Short but sweet
on 31 July 2012
At only 171 pages it felt like more of a novella than a novel. I completed the book in a day - even though I completed a full days work in between reading sessions.
I felt the writing had improved dramatically from episode one and I feel that the author is definitely improving. The ending was good, a better ending than episode one but still would have benefited from punchier dialogue in the final scene.
The combat as usual was great, the space combat especially. The new characters introduced were more rounded and overall despite a slow beginning I really enjoyed reading this book. I would have given it four stars but docked a point for the shortness (its the same price as the longer episode one).
I am however really looking forward to episode three which is longer.
Despite my reservations in my review for episode one I'm now hooked on this series.
