B+ for "Emissaries from the Dead" by Adam-Troy Castro

B+ for "Emissaries from the Dead" by Adam-Troy Castro

Andrea Cort is a fascinating character, and the mysteries surrounding the deaths on One One One pull you in. I found that the novel somehow didn't live up to its own promise, but future novels might help. I wish I could have explored the fantastic world a bit more, but still an exciting mystery novel with hints of future potential.

This is a quick read with a wonderful setting and a lot of issues still to be dealt with in future novels. I wish we'd gotten a bit more detail on the setting and how the universe she lives in actually works, but that might have wrecked the quick pace of the novel.
