If You Like Elizabeth Bear Books, You’ll Love…

Hammered is the first book in the Jenny Casey series. This book is set in the future, the year 2062 on the hellish streets of Hartford, Connecticut. She is on the run from her government as she is a former Canadian special forces warrior. She has an artificially rebuilt body and while she would like to forget her past, her past isn’t forgetting about her. A scientist wants her for an experiment and she finds herself caught as a pawn in a deadly game that spans the internet, battered cities, and within her own nervous system.

Another popular series by Bear is the Jacob’s Ladder series and the first book in that one is called Dust. A broken space ship is stuck orbiting a dying sun and the inhabitants of the ship are getting restless. Things are as they’ve always been until a young serving girl frees a captive older noblewoman and unearths change. The serving girl and the captive will have to work together to stop a war and save their respective houses. The journey will lead them to Jacob Dust, the last remnant of God.
