Review: I really liked this short story. A words that comes to mind to describe it is “cute”, which I realise can be a loaded word, but this story is cute in a very good way.
It’s mostly and exposition of teenage angst, but it’s very well done teenage angst, with enough action and personal drama interspersed to make it quite an entertaining read. It’s a little on the short side, even for a short story, but the length seems about exactly right to tell this nugget of a story.
Anyway, the only way anyone is going to, or should, read this is if they have already read the first couple of books in the Expanse Series, and if they have, reading this story as part of the series is a bit of a no-brainer. It expands on the universe nicely, and gives a bit more colour to the already extremely colourful universe that is The Expanse.
