Sometimes the recipe for a good book is an ingredients list full of Points of View. This book dishes out confusion, frustration, anger and fear and not from one main character but five! It was an amalgamation of excellence! Center of Gravity is the story of the Carson family: Mitchell, Ava, Jack and Sam. Their brief moment of bliss is disrupted by questionable behavior, jealousy, murder and practically a complete overhaul of personality! Emotional nerves are frayed and eventually, a family broken. McNeill wrote with fever, allowing readers to develop emotional bonds with each person involved. You either liked them, loved them or despised them. Her gift at developing personalities and situations flowed in such a manner, you felt you knew them and endured the situations alongside them. The narratives progressed without lag or disinterest, making for a great book. I found myself pacing about my hotel room from the last few chapters, clear through the epilogue. If you're looking for a plot to chew on, feast on this book. This affective roller coaster will fill you to breaking point, leaving you both exhausted and extremely satisfied.

While this series falls into the category of military science fiction, the book reads as engaginly as space opera. The technical detail integrated into the story line satisfies even the most hardcore techie expectation. The constant switch from macro to micro storyline continues to wet one's appetite for what's next as each scene transfers to the next with cliff-hanger. This is high-tech, military sci-fi, space opera at its most engaging. Can hardly wait for volume three.
