Book review: The Backworlds by M. Pax

I picked up The Backworlds (launched on this blog) a week ago and finished it within the day. The only reason this review is so late in coming is because I am a lazy bum. Word. :)

The Backworlds (Book 1)The Backworlds by M. Pax
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Run out of house and town by the Verkinn council elders at the instigation of his father, twenty-year-old Craze sets off to Elstwhere in search of his fortune. Craze soon falls in with two aviarmen, Lepsi - who’s trying to trump his brother Frederoy, and Talos - determined to establish a trade route in honour of his mother, in search of a new home. Their crazy new partnership leads them to adventure, dangerous places, and lots of money, or so they hope.

M. Pax writes with stunning imagery, creating a wonderful world of different species, bio-engineered humans and space travel. Her characters are vivid and varied, emerging fully-formed in your imagination. Her writing style is breezy and easy to read.
