This book was... not good. I first realized this when I read the steamy sex scene expressed as, "They kissed and fondled for awhile." Even though this was pretty early on, for some reason I tried to stick it out. Sure, the writing is amateurish, I figured. But it's a decent scifi adventure story, right?

Wrong. The plot drags along at a pace that you could still keep up with half-asleep. (I should know, I was for much of it.) The libertarian agenda is laid on so thick it's enough to make you gag--even if you like the agenda.

The best I can say about it is that it's pretty amusing in an unintentional sort of way. The last time I picked it up (a month ago at least) I laughed out loud when the main character mused to himself, "I guess lucky coincidences aren't just for cheesy action heroes!"

Jeff Yoak unintentionally-amusing may be a shelf I have to create. :_)
