The Disasters Reviews
The novel didn't live up to my expectations.
These people have their shit surprisingly together when faced with imminent doom. How the hell did they end up as washouts?
THE DISASTERS was far from a disaster. Good, got it out of my system, and now we can all move on from that joke.
"Anyone have any better ideas? Useful diversion tactics?"
"I've been told I'm a hell of a dancer. You find me a table, I'll create a diversion you won't forget."

This is a super fun read. Readers get a great look at the anxiety and fear of a young pilot coming into their own. They're surrounded by others in similar states, but with vastly different externalizations of similar fears and needs fears.

This was really fun! And I say that as someone who's not usually into sci-fi. I'm actually really curious how the Muslim rep is to someone who knows, because it's a surprisingly big aspect of the book. But yeah, basically, I love Quirky Squads on Missions books and this is one of those and I found it delightful. On-page bi MC, too.
Can we talk about just how much fun this book is?
I love it. Seriously. Light, fun adventure reads are the best and M.K. England’s The Disasters is no exception! Not only is there an awesome diverse cast, but I love how fun and enjoyable and heartwarming this was!
I know some sci-fi is super doom and gloom, but this was that sort of fun adventure story you just love snuggling down in a cozy arm chair and devouring! It lets you live in another world (or, in this case, out of Earth) for a ...more
This book has all the fun things in it: quirky characters, diversity that doesn’t make a big deal out of diversity, great witty banter, adventure galore, great world building, and it feels like Firefly meets Guardians of the Galaxy. Really hard to put down.
The main character, Nax, has an incredibly original voice, and is extremely relatable. When he and the other rejects of the Space Academy are in a transport back to Earth, they witness a huge crime and are chased by the perpetrators who try t ...more
I just...really like this cover.
