    Filled with masterful passages of literary genius

    The pages of Meridian's Shadow are filled with masterful passages of literary genius. Clearly the author intimately understands how to use the English language to persuade his readers. I had many `aha' moments with Meridian's Shadow where the author surprised me; then I remembered how he had foreshadowed an event long before. Even though the book is long, it never felt like it. None of the chapters are slow; it was edited so well. The author's sense of humor shows itself throughout the pages, and I found myself laughing out loud.

    So many science fiction writers bore me with details...details...details. But Dan Moore knows the perfect balance between information output and the forward momentum of events and plot. He writes in a way that I wished all scifi authors would. I couldn't put the novel down, thinking that just around the corner would be another gem. I was so invested in several of the characters, like Nixie, that I was sorry that the novel would end. Then, I learned that this is the first novel in the Meridian's Shadow series, and I cheered for joy.

    This is the second science fiction novel I've bought of the author's, and just like The Rings of Alathea, Dan Moore blew me away. There are some authors who have the unique gift of developing characters that jump off the page, and plots that are full of surprises; Dan Moore is one of these authors. In one word, I would define this novel as epic.
