It's OK, but way too linear & totally predictable
As standard Sci Fi goes this was OK, started off really well, but then settled down into a linear narrative that seemed to be written to appeal to people who don't like to think too much.
I was over thinking and added twists at key points that, disappointingly, didn't occur.
It has 2, and I have no interest in reading them.
