I was disappointed
on 10 December 2011
I read the first book in this series, and it was reasonable well-paced, and held my interest.
Unlike the other reviewers though, I was disappointed in this one. I thought the pace was slow, and the focus of the original Awakening moved from the superhuman abilities of the participants to an almost tangential story of trying to get a satellite into orbit, without any real explanation of what the satellite was all about (other than a throwaway line referring to the old 'star wars' project).
About half way through the book, I was sorely tempted to abandon it. Having persevered to the end I just became more and more frustrated by Walkers infallibility, a feeling of 'what on earth's the endpoint supposed to be', and by the end totally lost interest. I'm afraid this will be my last excursion into this series.
