Dark Matter

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch


Genre: Scifi/Fantasy

I can’t help thinking that we’re more than the sum total of our choices, that all the paths we might have taken factor somehow into the math of our identity.

I picked this one because it was highly recommended on some forums. 

Jason is your average male who thinks about lost chances. The what if, if you will, of our choices throughout our lifetime. He is faced with this when he is kidnapped and thrust into a parallel world where those “What Ifs” become a reality. 

I liked the science behind this book but didn’t really care for how it was written. It was a man’s book written by a man. (Sorry…it’s just how I interpreted it.) Plus, the ending was a bit much. I feel like the author gave up there and did the most random thing he could think of.

Overall a good read but wish I hadn’t of bought it.

Okay. So I liked this one a bit more than the first. 

It picks up a little after the first one let’s off and Alexia is the newly married Lady Maccon (to the Scottish werewolf). Funny buissness ensues and they find themselves on the strange trail of a powerful weapon that makes supernaturals human. The trail leads them to Scotland where the truth is unveiled and mystery afoot and so on.

This combines all the elements of a steam punk novel with that of a paranormal romance. I’m not quite sure how I feel about Alexie because while bad ass, doesn’t represent true soullessness. And the ending was a bit of a cliffhanger. 

I have all the books on hand so I’ll see where it takes me. I’ve read worse. 😉
