The characters are well-rounded and believable, especially the very human and likeable Erik, the main protagonist. Erik is a geologist turned astronaut with quirks and foibles. He possesses a great sense of wonder and curiosity as well as an analytical and creative mind that eventually draws the right conclusions from puzzling data and anomalies. The book inspires the reader to keep pace with Erik and solve the riddles of the astronauts’ findings.
Interestingly, the novel includes a storyline with Russian cosmonauts, a very original tack. The authors have obviously thoroughly researched Russian culture & language as well as the Russian space industry & extrapolated it into the future fifty years from now.
The average sci fi reader’s curiosity about alien life forms is satisfied in this novel with its fascinating plot twists and turns.
B.Morris has added an informative science piece about Venus, the “Biography of Venus” to the book. It is full of interesting tid-bits about the landscape on Venus and about the search for life on the planet. It is also well worth reading.
All in all the book is a vastly enjoyable read!
