Complex world building, interesting aliens and a rollicking good tale. What more could you ask for?
I enjoyed Edward's journey, and meeting Festina again. The villains were insanely evil and our Explorers with some help from the inscrutable red moss Balog, gave as good as they got.
I liked the Mandasars though couldn't quite visualize them, and liked learning more about the Navy. All in all a satisfying read.
