Worth the Time
Starting last year I stumbled on to the Phoenix series out of longing for some good S.F. I haven't been disappointed and I look forward to the conclusion reluctantly because I don't want it to end. It's been a fun read, good characters, and a great story. Even the audio versions have held my interest as well as with my wife who never reads S.F. Bravo. The best for my tastes since the Rama Series.
Fast paced as the first!
If you follow the author on Facebook you can get the particulars of the grammar issues. They are being fixed. You can also read the particulars for why the book is split in two. I'd much rather a better story than something pieced together to appease the ebook masters and their arbitrary deadlines.
Anyway, a really fast paced and fun read! Much better than some of the sequels as far as pacing is concerned. Truly enjoyable. I'll be sad when the last installment is produced!
Brilliant... Absolutely brilliant!! Can't wait for the final chapter, but hate to see it end. What a great ride!!
