Notes: Thanks very much to the publisher for sending me an advanced copy!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! While it alluded to some earlier series that I hadn’t read at all (the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5) this was still an overall fun, quick, and lovely atmospheric and futuristic gem of a book. Sherlock was an excellent character, despite being a bloodhound, and I found myself greatly interested in the storyline, characters, and how it turns out in the end. The dark sense of humor throughout the book was excellently woven into the plot, and made me laugh in delight several times. I am now a fan of the author, and definitely look forward to investing into the rest of this series.

A new noir science fiction novel from a master of science fiction set in the Eight Worlds series about a detective on the hunt for biohackers who have created a dangerous new disease.

-As read on Goodreads

I really enjoyed this new start to a series that is as promising as it looks, and am invested in reading the rest of the series as it comes out. I hope to find book two soon, and snag it either as an arc or a book purchased from the store, either way. Sherlock the dog was my favorite character of all, I believe, though I really did enjoy Chris, as well as his mother who liked to work with rare and extinct animals.

I also think that the entire series-both its predecessor series and this new series, ought to be turned into a Netflix show. It could quite possibly give The Expanse a run for its money, though its definitely different than that of the Expanse, it does show some of the same kind of world-building vibes at times.

Until next time,
