Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.5 / 5 Definitely not the worst books that I read. I think some of the characters actions weren't consistent throughout based on their personalities nor did I buy the romance BUT I liked the plot. Reminded me of Stargate or Star Wars or Firefly or...one of them space shows with portals. I'll definitely pick up the sequel
