Congrats to our friend former SFWA President, Cat Rambo on the launch of her latest title, YOU SEXY THING. Pitched as Farscape meets The Great British Bake Off this fun sci-fi follows former mercenaries who’ve opened a successful restaurant on a spaceport.
Here are more details on this entertaining book:
Just when they thought they were out…
TwiceFar station is at the edge of the known universe, and that’s just how Niko Larson, former Admiral in the Grand Military of the Hive Mind, likes it.
Retired and finally free of the continual war of conquest, Niko and the remnants of her former unit are content to spend the rest of their days working at the restaurant they built together, The Last Chance.
But, some wars can’t ever be escaped, and unlike the Hive Mind, some enemies aren’t content to let old soldiers go. Niko and her crew are forced onto a sentient ship convinced that it is being stolen and must survive the machinations of a sadistic pirate king if they even hope to keep the dream of The Last Chance alive.
What the reviewers are saying:
“Fun and action-packed… This action-packed space opera is loads of fun.” —BuzzFeed
“Fun, fantastic, and delicious—I loved it!”—Ann Leckie, author of Ancillary Justice
“Cat Rambo’s writing is everything you could hope for—lyrical, emotional, funny, by turns or all at once.” —Django Wexler, author of Ship of Smoke and Bone
“Rambo has a gift for immersing their reader into a vivid universe full of adventure, sensuality, wit, and poignant observation.”—Jody Lynn Nye, New York Times bestselling author
“Cat Rambo is a genuinely gifted writer.“—Saladin Ahmed, author of Throne of the Crescent Moon
“A romp. If you’re the kind of person who likes Mass Effect, or enjoyed Valerie Valdes’s Chilling Effect and Prime Deceptions, or fell head-over-heels for Tim Pratt’s Axiom trilogy… then this book is definitely for you. This is a fast, zippy novel that hides some surprisingly substantial emotional heavy lifting under its hood.” —Locus
