Original Not A Review:

I'm not going to rate this book because I couldn'tt finish it...

Though I didn’t finish The Worker Prince, I do recognize that it is an exciting, fast paced story with quality writing that will serve to quickly absorb many readers in the tale being told. The Worker Prince is the first book in a trilogy and, I’m sure that fans will be hooked and anxious to read next book in the series. While I felt that the book lacked emotion, had some out-of-place technology and was over-the-top with Christianity, I do feel that it will be a hit with readers who are into Christian literature. It didn’t work for me, but it definitely has its niche and readers interested in this kind of thing, or willing to overlook the problems I saw with it should certainly check it out.


3.5/5 stars

The Worker Prince is one of those science fiction books that will probably make tried-and-true SF readers wax nostalgic about all the things that made them fall in love with science fiction in the first place. Schmidt fills this book with a bit of everything, some understated romance, action, adventure, prophecies, space travel and much more. Yes, there are Christian themes here, but Schmidt does a good job at handling them delicately and the underlying messages will appeal to most readers. While I did have problems with some of the characterization and technical terms, The Worker Prince is an overall success, and reminded me why speculative fiction is such an incredible, fun, and surprisingly deep genre.
