Firefly lookalike, only the captain is much worse than Mal: similar rogue-ish attitude, but no care for his people underneath. Everybody is interesting but unpleasant. Did not finish – you got to have something to make me stick around. Doesn’t have to be sympathetic characters, but when it’s just dicks in a derivative steampunk world, I might just as well re-watch Firefly.
This book is part of the 2022 Backlog Incident.
