#5*Review Chasing Solace by Karl Drinkwater #SciFi #Series

After reading and thoroughly enjoying Helene by Karl Drinkwater I said that I’d like to read more books in this series and by this author. . . . . The author kindly offered to gift me copies of the two other books in the series. Last week I shared with you information about the first of these, Lost Solace . . . . today I’m doing the same for the second book in the series, Chasing Solace . . . .

My Review:

The author takes you straight back into the action in this fast paced science fiction series. Opal and Athene need to replenish their supplies before continuing their quest to locate and rescue Opal’s sister. However, they make unforgettable discoveries which impinge on the rest of their journey into the unknown. Can they really locate the Lost ship her sister was on? If they do, will she still be alive and what will have happened to her? This is a journey fraught with dangers, some known but many totally unknown. It is a journey driven by love, a huge learning experience and one which will change them forever and it really sounds like there will be more to come and I can’t wait to discover what happens next!

This is a brilliant sequel in this series, with the characters developing further, so many twist and turns it keeps you on the edge of your seat and turning those pages. I’m so glad I read Helene‘ and ‘Lost Solace‘ . . . . now I can’t wait to read more in this thrilling space adventure!

Many thanks to the author for gifting me a copy of this book. This is my honest review after being totally intrigued and fascinated by this book and the previous two I’ve read by him.

 

Synopsis:

The legendary Lost Ships exist, and they harbour nightmarish horrors. Opal knows. She barely survived her first encounter with one.

Despite escaping, she failed to find what she was looking for: her lost sister. Now Opal must board a second derelict Lost Ship to seek answers, and it’s even more monstrous, a sickening place of death and decay. To make things worse, the military government wants her, dead or alive. Considering their reputation, dead may be better.

To find her sister, Opal will risk everything: her life, her blood, her sanity. There’s always a price to pay. Armed with her wits, an experimental armoured suit, and an amazing AI companion, she might just stand a chance.

Author Bio –

Karl Drinkwater is originally from Manchester but lived in Wales for twenty years, and now calls Scotland his home. He’s a full-time author, edits fiction for other writers, and was a professional librarian for over twenty-five years. He has degrees in English, Classics, and Information Science.

He writes in multiple genres: his aim is always just to tell a good story. Among his books you’ll find elements of literary and contemporary fiction, gritty urban, horror, suspense, paranormal, thriller, sci-fi, romance, social commentary, and more. The end result is interesting and authentic characters, clever and compelling plots, and believable worlds.

When he isn’t writing he loves exercise, guitars, computer and board games, the natural environment, animals, social justice, cake, and zombies. Not necessarily in that order.
