"Exciting read that keeps getting better"

Rating: 9 / 10

This story is an easy, fast-paced read. The story is engaging and really grabbed from the first complication. There are multiple narrators, each of them distinct and fascinating. After seven chapters, I can't pick a favorite yet.

I think what really impresses me most is the level of creativity. All the layers of detail and the sheer amount of thought put into it, it just keeps getting better with every chapter. I'm getting a good feel for all the societies and characters without being bogged down by info dumps and such. The story keeps moving without me losing track of who's who, and what's going on with whom as the POVs shift from chapter to chapter.

I'm not much of a sic-fi reader but I'll be sticking with New Earth 6.

My only complaint is that in the first two chapters, the descriptions are a tad thin, but right after, she does a fantastic job of balancing description, character, backstory, and forward action. I'm a big lover of descriptive detail, so this just might be personal preference.
