Teaser Tuesdays is a meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading - basically we tease with snippets from our current reads;taking care not to post spoilers. :) At the time of my post, MizB's Tuesday post isn't up yet, so I can't link directly to it like normal = tomorrow. :)
One of the books I'm currently reading is Chaos Space by the talented Marianne De Pierres. She writes in a few different genres - my favorite is her cyberpunk series Nylon Angel. Her SciFi is just as good.
from page 204;
'Help the dissident and I will instruct the Insignia to open it,'
Latourn's eyes widened. 'Capo said not to go with you...she said you were loco.'
Chaos Space can be a pretty involved read - there are so many different aspects. For instance, the ship they are trying to get on is a biozoon. A ship that is really a sentient being, that can accept modifications and enters into an agreement to provide space travel. The ship needs a pilot that it can speak mind to mind with, and can take interfacing with the ship's systems...the ship can also provide nourishment and protection to the pilot and copilot as well as to a lesser degree the passengers/crew. Very interesting concept. Not sure that I could find any random two sentence teasers that would do this book justice. But if you're a SciFi buff who loves intrigue and Machiavellan plots, this is a good series.
