Both are well-sketched, intriguing individuals with a wealth of inner and outer conflicts.
Seed of Creation had something of the feel of classic SF at times: elements of Edgar Rice Burroughs. In the complexity of the world building, the meticulous working out of the ever-present celestial bodies, it was reminiscent of Frank Herbert's Dune.
Where this book stands out above all Daniels' previous offerings (which I have enjoyed very much), is in the adeptness with which he handles the material. This is an author who has learned his craft and is able to convey complex ideas without interfering with a fast-paced plot filled with twists and turns. He conveys a ton of information with light brushstrokes, never over-laboring a point, never wasting words on irrelevant details.
The lunar world is conveyed vividly, with the illusion of effortlessness. The characters step off the page with all the hallmarks of real people, including idiosyncrasies of speech and manner.
As with the Interstellar Age, there is a background of mystery, of an obscured technological past that is barely suspected, never mind comprehended by those in the present. And yet, inexorably, it is with the mysteries of the past that the protagonists much wrestle if their present day threats are to be overcome.
A very competent, engaging, and enjoyable start to what looks set to be a compelling series.
Without a doubt, the author's best work to date.
