Top critical review
This is not a series for those of you that like and actioned packed sci-fi adventure.
on 8 October 2015
I bought this book on the basis that it spanned millions of years with various stories intertwined and ultimately leading to its conclusion. The story lines did indeed live up to this. But, and there is a but. Great swathes of this book lends itself to long winded back stories and detailed explanations as to the characters current circumstances. While the story itself is readable, I found myself skipping whole pages hoping that it was going somewhere, I did end up buying books 2 and 3 in the hope the story line might pick up. But in the end I felt it was all just an unbelievable anti-climax. Based on the fact that one of the characters is from a millions of years old star spanning civilisation, you would have thought they would have come up with a better solution. If you are looking for an actioned packed space adventure then this is not for you, you will feel robbed at the end. If you are looking for and in-depth, time spanning, love story, then go for it.
