I loved this book. It was a great mix of sci-fi and the real world. I’ll admit, I did expect it to be a bit heavier into the sci-fi when I picked it up, but I wasn’t disappointed. The plot stole the show and took the book to great heights. From the beginning to the end, this book held my interest. If I was rating this book on plot and story line alone, it would be 4.5 stars. It loses half a star for being rough in the beginning. There’s a lot of information happening very quickly and feels quite like an information dump for a few chapters. The characters in this novel really do come to life, and their romance is invigorating and enticing. I also thought it was interesting how such a sexually free people are not into touching. It’s seems the opposite of what one would think. There is no question of multiple partners, same sex relationships, or sex for fun, yet the culture itself demands they are reserved to the point of not touching beyond hands and forearms. It’s an interesting dynamic that I’m still processing. However, I struggled with reading it. This book should not have taken me long, but I had to keep putting it down because of the lack of editing. Each sentence had grammatical errors in it, including switches between present and past tense almost constantly. It was difficult to push through the bad editing to the story. I really wish the editing was better because this might just hit close to the top of list of favorite books. I look forward to reading more from this author and to see any improvements he has in future novels. I recommend this book for anyone who has a love of sci-fi, mythology, and legends of our history. 3.5 stars ~AJ
