My rating: <a href=”https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/954281760″>5 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
Luckbane is one of those rare books that made me smile every few pages as I lost myself in it.<br><br>In a future where countries are corporations, a janitor has the opportunity to embark on the adventure of a life time on a distant planet where the stakes are higher than he imagined. The game is very real, and death is permanent.<br><br>Luckbane combines Science Fiction and fantasy seamlessly, and the author takes great care in creating vastly different worlds, nuanced and fresh. He utilizes tropes and stereotypes to surprise the reader rather than make us feel we’re reading another rehash of Lord of the Rings.<br><br>The pacing is brisk, and the battle scenes are visceral and well drawn; we care about the characters and their fate.The supporting cast is interesting and diverse.<br><br>There is an airiness about this book I really liked, a kind of light in it which is rare in any kind of book. I highly recommend it to fans of fantasy and sci-fi.<br>
