    Totally amazing

    Had I known that this book was this amazing, I wouldn't have had a problem with actually PAYING for it. This(in my opinion)is the best free book Barnes&Noble is offering. The detail in here, and the interaction of the character, is just plain amazing. I have to admit, it has many grammatical errors in it, but that's pretty much expected from a free book, right? Once you get past them, you really get involved in the story more. Please try it out, I HIGHLY recommend it.

    Great read ... highly recommended, with a caveat

    I really loved this book ... well written, and engrossing. It reminded me a lot of Harry Potter and Hogwarts with alien technology substituting for magic. It's the first of a trilogy, and the first two ended with a cliffhanger.

    Here's the caveat. The second book, the Million Years Journey is also available for download, but the third book, The Legend of the Locust, is supposed to be available in the summer of 2010 but, it's nowhere to be found. A search of the web does not show any references to it, and precious little about the author.

    So if you're the sort of person who likes to have a series 'in hand' before starting book 1, be forewarned.

    Excellent Read

    The work would benefit from an editor who actually caught typos and who actually focused on ebook layout, but the plot and characters themselves are delightful. If you like Harry Potter or Star Trek this is an instant hit. I'd also recommend it to people who like adventure mysteries and sci-fic exploration genre reads. I'm definitely going to be reading the next book and I'll be looking for more from this author in the future.

    This is amazing!

    This will leave you wanting more with every word. An amazing beginning, but an ending that almost made me cry.

    Just bought next book

    This is not a pertfect book, however, I just paid to get the follow next book in the series. I thonk that alone says a lot. Tjere are plot holes and some typos, however, the book was entertaining. For a free book, it is great.

    There did seem to be a lot of parallels was Harry Potter , but thatcis not necessarily bad.

    Hey

    Reminiscent of early Heinlein, just a darn good SF story. A few editing issues but tolerable.
