Traviss isn't a very good writer. But I like the complexity of the story. I don't have a good grasp of the human characters and find the relationship distant and boring. The alien characters are easier to understand. Many people show great admiration for the protagonist, while I find her very inconsistent. There was an issue near the end of the book that could have been left completely out of the story and no one would have been the wiser. But she left a great cliff hanger and I will probably keep reading till the end of the series. I would only recommend this book to those who have read the previous portions of the series. It isn't perfect but it is though provoking.
