Is there anything better than a jigsaw puzzle with an audiobook on a snowy day? Nothing’s better if said book is also “Brushfire” by Craig Alanson, 11th in the Expeditionary Force series, and the puzzle is of Maelstrom (cyberpunk 2077).
About the Book: Joe Bishop used the elder weapons card on the hostile aliens that would wipe out any life in the universe, this way everyone loses, so everyone has incentive to behave. Doing so he assumed Earth would be safe. Well… Safe-ish. They’re still going with the beta site plan, just in case. And… Well, he he, you’re not going to like where this is going.
My Opinion: Of course it’s good. By now, does anyone expect any less? The book is packed with tension, explosions, more tension, some hope to keep you reading, great humor, and utter dread for every character ever.
Damn, I dread the day there is no more. A 5 out of 5.
