Strange Dogs by James S.A. Corey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Shorty, hm, novella? Paid 1,99 Eur for it, which I consider way too much, sorry folks. Should have been free as a teaser for the series. And this is listed as 80 (print) pages on Amazon, but the story is only half of that, the other half is teaser for two other books by different authors.
Which I really do not read most of the time (unless I already now the author, but chances are then I will by the book from which the excerpt/start chapters are anyway).
Nice weird story, told from the POV of a child (10-12 yrs I guess, not sure wether it is mentioned).
Also this planet-system is the one which is mentioned in Babylon's Ashes, so some background from Babylon's Ashes should be known. Not sure how the next book (will be published in a few days) connects to this, so not sure wether this is required reading.
My guess is yes, when it plays a larger role in the next book, no, if not.
With the still high price, recommended for fans or try to borrow it.
