3.0 out of 5 stars Acceptable but slow, 31 Jan. 2010
This review is from: Irons in the Fire (Chronicles/Lescari Revolutn 1) (Paperback)
Authors either thrust the reader into the heart of the matter with their worlds or inevitably take their time to carefully build the world around the characters and its with this second option that Juliet has gone with the first offering in a new series by her for Solaris.

Whilst it is skilfully and beautifully created it is incredibly slow, plodding pace that is there to set the sequence of events within along with bickering politics that will unfortunately turn many a reader off from her writing style.

However, if you happen to love a carefully built plot that will lead up to events demonstrating that she plays for keeps then its going to be a series that will snare your imagination as you await the next novel in the series. With luck (and with most of the background established within this offering) the plot will pick up pace and the careful character creation will go on to prove a resounding success. But for me personally, I'm going to hold off either giving this a big thumbs up or a thumb across the throat (as the Roman's did) until I get to see where the next novel leads.
