4.0 out of 5 stars
Nice storyline, Strong Characters, Very Imaginative

This is a very large book. As an avid reader, the size of a book doesn't normally phase me. It took me about 3 months to finish this one. I truly enjoyed the storyline. The biggest issue I had with following this was that the beginning was so heavy with character details; they were introduced and would then disappear for a while. When the character reemerged, I had to go back for a refresher. I loved the detail in describing the characters. The author made his vision very clear throughout the book. I appreciated the obvious respect for the female characters, showing them as strong and not helpless. The beginning part of the book felt like it was dragging because of the heavy detail, but once past all that I was on the edge of my seat to find out what was coming next. Overall this is worth reading whether you're a science fiction fan or not. I am looking forward to the second book!
