I read this a while ago, forgot to post a review, came back to see if the sequel was out and decided to put my omission right. I've been searching Smashwords for decent indie space opera for a while and this is certainly one of the better ones. At heart, it is a political thriller, with overtones of military sci-fi, strange aliens, religious conflicts and a whole heap of complicated personal relationships. Most of the large number of cast are pleasingly well-rounded characters, though there were a few who were not particularly memorable, which led to a bit of head-scratching when they reappeared. The few improbable plot devices were resolved by the twist at the end, which though not entirely unexpected was nevertheless effective.

The author got so wrapped up in "world building" he forgot he was supposed to be telling an actual story. I mean come on, I know what sand looks like, no need to spend page after page telling me. Sorry but at 10 percent there still was no story so... delete time.
This was a set your price book I set to zero and I still over paid.
