First Impression: I'm a sucker for space travel and futuristic science.
Characters: The astronauts contrast in a natural way with the other world species. Relationships between the two tribes of people develop towards an interesting surprise or two!
World Building: Little touches like flora and fauna on a new planet paint a vivid picture in Paradox. The science and medicine are intriguing to contemplate, and I really enjoyed understanding Earth's biology while being transported elsewhere.
Writing Style: Rivney has great imagination and an understanding of giving characters backstory. The dialogue is sometimes lacking, but the characters communicate and grow in other ways...much like learning a new language. This isn't always easy to accomplish in sci-fi.
What I Enjoyed: I would like to spend some time on Beta Hydri IV, to get away from Earth awhile. Hopefully I could come back with something wonderful to share. I also enjoyed the science and genetics discussions.
Deal Benders: Sometimes the alien language was a bit distracting. It seemed like the author was trying too hard to make the villagers different. I would have liked more description of Beta Hydri IV - not only the villagers and plant life. The moons and other scenes were a good start in that direction, but were over too soon.
Overall Rating: 3 stars because I liked the science and characters.
