on April 20, 2012 :
After his first novel, ARGO, Rick Griffin once again will enchant his fans with this tale of pirates, rebels, and an original concept of tyrants.
Again Rick proves his strength with the technicalties and the descriptions. You have the impression you are there, in the middle of the action.
His weakness, in this specific context, is the short space the novel offers. Not enough time to sympathize with the characters, to fully understand them and appreciate the reasons that motivate them. Given a longer piece, we could even appreciate the tyrants, they *do* make an interesting species...
But it's a minor flaw. This book is thoroughly enjoyable!
