Plot/Storyline: 3 ½ Stars

The storyline is written with frequent flashbacks that help us understand some of the characters and also help us understand the complexities of the lives these characters lived and are living. The storyline flips back and forth through time to mimic the theme of the novel. Although, this is really science fiction, it has the quality of a contemporary story. The author anchors the characters firmly in the present/future, but she uses the narrative to bring the past to life. The writer doesn't confuse the reader, however, with these changes. You always are well aware when the timeline shifts. Most of the different storylines pretty much follow through to the end of the novel.

Colonel Kwan, however, introduces a storyline about halfway through the novel that is left totally unresolved. None of the characters or the object of the storyline ever mention what Colonel Kwan introduces to the reader. One of the characters present when this line is introduced would surely have commented at the time or later to another character, but that never happens. This just doesn't fit into the rest of the plot. The relationship between Colonel Kwan and one of the other characters is never fully explained either. These two problems with the plot leave the reader hanging in limbo. However, this is a very good read, and whatever flaws you find in this novel, none of them should stop you from reading this wonderful piece.

Characters: 5 Stars

In this area the author is very thorough. All of the characters in this novel are fully developed and treated in a manner that makes them each very believable. For example, the character of ancient Master Lin Yi is colorfully described through his clothing and his manner of speaking.
