I received this advance galley via NetGalleyI m a huge fan of Wagers s other sci fi series The Indranan War and The Farian War and I was very excited to see what they could do with space opera set closer to Earth While this book didn t have the instant magnetism of the previous books in part because I had a hard time keeping the large cast straight in my head once it s gets going it s goodThe NEO G are essentially the space coast guard Under funded and under appreciated they monitor the shipping lanes and keep travelers safe from threats foreign and domestic There are no aliens Humans travel space alone and go long distances thanks to advances in extending the human life span technology patented by Max Carmichael s family However she chose not to enter the company or the Navy as dictated by tradition and her dictator parents but to enter the NEO G and really save people s lives Shunned by her birth family she finds a new family among her comrades in space as they do their day jobs and prepare for the big military rivalry reality type show that happens once a year However when mischief in space points back toward Max s family and their hidden tech she and her new friends start to dig for answers and soon find themselves the targets of some dangerous peopleTiming is weird in publishing Another book with a similar basic concept Coast Guard in space with a reality show component is also out in March 2020 Sixteenth Watch by Myke Cole being by an author with military experience is also much deeper into the military aspect and the Coast Guard and Navy rivalry has much much higher stakes In comparison A Pale Light in the Black is a breezier lighter book in the mode of Firefly Both books use the same concepts well and have entirely different vibes and plot linesWhat really shines in A Pale Light in the Black is the concept of found family These are people who grow close who have each other s backs and get to zoom around in space and help others I mean what can a person want
