It’s Throwback Thursday again! This week, I’m looking back at the Dark Space series by Lisa Henry. Such a great m/m sci-fi! I can’t wait for the next book.
Dark Space (Dark Space #1)
I was not expecting to have my emotions tugged quite so strongly by this book, but man. Wow. There was so much about it I loved. I loved how the aliens were alien and unknowable. I loved Cam and his nobility. But mostly, I loved Brady and his “fuck ’em all” attitude, and how he develops, but not in big sweeping strokes. He felt real, like a real 19-year-old from the wrong side of the tracks (or the district, as the case may be) who’s trying to fit in a really big universe when all he wants is to go home. My chest and gut are all twisted up by the last quarter, but yeah, I loved it.
It’s going on my “re-read” shelf and I’ll be checking out Ms. Henry’s other books.

Darker Space (Dark Space #2)
Excellent follow-up to Dark Space. Although Brady develops pretty significantly in this book, he is still the angry, pissed-off-at-the-world young man I loved in book 1. I can’t wait to see where the author goes with this story. I’m hoping that ending means a third book is on the way!
