Injustice Quick Reviews 2.9

Cower not, fierce reader! We have a great collection of offenders today, including two brand new ones. Yes, I mean new TODAY. Let us look at our tomes and see their charges!

Galaxy's Edge: Legionnaire by Nick Cole and Jason Anspach- Yeah it's #StarWarsNotStarWars. Honestly, I don't care for the "real thing" these days. This was cool, it felt right. No crappy bad metaphysics, lots of cool fights, interesting aliens, and ultimately, betrayal. Major crime: Who pokes the Mouse? 8 of 10 fell deeds.

A Greater Duty by Yakov Merkin- I REALLY did not like the first quarter of the book. Then, the characters started changing, more and more. I hope his next book has folk I can like at the start, though. Politics, conquest, black ops, secret politics, and more herein. Major crime: Characters striving for redemption. 6 of 10 fell deeds

City of Corpses by John C. Wright- Moth and Cobweb. I really shouldn't have to say more but here: AWWWWWEEEEESSSSOOOOMMMME! Ok, not as good as book one, but still. Gil and Ruff have a great scene, our heroine learns more about herself, and our villains become more apparent and transparent. Major crime: Mr. Wright 9 of 10 fell deeds.

 The Recognition Run by Henry Vogel- Bits of this will have a similar feeling to those that read Sudden Rescue by Jon Mollison. There's a very different history here, and the impetus behind the story does change the nature as well as the feel of the narrative. Major crime- Rebelling against nobility, real or implied 7 of 10 fell deeds.

A Rambling Wreck by Hans Schantz-  This is a continuation from The Hidden Truth. I think enough background is there so you don't need book 1, but I'd still suggest it. Hans' writing is smoother overall, and his characters a touch more grounded. He still does retain his high levels of conceptual science(all well written), which do make some sections harder to get through. Major crime: Realistic reflection of SocJus attitudes and tactics. 7 of 10 fell deeds.

When you play Social Justice, the world loses.
