At the beginning of each month, io9 publishes a post tagged ‘bookshelf injection‘. And this month, I’m finally going to read one of the suggestions!
After looking through the list for this month, I’m leaning towards Tracer by Rob Boffard and Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine.
In Tracer by Rob Boffard, the last remains of humanity are living on a decaying space station, orbiting a dead planet. Air and other resources are increasingly scarce and ‘Tracers’ are the couriers running things on the station.
Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine takes place in an alternate history, a world where the Library of Alexandria was never burned down. Now it still stands and controls all human knowledge.
