Mercury In Retrograde

Review:

Mercury in Retrograde - Merethe Walther

One lesson to be learned from Mercury in Retrograde: If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Aralyn, just released from the galaxy’s worst prison, gets an offer she can’t resist. One more job as a smuggler and she will be able to retire. That is, if the job won’t retire her first…

Mercury in Retrograde was an okay book. It had a bit of everything in it, which was probably also why I couldn’t connect to the story as much as I’d liked. The characters are just too busy running from one thing to another, there’s no time for any development. Even from Aralyn subjective POV it is immediately clear who will be the good guys. I’ve complained at length before about throwing everything in a book instead of really making one thing good in a book, so I will resist the urge to do it here. It got me out of my flow though, and when they were on the run for the nth time, I admit I started looking how much of the book was left and how long it would take me to read it.

I think it had more potential, what with the prison planet and the world in general. But quite a bit of it seemed as the surroundings for the romance plot, unfortunately. I’d expected a bit more.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
