This was an interesting read. I am a big fan of technobabble and this book definitely delivered it. The characters are complex and the plot is engaging. It held my interest and I burned through it in just few hours, and my mind didn't wander to life outside of the page once. I kinda love Calliphon.
This book was an interesting read with a good story arc, although I felt some of the characters lacked some depth, which keeps the reader a bit dis-engaged. There’s the usual characters to love and characters to hate which did bring out some emotions.
As my usual genre is “techno thriller”, I did enjoy reading about the imagined futuristic technology, but was a bit disappointed that the tech was not described in more detail. (such as how does framing and frame bombs work exactly), but this wasn’t a “techno thriller” novel, so I am probably expecting too much.
I did imagine the moon base, the structure on the planet, and the guardian robot, and the network of satellites as all being steampunk in my mind’s eye, which I enjoyed.
I did wonder if the title of the book, and the references to the extinct race of people described as “the makers” is a veiled reference to the book “The Sirius Mystery” by Robert K. G. Temple.
Overall I enjoyed the read. R.G.
Danial has a great writing style that is entertaining and a way of developing not only the story and the characters. There were ones that I loved to love and loved to hate, there there was the one that I despised. This story took me into creative worlds and had me cheering for the underdog. Will the group pull of what they are to achieve, will everyone survive? This book is not my normal read but one of the better science fictions I have read.
