A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe (The Salvagers #1) Reviews

  • Margit

    Magic in space

    Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review.

    Space opera with magic. Battles galore. Good guys always win. Bad guys always lose.

    What do you get when you combine futuristic car racing, intergalactic treasure hunting, evil government conspiracies, renegade space pirates, and universe-spanning glyph magic? You get Alex White’s incredibly fun and engaging A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe, the first book of the “Salvagers” series. This is a solid pick for a summer beach read, an action-heavy adventure with a nearly all-female cast of kickass protagonists that feels ready-made for a blockbuster film treatment. Although t ...more

    What do you get when you combine an intergalactic treasure hunt, space pirates, magical abilities, and futuristic racing all woven together by an almost all female cast seeking to expose a government conspiracy? You have Alex White's A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe, the first book in his brand new Salvagers series.

    The story is told through alternate points of view between Nilah Brio, a talented young, spoiled, and dramatic race car driver and Elizabeth "Boots" Elsworth, a veteran pilot tu

    This story is an interesting mix of magic and science fiction. I wasn't sure I was going to like the genre mashup but after a couple of chapters White's universe grew on me. Lots of action and plot twists. I enjoyed his use of two main characters instead of focusing on just one. Although there is a sequel in progress I felt like the story concluded to a reasonable ending. I'm looking forward to book #2.

    Honestly.. I’m not even going to bother with a proper review for this, as it was the first physical book I picked up and actually read from start to finish without starting something else in between.

    I was generously sent A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe from an incredibly kind, lovely woman. After seeing a YouTube video she did hauling it, and later a reading vlog all about this book I expressed how excited I was to read it myself. Only to later receive a message on Twitter saying she want

    I love this book. It's like a cross between "Firefly" and "The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet." We have an antihero found family who are hunting a famous warship to salvage and are being hunted by a terrifying killer called Mother. Our main characters are Boots (a washed up treasure hunter and veteran of a war that wiped out her planet's population) and Nilah (the darling top car racer of the galaxy who's been framed for a high-spectacle murder). These women are very different, but they're eac ...more

    Basically this was a fun read. For those who enjoy James Cori and the Expanse or the Firefly series this book will be enjoyable. Character development is pretty well done, you end up liking the whole crew, and the storyline suitably complex but it keeps you thinking. Book 2 comes out in December 2018 and while I may not pre-order it, I’ll definitely put it on my list to read.
