Wow I loved this
I could not put it down. This is the best sci fi I have read in a long time. I cannot wait to read the next one.
100 Words or Less
Hmmmm. Can you penalize a sci-fi novel for being too easy?
This novel is enjoyable, but in the end there lacks any real challenge. The pacing, plot, characters, mysteries, etc are well done. Even expertly crafted at times. But nothing about this story seems to really stretch beyond sci-fi archives. Nothing jumps out as unique.
So, while it’s a good book, and well written, I think it fails to shake things up enough. It leaves you with a “been there, read that” feeling.
If you love sci-fi
Read this awesome book
