My Shattered Worlds pick for this week was The Space in Between by Jen Minkman. Now, I’ve read Jen’s work before so I knew I was going to be in safe hands. The Space in Between was fabulous. I am entirely in love with hero Hayko, and the technical stuff that only writers ought to notice was absolutely breath-taking. The plotting was so tight I am even more impressed than I was when I read Sound of Sirens.
And after that I decided to have a complete break. I love reading outside my usual genres for a bit of a change and this time around I picked Charlotte by Karen Aminadra. It’s set in the Pride and Prejudice universe, so if you’re the target market you’ll already realise it tells Charlotte Collins (nee Lucas) story. Now, if you’re anything like me, you wouldn’t think silly Mr Collins is going to offer very good character material to work with, but Charlotte was lovely: witty and humane and it even put me quite in charity with Mr Collins, who has a lovely zero to hero arc. Anne de Bourgh’s story is dealt with next and I am definitely going to make room for that.
Check back next week. I’m SO nearly at the end of my Shattered Worlds challenge. See what I can squeeze in before the collection vanishes forever!
