I absolutely loved this book. I did find it hard to remember all the different characters at first (as another reviewer also wrote), but once I knew them, they were old friends. I am anxiously awaiting tne release of the next book, Render.
I have fallen in love with this series! So far I have only read Spinward Fringe Broadcase 0: Origins, but I plan on buying the rest of the series and enjoying every single book. I have to agree with another reviewer who said they thought they had found a lost classic, this series really does evoke a Star Trek/Star Wars feeling. Parts of it also made me think of Heinlein, the way his characters were so close to each other, and the affection between Valent and his AI Alice. I am looking forward to starting the other 6 (soon to be 7) books. Thank you Mr. Lalonde!
