I picked this one up at the local grocery store when I saw it. I had read "Haze" by Modesitt Jr. and really enjoyed it.

I have to admit the story is very slow to get started. But once you get the hang of the different plots it goes well. There was a lot of repeated information and I found that a bit off putting. I am sure it is done because Modesitt alternates stories every chapter.

As you get to the end he stops following the typical order and it was a bit confusing at the end.

Overall, once things got going, the story kept me interested and finally got me settled into a constant need to turn the page. I would recommend it to other fans for Modesitt Science Fiction.

Finally, don't be put off by those that mention this as Hard Science Fiction. I don't much care for hard science fiction because it can often become overwhelming. This story provided a good mix of science and plot. It doesn't give you too little science or too much.
