Good plot, clunky writing,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Exiles: The Progenitor Trilogy, Book One (Progenitors Universe) (Kindle Edition)
The plot is first class, often with unexpected twists and enough to keep going through a trilogy. However (the dreadful editing apart), the characters are wooden and keep stating the obvious, everything is spelled out - and sometimes not too realistically. I fear this is the bad writing that gives sci-fi a bad name (in contrast to authors like Simon Morden and Iain M Banks).
There is also some seriously bad science - even allowing for this being Sci-Fi. For example, the planet lying between two suns with a locked rotation is described as having polar seas and an equator - sorry, it would have a 'terminator' where both suns were low in the sky, no poles and be nothing like how it was described.
All this said, I enjoyed the plot and skipped the boring bits.
