Review by: Gma Mary Adkinson on March 08, 2013 :
Travel along with James, a live computer, to galaxies unknown. Beautiful, kind races are found among the stars. Although, some of the nastiest, meanest types are there, too.
Some life forms resemble dogs, cats, clouds, spiders, and human except with extra arms, like Darzula, the love of his life. Beautiful beyond compare, even if she does have four arms!
Robert has unleashed his imagination with this one! On to “The Star Queen.”

Review by: mrequecky on July 30, 2012 :
Each chapter is kind of stand-alone-ish, like a good-night chapter for each evening. Personally not my thing, but for people who like that, this is a good book.
I was a bit struck by the story-teller's very certain opinion that Great-Britain is the absolutely greatest nation on Earth and that any other country was far less great. The lost ship is a collector of great technology, never-ending life and absolute superiority, which appears to be what everyone should be aiming for and which will bring happyness...
Personally, I was a bit disappointed, but maybe I simply expected too much. Thus only two stars.
