My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When you think to yourself, “Self, I need more Bobbie Draper in my life,” and of course you will because you are breathing air and are sensible as fuck, go crack open this stellar little side-read.
Gods of Risk is a jaunt around Mars as hosted by Bobbie’s nephew, David, a brilliant teenager on track to a solid position in Mars’ elite university if he doesn’t ruin things with his side venture cooking drugs. Ah teenage impotence. Bobbie is living with them because she’s between gigs, as it were, and it’s a lucky thing for David as his side venture goes sideways against the backdrop of increasing tensions between Earth and Mars.
Yes, you need more Gunny Draper in your life, no question.
