New Amazon Review: Unprecedented World Building

Unprecedented World Building

"This is the kind of science fiction novel that you have to surrender yourself to completely. There is a ton of world building going on here, the author has clearly mapped out whole histories of a complex and fascinating world. When you don't know an author, it's difficult to commit fully to the task of learning everything that must be comprehended to enjoy a novel like this. In this case, however, it is worth it.

This isn't the type of novel for casual readers. The writing is very well done and the book is clearly professionally edited. That being said, the sentence structures are probably too complex for the average reader. If you're a fan of R.A. Salvatore, for example, you're going to be lost if you attempt this book.

Dune, I believe, is the best comparison. I felt that the plot was forwarded more by ambiance than traditional episodes. There's a lot of important action that takes place within the heart and mind of the characters. This is the kind of book you want with you for when you're snowed in to a rustic cabin somewhere in the middle of nowhere and you're allowed to completely engage with the material. Recommended."
