About this deal

What follows in a wildly entertaining, hilarious, action-packed story about a man and himself trying to keep it together while keeping a huge secret in a very small place.

I think knowing how much to give your mind to think about is something Ashton is really successful with here. I mean, the premise gives it almost entirely away: he's am expendable member of a colony crew, a designated dead man walking that can come back, and come back, and come back, being the canary for everyone else. Edward Ashton keeps it all grounded via a protagonist who experiences the wonders of interstellar travel and alien contact while literally having the worst job in the universe.

If that isn't bad enough, or that he chose it as a slightly less bad choice than being broke elsewhere, he's treated like shit by command and his only bright spot is some pretty cool people who stand by him even as he dies, and dies again. Narrated by John Pirhalla and Katharine Chin, the story was brilliantly performed and the personalities of the characters came through in the voicework. I tend to like the books I've read that involve clones, and I thought it would be interesting to read about Mickey7 and Mickey8 trying to keep the fact that there are two of them a secret.I was breezing through the pages, on the edge of my seat, waiting for the story to take a turn into something brilliant. I teach quantum physics, so I sort of understood most of this stuff, but I had to do some digging to make sure I got the details right. Unfortunately, Expendables are assigned to the most dangerous duties and, when they inevitably die, they are replaced with exact replicas.

com: How do you balance the novel's hard and soft science to be attractive to the broadest readership? She loves sci-fi, fantasy, and some horror and enjoys a multitude of subgenres including grimdark, space opera, first contact, gothic, epic, and time travel. A little bit of sneaky subversion and I was willing to forgive it the Jack the Giant Killer vibe because I did warm to the protaganist. They’re not leaving our ‘old’ Earth (nobody’s heard from them for over 600 years anyway) – the world Mickey and the colonisers are travelling from is a third generation colony world, Midgard which is a pretty pleasant place.But the announcement that just came out, where they confirmed that he's on board and Robert Pattinson is on board, I found out because my agent texted me the press release. Mickey comes from a lower class background, and everyone else on the mission is the elite of their society, and he’s the one who has to do every dirty job and die for them over and over again.
