At the risk of facing a firing squad at dawn, this book needs further work. It's readable but it's missing the hills and valleys of story-telling that I really enjoy.
The story is a futuristic space story and revolves around Brennan Candler who is dying. Dying is uncommon in this age, Brennan has bad genes that were supposedly passed onto his daughter. Brennan is married to a famous space pilot who has abandoned him, presumably because of his dying. In a multi-year trip to somewhere, Brennan finds a scientist who is specializing in his disorder and works with her to reverse the problem.
The good: There were no grammar errors and it seemed relatively well proofed. The storyline has potential.
The not so good: A). The characters, with their unique names, get confusing, especially in the beginning of the book. B). Significant chunks of years pass without reference. The reader is left to fill in the details on what might have happened in that stretch of time. This could easily be resolved by a sentence or two that references those lost years. C). More importantly, there is no build up to conflict or character development, there are no hills and valleys. For example, a murder is committed in the book. There is no conflict nor hints of problems leading up to the event, just that the character was killed, with a brief, choppy explanation afterwards. If things were alluded to leading up to the various event(s), it would strengthen and tighten the book.
This is only my opinion. The book is short enough that others could read it and see if they reach a different conclusion.
