I have already reviewed the first book and found it was excellent. This picks up where the second left off and grips you right up to the climactic battle. Worthy of Peter F. Hamilton's Reality Disfunction trilogy. If you want to try a new space opera author then Dan Worth is for you.
Bought this as it will fit in the rear seat of a Porsche 911 as it has such a small footprint (you don't need to remove the back seat base for it to sit properly on). The plastic feels solid and boosts up well. The padding is however very thin (hence losing a star) and wouldn't do for a long journey for your little one, but for quick trips out it is great.
