Just got done reading Sly Mongoose (which comes out in hardback August 19th), and this is the best one yet.
Set seventy-five years after Ragamuffin, a teenager who supports his family on the planet Chilo by scavenging metal from the toxic surface loses his best friend in a freak accident caused by falling debris. Someone hit the city … from space … and lived!
Who the stranger is, why he’s there, and what he’s running from lead to Tobias Buckell’s wildest SF adventure novel yet, as well as his best-developed characters and plot of the three. If you liked the others, you’ll love this one. He just gets better with every book.
