Being a close friend of the author, I first read this novel when it was in an early draft. At the time, I was focused on checking it for minor typos; thus, it was kind of hard to let myself get absorbed in the story. I remember some elements of the story that made it highly amusing. I think there is potential for world/universe-building here and for more stories. That being said, I plan on reading this story again since it's in its finalized version, and then spending some time on a proper review (and maybe come up with some more story ideas to throw the author's way; I'm working on writing my first novel now and would like to write one with Nathaniel). I gave this novel 3 out of 5 stars for now pending a proper review (the rating might go up; I gave this novel at least a 3 also to avoid accusations of being a biased reviewer because I personally know the author; hence my needing to do a proper review) and also as a way to let people know they just might want to read this story. :-)

周婉蓮 차우 크리스티나 Cass I read this book about 5 years ago when the author had just finished it and it wasn't finalized. I haven't rated this book for a few reasons.

1. I plan on re-reading it.
2. I don't remember all the details of what I liked or disliked in the book (I do remember that I liked the ending and the world the author created, so it gets at least 3 stars.)
3. The first time I read it, it was mostly to look for obvious typos. Basically, I didn't get to relax into the book; hence, #1 above.

That being said, I think people should read this book based on the blurb above. The basic idea behind the story is (based on what I've read and seen in sci-fi so far) fairly unique.
