I'll be finishing my current book tonight (Empire of Ivory, book 4 of the Temeraire series by Naomi Novik) and I'd like to have my next one ready to go. I turn to those here for some suggestions on what to read next.
I haven't read much actual science fiction really because I've generally been more a fantasy fan, but lately I'm enjoying mixing it up more. That means there are TONS of sci-fi books out there just waiting for me to discover!
I'm in the mood for a good science fiction with solid science and engrossing characters. The last sci-fi I read that I really enjoyed were Revelation Space, Redemption Ark and Absolution Gap by Alastair Reynolds. The 3rd book was a bit floundering IMO, but overall I definitely ate it all up. What might make a good next read for me that is available in some e-book format?
* I prefer the science to be fairly accurate as I'm a the sort that is bugged when it's obviously off.
* Space opera is obviously ok considering my Reynolds enjoyment.
* Plot and character development should not be overshadowed by the science - I know some others get a little carried away.
* Stand alone books or series of books are all welcome.
Ok that's still pretty open ended there, but I figure it's a start. Whatcha got?
