200 years ago, an apocalypse swept across Earth. Man escaped to orbital colonies leaving the madness behind. The Paratwa, the deadly assassin genetic twins, were extinct. Man lived in harmony on the edge of space scattered among hundreds of colonial cylinders. But…something has awakened. A piece of the past has come back. The body count is rising. Can the civilized future man embrace what comes to their aid?
Science fiction, murder mystery, alternate history, suspense, action
Gillian…because he is pure awesome.
Least Favorite Character:
Paula Marth. Mainly because there are places where her character doesn’t ring true. Especially when she finally has had enough of spoiled brat Jerem and delivers an attention getter. Only to spend the rest of the books thinkcasting at us about how bad she feels because she disciplined her unruly child. I get that she would feel that way. But it is a boat anchor whenever she appeared in a scene.
The Cohe wand fights. It’s a set of visuals that would make for an awesome motion picture. Imagine a black energy lightsaber that acts like a combination whip/scythe Green Lantern ring. It’s a great weapon.
Plot Holes/Out of Character:
None that leap out at me.

I would love to read more Christopher Hinz
Disposition of Book:
This has been on my re-read pile since 1987. I’ve read it at least three times. And it is staying on my re-read pile. Awesome book.
