If I could jump off the world … (The Family Business by Charles Stross)

… I would be one of the people Charles Stross writes about in the Merchant Princes series. Some people can switch between alternative realities. I just started reading the first book: The Family Business. Miriam finds out that she is one of those with the ability to change worlds. She also finds out about her heritage …

This is one of the best first lines i read: Ten and a half hours before a mounted knight with a machine gun tried to kill her,
tech journalist Miriam Beckstein lost her job.

Did I tell you before I like female protagonists? I Do especially if they are as interesting as Miriam.

The first book ends rather suddenly. I’ll start on book 2: The Hidden Family Now
