The story had some interesting elements but too many questionable one. Climbing rocks and running from predators immediately after being awakened from several hundred years of cryo sleep was the first. The speed at which the main characters fell in love was another. Earth had experienced a cataclysmic event that almost destroyed the planet and nearly wiped out humanity but the explanation of this event is lean. Character development is also lean. It needs more structure.

This book should be considered a work in progress. It is a good first draft but needs a lot of work. Cris is an interesting though contradictory character from page 1, and the contradictions get stronger as we go along. Lorelei never becomes real. The plot is convoluted, which would not be a problem if it actually flowed.
The ultimate set of paradoxes which bind the plot is a plus. I'd recommend waiting for a second or third draft that irons out all the bumps before committing to read it.

The execution leaves something to be desired. It feels like the author tried to cram in so many "cool" ideas that he didn't have time for "reasonableness checks". As a result I had to suspend disbelief a number of times (example: Oh look, a suit that turns me into a fish and can swim to a super deep submerged city... 15 minutes later I'm at risk of drowning while wearing same suit) in the first 3rd of the book and was rather put off simplistic, poorly written, romance component.

There's so much potential in the ideas and universe that's described in this book, I can't help but feel let down by the final execution.

Three stars. Two for the ideas and one for having a sexy chick in a cat suit.

What a paradox! This book had me thinking, especially about the effects of time travel.

Although it was a bit confusing trying to keep up with some of the things that happened. I also don't understand how the main character can be so kind and then have one experience that completely changes him into something else.

Loved the general idea though, a man wakes up after being frozen for far too long and is in a strange world.

The romance was interesting, a smidgen bit unbelievable, but I still greatly enjoyed the book. The concept was really good.

Don't be fooled by the 5-star reviews given to this book by a commenter with a suspiciously similar surname to the author, this is a book with a good concept, but some serious flaws. The author introduces us to the world he is creating with an incredibly generic and cliched opening sequence, but quickly intrigues with the core concept, but herein lies the main problem with this title. Everything happens too quickly, situations don't get a chance to build, they just happen and often leave the reader bewildered as to how this has come to pass. There are a lot of excellent concepts in this book, but they are all mashed together too abruptly, and the author clearly has been influence by other pop-culture SF, with obvious references and allusions throughout. Whether this is done knowingly or not remains to be seen, but it cheapens the whole experience and again becomes cliched. With a slower pace, these problems would likely work themselves out, but now it feels like there are three novels slammed into one, with the author too unwilling to either expand the overall length, or cut back on plot elements - either of which would have helped significantly with the clarity of the author's vision.

The extremely and unnecessarily rapid pacing of this novel leads to quite a lot of issues. Characters make implausible decisions, by either acting very rashly or by complete inaction, with reasoning for either option not sufficiently provided, leaving the reader questioning how 1+1 can equal 3 and 9 simultaneously. Plot holes are frequent and often jarring, something a simple read-through by someone other than the author would have detected and corrected. Discard characters are often introduced with more character development than the lead protagonists/antagonists.

I read part of this book as part of the "The Complete New Dominion Trilogy" which was just published. I returned that book in less than 24 hours for a refund. That should give you an idea of my opinion of this book.

I really tried to like this book. It started out with great promise. After the half or so of this book, I was very, very disappointed. The book goes off into, what for lack of a better explanation I would have to call a new age kind of semi-spirituality that has no basis in any science, or religion I am familiar with.

As far as plot goes, the author starts plot lines and drops them. IMO he breaks faith with the reader by doing things that just flat do not make sense for the protagonists to do. If I could give this book zero stars I would give it that. Too bad. It started with such promise and was such a bust. I am glad I was able to return it before the 24 hour time frame was up.

I'm not going to give away anything about this book, other than that it has a good plot twist. I enjoyed reading this book and could not put it down after starting to read. I love science fiction and fantasy fiction and this fits in the category very well. Not only is it worth the 99 cents but i would have easily paid more for it. I recommend this book to people that like an entertaining book that is different from the majority of books out there.
