I am not sure how to rate this but the premise was so good and the idea so interesting that I give it a 3. I like how the world is built and how the technology is explained. I do like the characters and I want to find out more about them. And that is exactly the negativ point: too little background, too little colour and not enough meat on the bone. Somehow I miss more depth but I am still curious about the big questions in the book and I hope the next book will manage to meet my expectations.

knowing how long Tobias wrote on his debut work it really came out brilliant. The story is deep and characters evolve within the story. Like with most authors additions to the plot are added when they need to give more insights into the universe or more depth to the characters.
