Lots of technology, lots of romance
Somehow, this book combines heavy theoretical physics and a love story in a way that actually works. For those with more restrained natures, the sexuality might be a bit much, but it was not gratuitous and did fit into the story.
If you like a universe that hangs together and abides by it's own laws, you will enjoy this one. If detours into technical explanations of how the 'magic' works annoy you, then you may find this tedious in places. Personally, I found the explanations added to the depth of the artificial universe created by Asaro, and the characters are interesting. Overall, it's not a bad listen (although it did take me some time to get used to the reader's "male voices" - they sounded a bit odd).

Not nearly as good as Primary Inversion
I fully expected this novel to be in the same league as Primary Inversion, her first novel of the Skolian series..but it was really basically a gothic romance set in a future time. It did have a bit of science thrown in there...but mostly it was a tedious and tired romantic dreck of a novel and I was highly disappointed. Really a ridiculous book. I'll try Quantum Rose next, hopefully it will be more like Primary Inversion.
