Rosemary Harper doesn't expect much when she joins the crew of the aging Wayfarer. While the patched-up ship has seen better days, it offers her a bed, a chance to explore the far-off corners of the galaxy, and most importantly, some distance from her past. An introspective young woman, she's never met anyone remotely like the ship's diverse crew, including Sissix, the exotic reptilian pilot, chatty engineers Kizzy and Jenks, who keep the ship running, and Ashby, their noble captain. Life aboard the Wayfarer is chaotic and crazy-exactly what Rosemary wants. It's also about to get extremely dangerous when the crew is offered the job of a lifetime. Tunneling wormholes through space to a distant planet is definitely lucrative and will keep them comfortable for years. But risking her life wasn't part of the plan. In the far reaches of deep space, the tiny Wayfarer crew will confront a host of unexpected mishaps and thrilling adventures that force them to depend on each other. To survive, Rosemary's got to learn how to rely on this assortment of oddballs-an experience that teaches her about love and trust, and that having a family isn't necessarily the worst thing in the universe.… (més)

    Ancillary Justice de Ann Leckie (souloftherose)
    souloftherose: Both are optimistic space operas that focus on the characters and their relationships.
  2. 10
    The Empress of Salt and Fortune de Nghi Vo (andreas.wpv)
    andreas.wpv: The book is really different in story and in setting. Empress is high fantasy - but barely visible, and tells a story of a story being collected from the maidservant of an empress. While the story is so different, the mood and feel of the story, and the telling of the story are similar - a tender loving observation of human beings living their lives together in non-ordinary circumstances. I have not read the next books of the 'empress' - so not sure this holds, but to me, they are so similar.… (més)

When Rosemary joins the crew of the Wayfarer she finds the one thing she needs but had no hope of finding — a family. Even though they are all different species, they have made a true home on their ship. It is the job of a lifetime that puts them to the test. Love the characters and the universe Becky has created.

As William Gibson said, science fiction is about the present not the future, and we can see our current cultural concerns playing out in this far-future setting. On one hand it's Firefly or Star Wars – spaceship adventures across the galaxy with a motley crew of humans and aliens. On the other it's very much through the lens of contemporary feminist SF, ticking the boxes of trans, pronouns, disability, same-sex couples (and inter-species!), found families, negotiation over conflict… all refreshingly different from the traditional space opera, but also distinctively of the moment. Not really my style of SF but an entertaining adventure, especially for teen readers. ( )

I don't know how I feel about this story. It's a comfort read for sure but the 'lessons' you could find in the story would have more of an impact when I was younger.

It felt like peeking in someone's life but even though some serious things happened I never felt the deep emotions that I would have if it would happen to me. But I'm not really sure why I would want that?

It feels like a simple story but the amount of details that you can find in it is astounding if you think about it.

It's been a long time that I've been so indecisive about a rating.

Absolutely wonderful chararacter-driven science fiction novel. Where most science fiction stories focus on key plot set pieces to drive tension and momentum, this book focuses on character's experiences and growth. ( )

Rosemary Harper doesn't expect much when she joins the crew of the aging Wayfarer. While the patched-up ship has seen better days, it offers her a bed, a chance to explore the far-off corners of the galaxy, and most importantly, some distance from her past. An introspective young woman, she's never met anyone remotely like the ship's diverse crew, including Sissix, the exotic reptilian pilot, chatty engineers Kizzy and Jenks, who keep the ship running, and Ashby, their noble captain. Life aboard the Wayfarer is chaotic and crazy-exactly what Rosemary wants. It's also about to get extremely dangerous when the crew is offered the job of a lifetime. Tunneling wormholes through space to a distant planet is definitely lucrative and will keep them comfortable for years. But risking her life wasn't part of the plan. In the far reaches of deep space, the tiny Wayfarer crew will confront a host of unexpected mishaps and thrilling adventures that force them to depend on each other. To survive, Rosemary's got to learn how to rely on this assortment of oddballs-an experience that teaches her about love and trust, and that having a family isn't necessarily the worst thing in the universe.
