This book has a lot of very interesting ideas and approaches the colonization of a planet in a very good way. The technical aspects of the book are very well thought out and make a lot of sense in the worldbuilding that takes place throughout the novel. The different castes are also unique and are done well with a divisiveness that adds a lot to the overall story. The passage of time is pretty large and it does jump between a lot of characters, within a pretty short book for what it tries to accomplish.

Hello everyone! If you’ve been wondering where Team Escapist has been, well, we’ve been reading. A lot. We were given 28 books in our allotment for this year’s Self Published Science Fiction Competition and it’s our job to narrow those down to 3, which we’ll put forward into the finals to duke it out for bragging rights and a sweet ray gun.
Within each of the judging teams for SPSFC there are roughly (30) books randomly assigned as their “slush pile” and this makes up each teams allocation. At Team Escapist, after some moving and shuffling around, we ended up with 28 books as our official allocation.
Hello all and welcome to another SPSFC2 post from us at Team Escapist. As the competition is officially now underway, we thought it would be prudent to let you all know a little about each of the 28 books in our team’s slush pile. Below you’ll find each of our books listed (in alphabetical order) with their covers and blurbs so you can get hyped with us (as well as a few affiliate links to Amazon)! I’m not going to lie, there are a lot of good looking books in our team’s slush pile, so I think we are going to have some tough decisions in the future! Wish us luck and maybe read along with us!
