Plot: White's space opera hurtles through galaxies and time at a breakneck pace, packed with action-heavy scenes and a general sense of foreboding as the fate of the universe is at stake.
Prose: White's prose flows smoothly and clearly, and is eloquent at times. The writing races along taking readers with it.
Originality: White's science fiction adventures and characters are reminiscent of genre classics, but the work's relevance to the current socio-political climate lends extra weight to this novel.
Character Development: The characters in The Deftly Paradox are well-introduced, but not fully fleshed-out. A little more attention to character development would result in characters in whom readers could become fully invested.
