    Posted at Heradas ReviewI read this novel almost entirely from a hammock in my backyard, and I’d recommend taking that approach. It’s good and pulpy, a light summer Science Fiction read. A blue co...

    I kept hoping this would get better, but it never did. None of the characters' motivations made sense throughout the entire book, and the entire setting was a bit poorly imagined. There were good 'spa...
