Top critical review
A good first season
Reviewed in Australia on 29 September 2021
This book is best described as season one of some unmade serial. Its lots of smaller loosely linked stories that ultimately ends in a promise of more to come next season. There is no major arc, no 3 act structure. One episode is about acquiring space hippies, another is about liberating some stolen supplies to help pay his mounting fuel bills.
The next book may focus up now the main has space figured out. Or it may continue being written to appeal to Amazon prime showrunners... it probably wouldn't do badly as a TV series, but books shouldn't be written that way
