Hogan again does not disappoint. I have too many "favorites" and this shoulda been left on my shelf. Great story, great writing, future of the inner solar system ... oh, and then the aliens show up! A solid 8 out of 10 stars.

A bit heavy going in the first half, very technical. Gets better as it goes on.

Kind of a nice little read. Moves too slow in places, but the SF is fantastic. The military and Armageddon aspects are ok too, I guess. The author really tried to develop the characters, but they seemed weak to me. Dreaming up the new angle on the origin of Venus makes for good sci-fi. A new planet is born, ejected from Jupiter (I did say it's fantastic sci-fi, didn't I?).

I've read a number of Hogan's books and every one is a page turner.
