A thoroughly enjoyable piece of science fiction
on 16 June 2012
Further: Beyond The Threshold is a thoroughly enjoyable book with just a few issues.
Chris Roberson paints an intriguing view of the universe some 12000 years in the future. All viewed from the point of the hero (who is only from a few hundred years in the future) there is a feeling of great depth to the world, however one of the issues was that a large proportion of the book was given over to describing this fantastic future.
The story proper is good, with character development and good twists, if a bit predictable. The story felt somewhat short because so much of the book is given to a meandering focus describing the world and histories of the universe.
It feels like it is going to be the beginning of a fascinating series, though that may be wishful thinking on my part!
To sum up I would recommend this book to any sci-fi fans. I would have given it 5 Stars but it felt a bit un-focused at times, but this adds to the depth and charm of the story.
