Outer Bounds: Fortune’s Folly

Warning - if you haven't read the first book, Fortune's Rising, there are spoilers here. I've done my best not to give away anything from the second book, but I'm writing this under the assumption that you've either already read the first, or don't care if I ruin some of the surprises. As much as I enjoyed the first installment of the Outer Bounds books, the second one was far better.

Outer Bounds: Fortune’s Rising

The first book of the Outer Bounds series by Sara King, Fortune's Rising is a pretty good bit of sci-fi. The background is well set up, which is tricky to do. One of the challenges with writing believable sci-fi is that planets capable of supporting life are not a dime a dozen. They don't just happen, and when they do they're incredibly far apart, making it unlikely they'd be able to form any kind of shared governmental structure. Despite what Star Wars would have us believe 😉
