SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2017 HUGO AWARD AND THE ARTHUR C CLARKE AWARD

'Chambers is simply an exceptional talent' Tor.com

**Winner of the 2017 Prix Julia-Verlanger**

The stand-alone sequel to the award-winning The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

Lovelace was once merely a ship's artificial intelligence. When she wakes up in an new body, following a total system shut-down and reboot, she has to start over in a synthetic body, in a world where her kind are illegal. She's never felt so alone.

But she's not alone, not really. Pepper, one of the engineers who risked life and limb to reinstall Lovelace, is determined to help her adjust to her new world. Because Pepper knows a thing or two about starting over.

Together, Pepper and Lovey will discover that, huge as the galaxy may be, it's anything but empty.

Becky Chambers is a science fiction author based in Northern California. She is best known for her Hugo Award-winning Wayfarers series, which currently includes The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet, A Closed and Common Orbit, and Record of a Spaceborn Few. Her books have also been nominated for the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the Locus Award, and the Women's Prize for Fiction, among others. Her most recent work is To Be Taught, If Fortunate, a standalone novella.

Becky has a background in performing arts, and grew up in a family heavily involved in space science. She spends her free time playing video and tabletop games, keeping bees and looking through her telescope. Having hopped around the world a bit, she's now back in her home state, where she lives with her wife. She hopes to see Earth from orbit one day.

Ein sehr gut geschriebenes Buch mit wunderbaren Charaktern

Die Wayfarers Trilogie (wobei es lässt sich diskutieren, ob man die drei Bücher streng genommen als Trilogie bezeichnen darf) wird zu einer meinen Lieblingstrilogien.

Die Wayfarers Trilogie (wobei es lässt sich diskutieren, ob man die drei Bücher streng genommen als Trilogie bezeichnen darf) wird zu einer meinen Lieblingstrilogien. Ich bin zum zweiten Mal beeindruckt vom Chambers Schreibstil und von der Fantasie und Liebe, mit denen sie diese Bücher geschrieben hat. Zwar bleibt die erste Band meine Lieblingsband, aber die zweite lässt sehr wenig zu wünschen. Ich freue mich auf die dritte.

Friendship all the way!

3,5 stars This book is very character-driven and friendship is a big theme in it. I don't mind that in particular, I enjoyed it in fact, but A Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet at least had an overall arc throughout the book and this one just hasn't.

I don't mind that in particular, I enjoyed it in fact, but A Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet at least had an overall arc throughout the book and this one just hasn't. The pace was, moreover, a bit too slow for my liking and then the end wrapped up too nicely and fast. The characters are the heart of the story, though, and I loved them dearly. Becky Chambers is a pro in characterization. Looking forward to more novels set in this world!
