Review: Six Wakes by Mur Lafferty

5 stars for Six Wakes by Mur Lafferty.

Six wakes. Six crew. One starship project.

This story has the novelty of a one-stop shop space opera with cloning, mindmapping, hacking, artificial intelligence and plenty of secrets to go around.

The Dormire, a spacecraft whose crew on board is given the promise of a clean slate and new planet is on an exciting mission; a mission that is not supposed to end with slaughter and rebirth. To ensure their continued existence, the crew seek to unravel the mystery surrounding their circumstances and soon find themselves with no choice but to share their delights and fears and that skeleton in the closet.

Intense and gripping, the mystery and suspense embedded in the isolation of deep space keeps me on my toes from the start right to the end. Come join me on this story that reads like having a front-row seat watching a science fiction movie on the Big Screen, a space mission that is definitely a challenge worth taking up and a journey worth travelling.

On a spaceship far from earth, someone is murdering the crew. And the crew’s newly awakened clones will have to find their killer-before they strike again.

Maria Arena awakens in a cloning vat streaked with drying blood. She has no memory of how she died. And no one is alive to tell her; her whole crew is dead. Maria’s vat is one of six, each one holding the clone of a crew member of the starship Dormire, each clone waiting for its previous incarnation to die so it can awaken. But this time no one knows who has killed them all.
