Descendant Machine by Gareth L. Powell ~ a Review

by MK French


The Grand Mechanism is the dormant machine the size of Saturn’s rings that the alien Jzat watch over. Some Jzat and humans hope to gain power and opportunity if they activate it, but the only person who knows how is the Rav’nah Abelisk, a Jzat holy man on sabbatical aboard a vast alien megaship. Believing the Mechanism’s activation will bring galactic devastation, Nicola Mafalda has to seek out the Abelisk before his sacred knowledge falls into the wrong hands—but only if she can first escape the lethally radioactive remains of her wrecked scout ship.

by MK French


Katie Collins loves her tiny Irish village of Ennisbawn, but developer Callum Dempsey is building a hotel just outside the village, and planning to knock down Ennisbawn’s only remaining pub. That place is the last connection for Katie to feel close to her parents, who met at Ennisbawn’s once-famous matchmaking festival, both throwing coins into the wishing well that sits in the pub garden. To save the pub, Katie plans to uncover the well and revive the festival, which she's sure can bring the town back to life again. In addition to battling Callum for the fate of her village, Katie also hopes to help her two best friends find love as well. What’s another project when she's already taking on the village's evilest man?
