This is a great book. There are times when it really slows down; however, it is worth working through the slow parts for the rest. Great combat, interesting plot, and a slew of great characters. An excellent read!

I enjoyed this book very much. The characters stayed consistent and the science & research was well thought-out. I would definitely recommend this one and will be looking for others by this author.

The story was interesting, but the author has a very dark place in his soul that comes out in the form of described rape, torture, etc. I finished book one, but am opting out of the rest of the series. If that sort of thing doesn't disturb you, the book was well written. If it would bother you, you'd best pass. Also, very poor research especially in the medical field. I had a number of eye roll moments from that.

Got through about 100 pages of this too long book and gave up. I thought the premise was interesting but was not interested in what happened to most of the characters.
