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.
The first 2 books in this series were pretty good science fiction. I caught a glimpse of it in the 2nd book then this one is a straight LGBTQ novel. If it would have been classified properly I would never have wasted my money and time attempting to read it.
Perhaps he's trying to get in touch with his feminine side or trying to impress women and nonbinaries, etc., with his sensitivity. Or maybe he's giving a nod to political correctness. Who knows; but I can't even finish reading this book and will not be buying the other 4 books.
I may give some of his other series a try but will have to think long and hard before spending money on them.
I really did not like this book.... The language was weird and the story complicated in a weird way as well... I love a lot of the mordern sci-fi writers, Scalzi, Blant, Nutall and Chaney etc.... I love their strait down to earth way of telling a story.... Darkness Beyond is not at all like that...
If you want to give it a try, buy the first book, not the set :)
