The people depicted however..... Well, the main characters are slightly disappointing as they are almost all unfailingly brilliant, rich, powerful natural leaders or in some way superior etc etc...
They are almost all pretty damn cold blooded as well, and don't have too much patience for anyone not similarly at the top of their game. In the high stakes struggle for species survival, they will unflinchingly lie and cheat to get what they want, and human life, especially the lives of those deemed undesirable are cheap, cheap, cheap.
It's kind of a believable but also quite brutal "me and mine" first sort of universe, and as the megadeaths add up, the most likeable characters are the aliens, who believe they have no choice but to kill us by the planetful, but at least feel bad about it! There is a lot of imagination and thought that runs through the book, but also an almost subconscious attitude about what makes a human life worthwhile that was mildly disturbing.
And apparently no politician of any sort is good for anything except as a foil to be outmanouvered repeatedly by our natural winner characters. Politicians come and go with startling abruptness after doing their job of advancing some character or others agenda. And they seem to exist mostly as levers of power to be used and discarded.Read more ›
I would like to note that book two is available although it does not show up when a search is done on the author's name. Shame on Amazon - the link is -
When they see their race becoming extinct, things are grim. Only one of their most skilled lookers is able to see a way that avoids it, and it currently exists in only one possible future timeline. What's more, it can only be achieved by violating major taboos their society has. But not just as a group. He'll have to do it personally.
Sound interesting? This is just the beginning. The book is an intricate mosaic that weaves stories that are happening in different timelines. How they differ from ours and how they interact is fascinating.
This is the author's first book. It's well written and edited, but the main reason I'm giving five stars is how the author was able to convey a complicated plotline.
I feel this book is strong enough to stand on its own without any further books. If you don't like waiting for a series to conclude, you may want to wait but I don't recommend it. :-)
Read it, loved it, got into the characters, action .... then found out he hasn't written book 2 yet.
That's annoying, right there.
