    An exercise in poor editing

    This is not a review of the content of the book, as I personally enjoyed the story, development, and plot. This is intended only to warn potential readers that this is a horribly digitized e-book. It's almost as if someone tore pages from the printed book to run through bargain-store OCR scanning software, then translated to a foreign language and back a few times to tidy things up.

    This Nook Book is rife with errors from multiple sentences on a page withous spacing to random capitalization to nonsensical letter swaps with other letters, numbers, or even punctuation marks. Nothing brings home the heard-pounding stress of a situation like changing all instances of the letter I with an exclaimation point.

    While I found this book to be worth the cost I do have to say that the constant bizarre errors constantly pulled me from the story as I spent valuable and sparse brain power trying to determine what exactly the given sentence was trying to tell me. If you enjoy L. E. Modesitt's work as much as I do then I heartily recommend this book. If you're unfamiliar with his work then I encourage you to look elsewhere so that your opinion of him isn't tainted by this terrible travesty of editorial oversight.

    Great

    L.E. Modesitt, Jr., never fails in laying down interesting moral questions and problems, and this book is perhaps the one most filled with them.

    Thought provoking

    Modesitt manages to balance many ideas of our possible future in very a thought provoking tale. It will make you question where our race is heading with the many technilogical concepts we seem so eager to get our hands on.
