Description

Between Earth and outer space lies the Cord…

In the distant future lies Station, an orbiting space station tethered by a cord to Earth, allowing people to use the space elevator to travel into low-orbit without rockets, allowing for unprecedented space exploration and tourism.

Envisioned as a secure and enjoyable place to work and visit, the cord is a valuable resource—one that people are willing to fight for to gain control.

Travel along with a robot repairman who uncovers a disturbing conspiracy, a teenaged girl who is caught up in a revolution, and a tour guide in space trying to reestablish a lost connection with his brother on Earth.

Beginning at the end and ending at the beginning, this unfolding story told over future locales and times reveals the enigma of the cord and the secrets between the fragile ties connecting lovers, friends, and the generations who traverse the cord.

Oh my goodness. This book was incredible and grabbed me in from the very first page. It went from the future to the past and I absolutely adored it. Would’ve been fine with a longer story. So glad I came across it.

A future story about a space elevator and how it connects not only to the Earth but 3 separate stories. The beginning is the end and the end is the beginning. I found this to be an overall cool book with the exception of the 3 stories not fully connecting. The author left much to the imagination and for the reader to fill in the blanks and make the connections. I enjoyed the idea and concept.

I enjoy each of the individual stories, but the way they were told threw me off a little. I liked the fact that the Cord ended up being for everyone and that most people got along. The journey that began the journey to the making of the Cord was full of struggle and dangers, because like all life not everyone in the story want the Cord to be about everyone, but because many people sacrifice, the dream of two men came true.
As I said before the telling of the story was a little different but the actual stories were very interesting and very much about the politics of today but in a more dire future, and the struggles are very unusual but are overcome by those who you would not expect to be heroes, but they are because even though they were afraid, they tried.

I want to thank BHC Press and NetGalley for an advance copy of this unusual story

This is a decent sci-fi novel, essentially made up of three separate stories that kind of link together. The idea of a space station linked to Earth by a 'Cord' is quite clever, and the book actually has several clever and original ideas. However, for me it didn't fit together as well as I had hoped, but it is certainly worth a read, especially for fans of the sci-fi genre. 3.5 stars
