Review: Fluency – A sci-fi novel in the not-too-distant future. An astronaut team ventures out to a ship threatened by an incoming asteroid and finds life. Sort of. Not a bad read. Clearly, a set-up for future sequels. The author balances the benevolence and the hidden agenda (and personality) of what they find, very well. I didn’t review this on a technical level (grammar, similes, metaphors, punctuation, etc.). I just read it to see if it was a good story that held my interest.
