Shaman and the Stars
5 Reasons to Read This Book
Mix of genres. Welcome on board if you find it difficult to choose: science fiction or urban fantasy, mystic detective story or modern prose, but you want everything and at once.

Characters. Meet the crew of the San Gabriel spaceship: everyone here has their own personal demons, but you certainly would like to drink a cup of coffee with them.
With demons, of course.

World and atmosphere. Beware: the world of high technology has a dark side — the land of shadows, where mysterious Moths live at the reality’s edge, and spirits can appear to those who know how to look wider. It doesn’t matter what you are looking for — traces of mysterious ancient civilization, evidence of dangerous government experiments or The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything: this path will be as confusing as possible.

Main character. A depressed and introverted protagonist on the verge of an existential crisis. So relatable.

New Weird. This novel has strong Firefly series vibes, and will appeal to fans of China Miéville, Neil Gaiman, Donna Tartt, Andre Norton books.
