The Void Beyond (The Cluster Saga, #2)
The second of three books, and the author has doubled down on the bad stuff from the first book and just given up on all the cool stuff. Great concepts from the previous entry were just straight up abandoned in favor of building a story about shitty religions in the future doing the same shitty things they’re doing now.
pretty happy I got these for free, but sad that such a great first book was followed up with this nonsense. I have the third one, but it might take me a while to get to it.
