I think this review had a whole lot of information that was a little bit difficult to digest. I am not too big into sci-fi, but I am beginning to enjoy it a bit more. This sounds like it could be a not so distant future for us!

I love a good Sci-Fi story. Sounds very captivating and we'll thought out. Nothing is worse than a half baked idea but based on the official review, I'm very much inclined to add it to my shelf. As a matter of fact I already have. Even though it's futuristic I'm hoping it has some humanity that gives you a sense of warm. Can't wait to read it.

I agree with an above comment, sounds like a Star Trek reminiscent story line. Or the Foundation series. Will definitely be checking this out.

I found the review very interesting and compelling. The characters sound like they have superhero abilities and I think the fantastic space battles would be appealing to action loving readers. It sounds like a very entertaining book.

I guess this might prove to be a great science fiction. With all the aliens and things it is quite an interesting science fiction.

I enjoy a good sci-fi and don't mind a bit of over-the-top perfection. As long as the story is exciting.

The info-dump on the first couple of pages put me off, I'm afraid. Glad the reviewer enjoyed it though!

I enjoyed reading your well-written, thorough review. I agree that these types of books usually have characters that the smartest, most versatile people in the universe. It's a bit annoying. Although the subject matter is not my cup of tea, I am glad you liked the book.

Sound review! I very much enjoy sci-fi, especially when it comes to a fast paced adventure. Having the character genetically engineered brings a new twist to alien interaction.
