It's taken months. After a couple of breaks in the middle I finally finished this great second part of the Commonwealth saga.
Hamilton once again shows here just how great of a storyteller he is. The imagination, creativity and articulation is astounding throughout. I won't include any spoilers but suffice it to say the book is awesome. Magnificent sci-fi, action and brilliantly done suspense and humor throughout.
I literally had no idea of what to expect. Simply unpredictable edge of your seat storytelling! Wondrous exotic worlds, both complex and simple exciting characters with great depths to them. This is the fifth book of this great author's that I have read and he really is incredible. Would be nice to see some of his stories adapted for television one day!
Very well structured pace throughout with an excellent ending. Had me flipping page after page looking for more. If you like sci-fi and excellent storytelling then pick this up (and its predecessor 'Pandora's Star')
