3.0 out of 5 stars Missed Potential July 17 2013
By D. Scott Roche - Published on
There are some issues with the writing in this novel. First, and this is mostly a stylistic preference, he writes in present tense. That can work to lend a sense of immediacy. I've seen it used to good effect, but here for some reason it doesn't work for me. It also feels like he really wanted to write this in first person, since we get BC's internal monologue. As it is it's written in kind of a 3rd person limited.

My biggest beef with the story is that it's listed as a science fiction adventure. There's definitely a science fiction element, but I never got a sense of adventure. The story of an assassin, particularly one that's being used by the Vatican in a war torn future, should be action packed. Approximately a third of this story is dedicated to his imprisonment and subsequent theologically based brainwashing. The few times there is action it feels glossed over. This is less James Bond or even Dan Brown than it needs to be.

There's a fair amount of strong language, itself not something I ordinarily object to, but for some reason it was particularly jarring in the second half of the story.

This starts slow, but really turns into a very interesting look at our modern world juxtaposed in the next century. I am also enjoying the entire trilogy. Worth the asking price on kindle

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping April 15 2014

I was originally offered a free download of book one from the author. I dove in and honestly found myself REALLY ENGAGED by this book. So much so I opted in and purchased the other 2 books in the trilogy. Great sci fi, great characters. I actually care what happens to BC, and that's rare these days. Great work. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Book is facinating, I wish they'd make it into a BLOCKBUSTER MOVIE! Feb. 18 2014

A Dr RECOMMENDED THIS BOOK during one of his speeches/lectures and so I got it and was amazed from the very start at how much of an 'EASY READ' it rolls off the pages as an 'A' CLASS MOVIE.
Do yourself a favor and read this book...Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome trilogy Sept. 23 2011

Alright first let me ask a question. Do you like Heinlein, Asimov, Clarke, Robinson, Niven, Hamilton? If you like any or all of those authors and their works, you'll like this series too. A great spacer trilogy that gives you a little of everything you'd want and at times makes you wonder if you are reading some lost work by Clarke, Asimov, or Heinlein but at the same time having a distinct flair that is Mike Luoma. Check this trilogy out, then read past it in the same world with the Alibi Jones stories.
