Robert Collins is an author who promotes his work at the MobileRead forums. I visit the forums and I also like science fiction, so I decided to give it a try. I chose "Expert assistance" because the synopsis sounded interesting. Unfortunately, the premise of the story is not utilized. There is nothing wrong with the writing, the characters may be somewhat one-dimensional, but I didn't find it problematic. The biggest drawback, in my opinion, is that the protagonists face no obstacles whatsoever (actually they do, but overcome them easily). This makes the novel somewhat bland.

Still, it is better than some others, which try to be too original for their own sake. In this respect "Expert assistance" may be a welcome break from excessively complex world building, outlandish characters and complicated plot devices. There is also no foul language, badass heroes or extreme violence. It is a light read and if you like sci-fi and it gets you in the right mood, you might like it.
