Read full description of the books:
Why did you have to make this six hundred and seventy something EFFING pages???? And so damn dull I don’t want to finish???
It could be a weird but fun retro gem.
But, OK, to be fair, I should take some of the blame for why this did not work out. I know it is a very rare plus size novel that I like, and I had seen many of the luke warm reviews, but what the hell man, this had promise?!!?
Author Kevin J. Anderson has given us what could be a fun space opera written in the style of Poul Anderson, or perhaps even a Heinlein juvenile. Actually, in the one third of the book I was able to get through before abandoning, Anderson made clear references to many classic SF books and writers: Asimov, Silverberg, Le Guin, Larry Niven, etc. And much of his characterization was good; I was especially liking the virus doctor and investigator with issues.
I mean, it was nominated for a Hugo.
But it was just too long, TOO GODDAMN LONG!!! And just not enough going on, too little to hang onto, too little and too stretched to make me care. I could not take anymore and the rest of the novel looked like a marathon course that I just had no interest in. And this is supposed to be the first in a series???
No thank you.
You’re making a series anyway, so just find a good stopping place somewhere around 250-300 pages and wrap it up and maybe someone else will tune in later for the sequels.
True, Anderson’s imaginative world building is superb and really the highlight of this work, what with the intricate Roamer clan backstory and the off stage references to a galactic struggle. I also liked the short chapters and the shifting perspective narrative,
I just could not go on. When a book is a chore, it’s not worth it. Life’s too short and there are too many other great books.

Read information about the authorYes, I have a lot of books, and if this is your first visit to my amazon author page, it can be a little overwhelming. If you are new to my work, let me recommend a few titles as good places to start. I love my Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. series, humorous horror/mysteries, which begin with DEATH WARMED OVER. My steampunk fantasy adventures, CLOCKWORK ANGELS and CLOCKWORK LIVES, written with Neil Peart, legendary drummer from Rush, are two of my very favorite novels ever. And my magnum opus, the science fiction epic The Saga of Seven Suns, begins with HIDDEN EMPIRE. After you've tried those, I hope you'll check out some of my other series.
I have written spin-off novels for Star Wars, StarCraft, Titan A.E., and The X-Files, and is the co-author of the Dune prequels. His original works include the Saga of Seven Suns series and the Nebula Award-nominated Assemblers of Infinity. He has also written several comic books including the Dark Horse Star Wars collection Tales of the Jedi written in collaboration with Tom Veitch, Predator titles (also for Dark Horse), and X-Files titles for Topps.
I serve as a judge in the Writers of the Future contest.
