About the Author
From his earliest memories Jamil Moledina has possessed an unquenchable thirst for science fiction. Moledina devoured classic science fiction during his youth and counts Isaac Asimov's Foundation and Frank Herbert's Dune among the two greatest books he has ever received. He wrote Tearing the Sky in an effort to fill one of many gaps between the picture of our universe as tentatively understood by science, and the one presented in fiction. In this universe, Moledina currently signs and manages independent games for Electronic Arts and lives in San Francisco.

This seems to stand as the "what not to do" example of self-publishing. The writing is artificial and hollow - a hallmark of a poorly written book that has been professionally edited. The grammar is nearly perfect, but the word choice will leave you scratching your head sometimes.
Even worse, the author has tried to weave language from quantum physics and other high-level scientific jargon into most the book. There were several sections I had to read and reread just to figure out what the characters were doing, let alone what that particular thing was supposed to be doing for them.
In truth, I would have rated it at 1 star, but it does pick up quite a bit at the end and I found myself interested in turning pages again. If the entire book had been at that quality, it would have been a tremendously better read.
