A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe (The Salvagers #1) Reviews
Thoroughly enjoyed this one!
I really enjoyed this book, I didn't really know what to expect going in but it wasn't this. The magic system used is fascinating and I hope the next book explores it a little further, but it's the interactions of the crew which I really loved, and I laughed and cried along with them.
Bring on book two 😀
Utterly magnificent! I love how Alex manages to mix magic and sci-fi with such dexterity and pulls together a tightly woven plot, compelling characters with well crafted character arcs each and a very fast paced action packed story with such finesse.
There were times when I exclaimed out loud "Nilah noooooooooooooooooooo!!!" or "Nilah, what the fuck", I laughed at Boots and Cordell's banter, admired Orna's strength and resilience and loved gentle Malik, Aisha and Didier.
The plot reveal is quite ...more
I normally don't like science fiction because the author goes into too much detail about the setting. The way all of the details are woven into this make it exciting and easy to follow. The characters are funny, sarcastic and believable. I can't wait for book 2.
This story is an interesting mix of magic and science fiction. I wasn't sure I was going to like the genre mashup but after a couple of chapters White's universe grew on me. Lots of action and plot twists. I enjoyed his use of two main characters instead of focusing on just one. Although there is a sequel in progress I felt like the story concluded to a reasonable ending. I'm looking forward to book #2.
Thank you to Orbit books for sending me this book free of charge for my honest review
"Furious and fun, the first book in this bold, new science fiction adventure series follows a ragtag group of adventurers as they try to find a legendary ship that just might be the key to clearing their name and saving the universe.

Here we have another of Orbit Publishing’s summer debuts, which they graciously sent me in exchange for an unbiased review. A Big Ship At The Edge Of The Universe, by Alex White, is the first book in his Salvagers series. I will tell you right off the bat that I think this is going to be one of the most divisive books I have read and a lot of people are going to love it and a lot of people are going to feel its not their t ...more
First off, I want to thank the publisher and the author for an ARC of A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe. Receiving this ARC, in no way, shape, or form, determined my overall opinions or review.
When I received this book in the mail a few weeks ago, I was already interested based off of the stunning design on the cover. It is absolutely breathtaking.
The second thing I noticed were the blurbs. Nicholas Eames, author of my #1 Read of 2017, Kings of the Wyld, has TWO blurbs. Yes, you read that r ...more
