Panglor by Jeffrey A. Carver

Panglor (Star Rigger, #3)Panglor by Jeffrey A. Carver
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Twists and turns and interesting adventure!

I really enjoy the Star Rigger stories (especially the Dragon stories!) and this book fits in well with the series. A prequel, of sorts, it had a good arc - from disgraced pilot pressured by, well, space-mobsters, to a castaway, to hero - Panglor goes through a hero's journey of sorts.

Carver's Star Rigger 'verse is a nice change from Star Wars/Trek genre fiction (which I certainly don't eschew). It would be fun to see more - especially in the Dragon realms, though I doubt that is coming.

A Fatal Grace by Louise Penny

A Fatal Grace (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache #2)A Fatal Grace by Louise Penny
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Excellent continuation of the adventures of Armand Gamache.

I'm reminded for various reasons of Jane Haddam's mysteries - complex, interesting characters.
