Before buying this book I read a few of the reviews (of which there are many) and was still undecided. In the end the purchase price of seventy seven pence swung it for me. There's not a lot you can buy for that price and I was happy to delete the book if I didn't find it engaging. Approaching it with an open mind I was impressed with the world the author had created which seems to have the depth and breadth required to support a developing story. And that what this book feels like - the first part of a developing story. I'm a huge fan of Stephen Donaldson's Gap Series and more recently James S A Corey's Expanse Series and this book feels like it wants to set up similar stage.
Whilst I will agree with other reviewers that the characters are not as well rounded and the science isn't as accurate as it could be, there are some inspired and novel twists that keep it interesting. There are elements that feel rushed however the balance between dialogue and narrative mean that this is a fun, fast-paced read that has you wanting more. I hope that in future books more time can be given to developing the characters without losing the sense of momentum. In short; don't expect this to be Iain M banks and you will be pleasantly surprised. I will certainly be buying the next instalment.

Great first book in a series.

I love sci-fi and this story is a great first chapter in what looks like a epic series.

Though the language used is a but simplistic, the prose flows swiftly. The style of writing reminds me a bit of David Eddings,

Missed on 5* because of the fact that I got a bit fed up of the frekk being said all the time, felt it had just been nicked from battlestar galactica's Frak.

Worth a read and look forward to book 2.

I just can't get away from the fact that the hero's nickname is Skidmark. Aren't books proofread? Why did no one bother to check what this term means in the UK? I mean, seriously, Skidmark?

I think the 1st duty of a noval is that it should entertain. This book does that quite well holding the interest with fast moving story. In the SiFi type of book it should, in my opinion, also reflect the scientific advances of the not too distance future, and show the possible problems as well as the benifits of these. Again it seems to do quite well in this area, the space battle situations seems to have a simularity to some "shoot me up" PC games, but thats seems not to be a bad thing. The "change your id by hologram chip" seems far fatched, but who knows what the future holds, and the story would have a problem without this idea. All in all a good read.

I found this to be a very entertaining book. The concept of humanity being on the brink of extinction and the anticipation of what is waiting on the other side of the wormhole was very well written. There is a depth to the characters that made me feel for them on their journey. Definitely worth a read.

I have read this series through on more than one occasion and have loved every page whilst doing so. The author really manages to grip the audience with the various twists and turns and unfortunately for me it felt like I could not put the book down. There are a grammatical errors, but I for one do not care. 5 Stars.

a lively start to the book, providing a quick relafionship with the main character but that was at fhe cost of not a lot of substance to other characters in the book.

it leaves you wanting to learn more about ethan and alara and how thy will develop.

a nice story line with a good clif hanger at the end.
