it was amazing

Recommended to Nihonjoe by: Kai Hintze
Recommended for: people who like military science fiction and military action

The first book was quite good, but I liked this one better. It still has Ringo's charm (which isn't surprising since he co-authored it), but it has more of the sciencey stuff I like in science fiction.

This time, Weaver, Miller, and Mimi are off exploring strange new worlds and new civilizations in the first human spaceship (actually a converted boomer (missile sub)). It posits some interesting concepts regarding space travel, warp travel, and the various effects that are exerted by stars and other celestial objects.

All-in-all, a very fun read. :)
