Engrossing

Good narration, interesting characters. Great story couldn't stop listening. Digger is my favorite character. Fascinating look at the potential perils of first contact.

It's just okay. 2.5 Stars.

This is not his best novel by a long shot. His Alex Bennedict Novels are much better, (Check out Firebird, I think it's his best.). The premise of the novel is interesting, but the excecution of the story is just marginally above average, and he, (Jack) can do better, and has done better. There are just too many other good books out there, I'd suggest spending your money and time on one of his other books (Not a "Talent for War" that's another one of his marginal works in my opinion.) I give it 2.5 stars.
