2023 Book Review: Angel From the Rust

Angel From the Rust by Jason Link

A Science Fiction, 2023 by Phoenix Forge Press, 416 Pages 

What I Didn’t Like:

  • Some overused adverbs. A few times similes are even used within the same sentence. It’s a bit extreme.
  • Some flat characters. The implication of some being good or bad is clear but they feel flat like this has been decided for you instead of you deciding for yourself. 
  • The ending was mildly predictable. You could see the basics ahead of time, but the details were what you were waiting for. 

What I Did Like:

  • Great world created here. You are intrigued by both sides and how they connect. You also immediately look for that connection to what we know and that works too! This one really highlights why dystopia is a science fiction sub genre. It sort of made me think about Wall-E. Kind of what would’ve happened if Wall-E had involved people who opted to stay behind, if that makes sense. 
  • Multiple storylines crash together and connect in a pleasing way. 
  • Enough plausible science and technology to please those who like science left in their Scifi yet enough of a stretch to please those who don’t. This tech is just outside what makes sense with science right now.

Who Should Read This One:

  • Science fiction fans, specifically those who like space, technology, or dystopian. 

My Rating: 4 Stars

  • Well written science fiction that will please fans of the genre.
