2.0 out of 5 stars A load of old tosh, 4 Mar 2014
By 
This review is from: Absorption (Ragnarok 1) (Paperback)
I gave up after about 80 pages. Lots of thinly-written, slow-moving threads with forgettable characters set in different times and places. I guess eventually the threads begin to link up into some overarching plot, but I got the impression the author knows he's got three books to write and is pacing the story accordingly. I was quite enjoying the thread about the Pilots, and would have liked to read a book about them, but I just couldn't be bothered with all the other tosh.

No sign of the promised high-tech space warfare. And he seemed to be trying to work in Hitler as a character, or as a tool of the darkness, which I didn't like.

In style this is like a combination of the worst bits of Stephen Baxter and Hannu Rajaniemi.
