Note: I received a free electronic copy in exchange for an unbiased review (but liked it enough to buy a copy anyway)
This start of a new series isn't so much Space Opera, but more Soap Opera. The flat characters are even more present in this one. In most cases Stewart only knows how to make characters come over as "strong" by making them super powered Mary Sues. This series, with no magic and wonky science relies so much more on good character writing and unfortunately, this is not Stewart's strong suite, especially this female lead is flat as a board.
Throw in very little world building, weird politic intrigue that is just montonely stated without the intrigue and you get a very bland beginning to a series.
I have enjoyed a lot of his previous work, but this one is just not good enough. Maybe slow down the 3 books a year schedule and spend more time on building story. Stewart obviously has an imaginative mind and is able to come up with great fusions of urban, sci-fi and fantasy genres.
Well I needn't have worried. The background against which the story is set was described beautifully and the characterisation was also strong, though I'm expecting more character development as we move through what I hope will be a long series. As usual, the action was good and well described too.
All in all a great series opener. Looking forward to the next one!
Not a patch on the Kyle’s, Or Damien’s
