I've enjoyed SF for over 50 years now. And this is some of the best. The technical details, the action, the character interplay are all wonderful. My attention was held to the point that I put in a few late nights just to get a little further along in the story. I shall now re-read both Vol. 1 and 11 right now just to savor some of the character development, action and dialogue. I shared with my wife the basis of the work and even though she is not a SF reader - she as I, appreciated the moral concept, the depth of character, the plot cohesion, the clearly Good and clearly Bad characters. I too shall be looking for Vol. III and also taking a good look at some of Trigili's other works. I perhaps am most appreciative of his work being what I would simply call - clean - thus making it so much more enjoyable.

Just finished the 2nd volume and it's even better than the first one!! Highly recommended read, especially if you liked the first one.

Started reading this series and found myself drawn to the series of human people realizing through the course of the book that they were gifted with special powers. Thoroughly enjoyed.

For science fiction or fantasy I gravitate towards novels based on psi etc and I must admit this series is one of the best that I've read. It's a series that you cannot put down because the story line entices you to continue reading and it's so believable. Excellent!

I'm not a big sci-fi fan, but after book one I looked forward to book two and I was not disappointed. Good plot, easy to follow, and hard to put down....I now am looking forward to book three.

A great read that is not your typical smut filled sci-fi novel. Very enjoyable and very personable characters. Very clean with no swear words or excessive violence.
