As a avid Sci-Fi reader for a number of years I am very pleasantly surprised at the depth and quality of this book. The action flows with out the herky-jerky movement that even some of the Masters of the genre have been know to use to illustrate their storylines. While some of the character maturation is a little 2 dimensional, thats just me picking nits. Overall a excellent novel and a author I will watch closely in the future. The 6 million dollar question "Will I buy the book(s)?" Heck Yeah!!
