Synopsis: She had to travel beyond the planet to discover her true self. Will she find the courage to walk through the doorway to a new future?
Shambhala Space Station, 2097. Solitary physicist Callisto (physics, after all, is a jealous mistress) never accepted conventional wisdom. So when she’s recruited to work on faster-than-light technology by a beautiful and mysterious older woman, she eagerly accepts the career opportunity at the women-only research station orbiting Earth’s moon. But her enthusiasm suffers when her first discovery is unexpected heartbreak.
Throwing herself into work on a problematic warp drive prototype, Calli blossoms in the utopian female community that shows her love and acceptance for the first time in her life. But when a twisted conspiracy, a disingenuous affair, and a disastrous betrayal test her place in this unique environment, the brilliant scientist must dig deep to find her moment of truth.
Will Calli embrace her destiny in an unexplored cosmos?
Callisto 2.0 is the transformative first book in the Shambhala Saga feminist science fiction series. If you like compassionate characters, deep-space intrigue, and hopeful visions of the future, then you’ll adore Susan English’s cosmic adventure.
Review: For the most part, this was a very well done book! I loved the world building and the characters. The book was intriguing and it kept me intrigued in it throughout the book. I also liked the representation. You don’t see a lot of females in space station setting books and the romance really made the book.
The only issues I had about the book was that the book felt a bit wonky in pacing in a few spots. It felt too fast in some and too slow in others. The book was also a bit too pushy in the romance and I wanted more of a focus on the sci-fi.
Verdict: It was really good! Definitely recommend!
