A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe (The Salvagers #1) Reviews
What a great time hanging out with the crew of the Capricious! A suspenseful and edge-of-your-seat space swashbuckler. The cast of characters really are out of this world.
I’m all in with this new series.
4.5 intergalactic stars.
Take A Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet, replace the alien crew members by humans (but keep it diverse and queer AF) and add lots and lots of action AND ALSO MAGIC and you've got A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe.
This found-family/anti-hero squad of space witches takes you on one hell of a ride, FEELS and sexual tension galore included.

Thank you to Orbit books for sending me this book free of charge for my honest review

I normally don't like science fiction because the author goes into too much detail about the setting. The way all of the details are woven into this make it exciting and easy to follow. The characters are funny, sarcastic and believable. I can't wait for book 2.
Haaa this was really great!! ✨

A big ship at the end of the universe made me think of a mix between The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (I mean even the title!), Fortune's Pawn and Revenger. Though there are ...more
I'd read good things about Alex White's "A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe" and, having just finished the book, I can see why. This is space opera at its best: a crew of likable characters facing off against an evil conspiracy in a galaxy powered in equal parts by science and magic. The book gets off to a high-octane start when Nilah Brio, a renowned race car driver, witnesses the murder of a rival driver during a race and finds herself framed as the prime suspect. At the same time, Elizabe ...more
Utterly magnificent! I love how Alex manages to mix magic and sci-fi with such dexterity and pulls together a tightly woven plot, compelling characters with well crafted character arcs each and a very fast paced action packed story with such finesse.
There were times when I exclaimed out loud "Nilah noooooooooooooooooooo!!!" or "Nilah, what the fuck", I laughed at Boots and Cordell's banter, admired Orna's strength and resilience and loved gentle Malik, Aisha and Didier.
The plot reveal is quite ...more
