This book spends way too long setting things up: all of the plot happens in the final eighth of the book. It's not especially clever in premise and the characters are not terribly well-drawn. It's also difficult to sympathize with them much.

I think its probably an okay book for a not-overly-sophisticated reader or a scifi reader who is still reading primarily from the YA shelves, but it's just not remarkable. It's also neither a convincing romance or scifi space adventure, but it combines the two in a weak fashion for those who might like both. But, really, it's not got much to recommend it over a lot of ground that was covered in the pulps.
