An interesting but flawed space opera

On the Steel Breeze, the follow-up to 2012's Blue Remembered Earth, is a typical Alastair Reynolds novel. It has all of Reynolds' usual good points – a fascinating setting, evocative description, and a complex, many-layered plot. However, the book also displays his weaknesses: characters are somewhat bland and difficult to relate to, and some chapters tend to drag. I recommend this as a good piece of sci-fi, but not a great one.
