I enjoyed getting to know the characters, especially Eddie, and there’s also queer rep and rep of an auditory processing disorder.
Thank you so much to Marie Howalt for sending me an e-ARC in exchange for a review.
Look out for The Stellar Snow Job, out on August 27th 2022!
VERDICT: 5 ⭐s
