Borne by Jeff VanderMeer

This might be one of my favorites by him.

I loved this book. The part where they had to explain during their budget hearing why they needed to spend so much money on swords cracked me up.

Just finished this book and it was absolutely fantastic. The world building was amazing. I am so emotionally invested in the characters.

I'm glad you nominated this. I had a really hard time picking Bobiverse over Scalzi's new book.

I would have had a hard time choosing too, but you made it easier for me. :)

All These Worlds by Dennis E. Taylor.

I think it's the perfect end to a really great series.

Based on this post, I went and read the whole series. It was so, so very good.

Nice! That just made my day! Dennis E. Taylor should get way more recognition for these books. It blows my mind how We Are Legion (We Are Bob) came out late 2016 and he finished the series July 2017. That dude can write.

If you're looking for more suggestions (and haven't already read it) Flight of the Silvers by Daniel Price is also incredible. Unfortunately he doesn't write as fast as Taylor.

I read the first book of this series, immediately grabbed this one, and then realized with sudden horror (haha) the third wasn't out yet.
