This was one of my few new reads of the year. Fans of Mark Watney will love meeting Jazz Bashara and encountering life on the moon. In the domes of the city Artemis, Jazz dreams of getting rich, and a wealthy investor gives her an opportunity to make it happen. At first the plan seems to be going along swimmingly. But soon it’s not only Jazz’s life on the line.

Jazz’s vibrant personality may seem over the top at times, but it covers a deep pain. She’s a smart, skilled, and sassy heroine to cheer for, and the perfect person to form a team to tackle a major task. From mobsters to politicians to the problems of living on the moon itself, Artemis is always engaging with plenty of science and high stakes afoot.
