Starship Relic by Darcy Troy Paulin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The planet Grailliyn is the home of a human society who know they did not evolve there but have no real answers to where they come from or how they came to be on this demanding world. They do have all manner of media which tells of Earth and movies that survived whatever happened are still very popular even if the experiences on film have no direct relation to the people that live on Graillyn. A tradition arose where young people as their last act before adulthood take a survey, this was intended to be a journey to seek out answers from across the globe to who and how the people came to be, this however is often not now the case, a few weeks on a warm beach qualifies.
However a young man named Max has travelled to the Far North and trained his own "crab" sled and ventures into wilderness armed with his long lost (assumed dead) patents journals and a clue that they found something wonderous. It's safe to say that what Max found changed the path of his life forever and set in motion a domino effect which will change how everyone looks at themselves, this world and their future.
Starship Relic was a fun and entertaining read, I like the scifi elements which merged into a well designed world which housed this portion of humanity and I've gone straight into reading the second novel, says it all really.
