Very nice read that mixes science-fiction and fantasy. Unicorns are real! and they travel in space...with humans you never know. McCaffery never disappoints and this is a great 7 out of 10. I needed the shelf space!

Very very interesting read...along the lines of a "james rollins" or Custler crossed with wilbur Smith. Baxter writes a lot of Sci-Fi, but this is a nice change.

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.

On EVERYONE's must read list...it does not disappoint. They even do college classes on this book, researching nuances, and sutleties that abound in this account of a lowly unwanted boy that saves the universe, and doesn't even know it.

I only posted this one because I have too many books that are "favorites." Hogan never disappoints and this one is filled with fantastical robot culture descriptions and great adventure Science-Fiction. I shoulda kept this one...8 1/2 out of 10 stars!

Very cool time travel story that envolves the future with the USA and Nazi's in the 1970's! Yep, I love time travel. Good read with great descriptions and language. I have nearly 100 "other" time travel science fictions adventures. Will probably regret that I let this one go. But Hogan never disappoints with this 8 out of 10 stars...

This is by far the most creative and descriptive of Julie's trilogies. I was immediately taken by the deep explanations of the world's culture and characters. What a wonderful start to a new trilogy. Can't wait for more and if you like Sci-Fi...this is on the top of the list! This is just too entertaining and imaginative...
