It's a blog! Mainly of book reviews.
Probably the best novel from Hamilton since Fallen Dragon. Much less padding, fewer viewpoint characters, no obviously, horribly wrong science.
The main problem here is a large section following a character called Slvasta that is highly repetitious of material following Edeard in the Void Trilogy. Fortunately it gets more interesting later when these correspondences are subverted. Nevertheless, it's much more fun when following Nigel Sheldon.
Typically of Hamilton it's more a fun adventure story than any interesting subtext but it's definitely one of his best such.
