About Chasing Solace 

The legendary Lost Ships exist, and they harbour nightmarish horrors. Opal knows. She barely survived her first encounter with one.

Despite escaping, she failed to find what she was looking for: her lost sister. Now Opal must board a second derelict Lost Ship to seek answers, and it's even more monstrous, a sickening place of death and decay. To make things worse, the military government wants her, dead or alive. Considering their reputation, dead may be better.

To find her sister, Opal will risk everything: her life, her blood, her sanity. There's always a price to pay. Armed with her wits, an experimental armoured suit, and an amazing AI companion, she might just stand a chance.

My review of Chasing Solace

Chasing Solace is the follow up to Lost Solace and I couldn't wait to get my mitts on it. What a fabulous read. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Opal again and her AI spaceship, Clarissa. I would recommend reading Lost Solace before this book, and if you enjoyed it you are in for a real treat. 

Chasing Solace once again revolves around Opal, a young woman who is alone in Space and who is searching for her sister among the Lost Ships. This is at the heart of the story. The close bond that they shared and that Opal will do anything to get her back, safe and well.

Of course, you have all the usual Sci-Fi speak and terminology, which makes this book such an evocative and exciting read. But, for me, this is very much a character driven novel, with Opal's voice at its core.

There are also beautiful and funny scenes between Opal and Clarissa, the AI spaceship, all set in the vast expanse of Space. You really get a sense of their remoteness and that they depend upon each other. These scenes are beautifully written. 

Chasing Solace is an adventure story about a lost sister. It's full of action, pathos and human emotion. It's also stunning and I loved it! 

Chasing Solace is published in ebook on April 15th.
