Customer Review

on May 1, 2016
This is the first in the two-part story of Jade Darcy. This is a departure from Stephen Goldin's other fiction, being a collaboration with his wife (Mary Mason). This story arc concentrates much more on the characters and interactions than the situation.
The scene is a planet so far away from Earth that Jade is the only human around. This is a far-future environment, with FTL travel, advanced weaponry and advanced computers (strong AI) that forms a backdrop to a very human story.
While I personally have a low tolerance for 'touchy-feely' novels, this one kept my attention by interspersing action, political intrigue, culture and biology of alien races, martial arts (Jade uses Tai Chi in her practice), as well as the personal interactions that reveal Jade's past.
And I like Jade, though I would be quite careful about fast moves near her...
