Elegant, eloquent. Robert’s worlds and characters are completely engaging and believable, as is the compelling story line. My passion in the world is Scuba Diving and this read became a close second on an extended dive trip to Mexico quite recently. Love Hard Sci-Fi, and this completely exceeded my expectations! I’m rather tired of military Sci-Fi and while there is some relevant orientation here, it is thankfully not the focal point. Not a tedious moment. Given the current world situation, this story could be happening right now: from slippery, sadistic jihadists to back-biting and placating nations. Some critics have noted that the numerous characters and point of views were confusing or distracting. I completely disagree…they enhanced the intrigue and added to the many world views…but of course I was riveted throughout. If you’re into hard, sophisticated, intriguing Sci-Fi that will grip you, rip you & not let you go, then, do not let this one out of your hands!
