As always this review can also be found on my blog The Tattooed Book Geek: http://thetattooedbookgeek.wordpress...

I received a free copy of this book courtesy of the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

The war between the Colonies and the Frontier has been over for ten years. During the war, Sigma Station or as it was known then Sigma XV was a mining outpost located in the Horsehead Nebula that both sides fought over.

Now, in the present, mining still takes place there but what was origin

4.5 stars...

Loved it! The suspense was great and there was non-stop action the entire ride! I literally held my breath through quite a bit of the book.

The boys, Corey and Malik, were my favorite characters out of all of them, besides the pilot, Captain Jana Volkova, I liked her a lot too, but the kids were seriously the stars of the show.

I only had an issue with one small part-(view spoiler)

I absolutely loved this! Hugely exciting adventure in space which fully delivers on a great premise. I can imagine people of all ages enjoying this. I didn't want to put it down at all. This is the kind of book that makes you miss bus stops! Review to follow shortly on For Winter Nights.

I loved LOVED the Outer Earth trilogy from Rob Boffard – I was utterly bereft after reading the last one, so when Adrift landed (or floated by or something) I was all YAY.

Rightly so it seems because this, too was so so so so good. It was just exciting and clever and emotional, pacy and incredibly compelling.

We have ten tourists stuck on a ship that is, well, not that brilliant. Everyone else is dead and gone having been attacked by a mysterious force. Only the fact that their pilot has some savv

The publisher provided me with a proof copy in exchange for a blurb. Here's what I gave them:

A claustrophobic and fiercely written adventure, Adrift is a crackling read full of intrigue, isolation and smart world-building. The story moves at a breakneck pace, every page dripping with tension. This is Boffard’s best book yet.

And I meant every word. This as about as tight-knit and close-quarters as outer space stories come, balanced on a knife-edge until the very end.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Little Brown Book Group for sending me a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and unbiased review

Wonderfully crafted characters and a captivating story make for a great read. The story was well thought out and gave an interesting take on what would happen in this scenario. I loved how claustrophobic the whole story was, making it more intense and a real page turner. The ending is also spot on and I couldn't have asked for a better resolution .

I was in love w

I won this as an ebook from goodreads giveaways. I'm picky about fiction so I tend not to enter many giveaways for it but this looked interesting and the horsehead nebula has personal meaning so I figured why not. I will update this review when I finish my current fiction book and move on to this one.

I discovered Adrift whilst on one of my regular jaunts through Netgalley's Sci-Fi section, and was immediately struck by its beautiful cover artwork and compelling synopsis. I loved the idea of introducing a Science-Fiction twist into the familiar disaster movie trope, switching out the deep blue seas for deep dark space and rather than having great white sharks circling a life raft, we have deadly enemy spaceships hunting down an unarmed civilian tourist

*copy from Netgalley in exchange for a review*

Adrift is the latest sci-fi novel from Rob Boffard, also known for his rather good ‘Outer Earth’ series.

The premise is an intriguing on. Following an attack by an unknown force, a small personnel shuttle is cast loose with a group of passengers inside. Damaged and alone, the passengers have no obvious way home, no way to signal for help, and only each other to rely on. That tension, the sense of being in a fragile bubble when the environment is activ

This was a GoodReads giveaway book and a great win at that. I enjoyed this book as both a light read and for the twist on a theme i enjoy - mental distortion of people put in extreme circumstances and the mob mentality that can go along with it. This wasn't a book about space travel, although it was the catalyst for the the story.

I found myself looking forward to picking up the Kindle to read more and find out what happens next. As thriller's go, this was on the very light side of that genre bu
