I was not sure what to expect from this book. I read some of the reviews which I always find helpful. This book is a delightful blend of science fiction and fantasy. I think everyone can identify with the young Baron as he struggles to find his place and purpose in life. He has delusions of granduer but no real prospects of accomplishing them. He has real physical problems but his strength of character and sense of humor bring him the recognition and respect he seeks. He blunders and bungles his way successfully and has you cheering him on for his guts and personal values. Would that we all were so endowed. A great read for young and old.
Intriguing, action-packed, surpirsing
On Eros when Miller and Holden realize what is happening and their escape back to the ship that was supposed to leave them behind.
I have not listened to other performances by Jefferson Mays but would select a book to based on his intrepretive reading. He has a way of seamlessly transitioning you from one scene to another that makes is seem like a tale you are telling yourself.
When Miller found Juliette Mao and was able to get through to her in her transformed state. In his sacrifice he found redemption.
A terrific story line. I am glad there are sequels. This is just too good a story to end in one book. Great read.
The basis of the story in interesting. I found it to be a titillating romance story wrapped in emotional pschology of relationships, wrapped in fantasy lore.. Not what I was looking for but I thought I would give it a try.
Wow! The perfect blend of my favorite reading, SciFi and detective mystery. Very creative view of a future world and human activity in it. Encompasses all of our weaknesses and magnifies the best and the worst in human nature. I look forward to the next one. Graphic sexually but not gratutiously so. If that makes you squeamish then this is not for you. I loved the reader. Very talented writer and perfectly complimented by the reader. Wow!I can hardly wait to listen to the next in the series.
