Ascension Point is science fiction in the “it’s the future” sense of the genre, with the Seryn race, Harris mixes in a bit of fantasy.

A really fun and lighthearted read in the style of the old Saturday morning matinee. The book moves along at a crackling pace right to the last page, with plenty of believable action and intrigue. I was entertained, and sometimes that is the highest compliment I can pay a book. For a self-published book, I was also quite impressed with the quality of writing. Recommended, and I wouldn't hesitate to pick up the next instalment in what appears to be an inevitable series.

And then the author went and brought in reality to the story and you had to sit back and ponder a bit.
