4.5 stars full review at http://fireandicephoto.blogspot.com/2011/01/phantom-universe-by-laura-kreitzer.html
I've been hot on Laura Kreitzer's tail since picking up her first book Shadow of The Sun last year and giving it 5 stars. But, I had no way to read egalleys and keep pace with her new releases. Thanks to DH and my new Nook, this is the first ebook ARC I've read in 2011. What an awesome adventure it was!
Think of Hush by Donna Jo Napoli spliced with Inside Out by Maria Snyder and the Uglies Series by Scott Westerfeld. It's a combination of pirate slavery tale meets time travel and poof 200 years into the Dystopian future.
