Sequel to Space Prison, which I loved. But, I couldn't even finish it. I found the reaction of the rescued humans to their rescuers (they were jealous and resentful of their rescuers ???!!!) so unbelievable that the story lost all credibility for me.
A nice sequel to the first Ragnarok book, but the characters seem a little dense considering it is obvious who the bad guys are and it takes them half the book to figure it out. It was a quick read though and nice to return to some unique sci-fi perspectives on mankind's future and survival as a species. I personally want mockers to replace smartphones...although I might have allergies I haven't considered.
Brutto seguito.
La fiera dell'improbabile.
Però si legge e non dispiace del tutto.
Interesting after the first book. It was a little hard to follow the levels of the spaceships and what went on there, but it was still a good space action book.
