This was certainly a book that was difficult to put down.Non stop action, a blend of SF & almost Sword & Sorcery as only Wagner & Drake could do.It will never o down as a great classic, but it's certainly one of the most enjoyable reads I've ever had.

Most of all, it was well written.The characters were well developed, the scenes vivid & story's progression logical.I was a bit put off that one character's motives were revealed too early & bluntly, IMO.I think the book would have been better if that had developed through the story's progress.There was certainly opportunity for it.Still, it wasn't a major shortcoming & the only flaw in an otherwise wonderful work.
