Downtime by Cynthia Felice

DowntimeDowntime by Cynthia Felice

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s been a while since I read any Cynthia Felice and, while she doesn’t quite reach the heights of her sometime writing partner Connie Willis, she does manage a blend of Science Fiction and Romance that I always enjoy. Her Science Fiction (spaceships, other planets etc.) is the kind I tend to like anyway, and the romantic elements of her stories never descend into embarrasment – they are simply natural parts of her characters’ lives and often with a twist – in this case the couple having aged at different rates during their separation, he by 10 years, she by 30. Add into their lives the complications of impending interstellar war and betrayal in the ruling elite and you have a fast moving, intriguing and involving story. Well worth searching out.
