I was captivated by Gier's first in this series, "Genellan: Planetfall." The second "Genellan: In The Shadow Of The Moon," meets the expectations built by the first. Happily, readers of "In The Shadow" will get to spend lots of quality time with my favorite character -- the planet Genellan.
Buy this book. You will not be disappointed.
As always, a good read from Mr. Gier and a satisfying addition to his Genellan series. This installment by necessity spends less time on the planet Genellan, and more on Earth and FTL travel between the two.
I'd also hoped that more time would have been spent delving into the fauna and flora of Genellan, but perhaps Mr. Gier will return there; I still want to know what lies in store for the main human character, Sharl Firenze Buccari, her son Charlie, and her star-crossed love life.
