All I can say is: MORE, MORE, MORE! I read this book in just under an hour, and I want more of this rich, interesting world. I loved the characters, the background, and the villains. I loved everything about it. The pace moved right along steadily, with the writing not bogged by down unnecessarily long histories and description of this new world. It was so easy to suspend my disbelief and really immerse myself in the world Carlson created, so kudos to the author! The only reason it isn’t a full 5 stars is because I wish it was longer. More time imprisoned, more subtle fighting with the Big Bad, more everything.
I’d definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a fast-paced, tension-filled sci-fi read! Well done. You’ve got a fan in me.
