To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I'm surprised about some of the bad reviews for this book, since it's the best I have read from this author (and I read them all). Not just one space battle after another, characters are a bit better developed (not the strong side of Mr. Stewart) and the amount of bad grammar and spelling are tolerable. Which brings me to the question how an author of this standing does not qualify for a good editing service? Especially the Mages series is full of them, really bad actually. The Mages Series is wonderful, not as good as this one, but good. Again, overall a very good book, much better balanced in its story line, definitiv worth reading. It only gets 4 stars because of the bad (or none) editing.
