Debris by Jo Anderton (Book Review)

2012  was the year when I really got back into reading on a regular consistent basis, and I started the year off by reading some great novels from Angry Robot. Throughout the year, I read a number of the publisher’s titles, old and new alike, and one of these was award-winning author Jo Anderton’s Debris, the first in her Veiled Worlds series. Coincidentally, Jo’s award was for Debris itself and when I got done reading it, I could definitely see why it did, because it truly is a fantastic read with a rather unique take on things. Recommended reading!

In light of The Founding Fields currently suffering some major site issues, I’m going to be reposting my reviews from the site to the blog, so enjoy away!

The original review can be found here.

When I invited Jo to do a guest post for the series, she wrote back with one of the best pieces I’ve read so far.

Which reminds me, I still need to do that NaNoWriMo “after-action” report too! Ack! You can read any of the previous posts by using the series tag: “Names A New Perspective“. The previous line-up of authors is here. So, without further ado, here you are.
