As a debut novel, this really impressed me. The author was very descriptive and shows a very well thought out world and society. I love the lessons the characters learn in this story as well.

The world was well thought out, although a little more rational for the monstrous insects and micro-organisms would make it more credible. The plot is gripping and the book is very readable - a refreshingly simple plot arc with interesting characters. All the more interesting because they weren't entirely loveable or hatable, but I still wanted to know what motivated them and what would happen ...more

You really haven't read a book until this one. This one will take you to another world. If you loved the movie Avatar because it was unique then you'll love this one. Spoiler- two men are in a quest for love, honor and redemption. Please read!

How refreshing to read a science fiction book with truly alien aliens that have been well thought out by the author.
