About Jon Lang

I was raised deep in the Midwest, where the land is sold in acres and the horses, cows and chickens outnumber people. I fled as soon as I could by going to UC-Berkeley, and ended up graduating with a degree in Japanese with a few years of molecular cell biology on the side. Fleeing even further, my travels took me to Tokyo, where I discovered the best sushi and the worst weather. The wind has now blown me to Seattle, where I can be found running down Pike St. yelling, “Go Seahawks!” at the top of my lungs, in turn scaring small animals and children.

Review by: nigil on Jan. 7, 2019 :
An immersive space opera for any space-action fan, different enough to stand out and other enough to stay remembered.
Following Ashra's coming of age is very interesting, and a bit sad, and though it's not truly a military sci-fi story, there is lots of fighting action to be had.

The plot is solid and the story well-rounded, in a unique universe; and as a definite standalone story, you won't be missing an unwritten sequel (in this age of serials).

Though I felt it to be a bit two-dimensional –with the good heroes fighting the evil-empire villains–, and some fights felt a bit comic-style (with super-powered 'boss-level' enemies), that's only really apparent in retrospect; and then again Ashra has quite the super-power herself, so that's only fair.

Had trouble putting it down, read through it in 2 days. Lots of action and a interesting plot. Hope we will get a sequel, as I feel like there is more to explore. Overall a great sci-fi story.

Review by: Richard Gates on June 19, 2015 :
I enjoyed this book. I am going to find the sequel. A hectic and involving story which kept reminding me of a film, not the story but the style. It was also a good long read. I want to be in the world for a good chunk of time.

Plot: very good. Allows reader to think ahead.
Writing: Very good, almost what I call vision writing. That which allows reader to visualize the story line.
Character description: Fairly good, with more writing author, I believe, will improve.
Overall rating 4/5
