Dark Orbit by Carolyn Ives Gilman Giveaway!
Today I’m really excited to tell you all about a new sci-fi with alien contact and a murder mystery :D. Dark Orbit by Carolyn Ives Gilman looks seriously awesome and you should all add it to the TBR ;-).
Reports of a strange, new habitable planet have reached the Twenty Planets of human civilization. When a team of scientists is assembled to investigate this world, exoethnologist Sara Callicot is recruited to keep an eye on an unstable crewmate. Thora was once a member of the interplanetary elite, but since her prophetic delusions helped mobilize a revolt on Orem, she’s been banished to the farthest reaches of space, because of the risk that her very presence could revive unrest.
Upon arrival, the team finds an extraordinary crystalline planet, laden with dark matter. Then a crew member is murdered and Thora mysteriously disappears. Thought to be uninhabited, the planet is in fact home to a blind, sentient species whose members navigate their world with a bizarre vocabulary and extrasensory perceptions.
Lost in the deep crevasses of the planet among these people, Thora must battle her demons and learn to comprehend the native inhabitants in order to find her crewmates and warn them of an impending danger. But her most difficult task may lie in persuading the crew that some powers lie beyond the boundaries of science.
Cool right?? I’m very happy that Tor has kindly offered a copy for me to giveaway too :D. This giveaway will need to be US and Canada only as per Tor’s policies, the winner will have 48 hours to respond and I’ll be checking entries so please don’t cheat (and make sure your usernames are correct!).
