Bone Silence (Revenger #3) by Alastair Reynolds

Two sisters ran away from home to join the crew of a spaceship. They took on pirates, faced down monsters and survived massacres . . . and now they’re in charge. Captaining a fearsome ship of their own, adventures are theirs for the taking. But Captain Bosa’s fearsome reputation still dogs their heels, and they’re about to discover that, out in space, no one forgives, and no one forgets . . .

How did I get the book? Received from publisher in exchange for an honest review

Genre: Science Fiction

Previously Reviewed:

Shadow Captain (Revenger #2)

Review: The point of view changes again in the third book – containing both sisters viewpoint rather than one or the other from the previous books. The books escalates in suddenly action packed stops involving bar brawls, super assassins, procurement of medicine, pirates, more pirates, bounty hunters and a questionable path of morality. Again, the universe continues to be interesting and unique, more questions raised at various parts than answered.

The second part pushes towards the bigger arc, the conspiracy at the heart of Quoins and personal the push to redemption and person happiness.

I’m really hoping to see more of this universe – So much has been alluded to we have no seen, I would love to see the lore expanded on more, how this universe came into being, the true nature of baubles, usage and contents and Ghosties.

I generally prefer more cerebral sci-fi but trilogy had an almost Treasure island in space meets Firefly feel and I thoroughly enjoyed overall. Give it a try!
