A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe (The Salvagers #1) Reviews
What do you get when you combine an intergalactic treasure hunt, space pirates, magical abilities, and futuristic racing all woven together by an almost all female cast seeking to expose a government conspiracy? You have Alex White's A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe, the first book in his brand new Salvagers series.
The story is told through alternate points of view between Nilah Brio, a talented young, spoiled, and dramatic race car driver and Elizabeth "Boots" Elsworth, a veteran pilot tu ...more
First off, I want to thank the publisher and the author for an ARC of A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe. Receiving this ARC, in no way, shape, or form, determined my overall opinions or review.
When I received this book in the mail a few weeks ago, I was already interested based off of the stunning design on the cover. It is absolutely breathtaking.
The second thing I noticed were the blurbs. Nicholas Eames, author of my #1 Read of 2017, Kings of the Wyld, has TWO blurbs. Yes, you read that r ...more
Haaa this was really great!! ✨
The middle was a rollercoaster of emotions, but one that always go up and up, maybe more like a rocket of emotions then! I didn't think I'd end up liking this so much, during the first 20% I didn't know what to think but then I was quickly won over by the characters and everything going on
A big ship at the end of the universe made me think of a mix between The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (I mean even the title!), Fortune's Pawn and Revenger. Though there are ...more
Loved this book and can't wait for what awaits the crew of the Capricious in future books!
The action and pacing in this book kept you wanting more as a series of events unfolds to the poking of prodding of Boots, Nihla, and the rest of the crew. Characters I initially didn't care for at all quickly became favorites.
I highly recommend it!

If you’ve been following Erlebnisse for a while now, you might have noticed a trend in some of these reviews; reviews in which pages numbers pop up, usually without context, never revealing fully why these page numbers are so significant, only that they are. My review of Scott Lynch’s The Lies of Locke Lamora. Tyler Whitesides’s The Thousand Deaths of Arbor Benn. And now, a new member joins these esteemed ra ...more
guys this was delightful!!! the world-building was wonderful, the characters were great, loved the whole cast of them, and the plot was this riproaring ride from start to finish. everyone go read this so i can talk about it with other people thanks goodbye
Honestly.. I’m not even going to bother with a proper review for this, as it was the first physical book I picked up and actually read from start to finish without starting something else in between.
I was generously sent A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe from an incredibly kind, lovely woman. After seeing a YouTube video she did hauling it, and later a reading vlog all about this book I expressed how excited I was to read it myself. Only to later receive a message on Twitter saying she want ...more
I love this book. It's like a cross between "Firefly" and "The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet." We have an antihero found family who are hunting a famous warship to salvage and are being hunted by a terrifying killer called Mother. Our main characters are Boots (a washed up treasure hunter and veteran of a war that wiped out her planet's population) and Nilah (the darling top car racer of the galaxy who's been framed for a high-spectacle murder). These women are very different, but they're eac ...more
