really liked it review of another edition I don t read much science fiction horror on purpose, and I really hate it when what I thought was a hard core sf novel turns out to have zombies or vampires in it But, Darkness Between the Stars just straddled that line between weird and creepy, crossing over into the creep zone enough to make me keep my lights on while I read it, but not enough to cause

stars vanish into the darkness Neill s skill lies in creating an almost dreamlike atmosphere where the reader identifies intensely with the main character and his or her travails, even if some aspects of the worldbuilding are questionable upon later thought While certain elements such as the decision to select and send Joff on this mission doesn t quite gel, the mystery and actions drives the story forward The other feature is, of course, the marvelously grotesque alien monstrosities.There are only two genuine flaws I can find in this book first off, no constellations In a book where the main premise is some eldritch horror destroying the stars, not a single constellation is mentioned Not a wounded Orion or gored Taurus The second is the introduction of Callista, where the borrowing from Halo is a bit too overt.I eagerly await some future installments in the war to keep the stars burning flag Like see review Jun 16, 2018 James rated it it was ok review of another edition Shelves
