Rating: 4.0 – a different take on aliens and alien tech

Opinion: This was a very good book. I was hesitant to read it because it’s over 800 pages. But I was very impressed that the story very well paced. The science was well explained and not over bearing. It was nice to have a reference guide for the places and terms in the back. The characters were great and likable, at least the ones who were supposed to be likable. I liked that the ending of the book was different than the standard sci-fi ending. It was a better fit for the book. This book is supposed to be the start of a series so I’m curious about where the author takes it. This is a great book and I recommend it for anyone who loves sci-fi and can handle big books.
