    1 thought on “Traveler in the Dark

    1. Good read.Except for a few continuity glitches, this is a well thought out story. It moves along nicely and the plot is interesting and engaging. The descriptive prose is vivid and well written right down to the gory bits. I would definitely recommend it.

    2. I liked the concept of Deidre Gould’s Traveler in the Dark. I found the story engrossing, and it was hard to put down as life’s demands took away my precious reading time. I found the portrayal of the multi-generational surveyors and their initial reaction to the alien planet after a lifetime aboard a spacefaring habitat to be quite believable, and in line with expectations based on my studies of human behavior.What I did find a little hard to swallow was the “villain.” In Traveler in th [...]

    3. Interesting story, containing lots of different elements. The alien artifact is the most unique part of the story, but I thought the psychological issues involved in moving a population from a ship to a planet were well portrayed. The dangers of people leaving the only habitat they've ever known go beyond the physical, although that's part of the story too. Between the deteriorating ship, illness, and the dangers of moving to a planet, nothing is easy for the characters. How the alien will ultim [...]

    4. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review This is a story about a generation long exodus of what is left of the human race flying through space. This ship comes into contact with what could be a planet ripe for colonization, but some of the passengers are against that idea. Now, you have to factor in the fact that the space craft is aging and falling apart, resources are at a minimum, and the time in space is killing the humans. Also, once the humans attempt to [...]

    5. Beauty and insanity beautifully portrayed I struggled to put this book down for meals. It is intoxicating, wonderfully rendered and thought provoking.The characters breath on the pages and you can't help but feel for them and with them. As they agonize over choices and decisions that will affect not only themselves but everyone they know, over their actions or inaction and the life altering repercussions thereof.A wonderful addition to any Sci-fi library.

    6. Great book! Well developed characters, fantastic pacing and thought provoking. One of the first real page turners for me for some time. I'm looking forward to seeing how this series progresses.The only negative - and I agree with another reviewer - is the swapping from first name to last name for the same characters without the book introducing them with both names originally. This makes it confusing in some early parts.

    7. Complex and disturbingThere's some stuff in here that's confusing, like why were they in space for 1600 years, what's spindling and why on earth would they bring up a foreign intelligence.There's also a haunting isolated feeling to this book that left me hanging. I liked it, but I also hated it

    8. Excellent book. Deep and intriguing characters, and an excellent story. A dying human colony adrift in space for 1600 years, and a survey mission on a planet that could maybe be their new home. However, he planet was home to another sentient species once, and all that if left being is a single guardian robot.There is murder, intrigue, and complicated character motivations.

    9. Eye OpeningWhat would happen if we were to attempt colonization? It is not all swashbuckling and bravado. This is a story that gives life to real and believable scenarios. Humans drifting and surviving over a thousand years are dying out and desperate. Our ones chance is an hospitable world but what if our greatest enemy followed us? What if it was us?

    10. An interesting story with some very good ethical issues discussed - perhaps discussed a bit too much and too many times The storyline is really depressing and it makes me wonder if humanity in 1600 years would still be acting as poorly as we do now. There is a satisfying close to the introductory story, and I'm undecided if I'll see what happens next.

    11. OMG!What a story, I can't stop crying. This book has so much it's difficult to list it all, but I'll try. Entertainment, adventure, friendship, evil, faith, murder, goodness, hope, treachery, misunderstanding, human foibles in all of their glory. I highly recommend this book! I'm going to kiss and hug my computer now.

    12. Great storytelling! We can all imagine the moral conflict people might have upon colonizing a new world: are we going to destroy the planets original inhabitants, flora and fauna, is the planet going to destroy life as we know it? The discovery of an older and extinct civilization made this book interesting. I think it might be a good introduction into a new series.

    13. A good sci-fi will ask the hard questions, and this one asks! This is old school sci-fi, asking the relevant questions of today in a different scenario. The book puts together characters, situations, and possibilities, and allows the reader to question their own answers. If you are a fan of thought provoking sci-fi, this is a good book with which to do it!

    14. I enjoyed the premise and how the guardian was introduced - the sense of being a necessary part of a community but not accepted is quite reminiscent of Karen Traviss' City of Pearl. But the heavy handed environmental messaging and the inconsistent characterisation (behaviour driven by plot requirements rather than vice versa) meant I stopped around the second death.

    15. Not horrorThis book is not horror to me. More like a SciFi thriller. And there always has to be the one person who tries to sabotage everything as if this is the only way to make it exciting. Too predictable in my opinion.

    16. Dimly visible potential hidden in poor characterization and worse plot development, all served with a huge helping of angst and confusion. I hate to discourage anyone from writing, but don't give up your day job.

    17. Brilliant introduction to a new universeFirst book that I have read by this author and I am hooked. Brilliantly written page-turning story with such wonderful characters and a plot that had me turning the pages. Brig on book two!

    18. Good but too much OMGDecent writing, unique ideas, but way too much circular reasoning. Covered the same ground about who is right or wrong and should we or shouldn't we do this or not that it detracts from the other parts of the story.

    19. BlaI didn't even finish it. The story line was choppy and predictable. I found it difficult to relate to any of the characters.

    20. Great science fiction! This is the start of what could be a very interesting series, or a wonderful stand alone book. I`m looking forward to reading the next one.

    21. Not for meNot saying this was a bad story, rather it just wasn't my kind of story. Had a hard time buying the fact no one figures out who the killer was.

    22. Not goodA nice idea but I did not like the product. Eventually I tired of the good and bad decisions of the people in the story.

    23. DisappointingWhat started out as an intriguing new world exploratory turned into a psychopathic mayhem that I’d have just as soon never gotten into.

    24. Another HitDierdre Gould has done it again! Who would have thought an insect could be endearing? I'm going to go back & read this one again. Brava!
