About this deal

A multilayered, wildly entertaining story…Ashton is a talented storyteller and MICKEY7 has something for everyone while also putting a fresh spin on the idea of clones. This is an engaging plot-driven novel that reads like a decent SF movie that doesn't want to get bogged down with anything too deep or depressing. Mickey7 might not be the most complex or technical sci-fi book, but it is still entertaining and fascinating. Also because, well, look at the title of my blog and tell me why I might be interested in the story. Meanwhile, there are numerous problems arising on the planet, primarily lack of resources, and the threat if curious monster bugs.

Somewhere around the middle of the book I started to wonder about uneven pacing and lack of meaningful plot progression. But when the super angry base commander gets word that something is up, the Mickeys will need to accelerate a plan for figuring out the true purpose of Mickey. This is finely tuned and the balance so well struck that I feel the need to emphasise how much I appreciated it when it came to the flow of the story. But this was the one that had humor, great science fiction, action, so much wit, twists, touching moments, and so much more!There was this giant centipede-like creature with multiple mandibles, and I thought I had to do something with that. I was taught to make sure that the heart of the story is the characters and their interactions and not focus too hard on the science.

The humor and light-hearted tone of this book was easy to get into and the conversations between the Mickeys were a highlight, as you can imagine.There’s a bulge where there shouldn’t be one, pressing against the fabric just at the point where my glove meets the sleeve of my outer thermal. Mickey7 is an "expendable" space traveler sent on a near-certain-death mission to colonize the ice world Niflheim. Only, he manages to survive, but by the time he makes his way back to the colony base, Mickey8 had already been created.
