I read a great deal of SF. Some of it good, some of it shockingly bad. Much in the middle. This book is well worth your time to pick up and read. Excellent, interesting characters, really cool situations they need to work through and a lot of threads which will be hopefully completed in later books.
Writing a series book is a major pain as I’m discovering writing my own SF series with the goal to try and keep the readers interested enough in where the characters end up so they want more. Mr. Arenson has accomplished exactly that. Upon buying and reading it, I promptly went and purchased pre-order of the next book in the series in anticipation of where it will lead and how problems will be solved all throughout the series.
I do have some minor technical quibbles about technology and how it is used, but then again, I am a bit of a nerd about such things. This is much to the annoyance of those around me, but don’t let it detract from your purchasing and reading it.
I can hardly wait to see what happens and how!
Thank you all,
