4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable but not for hard core Palmer fans I think, February 20, 2008
This review is from: The Morcai Battalion (Hardcover)
As referenced by another reviewer. Ms. Palmer is probably thinking danged if I do danged if I don't. If you are looking for a typical boy meets girl, they suffer through trials, and end up happy, or a western setting... you are bound to be startled by this book. It IS a departure. That said, I was an old time Diana Palmer boy meets girl fan for many many years but I do admit that after a while I became accustomed to her writing style and left to seek different pastures. I was slow to return to Ms. Palmers world but I believe in trying different things so I checked this one out from the library. I was VERY happy I did so. Yes, the book does show its age from its original publication era in the technology area (lots of modem references) but being from the age group who remember modems first being introduced I was not bothered. I think you should approach this book from the standpoint of, it isn't the same old Diana us Harlequin girls new and this is not the hard core sci/fi novel you may be expecting. It is delightfully in the middle. I agree that there was some fact repetition and some passages could have been eliminated but I read this with the following in mind. It was a first sci fi effort (I believe) it is a quick refresh of a much older book and don't expect a boy & girl cowboy story. With that in mind. I enjoyed it. I look forward to the next books.
