Nobody knows how to control the station anymore, and it’s only by sheer luck that many of its systems still function in automatic mode. The world building is awesome! I can even think of the movie based in the story of this half-destroyed space station.
The plot is good, but without being as magnificent as the world building. However, the story’s greatest flaw is its characters. Not all of them, of course, I’d be unfair if I say all the characters are flawed. However, there’s something missing in some of them. There’s something that is preventing me to suspend disbelief. E.g. the very main character keeps helping another one whom he should have otherwise killed or abandoned. His motivations are not quite clear.
A pair of Siamese brothers, part of the main characters, need more development in order to turn into multidimensional people. The way they are presented, the interaction between the two of them is a bit far fetched.
Finally, there’s quite an amount of typos and edition issues, but I’m not worrying about them. I’m sure the author will take of them and the next edition available will be typo-free.
I’d recommend this story to all readers who enjoy space operas and soft sci-fi. The world building is so awesome that true fans will turn a blind eye towards the issues I pointed at above.
This story is a unique journey with many surprises that fascinated me and kept me engaged. I felt connected with the colorful characters and was immersed in their day-to-day life. If it weren’t for the occasional editing errors, I would have easily given this five stars. While disappointing, it wasn’t enough to take away from the story. I’m giving four stars as an incentive to a talented author to invest in a professional editor. I look forward to reading the next addition to the Atlas Cycle series.
