Title: SeededSeeded
Author: Benjamin Descovich

Rating: 4/5 stars

“Five years travelling faster than light in a colony transport goes slower than you think, but the credits are worth it. Captain Ona and her crew are ready to collect a tidy sum for delivering the Flock to Paradise. On the cusp of seeding the colony they encounter a force that will forever change them. This is what happens when science collides with fantasy.” (description from Goodreads)

This story surprised me. I was reading most of it, enjoying it, yet wasn’t sure if it was going to strike me as something special. At first it seemed a simple “Here’s a crew on a ship with a mission. Something’s going to go wrong.” type story. And, yes, that’s what it is, but there was an element added toward the end that made the story a little less self-contained, a little better for me as a reader.

Even though I saw part of the ending coming, I wasn’t able to predict where the author raised the stakes and really grabbed me. It was a fun twist on a colonization theme.
