Iris is the science fiction novel you’ve been waiting for without knowing it: with the scope of Game of Thrones, and the feel of Asimov, it’s destined to become your new SciFi addiction.

This multiple POV novel is the perfect simmering science fiction thriller. Its character driven plot is brilliantly executed: the novel reads differently depending on who you follow, and who you want to believe. For some, the Atlantic station is corrupt and full of government cover-ups. For others, it’s just home

Started to drag in the middle but a mood shift saved it. Nice world building but characterisations slightly off. Will read next installment.

I'm not typically a science fiction reader, but I found this story very compelling and exciting. Great character development and a good mix of conflict, challenges, and varying personalities. I really enjoyed Iris and have already read Book #2, Kholvaria. Kholvaria is even better than Iris.
