It has many names – The Dead Ship, The Demon Ship, The Shadow Ship…

Sighted down the centuries, the ship occupies a space between myth and reality. Many have tried to find it but few have ever returned.

A fast-paced space-opera that addresses some weighty issues, The Shadow Ship by John-Paul Cleary (@ConvergentSpace) is the second entry in a series started by the excellent Convergent Space (see my review). Although helpful, reading the first book is not required to enjoy The Shadow Ship.

A long wandering story

The space book no. 2 is the most rambling fantasy I have read. Good in parts, too many side stories for me, unlikely to read any further book in series.

Got half way through and gave up. Very average sci-fi and badly written as well. Won't be reading any more of this author. Wish I had the book version so I could actually put it in the bin.
