Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 235 - Gunpowder Moon by David Pedreira, The Rebel by Gerald Brandt

Gunpowder MoonGunpowder Moon by David Pedreira
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The moon smells like gunpowder and now there has been a murder that needs to be solved. Up until now everyone is playing nice but suddenly it looks like a war is coming. Caden Dechert is the conflicted chief of the US mining operation at the edge of the Sea of Serenity. He was a solider and tired of killing. He went to the moon to get away from his past and now people are being killed on his watch again. This was a locked room mystery with a surprise ending. I missed the clues just as Caden did. See if you pick up on what was really going on. This was well written with an intricate plot and well developed characters. Great for mystery and scifi fans.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Chris Merrill is still trying to break the corporation's hold on San Angles even after suffering massive losses. This series has some very interesting world building and back story. Chris is facing overwhelming odds as she tries to reach her goals. The tension and danger just keeps building. I enjoyed hearing Chris's story and really liked the ending. Chris is a survivor who works for a better life for everyone. A nice conclusion to the series.
