Read in August, 2007

Having heard that this series was almost a Space Opera I wasn't really sure what to expect. Genetically enhanced children with 4 arms? Rioting engineers and ethical dilemmas enough to make my head spin? Hostages, children and the theft of an entire space station?

Leo Graf is sent to work on a new project and is shocked to find that a genetic experiment has been conducted for the last 25 years to genetically enhance a new race breed solely for work in null-grav conditions.

It's been a long time since I've read sci-fi and this genre really doesn't pull any punches, the moral implications hit you hard and the characters even harder. I'm not sure how this particular novel fits into the entire series (given that it's about a character named Miles who didn't make an appearance in the whole novel...) but it was interesting enough for me to take a glance at the next few books.
