I bought this book because I bought her book Dust and really enjoyed it. This book was definately not Dust. It was almost as if someone else had written it. The two heroes of the story Vincent and Michaelangelo were a incredible team until a failed mission and the discovery of their taboo homosexual relationship forces them apart. After seventeen years the New Earth government has brought them together again for a mission to infiltrate the government of New Amazonia, a planet run by women who live by a code of wild west dueling. The twist is one of the two is a saboteur and was reponsible for the first failed mission. There is political intrigue and the native alien dragons who have made themselves immortal by downloading themselves into a conglomerate virtual entity that inhabits the infrastructure of the planet. The book never seems to really come together. It starts off slow but when the action takes off it's still unworthy. It was hard to follow the silent musings of the two men because you couldn't tell when they were thinking to themselves about themselves or thinking to themselves about each other. Are you confused? I was too. The premise of the book was strong but if fell apart amidst the politics and alien ethicals issues. Not a must read book but I think a Sci-Fi/Fantasy lover will get enough out of it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
