An Interesting Story
4 out of 5 stars
Light Chaser was one of those books that instantly drew me in. I knew from the first few pages that this was going to be an interesting one. Hamilton and Powell did a great job of keeping the information just right on the cusp of being discovered.
The story itself was about a space traveler who visits different locations/planets over long spans of years (1000 years in between each one). Her job is basically the same every time and it’s something she’s been doing for thousands of years. When finally someone is able to get ahold of her and the information they provide rocks her world. I can’t go more into it and more into pieces after that scene but it was excellent and reminded me a bit of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in a few places.
Overall, I thought Hamilton & Powell wrote a book that, while short, had everything a good story has. Light Chaser had intrigue and mystery. It had love and loss. And lots of other things that cannot be talked about for fear of spoiling. A surprise around most pages – this one definitely will stick me with for some time.
In Peter F. Hamilton and Gareth L. Powell’s action-packed sci-fi adventure Light Chaser, a love powerful enough to transcend death can bring down an entire empire.
Amahle is a Light Chaser—one of a number of explorers, who travel the universe alone (except for their onboard AI), trading trinkets for life stories.
But when she listens to the stories sent down through the ages, she hears the same voice talking directly to her from different times and on different worlds. She comes to understand that something terrible is happening, and only she is in a position to do anything about it.
And it will cost everything to put it right.Light Chaser by Peter F. Hamilton, Gareth L. Powell
