Whilst Slow Bullets is a smaller story (a novella length) and therefore did not have the depth of a Revelation Space novel, I still found myself drawn into this story.
It starts at the beginning of a ceasefire, where we find our protagonist. Scur is a wonderfully written and deep character, given the length of this novel. It is great to see a female kicking butts and taking numbers.
A tense, sharp and short thriller, this is not one to start your reading of Alastair Reynolds. If you have read his deep, sometimes almost too difficult to follow, novels and you are looking for something close to fun, then this is a perfect way to waste away an afternoon.
3.5 out of 5.
