Reviews of The Omniverse Through Darkness and Stars by Steve Karmazenuk

Bill Taylor reviewed on Nov. 23, 2011

I thoroughly enjoyed Steve's first one in the series, and this one, "Through Darkness and Stars". Both belong to the category of those rare books that I have happened upon over the years, in which I had trouble in putting down before the read was completed. I found the storyline fascinating and in my opinion, Steve did a fine job in bringing the characters to life. No matter how hard I try, I cannot fault this author for anything. Both of the stories are excellent and I am looking forward to future creations from this talented writer.

As a Smashwords author myself (Elephant Park), I truly enjoyed this book, realizing what a complex undertaking it was. There are a few typos, but I could review my own work until the end of time, and there would still be errors. I must say I also read the book's predecessor, the Unearthling, naturally out of order.

I like the millenial theme of long spaceflight in SF, and have read many versions, this being one of the best, and most all encompassing, by making clear how Earth got to the point it was in the first volume. It deals well with human nature, has some great characters, and even deals extensively with the topics of religion and illogic. The science is reasonable if necessarily suppositional, and ecology is not ignored as it cannot be in this kind of plot.

This is not some Star Wars swashbuckling cartoon but rather a thoughtful book that is great fun too, and one might just learn a few things from it. I look forward to the next volume in the series.
