The characters were well written and in depth. A homicidal maniac is running the station and all hell's broken loose which keeps the Tracers on the run throughout the whole story.

I liked the characters, although the story was slow to start. There were a few times the plot twists made me go back and re read some sections.

Tina Hi Tony- Thanks for the invite. If you like Weber's Honor Harrington series I highly recommend his stand alone book Path of the Fury (if you haven't already read it) or, the expanded version of it In Fury Born (which adds a 400 page prequel to the original).


message 10: by Aloha

Aloha Hi Tony. Thank you for the invite and reading my review. I agree that the movie diverged greatly from the book. Both are interesting, though. I guess if one of your books turned into a movie, you'll know what to expect. :o)


Nicole Hi, Tony. Thanks for the friend request. And thank you for your service.

Thanks for the friend request.


Tabitha (Pabkins) Why hello new friend! *cackles madly*


Faye Thanks for the friend request..... Feel free to dig through my shelves for ideas on books, my tastes vary widely. I love Peter F Hamilton for my science fiction fix, will re read those till I die.


Chance Maree Thank you for the friendly request. You would know better than I would, but Shards of Honour struck me as a warrior's book. Very vivid, indeed. I look forward to exchanging book recommendations and other general book talk with you.


Angela Hi Tony, thanks for the friend request. I've not read 'The Foundation' but it sounds like my type of thing.

Scott Holstad Hi Tony. Thanks for your comment and the friend request. I'll look forward to your updates. (I love Frederik Pohl too. I'm reading two of his books right now....)

Cheers!
Scott


Tracey Thanks for the friend request!


Rollie Thanks for the add. :)
