Book Description
2057. Bella Lind and the crew of her nuclearpowered ship, the Rockhopper, push ice. They mine comets. But when Janus, one of Saturn's ice moons, inexplicably leaves its natural orbit and heads out of the solar system at high speed, Bella is ordered to shadow it for the few vital days before it falls forever out of reach.

In accepting this mission she sets her ship and her crew on a collision course with destiny-for Janus has many surprises in store, and not all of them are welcome...

    Si te'l mires com a llibre d'aventures és pràcticament impecable, però com a ciència ficció realista trobo alguns aspectes massa forçats: intuïcions inexplicables dels personatges que fan avançar la trama, reaccions emocionals extremes una mica fora de lloc i una tendència al Deus Ex Machina que aigualeix una mica l'impacte de la novel·la. Tot plegat no treu que el llibre enganxi com el loctite i el recomano molt a qualsevol aficionat a la cifi. Reynolds mola, en vull més.

    Has written better.

    You can always expect good space opera from Reynolds. But a little cheesy, and a lot lame: the miner's have this motto, "We mine. It's what we do." ... Needs to try a little harder on details and on the character study. Oh, and the token asian needs more screen time.
