I stopped writing reviews, mainly because "If you can't say anything nice..." but I like this take on space faring sci-fi. A unique view of space travel based on theories and concepts accepted in our current knowledge of physics. The characters and plot I find enjoyable and exciting. Buying the next one presently.45
The book overall is good . To much techno babble that prattles on with info we garnered from the first two books in the series. Maybe to feel pages ?35
Such detail, such creativity, such a great story!55
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. I like the technology described and how it's being utilized throughout the story. Nice descriptions and settings that really give the reader a feel for how a battle might be fought with vessels capable of near light speed.55
Like all of Ian's books, I just could not put it down. Great characters and as near realistic as great SiFi can get. Hate to have to wait for the next one of his Excellent adventures. Enjoy, Bob C.55
