RELUCTANT TRAMPS
Bad luck brought Shadrack and his crew to Nivia; desperation kept them there. They ran honest cargo when they could; they stooped to poaching and petty larceny when they had to—or when it was convenient—until they put together a stake large enough to pay their way back to legitimacy. When they stumbled on a man near-frozen to death in the middle of Nivia’s

Intense

This story covers Terson Rielly's time aboard the Emburstero/Ladybird and the continuation of all the Hal's story and how they intersect there's a little surprise in here as well. I am enjoying this series quite a bit and have already purchased the next in the series.

This is a great science fiction novel and promises to get better.

This is a gripping story with several plotlines running in parallel. It has interesting characters and will keep you flipping pages until the end.

I won't go into the plot lines as Cleveland covers that above. They're kept separate for most of the book, which is fine at this stage of the game as forcing them together would've been too much. When it does happen, it serves as a reminder how past misunderstandings can snowball into tragedy.

Cleveland remains true to his characters' realism. Terson maintains his loner identity and it takes him many chapters before he lets his guard down enough to let others in. It isn't easy for him as there ar

Embustero is the second novel in Scott Cleveland’s Pale Boundaries universe. It starts very much right after the events of the first novel. Fortunately for this reader (who reviewed the book years ago) everything you need to know about the previous book is provided.

In essence, Terson Reilly, the protagonist, has discovered that Nivia, the world he’s living on, has a well-hidden secret colony on a supposedly-uninhabited continent. This colony is governed by a mafia-like organization, who besides

I really enjoyed this book and its predecessor, Pale Boundaries. The world-building is believable and the characters are fully developed, with shades of gray all around. I've been reading a lot of urban fantasy and time travel lately. This was a nice diversion into some solid sci fi. At the end of the Kindle edition, there's a note that another book is coming. I certainly hope that's true.
