This is an interesting kind of Sci-Fi adventure where the people traveling between worlds are developmentally behind us in their home worlds. That made for a nice change from my normal read. My only complaints with the book would be that it didn't have a lot of emotion. People made life changing decisions, others died, battles were fought, all without much excitement. I wish the author would read some John Ringo and David Weber and try to punch up the action a bit. The book also ends quite abruptly. I would have liked about another half hour with Frank as a payoff at the end of the book. That would entice the reader to get the next book in the series to see what else happens.
All in all, I enjoyed the book and would recommend it for people liking adventures
The start is a little bumpy but keep reading. The characters develop as they get to know each other. The story pulls you in until you stay up late to finish it. This book makes me with I had a MFA instead of taking all that chemistry and math so I could help with a final edit and polish. I think it could be the next great series.
A great continuation of what I hope is a series. There were a couple places that needed a little work to add more drama to the ending. I won't go into it here, spoilers. It's still a satisfying book and I can't wait for the next. If the author wanted to add one hot sex scene I am sure the PNR crowd would eat this up with a spoon. Loved it.
I truly loved this book and don't know how I will wait for volume II. What do you call this style of writing? It's not really stream of consciousness, more like the way I remember things. What someone wore, music playing, snatches of talk, the lighting. Things make more or less sense in remembering than they do in the moment. Fascinating. I love all the characters & trying to figure out what they are after and how they fit into the story. Write faster, Kip.
