Sun of Suns by Karl Shroeder
Genre: Science Fiction
Source: Bought it
It is the distant future. The world known as Virga is a fullerene balloon three thousand kilometers in diameter, filled with air, water, and aimlessly floating chunks of rock. The humans who live in this vast environment must build their own fusion suns and “towns” that are in the shape of enormous wood and rope wheels that are spun for gravity.
Young, fit, bitter, and friendless, Hayden Griffin is a very dangerous man. He’s come to the city of Rush in the nation of Slipstream with one thing in mind: to take murderous revenge for the deaths of his parents six years ago. His target is Admiral Chaison Fanning, head of the fleet of Slipstream, which conquered Hayden’s nation of Aerie years ago. And the fact that Hayden’s spent his adolescence living with pirates doesn’t bode well for Fanning’s chances…
This book tells the story of Hayden Griffin, a young man seeking revenge. It is set in Virga, an imaginative new world full of action.
The plot was really good and it kept me hooked through the whole book. The characters were interesting and mysterious, their development was great and in the end I just wanted to read the rest of the books in this series.
I recommend this book because it is fast-paced and the plot is intricate. I really loved it and I’ll start reading the sequel, Queen of Candesce, soon.
Rating: 4 stars
