Even though I pretty much enjoyed this book, the fact that it reads like a TV show bugs me. It's like the author has no love for his characters with the way he kills them off or just ends things lazily. I can just envision him typing away and thinking how cool he is because he knew he could make it into a show someday. However, people who actually tend to read more and watch tv less may read this stuff and feel it has too many cliff hangers, characters are simply "cycled" through because the author doesn't have more interesting endings for them and constantly reading a retelling of something that happened in Earth's history (with the names & locations changed to protect the author's lack of creativity) drives me a little batty. That said, it's not a bad read, but be forewarned.
