My Review:
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is hard-core science fiction. I'm not sure I was really ready for that after having just finished a fantasy book. This book was a level of science fiction that even as a scifi fan I wasn't quite prepared for. That being said, it was hard for me to get into having not read the first in the series.
I found the AI's were a nice way to introduce new "characters" without them having to take up physical space in the scenes. I'm not sure I liked the nano-bots, it was too easy to use them as a way to look forward during battle. I am still on the fence with the mink links between some of the characters.
If you like hard-core science fiction, this series is for you. If you like a little more fantasy mixed in, then you may not enjoy this book so much.
