This was my first Gardner, and I was quite impressed with it. Neat worlds, neat concepts, neat characters, neat use of glass. A definite fun but thought-provoking read.

All of Gardner's Expendable universe books are excellent. I like how he carries Festina Ramos over into the other books he writes.

Pretty interesting sci-fi -- my husband and I both enjoyed the premise that people are sent to a certain mission because they are considered expendable, and many don't survive. The planet they go to is pretty nasty. Good character development.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick read but the characters I really liked and the premise was a good one. The author leaves room for a possible sequel which I would like to see happen!

I only recently discovered James Alan Gardner, and I am thoroughly enjoying his writing. His plots are solid, but not predictable, and his characters are competent but don't take themselves too seriously. This is the second book of his that we have read aloud--a testament to his fluid writing style and fast moving, action-packed plots.
