I’m really enjoying this series. It is pure fun in space. Quintessential space opera. Heavy on the action, but with really fun character dynamics as well. I could certainly complain about a few things, but when you compose 595 pages of material, you’re bound to create some edge-cases for any audience. The fact that so much of the book comes off so well is a testament to this writing duo’s ability to entertain.
This was an excellent space opera, fun to read, engaging and entertaining. That it's also the start of a series makes it even more exciting as I have more to look forward to in the future. Critically I have some points which I felt could have been improved, but that could be said of almost every book. If you're looking for a big story set in the context of the solar system, I think you'll enjoy this.
