I have had Marrow on my wishlist for a long time. I have had the second book in the Marrow series, The Well of Stars, for a few months now, but little good that does me if I don’t have the first book. I found it in a small thrift store in an even smaller mountain town tucked high up in the Colorado Rockies this past weekend.

Marrow is about the discovery of a mysterious ship which is discovered by humans far in the future. The ship is so immense that is about the size of a giant planet. Because humans in this distant future are almost immortal, they can spend hundreds of year exploring the immense ship without aging or getting sick. Then one day they find a planet tucked away at the center of this ship and the real mysteries begins to unfold.
