As I’ve noted in reviews of previous books in this series, I’m a big fan of Scott Bartlett, and this series especially. So when I got Empire Space, I stopped the book I was reading to read this one.
This is the first book in this series that when I started reading, I was having some trouble keeping engaged in the book. It started slow, slower than Scott’s books normally start. But I kept reading, and sure enough I finally got sucked in, and I couldn’t put the book down. I guess it was background building, and had to be done. And as I ended it, just like each book in the series before it, I already want the next book, even though it’s not out yet. Come on Scott, I need the next book.
So if you start reading this book and think it’s going slow like I did, keep going. You’ll be glad you did.
