Some of you may remember I hosted Wayne Basta several months ago for his blog tour in honor of the release of the second book in the Aristeia series. I bought Kindle copies of both Revolutionary Right and A Little Rebellion back then, and then I also won the contest he was holding and I got a hardcover, signed copy of each book delivered to my door (along with two other hardcover books from his publisher, Grey Gecko Press — A Fancy Dinner Party, edited by Hilary Comfort, and The Dying of the Light: End by Jason Kristopher).
I started reading the first Aristeia book, Revolutionary Right, on July 1st, but I didn’t finish it till September 11. This isn’t a reflection on Basta’s writing; it’s a reflection on my very slow reading rate. I’m terrible at finishing books quickly. Especially when I’m moving.
I thoroughly enjoyed Revolutionary Right and dove right into the next one, A Little Rebellion. Life has unfortunately been ridiculously busy this month (I’ve spent all of six nights in my new place), so I haven’t had much time to sit down and read. I’ve been reading the Kindle edition while traveling on the ferries, if I haven’t been napping in my car, and when I’m home I read the hardcopy.
Mild spoilers ahead.
