Tyrmia is a great adventure. McConnell does a good job of introducing the reader to a great cast of unique characters, while adding great detail to the landscape of the Planet which they are on. It's my favorite of his so far. If you are looking for a new Science Fiction author who uses some old school thesis with fresh and genuine characters and worlds, you should also check out his novel called Starstrikers.
