Fate of the Red Lotus R.J. Sullivan

Sullivan has a good range in his work.  He can do horror, fantasy and scif and do it well.  That is not always easy, the do it well part anyway.   This book introduces an ambitious young lady who wants to prove to both herself and her family that she is a force to be reckoned with.

This book seems set a little further in the future than Virtual Blue.  This story has more in common with In the Blood.  Set in the probable future of asteroid mining, Sayuri Arai wants to make a name for herself without depending on her famous and wealthy family. 

It is a coming of age story set on a space station and mining vessel.   As most of RJ's book, the characters are the important part with the setting being secondary to the interaction of the protagonists.  

There is potential for a good series here, I am looking forward to seeing how the Red Lotus fares in her search for mineral wealth, fame and good fortune.

I recommend the book.

Web Site:

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
