#ScifiMonth Waiting on Wednesday 11/09/22
Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!
Fractal Noise by Christopher Paolini (May 16, 2023 by Tor Books)
“A new blockbuster science fiction adventure from world-wide phenomenon and #1 New York Times bestseller Christopher Paolini, set in the world of New York Times and USA Today bestseller To Sleep in a Sea of Stars.
July 25th, 2234: The crew of the Adamura discovers the Anomaly.
On the seemingly uninhabited planet Talos VII:a circular pit, 50 kilometers wide.
Its curve not of nature, but design.
Now, a small team must land and journey on foot across the surface to learn who built the hole and why.
But they all carry the burdens of lives carved out on disparate colonies in the cruel cold of space.
For some the mission is the dream of the lifetime, for others a risk not worth taking, and for one it is a desperate attempt to find meaning in an uncaring universe.
Each step they take toward the mysterious abyss is more punishing than the last.
And the ghosts of their past follow.”

I want to try his new books
He’s definitely got some great ideas for sci fi!
That’s a totally new to me one! Hope you thoroughly enjoy it once you get to read it!
Here’s my CWW
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower 🙂
Thank you, happy reading!
I haven’t read the first book, sadly, but I am curious about this and I hope I can catch up😁
The books in this universe are standalones apparently, so maybe you can jump right in?
Oh yeah I love stuff like this. I’ve never read PAolini either.
To Sleep in a Sea of Stars was actually my first book by him, I’m looking forward to another one of his sci-fi!
I’ve yet to try anything by Paolini. I wonder if this one can stand alone from To Sleep in a Sea of Stars.
From what I read, I think the books in this universe can be read as standalones! So even though this is a “follow-up”, I believe it’s a separate story.
Interesting concept – I like the line about the ghosts from their past following them, sounds creepy(ish).
That line was definitely a good tease!
