Wow, this is a good one. It’s so refreshing to read exciting novels from new authors and this has been one of the more pleasant surprises in my world for some time. This first-of-series book really is well-written and very easy to read. I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it turned out to be, no offence intended! The synopsis was obviously good enough to catch my attention and the story that followed it didn’t disappoint me in any way.
It’s a solid story with strong characters and the world-building is excellent, the characters have good depth and their various motivations are explored thoroughly. The storytelling, especially the action, is as good as anything else in the contemporary sci-fi genre that I’ve read in recent years.
