Well-told, detailed scifi mystery you can't put down
I most certainly enjoyed Sasya Fox's Theta; it is easily the best anthropomorphic science fiction I have come across thus far, and I relished the complexity of the intrigue and the setting. Both the characters and the plot are compelling, and Sasya brings an amazing level of authenticity to the tactics and fleet actions described over the course of the novel, one that can only have been born to someone who knows much and researches more about this subject matter. Sasya Fox's characterization and dramatization are a great deal more than adequate for the storytelling to feel muscular, cogent, and well-paced. Truly, Sasya has a gift for simile and metaphor that is rare in this genre, and I found myself highligting more than one well-turned phrase as I advanced through the fascinating plot. Any fan of space opera or intrigue is sure to enjoy Theta, and, despite the plot's complexity, the novel remains quite accessible. Highly recommended.
a solid tale of piracy, politics, love and evolution
Sasya Fox has put together a marvelously creative tale here that I enjoyed reading quite a bit. It has a couple of uneven points, but more than makes up for those in sheer imagination and more than a bit of wit and charm. The novel could easily have been twice its length and still would have been as good, though its clear in the writing (and in the excerpt past the epilogue) that the sequel will continue the story.
