Reading Quest » Architects of Memory by Karen Osborne
Wow, what a read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Architects of Memory is a non-stop, incredibly thoughtful novel that sticks with with you long after you put the book down. It has the pacing and scope of a blockbuster sci-fi, bolstered by the warmth and emotional intimacy of the characters and relationships.
I think I was most impressed by the worldbuilding and (dark) history, which builds up eerily in the periphery, then sneaks up from behind and hits you when you least expect it. 😅
The intricately developed and terrifying political landscape will have you brainwashed right along with the characters, who are constantly bombarded by morally gray, impossible choices that will have you scrambling to turn the page.
Saying anything more specific feels like a spoiler 😅 so I’ll just say, if you love sci-fi, definitely check this one out!!
I'm eagerly awaiting the sequel, Engines of Oblivion, out February 9th!
Blurb for Architects of Memory:
"Terminally ill salvage pilot Ash Jackson lost everything in the war with the alien Vai, but she'll be damned if she loses her future. Her plan: to buy, beg, or lie her way out of corporate indenture and find a cure.
When her crew salvages a genocidal weapon from a ravaged starship above a dead colony, Ash uncovers a conspiracy of corporate intrigue and betrayal that threatens to turn her into a living weapon."
