's review

liked it

Now scifi is not a favoured genre and for me to fully get into it, the story has to be an 'ordinary' story just set in space - and this amazing piece of imaginative writing was very far from my comfort zone. So far I must have warped there!
I'm also not very good at chess so an intergalactic chess match was not going to hook me in. The number of new families, queenships, pilots etc made it tricky for me to keep straight in my head who was allied to who - I think a nice shiny website would do the trick!!
I was imagining the USS Enterprise crossed with starfighters crossed with starship troopers! I was invested in Kato (though Inspector Clouseau kept coming to mind) and Mas'ud and Selvans and the link they shared, though at times it did get a bit beyond me.
So great writing, perhaps too much info for my little mind but I'm sure big sci fi fans will love it
