*Note: I received an advance copy of this book in return for an honest review.
This fast-paced book pulls the reader through space, time, and the complexities of inner space with its multiple settings, viewpoints, and ideas. I didn’t realize when I started it that it was the first in a series, so don’t look for everything to be nicely tied up at the end–there’s obviously a lot more story to come.
The three viewpoint characters offer very divergent views on life and society, which keeps the book interesting, although it does exact a bit of a price in that I didn’t feel I connected with any of the main characters as strongly as I might have liked to. That said, it’s a compelling story that kept me reading to see what was going to happen next, with intriguing glimpses into other worlds, cultures, and future technologies. Recommended if you like fast action, futuristic settings, and deep conspiracies.
