Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda
Tuck has been in stasis on the USS John Muir, a ship that houses Earth’s most valued artifacts—its natural resources. Parks and mountains are preserved in space.
Laura belongs to a ship-raiding family, who are funded by a group used to getting what they want. And they want what’s on the Muir.
Tuck and Laura didn’t bargain on working together or battling mutant aliens who use sound to kill. But their plan is the only hope for their crews, their families, and themselves.
In space, nobody can hear you scream . . . but on the John Muir, the screams are the last thing you’ll hear.
This became one of my favorite reads this year!
I absolutely love the diversity in this with the main character and her surrounding family.
Pitch Dark is full of real-life issues and metaphors which gives this book a really good quality, it makes you wake up to social issues and to actually pay attention that there are bigger problems in this world that we need to focus on, together.
Tuck became my favorite character right off the bat, he was so concerned with other people more than himself, he cared about everyone around him a lot more than he cared about what happened to him which speaks a lot about the character. Tuck is just so loveable and sweet and funny with his sarcasm and pop culture references!
Now Laura is a badass woman who you can’t help but root for until the very end of the novel. She is so strong and fierce. She doesn’t let her past trauma’s pull her down, rather she embraces what has happened and tries to find a new way to rise stronger than before. She is a fighter and she never stops fighting through this whole novel, which is so so inspiring. I absolutely LOVED her!
I am so happy that I randomly picked this up at my Barnes and Noble run, the cover drew me in and so did the synopsis. Everything about this book is so satisfying. The world building and the descriptions are beautifully put together and then on top of it all, you have amazing characters whether they’re the good guys or the villains.
I really hope there will be a sequel to this, but if not, I could be content with the ending.
