Wow. This book blew me away. Highly recommended read to anyone who enjoys the genre. Let's get right into the pros/cons:

- Extremely original plot that starts off small and continually escalates as the book goes on.
- Strong characterization.
- Great worldbuilding which I found myself extremely interested in(a rarity).
- Cool and inventive uses of some standard tropes including a joke about "woolgathering."
- Good changes in tone with the right mix of humor and tension.
- Awesome ending that I found completely satisfying. Though the story is pretty self-contained, there are definitely a lot of cool places where it can go in the future and I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series.

- Kind of nit-picky but some of the Miller POVs toward the end of the novel could have been trimmed down a bit.

Definitely liking it so far. Hope it stays that way. ;)

Edward Rosenfeld This book took a bit to get started...but once it did it moved like a high speed train with no stops to make.....
