Araldis is still under occupation by hostile forces, and with the Orion League of Sentient Species seemingly unable - or unwilling - to help, Mira Fedor is forced to turn to the mercenary captain, Rast Randall, if she is to save her planet. But while Rast's contacts may be free of political constraints, what they lack in red tape they more than make up for in ruthlessness. ...more

The saga of Mira Fedor, Jo-Jo, Tekton, Insignia, Rast, Thales and the rest continues with Sole pulling strings behind the scenes, or so I believe

There is a lot happening, many things are revealed and many things happen to our heroes, while perspective about some change dramatically, but the highlight of the novel is the thread in the Extropian space and the truly mind-bending sense of wonder encountered there; as with book 2 there is little that happens on Araldis (thankfully since despite its s
"Love's a bitch, ain't she?"

Not for me, but certainly for Rast Randall and Jo-Jo Rasterovitch who have both fallen for Baronessa Mira Fedor from Araldis. When Mira is captured by the Extropists (nascent humanesques/post-species) Mira shows why Rast and Jo-Jo care so much for her. Resilience is the quality I find most describes the young refugee from Araldis. I'm not certain if resilience is something that most find attractive, but I know that I do. Part of that attraction lies in my own history
I paused reading this due to buying an eagerly awaited book. Then didn't continue for a year, I'd forgotten how imaginative it was, quite a good read.
Nice fast-paced story, makes you want to read the final volume. She's a good story-teller.
I would have given the book 3.75 if it was an option, however 4 will have to do.

Mirror Space is the 3rd in the Sentients of Orion series, which all started with the discovery of Sol, a god, in space, and also an alien attack on Araldis, the planet that Mira Fedor was born and raised on, from this point the series has grown and expanded, encompassing too many characters as it has progressed.

It is a long time since I read Chaos Space, so was a little hard to remember exactly what was happening in
The plots in Mirror Space are starting to blossom and the pace is lively. The action was consistent and unrelenting. I also liked that the characters continued to develop. Alas, the book ended in another cliffhanger.
An excellent installement in the Sentients of Orion tale - well structured and a thoroughly enjoyable read.

Araldis is still under occupation by hostile forces, and with the Orion League of Sentient Species (OLOSS) unable or unwilling to help, Mira Fedor is forced to turn to mercenary, Rast Randall and mineral scout Jo Jo Rasterovich to try and save the planet.

The reason and perpretrators behind the attack are still unclear and any of the players could be involved - "Carnage Farr", the Extropists
The second 'middle book' in this series both ending practically mid sentence. I'm rather annoyed this is being dragged out to a fourth book but at least they are small page counts.
