review The Burning Light × eBook or Kindle ePUB î Disgraced government operative Colonel Chu is exiled to the flooded relic of New York City Something called the Light has hit the streets like an epidemic leavings its users strung out and disconnected from the mind network humanity relies on Chu has lost everything she cares about toHer too But Chu is getting close and Zola can’t hide foreverA thrilling and all too believable science fiction novella from the authors of Twelve Kings in Sharakhai and SeedAt the Publisher's reuest this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software DRM applied. The vivid and detailed scenes the compelling and full characters the tight and exciting plot all of that points to a 4 or 5 star review Lots of creativity and so much pure content for a short few hour read and I feel I learned a lot of mature writing techniueYet too much of this is just fantasy and doesn't gel into a workable world Human slave labor and manual boat power despite telepathy Fresh vegetables and nothing else to eat What does a reader gain from reading dystopia where the ending doesn't feel satisfactory for anyone Except for the light and without spoiling the ending was just a letdown and I'm one who loves peaceThe authors are just simple wrong about what is necessary for both emergent system properties and sentient consciousness

Ut to the Light She’ll end the threat or die tryingA former corporate pilot who controlled a thousand ships with her mind Zola looks like just another Light junkie living hand to mouth on the edge of society She’s special though As much as she needs the Light the Light needs. The Burning Light by Bradley P Beaulieu has a lot of plusses on the balance sheet The tale of Manhattan post apocalypse is fleshed out in such a short story The division of society we experience today continues in this futaure Even the villain makes sense with a back story that makes her drive to eradicate Zola and the Light believable But what the heck is the Light Is it a drug Is it some sort of AI gone rogue Is it an ancient evil bent on enslaving humanity Is it angelic grace from the TV show Supernatural After reading and ruminating on the story I still have no idea what it wasWhile the characters were written well and they all passed the sniff test they weren't relatable I wasn't able to connect with any of them I didn't care if the light did whatever the light was trying to do I didn't care if Chu killed the junkies or Zola The ending was a letdown I'm not sure if the author intended the ending to be happy or sad or what I didn't get itI'm glad that TOR is producing novellas and they seem to have a decent digital price point I think The Burning Light shows just how difficult it is to create a deep story within the constraints of short fiction Despite my complaints I'd still recommend reading The Burning Light I'd rate it at four stars and I look forward to reading novellas from TOR
