Recensioner

A confident beach read of a SF novel. Asaro's reputation, at least as I understood it, is for compelling hard SF in a space opera package. I definitely did not expect the fluffy paranormal romance!

The characters aren't complex here, and the dialogue is pretty weak, but Asaro does get props for dealing with combat and trauma in a thoughtful way. Not at all my usual read but I would recommend it to space opera fans who enjoy intrigue and romance.

I might be being a little harsh but I just could not buy into this story which felt like an excuse for sex scenes between an old man and an android. The action parts felt dated and the medical practices were definitely outdated.

I was first drawn to Catherine's books by Saucony, first in short story, then the duology concerning her, & finally the Ruby Dice and this book. So far all were pretty good.... But this one falls short of those others. Several problems with the plot, but I don't want to go into spoilers. We'll see how the next goes...
