Classic yet fresh space opera with lots of good characters and a well developed story. Beautiful descriptions, fun humor and lots of memorable lines. A happy ending with heroes you can cheer for.

We all know we have a lot of options when it comes to what we read. So picking up a first novel of a new author may require some convincing.

But I am going to try.

Wynde is a symphony. The first in a series Tricia Barr has layered her novel with history (I am a sucker for good world building), people, and emotion.

Overall, this was a book that I enjoyed. The characters were fun and it's definitely an interesting world that Tricia's built even if it occasionally felt like it had a few too many elements.

The first 100 or so pages were action packed and the last 200 or so were action filled too but the middle was much slower. The last part is what really caught my attention and I look forward to seeing more of where all th ...more

A solid start to a sci-fi series, but I just couldn't get into it. Maybe it's was because of all the things going on in my life lately, but while I was able to appreciate the world the author created, I kept wondering "where is this going?" through most of it and found myself confused as to some of the concepts in the story. I kept thinking I must have missed a book before it in the series, but nope, this was the first one. Also, I tend to gravitate more towards fantasy than sci-fi, but if you'r ...more

A welcome departure from modern, dystopian sci-fi. I enjoyed the characters. The main character, Vespa, has a nice arc. It was nice to watch her grow. I'm looking forward to #2!
