Smashwords book reviews by Robin Barayuga

    So this is my first review on SW so I guaranty it won't be very helpful. Saying that though, this is the book which compelled me to write an actual review. Anyway, absolutely love the character dynamics within the novel. Even the secondary characters get a good showing. I just hope Mr Asher writes more books in the series. I don't actually know if this is part of a series or whether it's just a standalone novel. So after reading this extremely good novel, I plan to buy Mr Asher's other books. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE turn this book into a longstanding series!!!

    This is a very well written and well thought out book. The crafting of the characters and the society in which they live in is exquisite! As another reviewer commented the tech is well done and constructed with deliberate care. This is very much a character driven book. Although, there is action in the book, it doesn't fall into the trap of thinking that explotions and guns make everything better. Like I said, the mainstay and driving principle behind the success of this book are the characters. It says in the author's note at the end of the book, it took him seven years to complete the project. You can tell, as he was meticulous in his crafting of every nuance within the novel. Well done Mr Harris! I take my hat off to you sir!
