Acid Sky

Acid Sky I debated giving this 2 stars for OK instead of one for poor , but I decided I really hadn t enjoyed reading it, and I have certainly read much better sci fi Perhaps you ll enjoy it if you have an interest in aircraft, but I found it very tedious There was very little character development, the bad guys were just bad with little or no redeeming qualities and the lead character didn t have much personality.

Having enjoyed Below Mercury I looked forward to reading this one I wasn t disappointed Well written, full of description, tense situations and a straightforward and interesting plot This is what Science Fiction ought to be I hope to read by this author. I wasn t sure about this book when I started it as it was slow to start and almost a bit to technical I am glad that I kept reading it as I did enjoy the storyline following like around the craft at Venus It would ve been nice to learn about the characters and have of a storyline. Not as good as Below MercuryAuthor got better in his second book Character events not as believable Not bad SF but good to know in got enter in subsequent novel. This is a science fiction story in the hard, realistic style, no bombastic action or far out Aliens to be found here The story is very well written and intensively well research The author knows how to give many technical details that help the story feel real without losing my interest, and that s commendable The focus of the story is one I had never read before in a science fiction setting and one that works surprisingly well to create mystery and tension I read Bellow Mercury from the author before and liked it as much, and I already have the other book in the series Torino Nine on my kindle So for someone who only read Space Opera style science fiction before, I found myself surprised to enjoy this series so much I will probably look to read hard sci fi story in the future based on the quality of Mark Anson s books. This is the prequel to the author s book Below Mercury and provides an entertaining and importantly, fascinating look at operation on Venus in the future Like his earlier book the author demonstrates a sound technical knowledge of the technology and procedures and this creates an authentic feel for the story From the opening lines you get a strong feel for what life must be like for the astronauts involved.Unfortunately the book doesn t quite match the high standard for the first story, the main issue here is the overall story It lacks the punch of the events on Mercury and to be honest uses a few cheap shots to carry it The horror movie sequence near the end kind of spoiled it for me.Although it didn t spoil it too much While it s fair to say the story isn t anything special it s still a damn fine read The main reason for this is the vision of it I was enthralled by procedures and the day to day life on one of the big carriers permanently based in Venus s atmosphere This does raise a minor complaint, the author creates an interesting world, backed up with solid technical details However the wider concerns seem to be missing I would have loved to learn about how the world economy supports such extravagant operations in space.So there s a couple of gripes with the story, but if you enjoy a technical and plausible science fiction read then this is well worth checking out.

Mark Anson has had a lifelong interest in reading and writing science fiction thrillers and adventures, and spends considerable effort researching and creating the highly detailed and scientifically accurate settings and drawings for his novels I think it s important to get accuracy and consistency in any fictional setting whether it s a historical romance or a science fiction adventure set on
