This is the way the world ends for the last time... Broken Earth is book 1 in the Argurma Salvager series and it was a really enjoyable read from beginning to end. While I love alien books they normally feature blue men, grey men, some with horns or tails, I don't recall ever reading a book where the male looks alien. One comparison to the Broken Earth Trilogy would be the movie Cloud Atlas-- a story where characters' lives inter-twine across multiple time frames.
What a hoot. We returned for dinner and were ate meals that we have tried elsewhere ... High quality Broken Earth gifts and merchandise.
