2.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2015/05/29/bArtemis Awakening is a strange novel, one I wish I could have enjoyed a lot more. I wouldn’t say I disliked it, but neither did it hold my interest…and later on it just plain weirded me out. After mulling it over for a bit, I’ve concluded my disappointment probably stems more from feeling suckered in by its description, rather than something specific associated with the story.First of all, the setting is Artemis, described as a [...]
This dual review was originally published at Reading RealityCass: So where should we start? The Good, The Bad, or the What the Fuck?!Marlene: I think the WTF comes at the end.Good first, then bad, then OMGWTF.Cass: Alright then, onwards to the awesome! Artemis Awakening has some spectacular world-building. I loved the entire concept of a pleasure resort planet (which, let’s face it, rich folk would totally build), and the amount of work they put into making it the best vacation ever. Can’t h [...]
All things considered, Artemis Awakening is not an unpleasant read. Just a very straightforward one. The plot is well put together but somewhat predictable. The observant reader will see the hook for book two coming quite some time before the climax of the book. It is the kind of cozy science fiction that will not really challenge the more experienced read and as such, I thought it was only mildly entertaining. I might be convinced to read the second volume but I doubt it will leap to the top of [...]
I clearly know this is bubble-gum pulp, not all that well-written but certainly fun. The only thing keeping me from loving this enough to continue the series is that the character building wasn't all strong, a little bumbling. And the interludes that you finally figure out on like the last two pages? Would have been way, way, way more interesting if that happened about halfway through. They pissed me off the entire book so the payoff at the end was zilch. Especially as it was written as a cliff- [...]
In some ways, "Artemis Awakening" is reminiscent of Andre Norton's post apocalyptic science fiction adventure novels that take place on an Earth like planet, which was once home to advanced forerunner technology, but now is home to the leftover human survivors, who are making do in a less advanced world. In addition, Jane Lindskold, like Norton, has been able to create memorable human characters who have a bond with animals. Like her 2001 "Through Wolf Eyes", which featured a girl who could spea [...]
It felt like an eighties or nineties fantasy novel, a real flashback feeling. Which could be a good thing, but though it was not unpleasant it was also not at all compelling. As I got toward the end I wasn't planning to rush into reading the second book, and might not ever have gotten to it at all if I hadn't already reserved it when I got this one and if there wasn't at least a bit of a hook near the end that I should have seen coming but I really didn't care enough to try and figure out the hi [...]
Artemis Awakening is a soft SF novel about an archaeologist named Griffin Dane who crash-lands on the legendary, lost planet he was studying. He is rescued by and befriends a woman called Adara who has a mental link with her puma companion. Together they work to find a way to return him to his people. There is one among the Artemisians who might have such knowledge, but disturbing rumors surround him.There's nothing really wrong with the writing in the book, but I simply didn't find it very comp [...]
The Good: If you can get past the first half of the book's slow and pretty boring progress, there is a fairly decent story here. The shift in pace was jarring, but I was so thankful for it, we'll call it a good thing. When dealing with the science fiction angles on genetic modification and breeding, the book was at its best. Had the entire book focused on that, instead of meandering through weird feudal fantasy to get there, it could have been a 5 star read.The Bad: My big problem with this book [...]
Pros: great characters, interesting storyCons: romantic elements, though minor, feel awkward at timesWhen Griffin Dane locates the planet he believes to be the ancient pleasure planet Artemis, his intention is to study it and return to his home world and bask in the glory of his historic discovery. So when his ship crashes, stranding him there, he’s eager to find his way back to the stars. He’s rescued from the wreckage by the Huntress Adara and her demiurge puma companion Sand Shadow, with [...]
While overall I enjoyed this story well enough, it has a number of issues.The pacing is a bit slow and, though I understand it's the first in a series and it does tell a complete story, I felt there wasn't enough development (plot and character) to be satisfying for a whole novel. Not to say there wasn't any, but there wasn't enough for it to feel standalone, which I believe individual installments in a series ought.But probably my biggest problem with it, aside from its trading in some very sil [...]
This was a decent enough story. It's the type of Planetary Romance that would have been right at home in the 1970s and 1980s: a guy crashlands on a long-lost planet and as he enlists help from the locals to get back to his orbiting ship he becomes engaged in their lives along the way.It's a bit lightweight, which is no big deal. I was annoyed by a few sudden deus ex machina moments (suddenly the space visitor and one of the scholars can communicate via dreams) but the worse issue is that about 2 [...]
I enjoyed this book far more than I thought I would at first. Can't wait to read the sequel.
The planet Artemis was designed by advanced science to be a perfect, primitive escape for the ultra rich and powerful. Included in that fantasy was the population, who were mostly human but engineered to fulfill a role and not expand outside of that role. So while the masters have been gone for centuries, and Artemis has been lost to the rest of the galaxy, their society still resembles a fantasy kingdom with quaint villages and hunters who share connections with beasts. One such huntress is Ada [...]
Spoilers, so beware. Everything on the planet Artemis - the people, the animals, the towns and landscape - was designed by a technologically advanced race as a place where they could get away from their technology and get back to nature - sort of like how rich people go on safaris or climb mountains in remote parts of the world now. This advanced civilization fragments into different factions and destroys itself, the civilization that survives from this destruction still possesses space travel a [...]
Mind links between humans and cats? or bears? Sign me up!Sigh.The world-building was great - the world Artemis was literally built up from an asteroid to be a paradise get-away for the ridiculously wealthy, but said wealthy threw a war a few centuries ago and now the galactics have lost lots of cool tech. The people of Artemis have no space flight, but the gengeneering ran true, and they have some Altered kids born every generation. .Sand Shadow. A puma with fingers. I WANTI was not very impress [...]
Artemis Awakening is an interesting start to a new series by Jane Lindskold. I love the premise. The Empire created Artemis as a pleasure planet. The location was know to only a few and when the Empire went to war the location was lost. Now after over 500 years one man, Griffin Dane, has re-discovered the location.Worldbuilding: Lindskold got that right from the beginning. From the very first pages I knew that the humans and some animals were changed and that Artemis was a created world made for [...]
This book was the kind of comfortable, relaxed sci-fi that I would've loved when I was younger--a formula that delivers every time. But as my reading has matured with age, this formula can run a little dry, like it does here in Artemis Awakening. Woman hunter with psychically bonded pet puma meets man who crash-landed on her planet--an awesome premise, but one that I've read before. (Minus the puma). But what really made this book one that I stopped reading in the middle was that I found it so s [...]
I really wanted to like this book. Although it starts out very strong, with an intriguing premise and quick solid world building, about halfway through the plot is seemingly abandoned for another plot altogether. It's a shame, because I was hooked right up until this point. Even though this weird kidnap/forced breeding is eventually explained in relation to the main story, it seemed to take over the entire second half of the novel when it didn't need to. It ruined the book for me. Honestly I had [...]
Although I liked the basic idea of the book and thought that it could provide for a good plot, I often lost interest while reading, mainly because of the writing style. There are also some inconsistencies in the development of the story. For example, shortly after Griffin Dane arrives at the settlement where Adara has brought him, there is this attack by a mechanical spider. Then, for the rest of the book, that attack is essentially forgotten, it is not followed by any other similar adverse acti [...]
That was suprisingly underwhelming. It's also sad that the author had chosen to surround the heroine only with dudes, making especially sure that any woman her age was an unlikable cliche of the "typical damsell". I'm fine with dudes, really, but that's just ridiculous and felt like the tired "I'm not like the other girls" trope. The background itself is cool, but I need more than one lonely interesting female character plus a cat and while it was nice seeing Griffin and Terrell bond, it made it [...]
The story starts out slow and is immediately smothered by constant hints at a romance that surpasses the awkward middle school "my heart was beating so hard but I just don't know, oh dear she is so close yet so far". They bring up maybe one example of truly dangerous technology when you are led to believe through annoyingly cryptic interludes that the entire planet is going to massacre them. Halfway through the book the entire plot swings from killer robots to uncovering a rape farm. Overall jus [...]
I got this book and the sequel from BookOutlet without knowing anything about it. With that being said, when I was expecting a really crazy science fiction, this book turned out to be more action-adventure. It was entertaining but nothing groundbreaking or amazing. I do plan to continue on with the series to see where the story goes next!
Not for me I like sci-fi/fantasy with romance, not Romance with a sci-fi cloak.
This fiction must be interesting
I felt this book should have been classified as a young adult book. Certainly left me feeling I was reading something a 12 year would enjoy. Of course to graphic in places.
Review to come.
Not bad, but it just did not manage to engage me with the characters.
Some SPOILERS below:It was ok. The plot sort of dragged on in places I didn't think it should but then skipped (or rushed) over details that, to me, seemed interesting. JL can write, but it was a struggle getting through this. A man (a rather geeky archaeologist named Griffen Dane) from planet Sierra crash lands into planet Artemis, which is apparently populated with descendants from an ancient human population purposefully designed and placed on Artemis by the seegnur (and this word was never c [...]
Since I've been eager to read some sci-fi again, I thought this book was right what I need. A quick read of a space novel that was neither too complicated nor too boring. It mostly complied but unfortunately the writing style and characters were, at times, not quite to my taste. I also didn't know it was part of a series, though the title probably implied this already. Anyhow, the book starts promising with Griffin Dane, historian and archeologist from quite in the future, searching for an elusi [...]
