This review is from: On the Steel Breeze (Poseidons Children Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
Powerful story telling and strong characterisation as you would expect from Alastair Reynolds. He does well to retain a connected narrative across two different time frames and light years of space without invoking faster than light communication. Unfortunately, elsewhere the hard science is less than credible and his resolution of the central dilemma facing his protagonists smacks of "I woke up and it was all a dream!" That said, still a great read and we can all look forward to the loose ends being tied up in part three.
