*received free ebook copy in exchange for honest review*

I found The Northern Star: The Beginning to be an enjoyable read, especially the further into the book I got. I did notice a couple grammatical errors, but they certainly didn't detract from the story. The future the author depicted certainly felt all to plausible.

The only part I found a little lacking was in terms of character development. Most of the characters felt, not completely one dimensional but close to it. Even when the author attempted to flesh them out, it only seemed to confuse me more. I could not really get a grasp on several of the characters and their motivations. In some ways they didn't seem to react in ways that would be natural to the type of character I understood them to be.

Overall I felt that The Northern Star: The Beginning by Mike Gullickson is certainly worth the read for fans of Sci-Fi and speculative fiction.
