I really enjoyed this continuation of the story started in Controlled Descent. My favorite part was the growing relationship between two characters pa..Show More »rticularly, one old, one new. The story is well-written, flows beautifully, and comes to a satisfying conclusion. My one distraction was the overuse of personification. At times the cast seemed even bigger than it was because so many of the characters' emotions were personified. The narrator has some noticeable vocal patterns he falls into and this was most obvious in the first part of the book. Near midway, he slows down and really improves, to the point that I could forget I was listening to someone reading and just enjoy the story. Overall, this was a great story and audiobook. I'd recommend it for folks who enjoy thrillers and science fantasy!
