review Chill by Elizabeth Bear review Chill by Elizabeth Bear í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Suit of a traitor through a vast ship that is renewing itself in strange and dangerous ways an even insidious threat is building in a place no one ever thought to look And this implacable enemy could change the face of the ship forever if a ragtag band of heroes cannot stop. This is definitely a second book in the series not that you can tell that from the cover which must have been annoying for some people As such there are spoilers for the first book DustChill picks up only hours after the end of Dust Tristen Conn awakens in an acceleration tank after the colony ship has had to accelerate at drastic rates to escape a supernova The first part of the story therefore follows the experiences of Tristen Caitlin Benedick and Perceval as they accustom themselves to their new roles new relationships and in Perceval s case new status They do not do this unhampered of course because Arianrhod she whose actions contributed significantly to the disasters of Dust is also abroad and again contributing to chaos Much of the novel is in fact concerned with chasing Arianrhod with Tristen and Benedick s desires for vengeance running hot As they do so they encounter new areas of their worldship Jacob s Ladder that both broaden and confuse their understanding of the world and its purposeThere is a lot of chasing in this book a lot of running some hiding the occasional ambush One conseuence for the reader is in demonstrating the sheer size of the ship However this is not done as well as I would have liked as Bear shows little interest in emphasising the size or making it feel as seriously large as it must be This is problematic because without it I couldn t help but feel that Tristen Benedick and their companions were doing little than running through corridors either aimlessly or only to advance the plot by allowing them to meet new and difficult characters Although they clearly have a destination or for most of the story an objective it did make the book feel a bit like it was running on the spot On the other hand they do meet new and interesting characters just wait for the orchids and in the process we learn about the characters especially Tristen the history of the Conns and the worldship Not uite enough that everything makes sense and I still have some trouble with the Conn family tree which makes things a bit confusing sometimes but enough that some pieces from Dust begin to fall into place and other conclusions are suggestedMore is learnt about the Conns and the worldship through those who stay behind too Caitlin Chief Engineer doing what she does best learns all sort of interesting and uncomfortable things from the resurrected Jsutien once an Astrogator Meanwhile Perceval who has had hardly any time to come to grips with the fact that her sister love Rien has been subsumed into the new world angel is forced to start acting as Captain which means interacting with the new angel whether she likes it or not Despite her preeminence in Dust and her new role as Captain Perceval actually doesn t appear as much as I had anticipated here in Chill This lack contributed to my feeling somewhat unfulfilled by the novel as a whole Even when she was the focus of particular sections the reader is not given the same access to Perceval as in the first book This is not a result of shifting focus this actually contributes to the pace and excitement of the story I think as well as its richness Instead it felt like Bear wasn t sure how to deal with the new Perceval and that she was interested in the chase scenes Perceval s scenes felt a bit cursoryIt might sound as if I didn t enjoy this book very much but that s actually not true I like the characters and especially learning about Tristen and Benedick who were fairly opaue in Dust Bear does some interesting things with the worldship as a whole and although she doesn t always see them through offering them as tantalising possibilities I m hoping that the third book Grail will bring things to a magnificent conclusion I generally enjoy Bear s dialogue and her descriptive passages as well So I m definitely going to read the third book

review Chill by Elizabeth Bear review Chill by Elizabeth Bear í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Sometimes the greatest sin is survivalThe generation ship Jacob’s Ladder has barely survived cataclysms from without and within Now riding the shock wave of a nova blast toward an uncertain destiny the damaged ship the only world its inhabitants have ever known remains a w. I m afraid that I won t be able to review this book as seriously as I originally intended I wanted to read it as an adventure and a novel of chase because that s how it felt but I got sidetracked by alienish and outright aliens being bred in the bowels of the generation ship I wanted to get waylaid by Tristan the toolbox the necromancer and the fragment of our big bad angel from Dust but I m afraid I was distractedIt could be because the novel was a departure from the excellent setup from the first in the trilogy and perhaps it is because the main actors from Dust were forced into cerebral and sendentary roles Perhaps I wanted a smarter overmind incorporating the pizazz of the angels from beforeUnfortunately the novel felt like it was suffering from the same problem as the ship It was outrunning a supernova but it had no idea where it wanted to go I know it sounds rather damning but that s my take and the characters within go and hunt for a reason or an engineer to take them by the hand and just go astrogateWe do get it by the end with the help of leviathan but it felt like a whimper than a bang The first novel was much better Fortunately I m still riding the supernova of the first novel so I haven t given up on the trilogy I ll take on Grail right away and pray it picks up againIn the spirit of full disclosure I do have to let everyone know that this novel is going to suffer in my mind because I devoured a singularly fantastic book during the reading of this one The problem is simple I ve suddenly had to rearrange my favorite top 3 books of all time to make room for Raphael Carter s Fortunate Fall This out of print book was a complete unknown to me but it STILL has an iron grip on my mind and makes me look at EVERYTHING else in a poorer light It s not fair to the books that come after or in this case during because it s become almost impossible to be objectiveThis is also the best reason I can give for continuing on to the third book in good faith

review Chill by Elizabeth Bear review Chill by Elizabeth Bear í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ar zone Even as Perceval the new captain struggles to come to terms with the traumas of her recent past the remnants of rebellion aboard the ship still threaten the crew’s survivalYet as Perceval’s relatives Tristen and Benedick play a deadly game of cat and mouse in pur. Dust was a fantastic novel that reminded me of Wolfe s Dying Sun series Couched in mythicfantasy language but set far in the future Chill is Dust s seuel and sadly not as good as it s preuelThe world ship Jacob s Ladder has suffered some cataclysm which has left it adrift The crew is at war with each other inside the broken hull After a enforced peace breaks out at the end of Dust the ship sets out again after 500 years Now crippled by damage low on resources the crew must deal with tough decisions And then it looks like someone or something is sabotaging the shipThis book feels both short as in it hasn t covered much ground and rushed as in the final chapter or two and the big reveal all crammed into a chapter or two It feels like she had to pad the middle parts of the novel to expand the book out and then had an editor cut off the last couple of chapters Bear has done great novels but sadly it seems like her seuels always suffer
