I Wish I’d Read…The Vanished Birds, by Simon Jimenez

This article is part of the ‘I Wish I’d Read’ series, celebrating the many awesome books I missed out on thanks to a particularly stressful year and an extended hiatus.

The Vanished Birds had me at ‘space opera,’ as do most books in the sub-genre. The description promised an epic character-driven piece that shifts from vastly differing individual stories into a group narrative that’s both compelling and perhaps heartwarming. I love the concept and the only think I love more than space operas is solid character work amidst well-done world building. I’m hoping that I can eventually get to this one in the future, if only to see how these characters meld together in what I’m sure is a top notch narrative. I’d love to hear more about this book from those of you who were able to red it! Read more about the author and book below, or purchase a copy for yourself. And of course, a big thank you to Del Rey for the free review copy!

NOTE: I was provided a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for my honest, unbiased review.
