HAMMERFALL by C.J. CHERRYH
Hammerfall - C.J. Cherryh

This is the second sci-fi book I read where the journey (in this book journeys) went on way too long. Oh, the sand, and the water problems, and the vermin, and the wind, and the sand, and the water problems, and the vermin, and the wind, and so on. I know this book has been out for awhile but maybe just saying that the same thing happened for 30 days instead of giving us a blow-by-blow would have made this book better. The dialogue/action parts (except for the journeys) was good but the monotonousness brought this book down a star.

In the 70's, I mostly got to read school library books, my aunt's endless Harlequin subscriptions and yard sale finds.  So, several of these are authors I haven't read:

 

I have all the Diadem novels by Jo Clayton (most are so yellowed and brittle -- some I had to get used in pre-Amazon and pre-eBay online searches so came that way and some were mine).  I've been putting off finishing because hard for my old lady eyes to read.

The Faded Sun: Kesrith - C.J. Cherryh

It took me a bit to get into this book. It is a little slow moving (not an action-fest) as it gives a lot of backstory for the next two novels in the trilogy. It reminded me some of Dune, but never felt like a knockoff. If you have read Dune and decide to read this book, you will see what I mean. I don't think this book can be read as a standalone story. You will want to read the follow-on books as I will most definitely do.
