The story is actually quite well developed and quite more complex than the usual fare that follows that trope, it is quite the large novel, which is something I like as it does have meat and the pacing while quite sedate, is not glacial, the story does move forward quite effectively and it does provide a satisfactory and enjoyable read.
The story does present us with several mysteries, and an steady development arc which are a joy to read, my only complaint would be that there are several points of detail in the story that are somewhat hard to swallow which to me detract from the amazing work Mr. Thorensen has done. Primarily that Caedelli are both too nice to be believable and too naïve to be believable, particularly for the setting that has been established. But that is a minor caveat in a thoroughly well written book.
Space version of A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court. Recommended!
There are little pieces here or there that, frankly, make no sense. My favorite being him lamenting that they don't have matches on this planet because they haven't been invented yet. Well jeez, if only there were a CHEMIST of some sort who knew of such substances that might work?
Beyond that is the simple fact of the level of military technology he shares with his new people. I know is unrealistic to expect him to start pumping out machine guns, but why stick with musket balls when you KNOW they were abandoned for the cone shaped bullet due to drastically improved accuracy and range? You'd think that, when faced with almost certain death, you'd set the bar a little higher.
*phew* Okay that said I really did enjoy this book. It's still not perfect, and can be a little long winded, but it's definitely worth reading.
So far in this series the author could have cut several hundred pages and you would not have missed anything.
