    Long ago, so the stories say, the old-fathers came to Nanagada through a worm's hole in the sky. Looking for a new world to call their own, they brought with them a rich mélange of cultures, religions, and dialects from a far-off planet called Earth. Mighty were the old-fathers, with the power to shape the world to their liking - but that was many generations ago, and what was once known has long been lost.

    Looooooooooong lead in before the action starts.

    If you read any of my other reviews, you will quickly realize but I have a short attention span. Most of the books I enjoy start off pretty fast and t..Show More »

    The Benevolent Satrapy rule an empire of 48 worlds, linked by thousands of wormholes strung throughout the galaxy. Human beings, while technically "free", mostly skulk around the fringes of the Satrapy, struggling to get by. The secretive alien Satraps tightly restrict the technological development of the species under their control. Entire worlds have been placed under interdiction, cut off from the rest of the universe.

    As good as, or better than, book 1

    A well tailored addition to the series with it's own story arc well integrated into the overall arc of the series. As with the first, there is a sati..Show More »

    Welcome to Chilo, a planet with corrosive rain, crushing pressure, and deadly heat. Fortunately, 14-year-old Timas lives in one of the domed cities that float 100,000 feet above the surface, circling near the edge of a monstrous perpetual storm. Above the acidic clouds the temperature and pressure are normal. But to make a living, Timas like many other young men, is lowered to the surface in an armored suit to scavenge what he can.

    So much more than your typical space opera

    I really enjoyed this book. There's more political drama in this one- but plenty of battles & action as well. (lots of zombies) I like the massive t..Show More »

    Fantastic Return to Xenowealth
