"Gilly, Talia, Anders, and Jackson are astronauts captaining a new and supposedly indestructible ship in humanity's war against an alien race. Confined to the ship for years, each of them holding their own secrets, they are about to learn there are threats beyond the reach of human ingenuity--and that the true nature of reality might be the universe's greatest mystery. In this near future, our world is at war with another, and humanity is haunted by its one catastrophic loss--a nightmarish engagement that left a handful of survivors drifting home through space, wracked with PTSD. Public support for the war plummeted, and the military-industrial complex set its sights on a new goal: zero-casualty warfare, made possible by gleaming new ships called Providences, powered by AI. But when the latest-launched Providence suffers a surprising attack and contact with home is severed, Gilly, Talia, Anders, and Jackson must confront the truth of the war they're fighting, the ship that brought them there, and the cosmos beyond"--… (mere)

Thanks to the publisher and Goodreads for providing me a copy for review.

Since I understand that my copy was an advanced edition, I'm willing to forgive the typos and small editing errors and rate it the 4 stars it deserves (since those will, hopefully, be fixed for publication).

Providence is the type of ship Gilly, Jackson, Anders, and Beanfield have signed up to crew for 4 long years, fighting an alien race among the stars. Communication is sparse, and the ship is it's own unknowable entity. When they move deeper into space, they're all forced to reckon with the two alien species in ways they never expected.

Barry's writing is tight and tense, and the multiple perspectives helps (though I wish we got a little more insight into Jackson. The salamanders are truly alien, in type and interactions and strangeness. Equally strange and intriguing is the ship: the crew doesn't really seem to be necessary, and at times the ship seems to be working against them.

Plenty of mysteries and twists, it's a fun and engaging sci-fi novel. ( )

The plot is not altogether unique, but the action is believable, the characters well-developed, and that action non-stop. Thoroughly entertaining! ( )

I expect a lot from Max Barry. I know that when I read his books, I'm going to be blown away. I was not disappointed with this book. This book will be a re-read at some point. I know I missed important parts - I was reading so quickly.

It's hard for me to write about books that I love because so many things have to work in unison to make me love it. I tried to work out what I loved, but it read like blahblahblah, so I deleted it. ( )

DNF'd the audiobook at 23%. The story had some promising elements, and I feel like I maybe bailed just before it got good, but at that point, it had lost me. There really wasn't enough going on to engage me or keep me reading.
