Once they pushed big ships through the cobalt glory of the Nada-Continuum. But faster than light isn't fast enough anymore.

Once they pushed big ships through the cobalt glory of the Nada-Continuum, but faster than light isn't fast enough anymore. The interfaces of the Keilor-Vincicoff Organisation bring planets light years distant a simple step away. Then a man with half a face offers ex-engineman Ralph Mirren the chance to escape his ruined life and push a ship to an undiclosed destination. The Nada-Continuum holds the key to Ralph's future. What he cannot anticipate is its univerala importance-nor the mystery awaiting him on the distant colony world

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Detailed storytelling! Very believable look into the future of space travel. A world well described and characters you begin to feel for. The adventure is full of turns and twists within reason. It is difficult to figure out the ending but makes complete sense as you read along. It carries you. I stayed up too late reading a few times!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not typical science fiction. Eric Brown really does write a different kind of science fiction. Yes, there is space travel and it takes place in the future. Yes, there are other planets and aliens. But all the same, there's something more philosophical about his novels. They are not simply escapist novels that allow you to pretend at a possible, yet unlikely future. They go to a much deeper level and really make you think about humanity and our place, not just in the world, but the solar system and beyond. The kind of impact we are capable of making, for better or for worse. Don't go into reading this expecting Star Wars or Halo. This is on a whole other level and is definitely worth a read to anyone who likes sci fi for more than lightsabers and FTLT.
