5.0 out of 5 stars A very pleasant surprise, 12 Jan 2008
By 
This review is from: Off Armageddon Reef (Mass Market Paperback)
Earlier reviews describe the content well, and the context in terms of earlier books by this author. To me this author is new as I had become increasingly limited (sad I know) to pursuing novels from a few trusty writers - Iain M Banks, Hamilton and above all C J Cherryh. So this particular book came to me as a complete surprise and I found it to be a superb read. Complex, gripping, satisfying and promising much more fun. In particular it was a pleasure to see an idea, that in part has been tried before, of seeking to leverage a medieval culture towards one much more highly advanced, developed so well. In contrast, K J Parker's 'Engineer' trilogy has been far less satisfying in every way, even though it initially held so much promise. So perhaps not an entirely new idea but executed here very well indeed, giving me much pleasure.
