This book is the second "Backworld's" book, and I read it directly after reading the first (and if you haven't read M. Pax's The Backworlds, go read it now. It might even still be free.)

Stopover at the Backworld's Edge is a great read. There's plenty of action, beautiful imagery (and I've consistently appreciated M. Pax's ability to create a succint, somehow perfect metaphor), engaging characters, and just a touch of romance. It's consistently suprising, with quite a few twists and turns, and a number of rewards for anyone that's read the first book. I was swept up quickly and read it straight till the end.

I always read the reviews before buying a book, and appreciate very much those who write them. So, when I review a book I try to do my best to be honest. And honestly... this was a BLAST to read!
I thought the first book in the series (The Backworlds) was a fun read... I was delighted to find this one topped it! Once I started, I didn't want to stop. M. Pax has the ability to create a vivid new universe inside my own imagination. The bio-engineered beings, the worlds, customs, ships, even clothing and food seem so real.

It was a fun romp through space and other worlds, with fascinating characters of all "kinds". I'd even venture to call Chocolate a character in THIS story! Danger, betrayal, spies, frizzers, gender-morphing beings, revenge, cruelty, friendship and tenderness... and of course, chocolate. ;-)

The story had so many surprise turns I had to buckle my seat belt. I'm not fond of "predictable" books. Can we say Borrriiinnnggg? But NOT THIS ONE! The characters, the pickles they got into, the worlds they were on--and inside of--had me shaking my head at the authors wild imagination. It had me asking "how do they THINK UP of these things??!!" And I thoroughly appreciated the ending. And no... no hints.

Yep... loved it. Honestly. Can't wait to read the next one in the series. And the next time I sit down to have my hot tea and chocolate... I think I'll take a long pause and remember what happened in this story!! :-O

Stopover at the Backworlds' Edge was an exciting race through Craze's world at Pardeep Station. Without giving away the ending, I know you'll have a spine tingling adventure filled with love, hate and betrayal. I couldn't wait to read it and now I can't wait for the next one to come out.
Author M. Pax has a winner here! It's definitely a great read!
