's review

liked it

This short, noir-ish sci-fi thriller finds a middle ground between being almost mediocre and almost great. On one hand, the author's investment in the characters and wordbuilding definitely shows; it is easier for a reader to care about the goings-on when the author clearly does as well. The drawback is that none of it is terribly original or surprising. That doesn't necessarily mean "bad" in this case, it just means "shrug." The story's final twist is rendered well, but still manages to feel a little forced.
This author's got skills, for sure; there is a solid feel for action, setting, environment, etc. Titanborn is good, light entertainment. Your enjoyment will depend on your tolerance level for the action movie clichés that keep things humming along.
