Wahoo! Yes! This keeps to the excitement and pacing of all the earlier books, and is a fun read. Heart pounding moments in here with really good pacing.
At first I wondered where things would go since we were back to Darcy's story, and I was very pleasantly surprised how that developed. For the character driven people, she's one tough as nails yet compassionate character. For the scifi geeks like me, we really get to see some awesome depths come up what she is and is capable of.
Character development I think is one of Foehner Wells' strengths. I was surprised to see some of the characters change and grow through the story. Darcy's continued growth is as cool to watch as in the first book, where it's almost Ender's Game-esque.
I waited all the months it took for this book to come out with eagerness, and now I can't wait for the 6th book!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for this awesome universe.
Please don’t let this stop at 6 books :) I hope she pulls a Larry Niven and keeps writing stories like he does in his “Ringworld universe”. The history of the Cunabula, the awesome depths of the Sectilius, all these cool species - would be awesome to explore. The Cunabula have that whole “lost ancient civilization” thing going for them.
