I purchased this book as part of my quest to find recently written good science fiction. Not knowing anything about it I was pleased to disover the exciting adventure in its pages.
As with most science fiction the start can be a little rough to read as you come to learn the world and the crises it is facing. The characters that evolve turn out to be all that they should be. From the horrific vilians you depise to the likeable leading characters. There are several twists and turns, enough foreshadowing is provided so you aren't blindsided but they still caught me by surprise.
The feel of the book reminded me most of War of the Worlds with a bit of the political warnings of Atlas Shrugged. The end result was an exciting adventure story that leaves your mind wondering if it could really happen.
I'll be watching for other works from this author!
