Reading Rampage #2: Review of Trang and Trust by Mary Sisson

I loved these books. I am reviewing them together so I don’t screw up and give everyone spoilers.

Trang starts with Wouter Hoopen the general manager of the Titan Station trying to get funding and worried about his future promotion potential. Then everything changes when a hole in space opens and on the other side is an alien station.  Sisson has a true gift to write humor in her narration.

Phillipe Trang the first human representative  is a wonderful character, but my favorite character is Shanti one of his body guards from the Special Forces. Sission excels at characterization through dialogue and I love how Phillipe and Shanti’s relationship evolves through the books.

All of her characters and alien races have distinct traits which make them unique, yet there is enough familiarity to get a solid picture in the reader’s mind. Her descriptions are so well blended into the narrative, I never feel the information dumping problem of some science fiction.

Now in Trust, the book starts a few weeks after the end of the first novel. Sisson focuses more on the Cyclopes and Magic Man which is nice because as the reader it gives us more time to know them better. And we see Trang evolve as a character, which I personally love.

Terrific Books–if you are a science fiction fan, check them out! 

I’m really excited to see where the series goes. I would just like to warn readers the novels deal with some adult themes and  have harsh language.
