Good job on the review :) and woah, it seems like a lot goes on in this book! I've only read a few pages so far but I can already tell that the main character is likable.

Just downloaded my free copy - really excited for this one! I have always been a fan of sci-fi and this one sounds like it really goes back to the genre's roots! Love the idea of a living-breathing ship. Thanks for the great review!

This sounds promising. I like Sci-fi okay, but not usually inter-galactal plots. I might give this a try. The idea of the four hero types most interests me.

Great review! The plot seems interesting and I like that you mentioned that characterization is a strong point in the book. Although I normally get confused by sci-fi books, this one looks like it would be easy to understand. Thanks for the recommendation!

Great review! Science fiction isn't really my genre, so I don't think this is the book for me. I'm glad that you enjoyed it so much!

This type of sci-fi is not the type I usually read. I find it curious that the four heroes of the legend are from completely different eras and are from our planet. The AI spaceship is also fascinating. Great job on your review. It is informative and helpful.

It seems interesting how this team of characters crosses cultures and time periods. Their teamwork could play out in so many different ways, and I'm curious to know how they negotiate through their differences. Also - a spaceship with a personality!!

Solaris Seethes by Janet McNulty looks like a great book, and reading your review only reinforced my opinion. Everyone needs a little adventure in their lives, and Solaris Seethes looks like a fun space story I thing folks of all ages will love. Thank you for a very comprehensive and enjoyable review that makes me want to read this immediately!??????

I haven't read much (if any...) sci-fi, but this book sounds like it has a captivating plot with unique characters! And since it's free today, I might just have to check it out. Thanks for the great review!

Wow! Alien planets and civilizations, characters from different time lines, Artificial Inteligence, if this is not a great Sci-fi story I dont know what is. You did a fantastic job on the review, thank you for that.

I like the sound of the incorporation of old legends. That usually adds to the story. Thanks for the informative and thoughtful review!
