A readable combination of romance and fantasy with some of the feel of Indiana Jones.

A science fiction adverture story with some romance. I expected more more romance, but it turned out to be great book.

"Encrypted" is one stunning tale.

Lovely intro of a cryptography genius -even including some crypto slang- breaking enemy crypto messages at wartime.
Continuing with an abduction and prison break, pirate style ship-to-ship fighting action (with cannon balls),
and culminating in a "Stargate-like" exploration of ancient alien ruins, which don't seem as abandoned as one should think!

Truly a lovely composition.

This book is a sci-fi adventure with a little bit of romance mixed in. I thought is was romance, but wasn't. My bad. Otherwise it was a good read.

Very well written. It seems longer than it is because you just have to slow down and enjoy each word. It has non stop action, plots in plots, and contents that usually 2 or 3 books would have. I would recomend this book.

There's enough straight science to balance the fantasy (artificers of magic, telepathy, telekinetics, etc.), a good plot, and excellent characters. Particularly the characters - they're interesting, believable, entertaining, and you want to follow their stories.

Enjoyable, but more a formulaic fantasy than heartfelt writing. The main characters were interesting and sympathetic and making allowances the story moved along well. Unfortunately the ending was terrible, the author got caught in his own web and dashed out a disappointing and implausible end.
