    If you re into stuff like this, you can read the full review.Solid YA SF Shadow Captain by Alastair ReynoldsI find it strange that the debate whether YA is any good is so often cast in either or terms I read all kinds of things newspapers, YA, folk tales of all kinds, romance, crime, SF, fantasy, nature writing, history,

    4.5 starsI enjoyed this second installment eventhan Revenger I know Revenger received mixed reviews from Reynolds fans who I guess didn t get what they expected, but really, I think he wrote a great story, and Shadow Captain is a fine continuation The writing continues to reflect Reynolds densely competent style, with both te

    The second Revenger book continues on with a pretty traditional Space Opera tale Where the first began with revenge on the mind, the second focuses muchon financial survival, salvage, and after a particularly awesome Reynolds homage to Reynolds sentient skull candy partnership with suits becoming a shambling hoard of zombies, a d

    Ah I m beginning to see the familiar Al Reynolds yet again He doesn t linger much in the YA field, despite the Ness sisters age The story picks up from the end of the first volume,Revenger , and builds strongly However, I m surprised at myself how did I miss the fact that Revenger series is going to be a trilogy The good thing is tha

    4.5 stars The only reason I didn t give it 5 stars because the pacing was a little slow at times especially when the focus was on Adrana and Fura s relationship and all of their secrets It was also hard to believe that Adrana gave in so easily to partnering with Fura since in the beginning she was so adamant that she didn t want anything to do with her

I m Al, now a Goodreads author I used to be a space scientist, and now I m a writer, although for a time the two careers ran in parallel I started off publishing short stories in the British SF magazine Interzone in the early 90s, then eventually branched into novels I write about a novel a year and try to write a few short stories as well Some of my books and stories are set in a consistent future named after Revelation Space, the first novel, but I ve done a lot of other things as well and I like to keep things fresh between books I was born in Wales, but raised in Cornwall, and then spent time in the north of England and Scotland I moved to the Netherlands to continue my science career and stayed there for a very long time, before eventually returning to Wales.In my spare time I am a very keen runner, and I also enjoying hill walking, birdwatching, horse riding, guitar and model making I also dabble with paints now and then I met my wife in the Netherlands through a mutual interest in climbing and we married back in Wales We live surrounded by hills, woods and wildlife, and not too much excitement.
