Retribution Falls (Tales of the Ketty Jay 1)

Retribution Falls (Tales of the Ketty Jay 1) - Chris Wooding Other news - in among househunting and revising I managed to finish . Was a very good read. I have seen a lot of reviews comparing it to Firefly which I can understand (similar world structure and the crew of a renegade ship).

I love the fact that each character had their own stories that were understandable, despite a world with different rules to our own and that all of them were developed within the book. I also have a soft spot for anti-heroes (you know, the deeply flawed types who do questionable things, often for the wrong reasons). Can't justify that at all...

Altogether it was a really good read.
